NUC-141A is a nucleating
and clarifying agent for PP that increases the rate of crystallization at lower processing temperatures, enhancing clarity while reducing cycle time and energy consumption.
Table 1: Sample formulations of neat PBAT and PBAT/PLA biodegradable composite films with various types of nucleating
agent and different levels of PLA and TDI.
Chen, Crystallization Behavior of Biodegradable Poly(L-lactic acid) Filled with a Powerful Nucleating
Agent-N, N'-Bis(benzoyl) Suberic Acid Dihydrazide, J.
The cups were partially filled with GL-1 taken directly from its storage container ("untreated") or autoclaved to diminish its nucleating
Milliken launched the first-ever nucleating
agent for PE in 2006.
To further improve the crystallization of PLLA and develop more nucleating
agents of PLLA, the attention of nucleating
agent has focused on organic compounds.
Two procedures were used to fabricate vapor-foamed microcellular injection molded parts, denoted as PC-NaCl-W and PC-AC-W for using recrystallized NaCl and AC as nucleating
For PE, Milliken's Hyperform HPN 20E nucleating
agent will be on display, showcasing its improved barrier performance and physical properties, as well as productivity gains.
sodium benzoate, sorbitol derivatives, organophosphate salts) have been explored as promising candidates for iPP nucleating
Blending with ductile polymers and addition of plasticizers and nucleating
agents are commonly used to overcome these limitations.
Up to now, nucleating
agents have been used typically to improve PP's stiffness and crystallization rate.
Hyperform is a high-speed nucleating
agent for polypropylene that is said to promote extremely fast crystallization, resulting in improved processing speed and productivity, according to the company.
