Selection of Nominal Wall Thickness of Plastic Part
👉 Application of the part: – Nominal wall thickness of the part is the major contributor which affect structural requirements such as strength, impact strength, fatigue, deflection, electric load, etc.
👉 Requirements of product approval agency: – Plastic part thickness plays critical role in defining some of the agency approval properties such as UL flammability ratings.
👉 Moldability: – The size of the part and ability of the material to fill the furthest portion could determine the minimum wall thickness of the part.
👉 Every molding process has typical and feasible part thickness limitations.
