The fact that the rate of crystallisation rate of Polyethylene is higher than nucleating agent in the other hand Polypropylene is recognized as a relatively easy material to nucleate. This is because the rate of crystallization is low enough to allow the nucleating agent to have a direct impact on the nucleation density. Conversely.
This is probably the reason there has been such minimal commercial activity in the area of nucleating agents for polyethylene.
But Now there is an emerged commercial nucleating agent announced by the famous Milliken company
find it in the PDF file attached
The purpose of the discussion is:
To get a good approach for how could the nucleating agent work with the fast crystallisation rate of polyethylene ?
Is this could be Nucleating Agent For HDPE for blown film and blow molding application?
Is this a good approach for the implementation of nanotechnology? if so, what is the reliability degree of such a process from your point of view?
