The probable explanation could be that with an increase in the filler loading, the elastic memory
of the compound decreased, as indicated by the decrease in the value of [[sigma].
Owing to its combination of mechanical properties such as microbial, water, abrasion, stain, and UV resistance, Elastollan is long-lasting and offers increased elastic memory
and hydrolytic stability, which presents significant benefits for users of wearable devices.

Composite line is based on epoxy and cyanate ester, and reinforced with carbon or other fibers at loadings to 40%, says Michael Tupper, vice president.
Increasing the branching content can also result in improved mill shrinkage, green strength and die swell, and can alter the milling and mixing behavior by increasing the elastic memory
of the elastomer.
Forprene TPV compounds consist of a polyolefin phase with a crosslinked ethylene-propylene-diene monomer (EPDM) rubber phase dispersed throughout, providing rubber-like properties--softness, elastic memory
, and flexibility--but with the advantage of melt-processability inherent to a thermoplastic, says M.
