The new plant will utilize new capabilities to "dewater" and "recrystallize" material to prepare it for further processing.
In addition to mechanical strength being approximately 80% higher than the existing product, whereas the existing product has reduced shear strength due to early recrystallization in high-temperature shelf tests, TALF does not have reduced shear strength because it does not recrystallize due to the recrystallization temperature by 50 degrees Celsius and higher.
This occurs because the melted beta crystals begin to recrystallize into alpha crystals using the existing alpha crystals as seed nuclei, even while the sample continues to heat up in the DSC.
In this case, the original specimen probably was cooled rapidly (quenched) after melting, so that it either did not recrystallize or only did so partially.
They dissolve in a plastic melt and then recrystallize on cooling to form a network that can enhance mechanical properties and flame resistance.
The gem formation and chemical synthesis in "Press Release," the salts that dissolve and recrystallize in "A Downward Look" and "An Upward Look," the materials that undergo melting, cooling, and metamorphic or synthetic rearrangement in "A Look Askance," "Volcanic Holiday," "Alabaster," and "The Pyroxenes" all model an ongoing alternation between the achieved gem and the temporal dissolution out of which it arises and to which it returns.
But depending on one's location, its patterns melt and then recrystallize as Friedemann's heavier or lighter applications of ink wrest texture from the sleek Mylar.
The water dissolves the sugar on the surface before it diffuses back into the air, allowing the sugar to recrystallize on the surface of the product.
When undried molds are partially dehydrated in the autoclave, then allowed to rehydrate in air, gypsum crystals slowly recrystallize into granules about the size of sand grains and the mold acquires a porous structure of high permeability.
Actually it is impossible to recrystallize a single crystal deformed simply by easy glide, even if it is heated to temperatures as high as the melting point.
