The influence of the presence of CaCO3 on the cure reaction of the epoxy network diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A with isophorone diamine has been studied. The total enthalpy of reaction, the glass transition temperature and the partial enthalpies at different isothermal temperatures have been determined using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) in dynamic and isothermal mode. A kinetic model accounting the influence of the diffusion of the reactive groups at high conversions was used. All the kinetic parameters have been compared with those of the system without filler (CaCO3). © 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci, 2009
