Abstract : A standardized test procedure for simulating the dynamic wetting and solidification behavior during melt spinning was designed and is being used to generate pheonomenological information for various combinations of melt and substrate that would be desired. Real differences in dynamic wetting/solidification patterns have been found and suggested correlations with melt spinning performance have been proposed. Concurrently a set of melt spinning experiments are being conducted to provide complementary information about the interrelation of melt puddle/substrate dynamics with processability and product characteristics.
