Thermoset

A polymer that, when heated ('thermo') does not become soft and deformable. This is usually because it is crosslinked, and the molecules compriising it cannot move past one another unless chemical bonds are actually broken - which leads to the decomposition of the polymer. Phenol-formaldehyde resin is an example.

thermoset

Type of plastic that remains rigid when set, and does not soften with heating. Thermosets have this property because the long-chain polymer molecules cross-link with each other to give a rigid structure. Examples include Bakelite, resins, melamine, and urea–formaldehyde resins
