In order to explain this behavior, it is important to take into account the dependency of the polymer blend morphology with the concentration and to consider the PS insolubility and PP solubility in n-pentane (16).
Recall that resins are soluble in n-pentane (by definition, by separation method, and from solubility tests).
Results showed that all-isopentane or an isopentane-rich blend with n-pentane has the maximum potential for cost savings while maintaining or enhancing performance (see chart).
Is n-pentane really an index of lipid peroxidation in humans and animals?
The blowing agents employed were 1,1,1,3,3-pentafluoropropane (245fa; Honeywell) 1,1,1,3,3-pentafluorobutane (365mfc; Solvay), 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane (134a; Ausimont), 1,1-dichloro-1-fluoroethane (141b; Elf Atochem), dimethoxymethane (methylal; Lambiotte), and n-pentane (Aldrich, technical grade), and water, as it leads to the formation of C[O.
In this procedure, about 40 times the volume of n-pentane was added to the Yates stocktank crude oil.
In North America, HFC-245fa and to a lesser extent HFC-134a are the two key contenders, while cyclopentane, n-pentane, isopentane, and blends of these are the most popular hydrocarbons.
The present work will be focused on the extrusion of polycarbonate foams with either carbon dioxide or n-pentane as the foaming agent, and special attention will be given to the key processing parameters required to yield high nucleation numbers.
