where did you get the data for cooling times?

Hello, PJ!

Hope you are doing well. Thank you for your query.

Cooling time mainly refers to the time elapsed from the end of holding pressure to the opening of the mold. This value depends on various factors like the wall thickness, product shape, mold temperature, melt properties, etc. To get a better product, the cooling time should be as low as possible.

You can search google thoroughly or visit industrial yards to learn about the actual cooling time values.
