The effect of S-R addition was also investigated in elastomeric compounds based on EPDM, NBR/PVC blends and other polymers.
The addition of S-R to highly filled elastomeric compounds reduces the viscosity, but maintains or even improves the physical properties.
As Spokane citizens mobilized in support of Boone, keeping her story alive by flooding the S-R with letters and calls on her behalf, members of Unity in Action organized a public rally in a downtown park and enlisted Boone as a speaker.
"The S-R is like a guy whose wife caught him with somebody else," he says.
In doing so, they are likely to strengthen R's normative commitment and lower R's instrumental commitment to the S-R relationship.
With lower instrumental commitment by R to the S-R relationship;
With higher normative commitment by R to the S-R relationship;
As stated in H1a and H1b, the more S uses mediated power, the greater R's instrumental commitment to the S-R relationship ([[Delta].sub.21] = .260) and the less R's normative commitment to the S-R relationship ([[Delta].sub.11] = -.276).
We found no support for H2c which predicted that the use of nonmediated power by S would have its strongest negative influence on R's instrumental commitment to the S-R relationship when S is more powerful than R.
We found that the use of mediated power by S decreases R's normative commitment to the S-R relationship and increases its instrumental commitment to the S-R relationship while at the same time lowering R's assessment of S's performance.
This finding implies that, to maintain cognitive consistency, an R that is more normatively committed to the S-R relationship will attribute higher levels of performance to a weaker S.
