Sam rhymes with a cool charisma and an elastic flow that lands somewhere between Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa, while his producer Icez' tracks hiccup vocal samples and pulsate with even greater urgency than the first wave of jerkin productions.
Obviously, only a 3D structure with a certain better relation between normal stress and shear stress in the region of small shear rates, or better elastic flow behavior, can lead to a system with two yield stress regions.
Standard polylactides are linear polymers with relatively low elastic melt strength, and this lack of elastic flow in the molten state inhibits the ability of a polymer to expand into a low-density foam.
