True or False? Thermosetting plastics CAN be reheated to soften, shape and mould.

False.
Thermosetting plastics CANNOT be reheated to soften, shape and mould.

21

Why can't thermosetting plastics be reshaped or recycled?

Their molecules are cross-linked in three dimensions and the bond between the molecules are very strong, so they can't be broken to be reshaped.
