"Thermosets" introduces users to the key characteristics and types of thermosets as well as common processing methods. A thermoset is a strong, rigid plastic with a cross-linked molecular structure that makes it difficult to recycle and re-use. Common thermosets include phenolics, epoxies, polyester, polyurethane, silicone, and elastomers. Many composites use thermosets as the binding matrix to create a thermally stable material. Thermosets may be molded or cast using a variety of shaping processes.
