Proxima® Thermoset Resins
Materia’s thermoset resins are a groundbreaking advanced polymer technology based on dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) and a family of co-monomers, specially formulated to address high performance applications unmatched by many of today’s competing materials technologies. Our thermosets are designed to be alternatives for traditional resins, such as epoxy, vinyl ester, and polyester resins, adaptable to industry-standard manufacturing processes.
Proxima thermosets derive their unique characteristics through a polymerization reaction enabled by Materia’s proprietary Grubbs Catalyst® technology. Leveraging the versatility of our metathesis catalyst portfolio, we can design and develop a wide range of performance polymers with optimal processing and superior properties.
