When plastic products are manufactured by injection moulding their quality and strength are improved by the use of nitrogen.
Injection Moulding Using Onsite Nitrogen Generation
High-pressure nitrogen is used to ensure that when the liquid plastic is injected into the mould, and as the molten polymer solidifies it is forced by the pressure into every section of the mould. The use of nitrogen in this way helps reduce wall thickness, producing an even surface without deformations or discolouration. Less polymer can be used which aids cooling time and production throughout.
Blanketing for Adhesive Curing with Onsite Nitrogen Generation
Furnaces where adhesive compounds are applied to various tape materials are purged with nitrogen, thus reducing the incidence of poor adhesive bonds, or hazardous atmospheres due to chemicals used for the bonding process.
