5. In compression molding, the curing time does not depend on which of the following factors?
a) Material
b) Curing temperature
c) Geometry
d) Thickness
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: When there has to be molding done for thermosetting materials, mainly compression molding is preferred. While doing this, curing has to be done. The time needed for curing depends on the material used, geometry and thickness of the material.
