Polymer Science Series D Aims and scope Submit manuscript


The rheological properties of an epoxy-furan composite incorporating the new low-viscosity furan resin LE828 were studied in the temperature range between 25 and 70°C. Furfural-acetone resin is shown to be an effective and active diluent for epoxy-diane (epoxybisphenol A) resin.
