Measurement and Analysis on Dynamics Cold Crystallization Parameter of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Sheet by Vibration Force Field
Physics mechanics properties of polymer materials don’t only depend on their chemical constitution, molecular weight and distribution of molecular weight, but also depend on their agglomerate configuration. The effect of vibration on the microstructure and mechanical properties of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) sheets, obtained through vibration plasticating extruder in low temperature, were studied systematically. Crystalline polymer is analyzed by differential scanning calorimetry(DSC), wide angle X ray diffraction(WAXD). The test result which represents parameters of crystalline structure is helped to judge the outside factors for crystalline structure, such as melting point, crystallinity and heat of fusion by DSC and crystallinity, crystal plane distance and grain size by WAXD, and canning electron microcopy (SEM). The results indicate that the vibration extrudate in low temperature has higher crystallinity, perfect crystallite, and strong inter-spherulite ties.
