It became clear that there were many potential users of this method in industry, particularly small businesses, and academia, where more sophisticated texture measurement equipment, such as 4-circle diffractometers and area detectors, is not readily available.
Syndiotactic G2, for instance, has only 39% crystallinity, versus 45% crystallinity for isotactic G4 and 61% for standard PP, according to WAXS-spectra tests performed on powder diffractometers. DSC-crystallinity tests show slightly different numbers for the same resin samples.
