Tensile properties of conventional injection molding (IM) PC (polycarbonate) and injection-compression molding (ICM) parts in room and low temperature were compared. The effect of five process parameters (melt and mold temperature, compression distance, delay time and compression force) on residual stress and tensile properties of ICM parts under low temperature was investigated systematically. The results showed that higher tensile yield stress and Modulus were found for ICM parts compared with IM part. Tensile properties of ICM or IM parts were improved under low temperature. Secondary transition were discovered around -40℃ for PC. As the most influenced morphology, the residual stress of ICM parts has the opposite variation as the function of process parameters. Higher melt and molding temperature, bigger compression distance, shorter delay time and smaller compression force can be helpful to give lower residual stress value, and thus to improve the tensile properties. © All right reserved.
