Figure 3 shows the case where (a) a coalescing aid (in black) is highly water soluble and, therefore, quite ineffective due to decreased interaction with hydrophobic latex species, (b) a coalescing aid is very latex soluble but has very low water solubility, and (c) where the coalescing aid is surfactant miscible and stable at the boundaries of the latex particles.
Another feature of the finding suggests coalescing neutron stars.
In an attempt to offer an economical yet environmentally responsible alternative, we have developed a novel oil separating, coalescing, air refining system that actually monitors and reports itself to regulatory and enforcement agencies," said Gil Mains Jr, CEO and developer of the OSCAR System.
