Definition - What does Crosslinking mean?

Crosslinking is the process of enhancing covalent bonding in order to form a network of three-dimensional polymers between chemical molecular chains. Crosslinking is used to enhance certain material properties of a polymer such as malleability, strength and conditioning.

Corrosionpedia explains Crosslinking

Crosslinking is used to chemically attach two or more functional groups with desired properties. It is used to make a polymer more versatile and environmentally adaptable while sustaining its mechanical properties.
