Abstract

The time-temperature-transformation (TTT) isothermal cure diagram, adapted to thermosetting polymers provides a useful intellectual framework for understanding the curing process. Previous work in a laboratory modeled the kinetics and calculate the TTT isothermal cure diagram of the stoichiometric ratio (1:!) of a n aromatic difunctional epoxy/aromatic tetrafunctional diamine system in both kinetically- and diffusion-controlled regime using the glass transition temperature (Tg) as the primary variable. In this work, the model is modified by incorporation of the etherification reaction to describe the cure of both an amine-rich mixture and an epoxy-rich mixture, again using Tg as the primary variable.
