A high rate of calcium silicate hydrate conversion observed in Phase II, coupled with lower heat of hydration or exotherm, yields a finished concrete of higher compressive strength and lower porosity.
The 1st scan data indicate an inflection T of ~38[degrees]C and a residual cure exotherm of~45 J/g.

This limits the resultant polymerisation exotherm and thus there may be relatively less temperature rise with PAC.
The polymerization heat, peak and maximum temperature of exotherm of B-z[(OH).sub.3] is the was lower than benzoxazine (B-o) monomer.
Its low exotherm also makes it suitable for potting, encapsulating, and casting, especially where wider cross section thicknesses are specified.
Exotherm Technical Testing Laboratory (Dubai) applied for a licence on 29 June 2010 to use radioactive sources for the purpose of industrial radiography, as mandated by the UAE's Federal Law by Decree No 6 of 2009, Regarding the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy, according to FANR's statement.
