• What is PDCPD? Nov 22, 2023
    Polydicyclopentadiene (PDCPD for short) is a remarkable environmentally friendly new material in today's world. It is a polymer made from the purified dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) of petrochemical by-products C5 and C9 fractions, which is polymerized by metal-catalyzed olefinic decomposition reaction.   Its production process is reaction injection molding, the whole process is exothermic reaction, energy consumption is very small, no waste water, waste residue in the molding process, emissions are almost zero, and the products can be harmless regeneration and utilization, to achieve a complete closure of the entire industrial chain, is a model of "green chemistry".   PDCPD products not only have the flexible molding characteristics of thermoset materials, but also have similar performance characteristics with thermoplastic materials, which is described as "incredible" ductile materials. The material is light (specific gravity close to water), free design, not only has a high modulus of elasticity, but also has a very high impact resistance, high creep resistance, thermal stability, and outstanding corrosion resistance, weather resistance and paintability, is more suitable for the manufacture of construction machinery, agricultural machinery, trucks, automobile coverings, and sanitary ware, purification tanks, as represented by the integration of large-scale molding products. It is the ideal material to replace glass fiber reinforced plastic, some plastics, metal sheet metal parts, carbon fiber and alloy in the future, and is also the ideal choice for the lightweighting of equipment in new energy vehicles, wind power generation, unmanned aerial vehicles, tunnel templates, robots and many other emerging industries, with a wide range of applications, widely used in automobile manufacturing, construction templates, agricultural machinery, military, civil, medical, scientific research, national defense and other fields, with great potential and development potential. The market potential and development space is huge.
  • Application of New PDCPD Materials on Unmammed Aerial Vehicles Jan 13, 2024
    PDCPD (Polydicyclopentadiene) is a thermosetting polymer material, it has the potential for certain applications on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Here are a few advantages of PDCPD materials on UAVs: Structural Components: PDCPD has good mechanical properties, including high strength and stiffness, which make it suitable for manufacturing lightweight structural components for UAVs. These components could include frames, enclosures, or protective covers.  Payload Enclosures: UAVs often carry various payloads, such as cameras, sensors, or communication equipment. PDCPD can be used to manufacture protective enclosures for these payloads, providing impact resistance and environmental protection. Wing Fairings: PDCPD can be used to manufacture wing fairings, which are aerodynamically-shaped coverings that reduce drag and improve the overall performance of UAVs. The lightweight nature of PDCPD makes it an attractive option for such applications.  Drones for Industrial Applications: PDCPD's resistance to chemicals, UV radiation, and extreme temperatures makes it suitable for drones used in industrial applications. These drones may be subject to harsh conditions and require durable materials to ensure their longevity.  
  • Several Dialectics of PDCPD Material Application Jan 29, 2024
    Impact resistance and stiffness:         PDCPD belongs to the ductile structural material which is mainly elastic deformation. It has a low E-value (high in engineering plastics), and the use of additives to increase the E-value of the material increases the stiffness, and the impact performance will be greatly reduced. Structural design to improve the I value (moment of inertia) or and other materials composite method to increase the stiffness.   Flame retardant performance and environmental protection:        PDCPD material itself does not contain internationally banned substances; catalyst with catalytic polymerisation and high-temperature catalytic carbonation flame retardant dual function; high flame retardancy means that it can not be recycled and can only be landfilled; PDCPD has the best environmental protection recycling methods;   Dimensional accuracy and mould costs:         Products with high dimensional requirements are generally moulded in pairs; DCPD-RIM moulds are the most convenient moulds for pairs moulding; the cost of moulds for a single product is also the lowest according to the maximum usage of moulds (including hand-laid FRP) Price and use of cost-effective:          PDCPD has unparalleled advantages over other materials in terms of impact resistance, dynamic loads, and the presence of temperature-variable stresses, with a long service life and a very high price/performance ratio.
