Effect of the addition of polyvinylpyrrolidone as a pore-former on microstructure and mechanical strength of porous alumina ceramics
Abstract The effect of the solvent on the properties of porous alumina ceramics was studied when polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) was used as an organic pore-former. In particular, porous alumina ceramicsExpand

The Effect of Low Profile Additives on Unsaturated Polyester Resins During Curing at Low/Medium Temperature: Shrinkage Behavior Study
The cure of unsaturated polyester resins (UPR) is accompanied with a high degree of polymerization shrinkage of about 7-10%, which can generally be reduced by adding thermoplastics as low profileExpand
