Application


  • Polymer Physics behind the Gel-Spinning of UHMWPE Fibers: Though indirectly related, the study′s focus on material science can be paralleled with research on paraffin oil′s role in polymer processing and synthesis, especially in contexts where its lubricating properties are critical to the manufacturing processes (Wang et al., 2024).
