Monomers Coursing through the Veins

Lowering the Moisture Absorption of Natural Fibers by Cavity Polymerization

Monomers Coursing through the Veins

Natural fibers are light, economical and renewable. Which is why they are being increasingly considered for structural components. However, when moisture penetrates into the fibers, their mechanical properties suffer. Cavity polymerization can close the fiber cavities and prevent the natural fibers from absorbing as much water.

International Polymer Processing

International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.

The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
