Dicyclopentadiene, aka DCPD or C10H12, is an artificial chemical compound created by heating naptha or gas oils such as crude oil. It is used in paints, adhesives, inks, and especially thermoset resins.
DCPD resin is characterized by its low viscosity and its resistance to heat, impact, and corrosive chemicals when compared to thermoplastic resins used in standard injection molding. This allows the resulting product to be large, strong, and lightweight and makes it a popular choice for protective coverings such as shields and hoods as well as the outer bodies of cars, trucks and machinery.
