As an integrated network that incorporates underwater pelletising, drying, and crystallising, Nordson says it is designed for precise control of material temperatures throughout the process, preventing production and quality problems caused by insufficient crystallisation and excess levels of amorphous material.
Reductions in cycle times of up to 25 per cent are achieved through a combination of shorter injection- and holding pressure times, faster crystallisation speed and the option to use processing temperatures 30 to 40A C lower than with competing polyamides, which allows cooling time to be cut.
It is the manifestation of light, concentration and perfect crystallisation of it, a metaphor of our own search for perfection.
Moody's said the downgrades reflected, to differing degrees, the combined pressures on the banks' standalone credit profiles from the following factors: the crystallisation of losses on banks' holdings of Greek bonds after Greece's debt exchange and an acceleration in problem loan formation in 2011 and Moody's expectation of continued severe asset-quality pressure from the weak operating environments in Cyprus and Greece.
The extraordinarily young age of this lunar sample either means that the Moon solidified significantly later than previous estimates - and therefore the moon itself is much younger than previously believed - or that this sample does not represent a crystallisation product of the original magma ocean, says researcher James Connelly of the Centre for Star and Planet Formation.
Persistently low interest rates, increased time to pay agreements by HMRC, and a supportive attitude from secured lenders anxious to avoid the potential crystallisation of losses on their balance sheet, have all helped.
When manufacturing plastic pallets the load-bearing capacity is dependent on several factors, for one thing on the molecular structure of the plastic used and for another, a significant contribution can be made to the strength of the plastic by crystallisation.
He says he has come to love Wales, its archeology and its history and this is an unsentimental book of scholarship as much as a labour of love, and a crystallisation of one of our principal cultural influences.
