    Modals

    Hello!
    Could you please help me to select a modal verb for the sentence below?
    Each melt, while representing the same structural material, can/could/may/might be actually different from other melts by its physical mechanical properties.
    Thanx

    All melts are actually different in their mechanical properties even though they have the same material structure.

    I don't think it matters which modal verb you use. It's reasonable to assume that all melts will/would be different if you could measure them finely enough. Maybe use "will".
