  • P-DCPD is a material based on the reaction of DiCycloPentaDiene monomer.
  • The material is an unfilled duroplastic material, which is characterized by very high impact resistance.
  • The material retains its high impact resistance even at extreme outside temperatures of - 40 to + 130 degrees Celsius.

HOW is P-DCPD processed?

  • Processing takes place by RIM low pressure injection (Reaction Injection Molding) similar to a casting process.
  • The process requirements are both low in pressure and temperatur.
  • The use of simple aluminium tools is therefore possible.

WHEN - "Processing window"?

  • Based on a cost/benefit analysis, the use of P-DCPD is optimal for small and medium series (from a few hundred to 10,000 parts per year).
  • The process offers a good compromise between tool/equipment investment and component price.

WHY - USP's?

  • Our unique selling proposition (USP) is not only related to the material properties but also in its processing.
  • The production process offers great design freedom "Designer Friendly" for large and complex components.
  • The cycle time is on average 5 to 10 minutes, also possible to make in one tool multiple cavities, of different sizes and shapes.
  • The material is characterised by very high impact resistance.
  • The production process has a high repeatability, therefore it is CPK-compatible (process capability index).
  • The finished product shows excellent performance both at low and high temperatures ( - 40 / + 130 degrees Celsius).

FOR WHAT - which applications?

  • The large-area components manufactured in the P-DCPD process are used successfully, especially in applications in the agricultural construction machinery, truck and bus sectors.
  • The main applications are exterior trim and body parts.
  • Due to the excellent material properties, new markets (e.g. wind power industry) and new applications (e.g. electric charging stations) show great interest in P-DCPD.
