The 7th International Nitrocellulose Symposium was held from May 31st - June 1st in Montreal (Canada). The purpose was to gather nitrocellulose related professionals in order to put together and share knowledge regarding the manufacture of this product.

Claude Guillaume, MANUCO’s Technical Manager and Project Leader, gave a presentation called “Morphology analysis measurement and correlation with fineness”. Fineness is one of the most important parameters in the characterization of nitrocellulose. MANUCO has been able to determined correlation between average size length and classical fineness. This is an innovative project that allows MANUCO to gain knowledge about this product, secure better homogeneity between different batches and adds value to our customers by helping them get better correlation between the final quality of propellants and physical properties of nitrocellulose.
