Crosslinkers / Curing Agents / Hardeners

Crosslinking is a process of associating polymers through a chemical bond. In most of the cases it is irreversible and can be either intra or inter-molecular. Crosslinking boosts the thermal stability and mechanical properties of the polymer. Substances/ mixture of substances that are added to a plastic composition to assist crosslinking and enhance the curing reaction are called crosslinking/curing/ polymerization additives. Some examples of crosslinking/curing/polymerization additives are organic peroxides, amines or amides, silanes, epoxies, free radical & UV cure monomers, isocyanates etc.
