Welcome to our new Instron Community Blog hosted by Instron. It is a compilation of the freshest, brightest, most-talented minds that Instron has to offer. The world of materials science is so vast and encompasses the broadest range of industries, materials, and challenges that no one person can possibly possess all the knowledge required to be the resident expert – or master of materials science. It takes a small army behind the scenes collaborating and sharing technical know-how, experiences, and ideas to present the most accurate, relevant, and timely information to you – our readers. 

We invite you to tell us who you are, share your stories and talk about your experiences. Join the Instron Community.

Evaluating the Quality of High Performance Plastics Molding

When chemical companies invest in developing high-performance polymers—such as filled polyesters, PA, PC, LCP, and PEEK—to engineer automotive and electronic components, they could potentially experience issues with a high melting temperature during the injection molding phase. It’s crucial to understand that even if the mold filling has been successfully executed, the molded parts can still show significant failures, such as cracks or warps and aesthetic defects.

Challenges with Steel

The continual drive for improved safety and increased fuel efficiency within the automotive industry hasn't escaped anyone; the message is repeatedly broadcast via news outlets and advertised by auto manufactures themselves. The majority of new car models compete fiercely for the most impressive fuel efficiency (mpg or L/100km) figures in class. As auto manufactures strive for improved fuel economy, it is clear that material selection will continue to be an important factor in weight reduction.
