Properties and evaluation techniques for porous materials

Part of the Materials Technology Series book series (MTEC, volume 4)


Density and porosity are important properties of porous materials. An increase in porosity leads to enhanced specific properties of porous materials, such as gas permeability and absorption. The porosity of porous materials ranges widely from 0.20 to 0.95, depending on production processes.
