Although it is not required by the specifications, elastic recovery test was also conducted for unmodified bitumen (results are not shown in this paper due to the space limitation).
Recently, new elastomeric impression materials with very high elastic recovery and high tear strength have been introduced.
The total heat of fusion of the inner layer is less than the heat of fusion of either of the two exterior layers, and the multi-layer film has an elastic recovery of at least 40% when stretched to 100% elongation.
Excellent elastic recovery the film can expand up to 55-60% for easier handling, while elastic recovery of around 95% means the film shrinks back into the recesses of the container for a tight fit, normally without sagging.
The material features a high elastic recovery and a flat curve progression, yet it stretches only about 40%.
Xu and Li [14] found that the ratio of elastic recovery displacement of nanoindentation to the maximum penetration depth has a linear relationship to the ratio of residual stress to yield stress.
In the paper, the influence of the effective strain to elastic recovery of sheet metal specimens was analysed.
to concentrate the bending strains at the hinge location to promote better elastic recovery.
It has excellent elastic recovery, requires 25% less material than other plastic wraps, saves machine processing energy, and, unlike other plastic, once biodegradation is complete, all that remains is carbon dioxide, water and inert biomass, all of which are part of the normal bio-cycle.
