This illustrates the usefulness of the MFR test in providing a relative measurement of the average MW of a polymer.
The 25 functions supported by the Addonics MFR include: read/write and backup to DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, CD-R or CD-RW with 11 different types of flash memory media -- for CF-1, CF-II, Smart Media, Secure Digital card, Multi-Media card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick DUO, Memory Stick Pro DUO, Micro Dive and xD Card.
This is where one of the common criticisms of the MFR test comes in.
5-hour rechargeable battery pack, and carrying case the Addonics MFR can be used anywhere.
For example, adding ingredients to a compound such as glass fibers, impact modifiers, and certain additives can alter the MFR of a material without changing the average molecular weight of the polymer one bit.
Unfortunately, interpreting MFR results for filled materials is not as simple because during processing the fillers can also be affected in a manner that contributes to the increase in MFR of the compound.
By contrast, Tiara Networks next-generation MFR solution enables service providers to rapidly deploy cost-effective high-speed Frame Relay services to their customers.
It has 6 MFR, 58 Shore D hardless, flex modulus of 261,000 psi, and notched Izod impact strength of 34 kJ/[m.
Tiara is also adding MFR and Frame Relay support to the existing Series 6000 IP aggregation product line.
Lexan HPX8R has 35 MFR; Lexan HPX4 has 10 MFR but higher low-temperature ductility, much improved hydrolytic stability for repeated autoclave sterilization, and higher impact strength.
With the addition of MFR to the industry's standards for high-speed service delivery, a service provider's options for offering new and faster services to its customers are greater than ever before," stated Rebecca Horn, Vice President of Marketing for Larscom.
