Rapid method for evaluation of cure kinetics of thermoseting polymers
Keywords:thermosetting resins, curing reaction, DSC, kinetics parameters
In this study we report the results of a rapid method applied for evaluation of the data obtained by DSC measurements of cure reaction of thermosetting resins. The method is based on Borchardt and Daniels kinetic model and enables determination of basic parameters important for product and process development, but also for optimization of cure cycles for variety of thermosets.
