Polymer thick films are screenable polymer pastes which vary from electrically non-conducting to electrically conducting. These materials typically contain significant amounts of high boiling solvents, and cure therefore involves removal of solvent in addition to crosslinking of the polymer matrix. In this study thermogravimetric analysis and dynamic mechanical analysis were utilized to characterize the residual solvent and glass transition behavior, respectively, with cure of the polymer thick films. Thickne…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
