Introduction to Thermoset Materials (2023)
May 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT
Thermoset resins exhibit behavior that are very different when compared to the more common thermoplastic materials. These properties include high temperature and chemical resistance, and a wide realm of possibilities in terms of stiffness and strength. The processing of these materials is key to the realization of their properties, even more so than for thermoplastic materials.
This presentation will provide people not extensively familiar with plastics an understanding of the basics. If words such as polymer, thermoset, cure, and modulus are outside your normal vocabulary, this presentation is for you! At the conclusion of this presentation, you will understand:
- How thermosets are fundamentally different than thermoplastic resins.
- What the chemistries are behind popular thermosetting resins.
- By what means are thermoset resins processed.
- What role the state of cure plays in shaping the properties of thermosets.
