It was also turned out that non-straight form has less effect on resins with higher elastic modules.
Considering that POM lean blends have smaller dispersed particle sizes, it is evident that apart from incompatibility, there are other reasons for lower values of elastic modules of the blends, one of such possible reasons being changes in the crystallinity of the blends.
The product features unique carbon-steel joints that stabilise the connection "without play," and longitudinal elastic modules higher than 300 gigapascals (GPa), which is 1.
