Crystallization

Application: Nakamura Model for Polymer Crystallization Kinetics During Cooling (Dr. Elena Moukhina, Dr. Stefan Schmölzer, NETZSCH Gerätebau GmbH) contains the kinetic modelling of influence of cooling rate on the crystallization rate and final degree of crystallization of PET.

Rheology

Webinar "Understanding the cure behavior with rheology kinetics" was held by Dr. Adrian Hill and Dr. Elena Moukhina. This webinar introduced the benefits of going beyond standard rheological analysis with using rheology data in Kinetics Neo.

NETZSCH Application Note AN-221 "Kinetic Analysis of the Shear Viscosity to Predict the Curing Behavior of a 2-Part Epoxy Adhesive" by Claire Strasser, Dr. Elena Moukhina and Torsten Remmler. Shear viscosity for the curing of a 2-part epoxy resin during heating was investigated by means of the Kinexus ultra+ with HTC. The rheological measurements with different heating rates were used to perfom the kinetic analysis of the viscosity data during the curing by means of Kinetics Neo.
