But as viscosity increases during cure, the dye molecules' freedom of molecular rotation is inhibited.
Their interaction in quiescent samples has been well studied (12-14), the major finding being that disclinations of opposite topological charge (i.e., opposite molecular rotation) attract and annihilate one another just as their electrostatic counterparts.
In addition to thermal stress, mechanical stress occurs due to the hindrance of molecular rotations and due to shear and tensile stresses of screw plasticizing and melt injection.
