Such a plastic resin can be altered irreversibly through a process of curing into a durable and insoluble polymer which means that it is much used in moulding applications. Essentially, the resin is heated under high pressure and goes hard. Sometimes referred to as a thermoset, this type of heat-induced polymer setting is a mainstay of the plastics industry.…
