Relationships between processing conditions and mechanical properties of PA12 tubes. The EWF approach

Abstract : In polyamide 12 (PA12) tube extrusion, calibration is the key step of the process that affects the subsequent mechanical properties. In previous work it has been shown that according to the calibration conditions, a very oriented skin layer may be created, which has been correlated to an important decrease of elongation at break. In this paper, we present new results showing a good correlation between molecular orientation and fracture toughness, as evaluated by the EWF (Essential Work of Fracture) approach. They concern notched specimens and confirm the results obtained in classical tensile testing. The specific essential work of fracture is very sensitive to the orientation generated in the skin region by appropriate processing conditions: it decreases from the external to the inner regions of the tube, and increases with skin orientation.
