Dr. Eugene G. Rochow, Professor of Chemistry, Harvard University predicted in his state of the art 1964 Reinhold publication on Organometallic Chemistry that some day we would be able to solve the following problem that would lead to a host of new products.

“We want flexible, resilient, and elastic materials which will act the same at Red Heat (600-1000°C) as the common organic plastics and elastomers act at room temperature.

The demand is imposed by the requirements of pollution free and fuel efficient high performance truck and automotive engines, supersonic aircraft, rockets, and space vehicles where developments are held up by the lack of suitable materials.
