Polymer Matrix Selection for Very High Temperature Composites

Watch Online Tutorial

Many formulators are used to work with an epoxy matrix. And when developing composites for very high temperature applications, they prefer to try twisting the epoxy matrix to adapt it to very high temperature rather than starting from scratch with a new material they are unfamiliar with. But epoxy matrix is not suitable for very high temperature applications and you will fail at achieving the desired performance!


Watch this tutorial and learn the practical criteria you should consider to select the best matrix polymer for your high temperature composites.
