Time: 11 AM EDT (8 AM PDT / 5:00 PM CEST)
Duration: 1 hour
Presented by:


This webinar presents an overview of aromatic dianhydrides such as benzophenone tetracarboxylic dianhydride (BTDA) and the specialized thermal, mechanical and electrical properties they impart in advanced thermoset applications.

Dianhydride-based polyimides are used in cutting-edge aerospace composites and electronics applications (e.g. 5G phones, foldable electronic displays, etc.). Dianhydride-cured epoxies are used in demanding electrical and high-temperature applications such as adhesives, powder coatings and molding compounds.

Key Takeaways

  • Understand what makes dianhydrides such as BTDA a unique class of curing agents or building blocks for epoxies or polyimides
  • Gain knowledge of commercially important dianhydrides suited for high-end thermoset applications
  • Learn about new dianhydrides gaining importance for challenging polyimide applications such as high-temperature composites
  • Gain knowledge about new dianhydrides enabling transparent and colorless polyimides for high-end electronic displays
  • Learn how classic epoxy applications can take advantage of these unique curing agents leading to new value propositions for your end markets
