A general‐purpose unsaturated polyester resin with 2:1 mol ratio of styrene to polyester unsaturation was modified with three vinyl monomers and two hydroxyl terminated polybutadienes. Tensile, flexural, and puncture impact properties were examined. The three acrylate monomers were tetraethylene glycol dimethylacrylate, 1,3 butylene glycol dimethacrylate, and trimethylpropane trimethylacrylate with weight percents of 2.5, 5, 15, and 30. Two hydroxyl terminated polybutadienes with slightly different c…
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.
