Abstract  

In this work, the influence of attapulgite concentration on the nucleating efficiency of isotactic polypropylene (iPP) and on the kinetics of non-isothermal crystallization were ascertained.The study was conducted by DSC. The nucleating efficiency was determined according to the procedure described by Fillon and the kinetics of non-isothermal crystallization was determined using Ozawa's method using cooling rates of 2, 5 and 10C min−1.Our results indicate that both the relative crystallinity and the crystallization temperature increase with filler content and that a maximum occurs at 2% mass/mass filler content. Both parameters decrease with increasing cooling rates. The Ozawa's exponent tended to increase with temperature and filler content.

Abstract  

A crystallization kinetics analysis of several polypropylene-polyethylene (PP-PE), PP-rich copolymers was made by means of differential scanning calorimetry. The crystallization was studied via calorimetric measurements at different cooling rates. Several additives were added to the base material. Some test samples were subjected to artificial ageing processes. A modified isoconversional method was used to describe the crystallization process under non-isothermal conditions. The value of the Avrami parameter was determined for primary and secondary crystallization.

Abstract  

Normally, for Standard DSC, the PerkinElmer power-compensation setting is the low dynamic range mode (LDRM). In this mode, a noise filter is applied to decrease the noise-to-signal ratio, which concomitantly gives rise to a delay in time of the signal measured. In case the signal is expected to be of high intensity — experienced for instance at high scan rates using High Performance DSC (HPer DSC) — the noise filtering could be diminished by which the associated delay in time would be less, leading to a faster response of the instrument, also resulting in an improved resolution. In fact, such can be realized using the faster noise filter of the high dynamic range mode (HDRM) available for the Pyris 1 and Diamond DSCs, which DSCs are both equipped with the HyperDSCTM technique (HyperDSC being the commercial version of HPer DSC). The improvement in response is maximal for high rates like 100–500°C min−1 but even at low rates like 10°C min−1 it is still significant. Thus, taking advantage of HDRM, low-molar substances like indium and 4,4′-azoxyanisole show appreciable increasing height-to-width ratios for signals caused by crystallization, melting and the crystal <>liquid crystal transition respectively. Another advantage, the faster realization of steady state after the starting of the DSC, is of help in case of overlapping starting and transition signals during dynamic crystallization and melting, and during isothermal crystallization as elucidated for a HDPE. For 4,4′-azoxyanisole and for an ethylene-propylene copolymer having a broad melting range, it is shown that such faster response leads to a still better resolution with respect to temperature, even at high scan rates. Thus, the peaks belonging to the crystal-to-liquid crystal and the liquid crystal-to-isotropic liquid transitions of 4,4′-azoxyanisole were completely resolved while a thermal fractionation of the copolymer by the successive self-nucleation and annealing (SSA) technique with good resolution has been realized, both using rates as high as 200°C min−1.
