OH] shows a curing exotherm with a peak located at about 206[degrees]C and with an onset temperature of 123[degrees]C.
Low exotherm while curing permits large encapsulations.
In addition, the lower heat of cure of the BZ system offers a lower exotherm potential.
As anticipated both monomers show a typical minimum temperature and curves of exotherm attributed to ring opening polymerization.
They meet ASTM F1216 requirements and reduce the likelihood of stress cracking and shrinkage with a lower exotherm in the enhanced version.
It can be seen that gradual weight loss occurred up to 363 [degrees]C which was only 2 wt%, corresponding to the exotherm peak at 338 [degrees]C in DTA.
During the first heating cycle, there is a large exotherm at high temperatures indicative of exothermic reactions possibly due to peroxide decomposition followed by formation of carbon--carbon and carbon--oxygen bonds.
This product has a two to one mix ratio by weight or volume, along with a low viscosity and exotherm, enabling it to be cast in larger sections up to 2-3" thick.
The resultant mixture polymerizes completely over a short period with a high exotherm.
Exotherm Technical Testing Laboratory (Dubai) applied for a licence on 29 June 2010 to use radioactive sources for the purpose of industrial radiography, as mandated by the UAE's Federal Law by Decree No 6 of 2009, Regarding the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy, according to FANR's statement.
The resin has high SPI peak exotherm and low cure time that allows faster production rates.
