How to Troubleshoot Flash Defect on Two Shot Injection Molding
What is flash in two shot injection molding?
Description 2nd material penetrating between 1st material and its cavity. It is observed frequently where 1st material shrinkage is big and cooling time for 1 material is too long. It is mainly due to too fast shrinking of 1st material.
How to trouble shoot the flash?
1.Optimizing holding pressure & Cooling time to get min shrinking of 1st material till before 2nd shot molding.
2.Select less shrinkage rate material for 1st shot.
3.Changing design as preventive action.
