A disease in potatoes, in which the leaves, at their first appearance, seem curled and shrunken.
The line of travel the stone takes after delivery. A stone will seldom travel along the sheet in a straight line, unless it travels along a run or a fall. Generally stones curl more with less weight and less with more weight.
Waviness, roll or curvature that can sometimes occur at the edge of the sheet due to differences in structure or coatings from one side to the other, or to absorption of moisture on an offset press.
The tendency of paper to bend or warp, either by itself or because of a coating or laminate.
Misshaping of a sheet due to moisture absorption or differences between sides of a two-sided sheet.
in the making of the paper - the distortion that occurs on unrestrained paper because of differences in the structure or coatings of the different sides - the concave side of the sheet is the curl side.
Is a deformation in part or all of a sheet that can cause it to roll into a cylinder shape.
Tendency of paper by itself to bend or partly wrap around the axis of one of its directions. Usually caused by changes in weather, faulty drying on the paper machine or in a multi-ply sheet with differing ply composition.
Tendency of a sheet of paper to coil or roll up at the edges. Usually caused by changes in weather or faulty drying on the paper machine. See also: Structural Curl, Wrap (or Roll) Curl, Wavy Edges, Shrunken (or Tight) Edges.
Waviness, roll or curvature sometimes at the edge of the sheet which can occur in the paper mill, in the printer's storeroom, on the printer's press, or in the bindery. Curl is usually associated with improper balance of moisture within the sheet, uneven drying coming off press. Curl can also be the result of fiber orientation within the sheet, internal stresses, improper refining of pulp, or mechanical stresses during manufacture or printing. Three types of curl can plague offset printers: 1) moisture curl, traceable to a change in humidity occurring always with the grain; 2) initial moisture curl, occurring the moment one side of the sheet of paper is moistened; and 3) delayed curl, occurring after moisture applied to one side of a sheet has evaporated or diffused through the body of paper.
In paper, distortion of the unrestrained sheet due to differences in structure or coatings from one side to the other. The curl side is the concave side of the sheet.
A waviness or rolling effect that sometimes occurs at the edge of a paper sheet. It is usually associated with the improper moisture balance within the sheet, or uneven drying when the orientation with the sheet, improper refining of pulp or mechanical stresses during manufacture or printing.
A bending or warping of material by itself. Roll tension and humidity are often causes.
Tendency of envelope to roll at edges. Usually caused by moisture.
The waviness of a sheet of paper generally seen along its edges. Curling is generally the result of physical stresses or changes in humidity, and may occur at the paper mill, in the pressroom, on press, or after binding. Paper tends to curl along, rather than across, the grain of the paper. Recycled and recycled content papers have less tendency to curl than virgin fiber papers because their fibers are shorter.
In packaging films, distortion frequently caused by the absorption, or loss, of moisture at an uneven rate from one side of a sheet; curl may also be caused by uneven physical stresses, as in the case of laminations or coated materials.
The tendency of a material, mono layer or laminate, to curl in a specific direction. A condition usually aggravated by conditions of humidity or tension.
The tendency of a sheet of paper to roll into the form of a cylinder. It is caused by the inequality in water content or stress levels between the two sides of the paper. Wet Curl is the result of application of water to the paper surface, as in lithographic printing. Atmospheric (Dry) Curl is the result of the exchange of water vapor between paper and air of higher or lower relative humidity. Mechanical Curl is the result of mechanical stresses on the paper, other than that of swelling or shrinkage, due to moisture.
Paper can curl because of differences in coatings on different sides of a sheet; or due to absorption of moisture. The concave side of a sheet is called the curl side.
The distortion, fluting, and puffing of a leaf resulting from the unequal development of its two sides. Damping-off - Decay of seeds in the soil or young seedlings before or after emergence.
(1.) The tendency of a self-adhesive film or material to bend under the influence of extreme moisture exchange. (2.) The tendency of a sheet or laminate to bend under the influence of extreme heat.
An undesirable condition caused by uneven rates of absorption or evaporation of moisture, uneven rates of contraction or expansion, or internal stresses in the material. Curl is most prevalent in laminated structures where the components have differing physical properties.
In paper, the distortion of a sheet due to differences in structure or coatings from one side to the other, or to absorption of moisture on an offset press.
a deformation in the paper which causes it to roll in the form of a cylinder; curl can be caused by variations in relative humidity or differences in structure or coating between the two sides of the paper.
The tendency of paper to bend rather than like flat-this happens more frequently with thinner papers.
Not lying flat and tending to form into cylindrical or wavy shapes. A term to describe the differences of either side of a sheet relative to coatings, absorbency etc.; the concave side is the curl side.
The tendency of material by itself or in a laminate to bend or partly wrap around the axis of its directions. Curl is often caused by humidity or improper tension.
A defect of a photographic film consisting of unflatness in a plane cutting across the width of the film. Curl may result from improper drying conditions, and the direction and amount of curl may vary with the humidity of the air to which the film is exposed.
The distortion of a sheet of paper due to differences in coating from one side to another or to absorption of moisture.
The curling that sometimes occurs along the edges of a sheet when the paper is exposed to extreme humidity changes or other physical stresses.
Tendency of paper by itself to bend or partly wrap around the axis of one of its directions. Usually caused by nonuniform distribution of strains and stresses throughout the sheet as a result of uneven internal moisture and conditioning.
Distortion of paper caused by a reaction to environmental conditions. Curl can cause feeding problems in a press or electronic printer. The curl side of a piece of paper is the concave side.
The Curl programming language (unrelated to c URL) is a reflective programming language designed to create interactive web content. It aims to replace HyperText Markup Language (HTML), Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and Java Script with one unified formalism, but is not widely used.
Curl, in football, is spin on the ball which will make it swerve when kicked. This is imparted largely through almost slicing across the ball, and utilisation of either the inside or outside foot depending on which direction the ball should bend towards. Curl is especially evident from free kicks, shots from outside the penalty area and crosses.
