Project description

The aim of this project with acronym ReSet (recyclable thermosets) is to create dynamic chemical platforms to be implemented in two major industrially applied matrices in thermosets, named cross-linked epoxy and polyester resins, which find applications in composites, adhesives and coatings, among others, thus creating a circular economy paradigm in order to “be able to do the non-recyclable recycle ”.
