Previous research in co-injection moulding has produced viscosity ratio guidelines for skin and core components, which must be followed if good core distribution is to be achieved. However, by examining two phase systems of PMMA-PC, which fall within the recommended viscosity range, this work shows that viscosity matching of materials is not a sufficient requirement for interfacial stability. The transparency of the materials allows areas of interfacial mixing to show up as streaks in the mouldings, so that factors affecting stability can be determined. One system is found to be more stable than the others. Explanations for such effects are given by consideration of interfacial mixing, viscosity, tooling geometry, injection speeds, interfacial stresses and shear in multilayered mouldings.
