Shape Memory Polymers with Adjustable Glass Transition Temperatures Higher Than 300 Centigrade
What is it about?
High temperature shape memory polymers (SMPs) are suitable candidates for structures demanding light weight and large recoverable strains in various fields that undergo high temperatures
Why is it important?
The high temperature shape memory PI may provide unique solution to numerous applications requiring high temperature shape memory effects, such as deployable space structures (e.g. solar arrays hinges and trusses to move mirrors), morphing structures (e.g. ailerons of aircrafts and temporary shelters), smart jet propulsion system, high temperature sensors and actuators, etc
