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.

From 21/34 men for whom the vibrator failed, semen cold be obtained by electroejaculation (ee). 11 pregnancies reported. 9 healthy children born. buy viagra online 52/121 became pregnant, 39 by iui alone. All patients undergoing ivf had higher cycle fecundity than did those undergoing iui (p<0. online pharmacy generic viagra 001). The rates of spontaneous abortion and multiple gestations were 23% and 12%, respectively. Vibrostimulation in supranuclear lesions was successful in 133 patients, and in 5 more after physostigmine injection. Ee was successful in all 7 infranuclear lesions and in 4 supranuclear patients failing with vibrostimulation. 8 more supranuclear patients responded to ee and physostigmine.

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.
