Nucleating agent improves productivity

Great Lakes’ Clearlite NU 004 is a micronized, sodium benzoate-based product that increases the overall crystallization rate of semi-crystalline polymers such as polypropylene, nylon and polyester, resulting in productivity gains and improved mechanical and physical properties. A second product in the Clearlite family, NU 005, is a sorbitol-based product that, in addition to its nucleating function, also acts as a clarifying agent, reducing haze and increasing polymer transparency.

Clearlite NU 004 and Clearlite NU 005 can be used for a wide variety of applications in the housewares and packaging industries.
