The curing and vitrification effect during the reaction of ATBN modified epoxy resin was studied through the dynamic differential scanning calorimetry method and a new reaction kinetic equation containing generalized WLF equation was developed to describe the reaction rate at both glassy and rubbery state. An autocatalytic mechanism was found to describe adequately the cure kinetics of the rubber modified epoxy resin and the overall order of reaction was assumed to be 2. The kinetic parameters were d…
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.
