Your risk of developing a type of nhl called enteropathy associated t cell lymphoma. generic viagra Diagnosis of non-hodgkin's lymphoma your gp will ask about your symptoms and examine you. He or she may also ask about your medical history and take a blood test. viagra reviews women If your gp thinks you have nhl, he or she will refer you to a hospital specialist for further tests, which may include the following. viagra generic A biopsy - this is a small sample of tissue, which is taken from your lymph node. The sample will be sent to a laboratory for testing. A ct scan, to see whether nhl has spread to other parts of your body. A bone marrow biopsy, to check whether nhl has spread to your bone marrow. Treatment of non-hodgkin's lymphoma not all nhls require treatment immediately - low grade nhls may need little or no treatment for months or years. Your treatment will depend on the type of nhl you have and whether or not it has spread. instructions for viagra 100mg The main types of treatment are chemotherapy, radiotherapy and monoclonal antibody therapy. A team of professionals will help you through your treatment. viagra cost This team may include a nurse specialist, a haematologist (a doctor who specialises in treating conditions of the blood), a haemo-oncologist (a doctor who specialises in the treatment of blood cancers such as nhl), a radiotherapist (a doctor who specialises in treating conditions using radiation) and a counsellor. generic viagra without prescription After treatment you will have regular check ups with your doctor to see if there are any signs of the cancer coming back. Chemotherapy chemotherapy uses medicines to destroy cancer cells. The medicines will usually be injected into your arm, but you may need to take tablets or capsules instead. buy generic viagra A combination of medicines may be given to you over a number of days - this is often followed by a break in treatment for a few weeks. viagra without a prescription canada The treatment cycle will then be restarted. The breaks between treatments allow your body to recover from the side-effects of the medicines. viagra online next day delivery You may be given steroid medicines (eg prednisolone) as part of your chemotherapy treatment. You may need very high doses of che. instructions for viagra 100mg

Penn State University Study

“A Study on the Effect of Nan-O-Sil ASD on Cooling Time Reduction” was undertaken by Jonathan Meckley, Pennsylvania State University at Erie, The Behrend College , Erie, PA (see technical paper 1) that will be presented at ANTEC in May 2010, that demonstrated the Nan-O-Sil ASD additive can reduce cycle time by as much as 70% in semi-crystalline materials.

In PP the cooling time was reduced 77%.

In glass filled PBT, it is 70%.

Glass-filled Nylon has a 67% reduction without negative physical properties.

Nan-O-Sil ASD

A unique colloidal silica processing aid from Energy Strategy Associates, Inc. slashes molding cycle times. Ultra-fine bright white silica particles have been shown in laboratory and commercial field trials to reduce injection molding cycle times by 20% to 30% in polypropylene, filled and unfilled nylon, PBT, Acetal, glass filled PC, PPS, PEEK, and Rigid PVC (read more: PVC Results Summary | Nanosil ASD Study). This processing advantage is accompanied by retention and improvements in key physical properties at low loadings (0.8% wt.).

Nan-O-Sil ASD additive is an ultra high purity, amorphous (no crystallinity), colloidal fumed silica where the particles are discrete and non agglomerated in the form of a bright white powder. Importantly the individual particles are spherical shaped and range in particle size from 0.02 to 0.55 microns (20 to 550 manometers).

Nan-O-Sil ASD improves color dispersion. Blues are bluer. Greens are greener. Nan-O-Sil ASD reduces flow lines and surface defects. Nan-O-Sil ASD is easy to mix with resin pellets in a blender so melt pre-compounding is not required.

Subsequent to this paper/study we have determined that the cycle time reduction provided by Nan-O-sail is a function of nucleation dynamics (see Thermal Kinetics Study)

Major Key Benefits of Nan-O-Sil

  • Nanosil ASD reduces the Injection Molding Cycle time by 30 % to 40 % for most plastics resins like PP, PE, nylons, PBT, PC, LCP, PEEK, and Rigid PVC (read more: PVC Results Summary | Nanosil ASD Study).
  • Nanosil ASD reduces and often eliminates warpage of a molded parts such as rectangular boxes, and other complex geometries.
  • Nanosil ASD Significantly improves the color dispersion and hence it helps to cut down the color concentrate amount resulting in enormous cost savings.
  • Nanosil ASD improves critical part tolerances.
  • Nanosil ASD improves strength properties like tensile strength and toughness of many resins like nylons, PP, PE, and PBT.
  • Nanosil ASD reduces the flow lines and weld lines and improves the overall dimensional stability of the molded parts.
  • It only requires less than 1% (0.8%) of Nanosil ASD (less than three cents of the cost of this additive) to attain all the above benefits.
