Beta-nucleated polypropylene has increases strength and rigidity than conventional polypropylene which allows for a reduction in weight and cost for applications and improves productivity by lower cycle time. There is a broad spectrum of applications especially in the automotive industry, in electronics, packaging, household appliances, sport articles, construction, textile, agriculture and medical. Beta-nucleated polypropylene is different from conventional polypropylene also in terms of design characteristics and processing. In Beta Nucleation of Polypropylene Dr. Jacoby, one of the world's leading experts in the beta nucleation of Polypropylene (PP) and the applications of beta-nucleated polypropylene, provides insight about the benefits of the material, the required processing know-how to achieve the benefits as well as fundamental knowledge of beta-nucleated polypropylene, knowledge about applications, many examples, and a clear differentiation between the properties and design characteristics of conventional and beta-nucleated polypropylene. The book gives an overview of polypropylene properties, nucleating agents as well as background knowledge for beta nucleation and a detailed account of many applications of beta nucleation for Polypropylenes. Each of the different application areas is discussed in detail with numerous examples of how beta nucleation has been used to add value or produce a new product. Included in each application area will be detailed discussions of the influence of processing conditions on optimizing properties and performance. Beta Nucleation of Polypropylene is a provides a single reference to a wide audience to engineers, scientists, technicians, and business development professionals who could take advantage of the benefits of beta nucleation and assist them in the implementation of this technology. Only comprehensive review of beta-nucleated Polypropylene technology and applications available. The author is one of the world's leading experts in this field. Shows how to achieve cost savings and product improvements using beta nucleation technology compared to existing polypropylene fabrication practices, and enables implementation of the technology.
