Utilising the RADOX[R] cross-linked polymer jacket technology, the HUBER+SUHNER solution is proven to be resilient and robust to address the offshore market needs, including harsh environmental conditions such as high temperatures, oil, chemicals, and UV radiation.
Additional non-toxic chemical constituents can be used to tune the hydrophilic/hydrophobic properties of the cross-linked polymer tissue scaffolds.
9,901,529 B2; Alfa Parf Group S.P.A., Bologna, Italy, has been awarded a US patent covering ready-to-use gel compositions for coloring hair in the form of an aqueous solution comprising: at least one acrylates/methacrylamide copolymer; at least one cellulose derivative; at least one cross-linked polymer of acrylic acid or methacrylic acid or salts thereof; at least one oxidation dye and optionally at least one direct dye; at least one alkalizing agent; and hydrogen peroxide or a hydrogen peroxide adduct.
He is internationally recognized for his contributions to the fundamental understanding of photopolymerization systems and reaction engineering of cross-linked polymer systems.

As a comparison, commercial antibacterial cross-linked polymer and copper nanoparticles loaded on cotton fibers also were investigated under SEM and the visible disconnected coating on the fibers can be observed clearly (Figure 3(f)).
The plasma process created a dense and highly cross-linked polymer coating on the Cu substrates.
The concentrated solutions of the first agglomeration agent were put in a oven at 60[degrees]C to change the novolac resin structure to a cross-linked polymer and dry.
The initial weight loss over 120[degrees]C was attributed to the formation of C[O.sub.2] as a by-product and at 300[degrees]C to that of functional groups, such as NCO and hydroxyl, that were released from the cross-linked polymer. The second weight loss over 300[degrees]C was assigned to the breakaway of urethane groups, which are linkages of polymer chains.
This method has been used widely to form cross-linked polymer network.
