Abstract: Abstract Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) was used to investigate the solid‐state cure process of poly(phenylene sulfide)(PPS) resin. Virgin PPS resin in an open sample pan was cured in DSC cell. Either air or oxygen was used as a curing atmosphere. Cure temperatures were in the range of 200 and 250 °C, which are below the melting point of PPS resin. Cure temperature as well as atmospheric condition influenced the cure behavior of PPS in the solid state. Both the rate and the amount of cure increased w…
