Dried coagulum contents were determined in terms of the theoretical solids total mass of each synthesis by filtering the latexes in an ASTM #200 sieve and then drying the sieve.
The end-user will see a smaller particle size, tighter particle size distribution, good freeze-thaw stability, excellent mechanical and chemical stability, lower coagulum, and lower foaming.
The closure of the alveolus with mucoderm[R] punch stabilizes the blood coagulum, protects the alveolus from contaminations, and supports the preservation of the soft tissue contour.
Incidentally latex product manufacturing factories too, generate high volumes of formulated latex waste, which is known as dipping tank coagulum (DTC).
Semenogelin, the main protein of semen coagulum, inhibits human sperm capacitation by interfering with the superoxide anion generated during this process.
Adverse Reactions In clinical trials, the most common side effects (occurring in 3% or more of patients treated with Varithena(TM)) were leg pain/discomfort, retained coagulum (pocket of blood in the treated vein), injection site hematoma (bruise) or pain, superficial thrombophlebitis (clot in a superficial vein) and extravasation (accidental administration of drug outside the vein).
The method includes combining a first fluid comprising elastomer latex with a second fluid comprising particulate filler; causing the elastomer latex to coagulate, thereby forming masterbatch crumb; bringing the masterbatch crumb to a water content of about 1 weight percent to about 20 weight percent, thereby forming a dewatered coagulum; removing water from the dewatered coagulum by subjecting the dewatered coagulum to mechanical energy, thereby causing the dewatered coagulum to heat as a result of friction, while allowing the dewatered coagulum to achieve a temperature of about 130[degrees]C to about 190[degrees]C, wherein water content is reduced to about 0.
Water is added slowly during water reduction to avoid a large regional solvent composition change which causes the formation of more coagulum and leads to visible cloudiness indicating large aggregates.
There was a dark coagulum surrounding the circumcision site and the urethral meatus was not visible (Figure 4).
In general, these granulomas had a core coagulum of necrotic debris surrounded by a zone of epithelioid macrophages and multinucleated giant cells admixed with fewer mononuclear cells and heterophils (Fig 5).
In such instances, surface defects will invariably occur if the coagulum particle size is significant, which it usually is.
