Cure Reaction Kinetics Characterization of Some Model Organic Coatings Systems by FT-IR and Thermal Mechanical Analysis
During the last several years the coatings industry has met the challenges of government regulations concerning volatile organic compound emissions and the increasing costs of petroleum based solvents by developing a variety of new coatings technologies. This has led to a need for improved methods of materials characterization. Techniques for assessing degree of cure and fractional conversion based upon fundamental reaction kinetics are included in these needs.
