Article title

Determination of thermal properties of polylactide

Title variants
Languages of publication
The article contains information related to a material that is polylactide, also known as polylactic acid. The results of study presented in the article are related to the PLA moldings made with the use of the 65 - 160 C1 injection molding machine. The publication presents the results of thermal analysis obtained by using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thanks to which the thermal properties of polylactide were determined. The results that have been presented relate to the moldings obtained with different parameters of the injection molding process, while parameters such as the temperature of mold or injection molding are being changed during the process. Conducted examinations are aimed to determine the thermal properties.
