Muscles are all made of the same material, a type of elastic tissue (sort of like the material in a rubber band). Thousands, or even tens of thousands, of small fibers make up each muscle.

Please explain the use of definite article in "the material in a rubber band"? Is "material" a count or non count in that phrase?

Thanks. What parts of speech is "welcome" here and how do we determine that?

Our friends are visiting the UK from the states .

We haven't spoken yet but just had a text about their visit. Would the following be grammatically correct and natural?
You are welcome,anytime!
The Idea is they can visit us anytime as we were neighbours and very close friends in India

Why do we use indefinite article in the phrase "a good time"?

Thanks. How can we see that the time is countable in "a little free time"?
I always think "a" followed by any countable noun means there exist an instance of that noun.
