crystallization

the fixing of a floating charge on assets. Where money borrowed by a company is secured by a floating charge over the company's assets and undertaking, the company may continue trading and dispose of any assets in the course of that business. If the company defaults on its obligations under the terms of the loan agreement, the charge will crystallize, that is, immediately attach to the assets owned by the company at that time. Crystallization is therefore the process by which a floating charge becomes fixed on to particular assets.

By examining the sequences of snapshots, the scientists hope to view a veritable motion picture of polymerization and crystallization processes in space.
Wu and Chen have also reported on extensive decrease of activation energy for poly([epsilon]-caprolactone) and CNT nanocomposites and suggested that presence of CNT into the polycaprolactone matrix induced more heterogeneous nucleation during crystallization processes leading to reduction in [DELTA]E [41].
The value of the crystallization activation energy [DELTA]E of -72.366 kJ/mol is about the same as that for isothermal crystallization, and this result indicates that the combined Avrami-Ozawa method is correct in describing the isothermal and nonisothermal crystallization processes for the BDIS (IA-12.5%) polyamide.
The increased rate of crystallization also yields reduced postextrusion shrinkage by reducing secondary crystallization processes that can cause further volume reduction and shrinkage in the solid state.
