Melting Flow Indexer
The melt flow index (MFI) is a measure of the ease of flow of the melt of a thermoplastic polymer. It is defined as the weight of polymer in grams flowing in 10 min through a die of specific diameter and length by a pressure applied by a given weight at a given temperature.
About Instrument and its Applications:
The Melt Flow Index Test measures the rate of extrusion of a Thermoplastic material through orifice of Specific Length and Diameter under prescribed conditions of temperature and pressure.

Melt Flow Indexer is used to measure the flow rate of different polymers. The reported Melt Index values helps to distinguish between the different Grades of Polymers. This is due to the fact that plastic materials are seldom manufactured without incorporating additives, which affect the processing characteristics of material like stability and flowability.
For Solid Samples:- Only Solid type samples
