During vapor absorption tests, a vapor molecule will condense inside a capillary tube (pore throat) once the meniscus of the condensate is less than or equal to the diameter of the pore throat [71].
In fact, tensile tests, water absorption tests and hardness tests showed higher performances for 30W10F than 10F or 30W samples.
