This axis mainly reflects proportion of unfavourable structure (platy + massive), the granular structure and thickness of the platy structure associated with the effects of traffic intensity (location) and the previous crop.
The rating agency also notes the granular structure of Infinbank's funding sources, with top 20 deposits together accounting for 29% of total customer funding (which, in turn, makes up the bulk of the bank's liabilities), and Infinbank's ample liquidity cushion (48% of total assets at year-end 2012) which addresses the predominantly short-term nature of the bank's funding mix.
The insulating phase has a granular structure of superconducting islands (regions of localized Cooper pairs) distributed throughout a matrix of normal nonsuperconducting material [11-13].
The granular structure is more visible near the spots, but it is not recognizable in the faculae; these present themselves like luminous clusters without distinguishable separation, emitting continual light without the interruption of dots or of that black mesh.

Ultrafine grinding takes it one step further--the roasted coffee is very finely ground so that there is no granular structure to be felt when rubbing the ground coffee between the fingers--it is simply ultrafine.
The process advantageously alters the granular structure both at and near the surface, producing a condition far less prone to corrosion.
