A bimodal material consists of two main fractions: a low molecular weight fraction affords a material with good processibility and high rigidity, while a high molecular weight fraction brings a good mechanical strength.
Sub-fractions characterised by different molecular weight ranges, demonstrated that mainly the high molecular weight fraction (> 30 kDa) is responsible for this effect.
It is considered that the increase in the low molecular weight fractions is due to the chain scission, and that the increase in the high molecular weight fractions is due to the crosslinking.
