Nitrogen use in Plastic Injection Moulding


In plastic injection moulding Nitrogen is often used as the assist gas that prevents oxidation of the plastic that leaves the mould with a clean surface finish. Nitrogen is also injected with the plastic creating air channels which results in less plastic needed without cutting the strength.

Why choose a Nitrogen generator over bottled Nitrogen gas?
