Abstract

Researchers responded to the comment on 'temperature divergence of the dynamics of a poly(vinyl acetate) (PVAc) glass: dielectric vs. mechanical behaviors'. The results were compared to retardation times reported by Wagner and Richert (W-R). The researchers digitized the W-R modulus data and applied time-temperature superposition (TTS) to them. They also represented the data on a double-logarithmic plot similar to what is commonly done in the TTS of viscoelastic data. The shift factors from the TTS of the W-R data were consistent with the obtained results, showing the Vogel-Fulcher-Tammann (VFT) to Arrhenius transition around the glass temperature. The temperature dependence of the shift factors differed from that of the relaxation times obtained from the Kohlrausch, Williams, and Watts (KWW) function.
