Crystallization

The act of selling an asset and immediately buying the same asset back. One does this for tax purposes; that is, one sells the asset in order to realize a capital loss, but buys it back because one believes it still represents a solid investment. Most tax agencies have rules forbidding or limiting crystallization.

The degree of crystallinity was always slightly lower for the nanocomposite sample, indicating a disturbing effect of the clay particles on the crystallization processes.
From the nonisothermal crystallization analysis, the crystallization peak temperature of nonisothermal crystallization processes of PEEK80, PEEK94, and PEEK129 can be compared in Fig.
In other words, the two roles acted by nucleation and growth in different crystallization processes may present different weight factors.
A systematic study of the melt behavior and crystallization kinetics of nylon 1111 in isothermal and nonisothermal crystallization processes were carried out using DSC.
In this work, attention is also focused on the isothermal crystallization processes of these composites from the melt in order to analyze the effect of the concentration of TLCP on the morphological changes particularly on the growth of PPS crystals.
The combined Avrami-Ozawa equation was used to analyze the nonisothermal crystallization processes of the LDPE and LDPE/Al composites, the results showing that the combined Avrami-Ozawa equation can successfully describe the nonisothermal crystallization process.
This is probably because of the secondary crystallization processes taking place during nonisothermal crystallization of PP in the presence of kenaf fibers, but also to the fact that at a given temperature, the crystallization process proceeding at different cooling rates, is at different stage: at higher cooling rates, the crystallization is at an early stage, while at lower cooling rates, the process is toward the end of crystallization stage.
