pre-gel regime
Stage of a network-forming polymerization or crosslinking process extending up to, but not beyond, the gel point.
The pre-@G02600@ regime may be expressed as the length of time or the chemical conversion required to reach the @GT07535@ from the start of a @P04740@ or @CT07136@ process.
