Great Lakes Chemical Corporation has expanded its portfolio of polymer additives with the Clearlite NU 004 nucleating agent and NU 005 nucleating and clarifying agent .

Clearlite NU 004 is a micronized, sodiumbenzoate-based product that increases the overall crystallization rate of semi-crystalline polymers like polypropylene, polyamide and polyester, promising productivity gains and improved mechanical and physical properties. Clearlite NU 005 is a sorbitol-based product that also acts as a clarifying agent, reducing haze and increasing polymer transparency.

Other nucleating agents will be unveiled in the "near future," the company says.
