What is the primary difference between thermoset and thermoplastic polymers? Thermoplastics are uncrosslinked polymers that flow and melt with increasing temperature. Thermosets are highly cross-linked polymers that maintain their shape with heating and will not flow or melt. ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
