- ‘Some researchers believe that prepolymers achieve better results.’
- ‘‘The ultimate resolution is correlated to the ability of the prepolymer to conform to the surface and the ability of the cross-linked polymer to retain the molded shape,’ Rogers said.’
- ‘Artificial clays containing a catalyst can initiate polymerization when the particles are mixed with a prepolymer matrix.’
