Clever Tool for Short Cooling Times

How do nucleating agents influence the crystallization behavior of your polymer in the mold? To answer questions like these, the kinetics of the crystallization reaction is determined for mixtures of polypropylene with different nucleating agents. The results are used to carry out predictions on the product behavior for any temperature programs.

The precise prediction of polypropylene´s crystallization behavior is of great economic importance. Not only do important processing Parameters – such as mold temperature and time, and therefore productivity – depend on it, but so do the mechanical properties of the manufactured product. DSC measurements are helpful in precisely assessing the different of different nucleating agents. Click here to read the complete article.
