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.

However, for crystallization at 180 or 200[degrees]C, which was above the melting temperature of PVDF (170[degrees]C), only the PET phase crystallizes under these conditions, and when the composite was rapidly cooled to room temperature, the PVDF phase did not have enough time to crystallize properly leading to many defective crystals, which decreased the melting temperature of PVDF phase.
