The topic of biobased thermosets
also drew attention at the conference (which seems slightly ironic given that the earliest thermoset
materials, such as "synthetic horn"--crosslinked milk protein--and vulcanized rubber, were based on natural materials).
What hot runners are to thermoplastics, cold runners are to thermosets
like liquid silicone rubber (LSR).

This course will be taught at an introductory level, presenting practical information on the reasons for the success of TPEs in many applications; an understanding of their lack of success in other applications; the major hurdles TPEs have encountered and overcome; generic classes of thermoset
rubbers with which specific TPEs compete; the versatile means of processing TPEs; and the myriad of TPE applications.
LSR, PVC, thermoset
, elastomer, insert, PIM, micro-molding, and ceramic molding versions.
A rheological characterization of thermosets
under curing conditions like in the later processing is so far said to be impossible.
Manufacturers of thermoset
molding compound are recycling in secret.
Thermoplastic and thermoset
molds for injection molding, structural foam, vac-forming, and compression molds.
For many years, thermoset
processing was restricted to operator-fed and evacuated-compression-and-transfer systems.

ETPV thermoplastic vulcanizate is said to deliver the high performance of many thermoset
rubbers, along with substantial savings in processing costs compared with thermosets
, according to the company.
