Scientific molding takes the typical plastics injection molding process to the next level by developing structured studies and methods to characterize a particular plastics process or polymer. It is, quite literally, applying science and statistics to the process of melting, forming, and cooling a mass of molten plastic into a desired shape. The behavior of polymers is, in fact, very complex and requires hundreds of machine settings, numbers, and protocols. Fortunately for us, all these numbers, settings, and intrinsic properties of various polymers can be summed up into just four main variables; Heat, Pressure, Flow Rate, and Cooling Rate. This is the power of scientific injection molding, the ability to navigate through some of the very complex inner workings of the rheology (study of complex flow) of polymers and the non-Newtonian type behavior seen with them.
