Fluorescence Based Temperature Measurements and Applications to Real-Time Polymer Processing

Published

Author(s)

Anthony J. Bur, M Vangel, S C. Roth

Abstract

Fluorecent dyes doped into polymer resins were used to monitor the true resin temperature during procesing. Two examples of real-time process monitoring are presented: first, the effects of shear heating during extrusion are presented , and second, the effects of poor temperature control during extrusion are observed.
