Information Center

Polydicyclopentadiene (PDCPD) combination formulation compound is referred to as A and B materials. It is a highly reactive, high-performance liquid resin, consisting of A and B bi-components.
What is Reaction Injection Molding (RIM)?
Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) is a low molding pressure process for production of complex plastic parts directly from low viscosity monomers or oligomers. Two or more reactive streams A and B are combined by impingement mixing in a self -cleaning mix head (10 to 20 MPa) prior to enter the mold. Mold pressures are very low (less than 1 MPa). With this process parts can typically be demolded in less than one minute.
