By controlling the process conditions, grafts can be produced with a wide range of physical and mechanical
characteristics; an example would be a very porous graft allowing rapid cellular ingrowth which could be suited to venous applications.
Initial results of methods to control the size and shape of an alloy's dispersed phase and the resulting effect on physical and mechanical
properties were presented by Basil D.
This approach is not without disadvantages: the physical and mechanical
properties of the base polymer are affected, and generally not for the better.
They derive many of their unique physical and mechanical
properties from the ionic bonds that are formed between the zinc cations and the carboxylate anions (figure 2).

The final mixture was then directly poured in the molds, designed in order to obtain the proper test specimens for physical and mechanical
Since the physical and mechanical
properties of a material limit the applications and environments in which it can be used, the versatility and reliability of silicones make them ideal candidates for numerous designs in demanding conditions.
