Shape Memory Polymers

Technology Area: Materials & Chemical

Commercial Maturity: Prototype

Abstract: A class of shape memory polymers with the unique property that the shape recovery rate is adjustable. The polymers can be structurally tailored to fit many applications because the rate of strain relaxation is influenced by the number and type of covalent cross-links, non-covalent hydrogen bonds, and temperature.
