Third, scale up from laboratory extruder to production unit can be heat transfer limited for highly exothermic reactions.
75, and 1:1 showed an exothermic reaction at 150[degrees]C, resins with eq-MRs of 1:2 and 1:3 exhibited exothermic peaks at 185[degrees]C, and resins with an eq-MR of 1:4 presented an exothermic peak at 180[degrees]C.
Because the heat of oxidation reaction is generated within the liquid steel, heat transfer efficiency from exothermic reactions should be nearly 100%.
Burnout temperature is the temperature at which combustion or exothermic reactions end.
PC methacrylates, however, give off a lower level of heat during the exothermic reaction than methyl methacrylates.

This is because the Ni-Ti alloy absorbed the latent heat from the exothermic reactions at the melting point (1310[degrees]C).
As surface area to volume ratios reduce on scale-up, exothermic reactions run in semi-batch mode, under isothermal conditions will require longer reagent addition rimes, which may affect quality.
