Enhance HDPE performance with this nucleating agent

| By Chemical Engineering

Hyperform HPN 210 M is a nucleating agent used with injection-molded high-density polyethylenMill wordcloude (HDPE) in material-handling applications. This nucleating agent has a unique crystalline orientation, which imparts HDPE with higher productivity, increased stiffness, reduced warpage and higher heat-deflection temperature (HDT) when compared to traditional HDPE. This allows the HDPE to approach the performance levels of polypropylene (PP) impact copolymers. — Milliken & Co., Spartanburg, S.C.
