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.

Year. free viagra samples by mail When the tumor has not spread out of the pancreas but cannot be removed, radiation therapy and chemotherapy together may be recommended. When the tumor has spread (metastasized) to other organs such as the liver, chemotherapy alone is usually used. viagra online The standard chemotherapy drug is gemcitabine, but other drugs may be used. para que es viagra 20 mg Gemcitabine can help about 25% of patients. Viagra viagra en viagra Patients whose tumor cannot be totally removed, but who have a blockage of the tubes that transport bile (biliary obstruction) must have that blockage relieved. para que es viagra 20 mg There are two approaches: surgery placement of a tiny metal tube (biliary stent) during ercp managing pain and other symptoms is an important part of treating advanced pancreatic cancer. viagra without a doctor prescription Palliative care tams and hospice can help with pain and symptom management, and provide psychological support for patients and their families during the illness. cheap viagra Support groups you can ease the stress of illness by joining a support group with members who share common experiences and problems (see cancer - support group). Viagra 36 hour price Outlook (prognosis) some patients with pancreatic cancer that can be surgically removed are cured. buy cheap viagra However, in more than 80% of patients the tumor has already spread and cannot be completely removed at the time of diagnosis. buy cheap viagra Chemotherapy and radiation are often given after surgery to increase the cure rate (this is called adjuvant therapy). buy viagra online For pancreatic cancer that cannot be removed completely with surgery, or cancer that has spread beyond the pancreas, a cure is not possible and the average survival is usually less than 1 year. cheap generic viagra Such patients should consider enrolling in a clinical trial (a medical research study to determine the best treatment). viagra given to women Ninety-five percent of the people diagnosed with this cancer will not be alive 5 years later. take viagra with viagra together Possible complications blood clots depression infections liver problems pain weight loss when to contact a medical professional call for an appointment with your health care provider if you have: abdominal pain that does not go away back pain loss of appetite unexplained fatigue or weight loss other symptoms of this disorder prevention if you smoke, stop smoking.
