The superabsorbent polymer can absorb more than several times its own mass of moisture, and the absorbed moisture gradually dries.
Migrating fat also proved to induce a more pronounced swelling than the same amount of absorbed moisture. So, it appears that the swelling caused by fat or moisture migration is a result of a number of different mechanisms.
As you mention that the finish is worn rather than rusted or pitted (which could happen if the leather holster absorbed moisture), I would guess that the loss of blueing was caused by rubbing, from taking it in and out of the holster.
The company's systems prevent the product from coagulating, breaking down, corroding or from being susceptible to mould or bacterial growth as a result of absorbed moisture. They also prevent undesirable condensation of humid air on the product which would reduce shelf life of the product.
Lead-free soldering, with its higher temperature profiles, can exacerbate the condition, as parts that have absorbed moisture are prone to popcorning when ramp rates are too fast or peak temperatures too high.
The absorbed moisture is removed from the element at a temperature of 110[degrees]C or less to regenerate the element.
To drive off absorbed moisture, another specimen was baked at 125[degrees]C for 4 hours prior to underfill.
If not appropriately dried prior to molding, absorbed moisture can turn to steam and harm adhesion at the interface of the two materials.
The WOAs absorbed moisture, which reacted with the chloride to cause a field failure.
Since these resins are based on polyester, absorbed moisture in the polymer during processing can affect the final properties.
During typical solder reflow cycles, any absorbed moisture is quickly turned into superheated steam.
Among them are Premier D, a new range of low-moisture ultra-marines designed to eliminate processing difficulties associated with absorbed moisture in the pigment, such as foaming and strand breakage during the production of color concentrates.
