HDPE agrishade nets which protect the plants from excess sunlight and hold soil moisture levels can play an integral role in sectors including agriculture and agribusiness. Most important advantages of agrishades include crop protection, bird protection, insect protection. A tape extruder can produce both agrishade nets and woven sacks from the versatile polymer HDPE.
Adding one more product leads to diversification and helps these processors to increase the product mix and result into a higher average selling price- translating into a higher net profitability. Read HDPE Agrishade Nets offer higher pofitability for entrepreneurs
China, which has till now, imported petrochemicals enters an era where new mega capacity additions are scheduled to come on stream around the same time that mega capacities will commence in the Middle East. As most of the Chinese and Middle East petrochemical additions are expected to coincide, they will push the global ethylene and polyethylene markets into overcapacity. Read Middle East petrochemical industry could face an export challenge to China to get an in-depth view.
Nucleating agents and clarifiers play an integral role in speeding up and tune the crystallization of semi-crystalline polymers, which enhances physical, mechanical and processing properties. The shape and size of the crystallites, the crystallinity ratios and the orientation of crystallites, characterize crystallinity of these polymers. Read Nucleators and clarifying agents improve productivity and mechanical properties to know how their use affect the crystallization morphology, which in turn, is responsible for improved mechanical properties. The article also provides details about classification of nucleating agents and the leading products used in the industry.
