Summary

Cured resins characterized by differential scanning calorimetry and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy have shown complete reaction with 8-14% residual vinyl groups. Evolved gas composition, weight loss, and heat change during pyrolysis are determined from simultaneous TGA/DTA/MS analyses. Three pyrolysis regions are identified with peak temperatures at about 440°C, 590°C, and 730°C. Major components of the evolved gases are methane, C2 hydrocarbons, and hydrogen with minor amount of C3 and C4 hydrocarbons.
