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.
