When we had a customer that was looking for alternatives to the sheet metal hoods on boring machines used in the construction industry, Osborne offered pDCPD reaction injection molding (RIM) as a solution to the problems they were facing. The wet conditions on many construction boring jobs led to excessive rust on the steel hoods,… Read more »
What is pDCPD? pDCPD is the abbreviation for polydicyclopentadiene, a thermoset polymer plastic material. Thermosets like pDCPD are distinguished from thermoplastic materials, the other main group of plastics, because, unlike thermoplastics which revert back to liquid form under excessive heat, thermosets will remain in a post-cured form. pDCPD and other thermosets resist melting because of… Read more »
