Melt Flow Index FAQs

Why is MFI testing important?

MFI testing is extremely useful for assessing material consistency and quality, optimizing extrusion parameters for precise filament production, and selecting tailored materials for optimal results. It offers valuable insights for assessing project feasibility, ensuring compatibility with our filament extrusion process through a low-risk investment.

Why do you offer an MFI analysis?

MFI testing is more than just a procedural step; it stands as a strategic tool elevating our service standards, aiding precise, expert handling of each project for success. It epitomizes our dedication to innovation and quality, reinforcing the trust and reliability we aim to establish with every customer.

Can I do the MFI analysis myself?

Our MFI instrument is called the Zwick Roell C Flow and it’s a compact, impressive, but also costly device. By allowing us to conduct the analysis, you won't need to purchase a device, yet you'll also gain immediate access to the most up-to-date knowledge in this field.

How long does the research take?

The duration varies depending on several factors. Initially, we need to engage in discussions regarding your materials and receive a sample. Our expert conducts the tests using our in-house MFI equipment within a day and then proceeds to compile the report.
