The thermal degradation of a polycyanurate thermosetting material in an inert environment was examined using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) in the vicinity of the glass transition temperature of the material. The effect of co-catalysts generally used to facilitate curing was also studied. Results of DSC, isothermal TGA and dynamic TGA studies allowed to determine the onset of thermal degradation and the process parameters.
