soft-segment phase domain
@PT07286@ of microscopic or smaller size, usually in a @B00682@, graft, or @ST07295@, comprising essentially those segments of the polymer that have @G02640@ temperatures lower than the temperature of use.
Soft-segment phase domains are often larger than hard-segment phase domains and are often continuous.
