Polydicyclopentadiene (pDCPD) is a highly engineered thermoset polymer with exceptional physical properties including plastic impact resistance, chemical and corrosion resistance, impact strength, stiffness, and heat resistance. Perfect for rough and demanding environments, pDCPD is used in thousands of applications where large, strong, and aesthetically pleasing parts are required.
The design freedom of pDCPD has virtually no limitation on part size or weight. It delivers the molding flexibility of a thermoset, but with characteristics similar to expensive engineered thermoplastics. Some of the material’s incredible physical properties include:
- High tensile strength
- High impact strength
- Moderate flexural properties
- High heat distortion temperature
- Excellent corrosion resistance
