"We had a paper published about two years ago where we added carbon nanotubes that were functionalized into a polydicyclopentadiene matrix that showed a 900% increase in the tensile toughness by adding less than a few percent of modified carbon nanotubes," Kessler notes.
Epoxy, nylon, polydicyclopentadiene, crosslinked polyethylene and polyester are also used to a limited extent.
About 60% of the large exterior body parts for recreational vehicles currently are made of metal, with about 30% to 35% produced from thermosets, mostly polyester, polyurethane, and polydicyclopentadiene. Only about 5% now are made from thermoplastics, including polypropylene with molded-in light colors for weatherability; polyethylene; polycarbonate/polyethylene terephthalate; and painted or weatherable ABS.
