Anisotropy and molecular orientation are well‐known phenomena in the field of thermoplastics. In the case of rubber materials only a few studies have described anisotropy. Injection molding has been shown to give rise to higher anisotropy than compression molding. The anisotropy in the rubber material is assumed to be due to molecular orientation and is strengthened by carbon black. In order to understand the mechanism of anisotropy in rubber materials, an extensive study has been performed. In this …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
