High Performance Materials : NexTene™

NexTene™ are not conventional p-DCPD (polydicyclopentadiene) resins. Our cost-competitive, patent-protected ruthenium catalysts offer superior performance. Our NexTene™ PDCPD resins do not require injection under controlled atmosphere and are compatible with most reinforcements.

Based on a large library of catalysts and norbornene derivatives (DCPD being only one of them), Demeta has developed a broad range of formulations to match each customer’s requirements and needs. 


Body Panels and Large Complex Parts

NexTene™ resins have been synthesized in order to offer the best performance for large design body panels used in harsh conditions, such as agricultural activities, mining industries, road works, defense, etc.

  • Exceptional mechanical properties (elongation, compression, toughness)
  • Outstanding impact strength
  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • High and low temperature resistance
  • Very low capex injection system (no/low pressure, no controlled atmosphere, etc.)
  • Ultra-low viscosity
  • Allows complex and deep draw designat moderate tooling cost
  • Lightweight, low density

NexTene™ p-DCPD offers the best performance for low and mid-series production, making it well suited for production of either large equipment (tractors) or small series cars.

Oil & Gas 

NexTene™ PDCPD resins are specifically designed to meet the most stringent requirement of oil & gas applications, for offshore and onshore applications. Their chemical structures offer a unique set of characteristics: 

  • Exceptional mechanical properties (elongation and compression, toughness)
  • Extremely low water uptake, best-in-class resistance to hot and wet environment
  • High and low temperature resistance
  • Outstanding resistance to corrosion
  • Excellent machinability and drillability
  • Ultra-low viscosity, very low capex injection system
  • Curable in presence of fillers (fibers, hollow glass microspheres, ceramic, etc.)
  • Tunable gel time 

Those unique characteristics make our NexTene™ polydicyclopentadiene resins well suited for offshore applications, such as:

  • Thermal insulation
  • Land Pipe coating
  • Field Joint Coating
  • Downhole tools
  • Buoyancy modules
  • Composites
  • Protective equipment

Advanced Composites Materials

Because of its exceptional mechanical properties and ultra-low viscosity, NexTene™ is the material of choice for fiber-reinforced composite material, whether it be based on glass or carbon fibers. NexTene™ resins in composites offer additional performance to the composites expert:

  • Ultra-low viscosity for shorter infusion time
  • Lightweight, low density
  • Best in class impact strength
  • Excellent fatigue resistance
  • Ability to work in low and high temperature environment
  • Favourable electric and dielectric behaviour 
  • Tunable gel time (from seconds to hours)

NexTene™ resins can be processed through infusion, pultrusion, RTM, VARTM, etc.  Those unique characteristics make our NexTene™ resins well suited for composite materials used in:

  • Building & construction
  • Renewable energy
  • Offshore industry
  • Automotive & transport
  • Aerospace & Defense (ballistic protection)
