Furthermore, because there has been experimental confirmation for both CH precipitation on HAP seeds (16) and HAP precipitation on CH seeds (present study), Craven's (15) notion that "a microcrystal of either structure may serve as a nucleus for growth of the other" has been substantiated.
Because light reflects more evenly with the microcrystal technology, it also helps to provide superior gloss.
It indicates that the microcrystal size of LLDPE-g-MAH is smaller than that of the pristine LLDPE, which leads to the formation of finer spherulites in LLDPE-g-MAH since the spherulite is a complex, polycrystalline structure consisting of many microcrystals.
Light attenuation due to scattering by microcrystals in high-density polyethylene will be taken into account by considering two effects: (a) Scattering of light produced by growing spherulites, which scatter light because of the difference in index of refraction between spherulites and the surrounding amorphous material, and (b) scattering caused by microcrystals within the spherulites.
Epson UltraChrome K3 also produces higher degrees of color fidelity and uses a new high-gloss Microcrystal Encapsulation(TM) resin chemistry to create prints with greater scratch resistance and reduced gloss differential.
A three-level black ink system delivers prints with a higher D-max (black density) and superior shadow, mid-tone and highlight detail, while a high-gloss Microcrystal Encapsulation(TM) resin chemistry provides greater scratch resistance and reduced gloss differential.
By using high-gloss Microcrystal Encapsulation(TM) technology, Epson delivers improved pigment and resin chemistry to provide better scratch resistance and glossier prints.
A high-gloss Microcrystal Encapsulation(TM) resin chemistry is also used to create prints with greater scratch resistance and reduced gloss differential.
Through Epson's new development of MicroCrystal Encapsulation technology, pigment crystals are coated in uniquely engineered resin polymer to ensure even particle size and distribution for a color gamut and gloss that far exceeds other pigment solutions and rivals dye.
This technology is used to produce higher degrees of color fidelity and incorporates a new high-gloss Microcrystal Encapsulation(TM) resin chemistry to create prints with greater scratch resistance and reduced gloss differential.
