Filled thermosetting resins used for adhesives, sealants, and coatings are two‐phase systems whose rheological behavior is determined by the properties of both phases as well as by the interactions between the matrix and the filler. The chemorheological changes during the crosslinking of an epoxy system (EPON 828 with curing agent Y from Shell Chemical Co.) were investigated. The influence of an untreated silica filler on the reaction kinetics and the Rheological behavior of the system were also anal…
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.
