Which defect is likely to result from an inconsistent check ring?
All of the above are likely
B and C are likely
Which statement is true about processing polymers?
As the polymer flow rate decreases, the polymer chain orientation increases

None of the above are correct
Which change can decrease the possibility of polymer degradation?
Increase barrel residence time
Increase back pressure
Increase 1st stage injection speed
Increase Screw recovery delay time

Screw speed increases and cushion size decreases
Screw speed decreases and cushion size increases
Screw speed and cushion size increases
Screw speed and cushion size decreases
Which machine mode should be used to mould the air shot/ dry cycle under full processing conditions?
Both A and B are acceptable
Both B and C are acceptable
Which is not 1 of the 4 plastic variables?
Plastic Flow Rate
Pressure is created by:
Resistance to flow
Relief of flow
Diversion of flow
Which adjustment is likely to improve the appearance of flow lines on the moulded part?
Increasing screw speed
Increasing mould temperature
Increasing Back pressure
Increasing Injection Speed
All of the above are likely to improve the appearance of the flow lines

Less than 2% of the overall shot size
About 5% of the overall shot size
About 10% of the overall shot size
About 15% of the overall shot size
About 20% of the overall shot size
During which stage of the process does the polymer in the mould encounter the highest pressure?
