Circular Thermosets by Design: Recycling the Unrecyclable

Project Goal

The objective of the ReSet project (recyclable thermosets) is to implement dynamic crosslinking chemistries in common epoxy- and polyester-based thermosets by making use of the principle of covalent adaptable networks (CANs). These innovative materials combine the strength of thermosets with the processability, malleability and recyclability of thermoplastics. ReSet aims for the uptake of such CANs in the areas of composites and adhesives.
