dc.description.abstract The rheological behavior of highly filled polymer systems used in powder injection molding (PIM) technology strongly influences the final properties of the products. In this study, the capillary flow data of multi-component polymer binders- based on polyethylene, paraffin, ethylene-based copolymers, and polyethylene glycol-compounded with three various hard-metal carbide powders were employed. The rheology of such highly filled (up to 50 vol%) multiphase systems is necessarily a complex phenomenon characterized by strain dependent, non-Newtonian properties complicated by flow instabilities and yield. Over 15 mathematical models proposed for highly filled systems were tested, some of them calculating the maximum filler loading. Due to the complex structure of the filler (irregular shape, particle size distribution) and a multi-component character of the binder, the applicability of these models varied with the powder-binder systems studied. However, the particular values of maximum loadings are in good accordance with the predictions based on powder characteristics. Simple modification of Frankel-Acrivos model to the systems containing unimodal hard-metal carbide powders with particles of an irregular shape and broad particle size distribution gave precise agreement between experimental data and model prediction.
