The reduction reaction is also an exothermic reaction and temperature may rise up to 70C.
The CSTR with an exothermic reaction was considered as the fourth order interval plant and its robust stabilization was based on combination of a technique for calculating/plotting the stability boundary, the sixteen plant theorem and an algebraic approach to PI controller design.
They have a less unpleasant taste than methacrylates, a reduced exothermic reaction, and they can be polished, allowing the clinician to create a more natural-looking temporary.
