Exploratory Research on Novel Ambient Temperature Curing Techniques for Adhesives, Sealants and Laminates: Final Report
The performance properties of thermosetting polymer systems which are cured with the application of heat and pressure generally surpass those obtained with ambient temperature cures for the same systems. This report describes a program of research and development comprising the exploration and study of selected novel ambient temperature curing techniques with the goal of obtaining performance characteristics equaling or surpassing those achieved with conventional heat/pressure type cures. The specific room temperature curing methods experimentally investigated included electron beam radiation; flash polymerization; interfacial polymerization and anaerobic cures. Some experiments were also carried out on room temperature curing epoxy polymer systems with high temperature service capabilities. (Author).
