PE nucleation agentHyperform HPN-20E, a PE nucleation agent, is available globally to enable higher peak crystallization temperatures that can cut cycle times and drive productivity improvements of 10 to 20 percent (depending upon processing and resin design), the co. states. It can also increase oxygen and water vapor barrier performance between 20 to 40 percent, providing the possibility of extended shelf life of perishable contents such as dry foods, dairy products, vitamins and nutraceuticals. This technology is appropriate for high-density polyethylene (HDPE) used in blown film, extrusion blow molding and injection molding, as well as in linear-low-density PE (LLDPE), especially C4 gas phase LLDPE.
