Nucleating Agent Masterbatch
Due to excellent rigidity, lower density and integral hinging properties, Polypropylene Homopolymer (PPHP) is widely used in manufacturing ‘house-hold’ products. Some of the products demand clarity due to their application, such as ‘keep-fresh’ food container, bucket, mug, disposable cups, medical syringes etc. Optically Polypropylene Homopolymer is translucent. Addition of “Nucleating Agent” in Polypropylene, a semi crystalline polymer can improve clarity. “Nucleating Agents” are heterogeneous nucleators. Presence of “Nucleating Agent” in molten Polypropylene forms a heterogeneous surface. During cooling process, very small, uniform crystallites form within Polypropylene, thereby improving product clarity.
