Abstract: front page image
(EN)Certain embodiments are directed to methods to form modified hydrogel materials using reactive compounding. In some examples, the method includes mixing a hydrogel material with a plasticizer in a compounding apparatus. During mixing, a reactive chemical compound is added to the mixture that reacts with the hydrogel material to form a modified hydrogel material.
(FR)Dans certains modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne des procédés qui permettent de former des matériaux hydrogels modifiés par mélangeage réactif. Dans certains exemples, le procédé consiste à mélanger un matériau hydrogel avec un plastifiant dans un appareil mélangeur. Au cours du mélange, on ajoute au mélange un composé chimique réactif qui réagit avec le matériau hydrogel pour former un matériau hydrogel modifié.
