Field of innovation: Cross-linking plastics

Cross-linking plastics are not formed through a thermal, but through a chemical process and can therefore be used for other applications.


The inner structures of cross-linking plastics are characterized by a thermally stable, non-reversible connections. Cross-linking plastics are for instance thermosets, resins or rubber. Through polymer reengineering, thermoplastics can also be increasingly cross-linked. As cross-linking works through a chemical rather than a thermal process, these plastics can be used for different types of applications.
