… a pioneering technology for the curing of epoxy-based resin systems

The technology of frontal polymerization allows the on demand curing of storage-stable one-component monomer systems using a localized one-time pulse of either UV-radiation or heat. After the initiation, the released reaction heat triggers a reaction cascade resulting in a polymerization front moving (up to 10 cm/min) through the whole formulation ensuring complete hardening of the material. This recently developed and patented technique for curing of epoxy resins enables easy and energy-efficient curing and revolutionizes polymer manufacturing for many different fields of application.
