Monomeric resins are frequently polymerized at a temperature that is far below the desired glass transition temperature for the final polymer network. This work quantitatively investigates the relationship between the glass transition temperature (Tg), the cure temperature (Tcure), the maximum achievable glass transition temperature for a particular monomer formulation (Tgmax), and the network heterogeneity as indicated by the half-width of the glass transition region (Tg1/2width) for both… CONTINUE READING
