Flash DSC crystallization study for blown film grade bimodal HDPE resins. I. Isothermal kinetics and its application of the blown film modeling uri icon


  • © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.Isothermal ultra-cooling crystallization tests were conducted on three blown film grade bimodal HDPE resins using an ultrafast scanning calorimeter, the Flash DSC. Isothermal tests were performed to study the regime transition, the thermal nucleation and the spherulitical growth using the Hoffman-Lauritzen theory in a range between 90 °C and 116 °C. Temperature profile estimations using such data were in good agreement with actual blown film process data. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J. Polym. Sci., Part B: Polym. Phys. 2016, 54, 2425¿2431.
