Why is thermosetting plastic stronger than thermoplastic?

Asked by amrikj1947 | 13th Aug, 2016, 09:15: AM

Expert Answer:

Thermosetting plastics contain polymers that cross-link together during the curing process to form an irreversible chemical bond.
The cross-linking process eliminates the risk of the product remelting when heat is applied. Thus making thermosetting plastics ideal for high-heat applications such as electronics and appliances.
