Abstract: Transesterification may be used to crosslink a copolymer such as ethylene vinyl acetate with poly(ethy1ene acrylate-co-propylene) in the presence of dibutyltin oxide as a catalyst. A rheological study of the mechanism of this exchange reaction has been made: The kinetics of the crosslinking reaction was determined by studying the time and temperature dependence of the dynamic storage modulus G'( t , TIu. Kinetic curves obtained for different reactive blends (EVA, PP/EVA, and PPf/EVA) allowed for the evaluatio…
