Abstract: Abstract An investigation was carried out into the effect ofa microwave cure on an epoxy prepolymer with a cycloaliphatic diamine mixture, as compared to a standard thermal cure. The microwave waveguide and process (propagation mode TE01) were adjusted to obtain large homogeneous samples. The extent of reaction, x, was measured during the microwave processing by size exclusion chromatography and differential scanning calorimetry. A good estimate of x was found using a modified DiBenedetto equation correlating…
