Talking to a gathering of fish farmers at Alipur Shumali during a training session, he said that fish farmers must not let the quality of water in ponds compromised and put organic and inorganic material in ponds in accordance with the advice from experts.
At the same time, the foam itself hardens and protects the object from reignition, allowing the inorganic material to resist temperatures above 1,000 degrees C.
More particularly, the interfacial polymer for a rubber-silica network is a block copolymer containing a copolymer of conjugated diene and vinyl aromatic monomers, in which when used as a coupling agent in the mixing of synthetic rubber and silica (an inorganic material), the polymer enhances silica dispersibility within the rubber and improves compatibility and processability, resulting in considerable improvement in the dynamic property as well as the mechanical property of the rubber, and when used in a tire, etc., it enhances automobile braking performance and reduces rolling resistance.

It is interesting to note that here the amount of the inorganic material was relatively small.
During the initial stages of the process, "seeds" of the inorganic material are created that are bound to the polymer.
