The curing reactions of an epoxy-anhydride and a rubber vulcanization system were followed by rheological means. Dynamic shear measurements were used to follow the reaction. The rheological quantities were related to the reaction kinetics of the systems. From these relations, overall activation energies, reaction orders and rate constants were interpreted from the data. These compare favorably with results reported in the literature. The cures of several diallyl phthalate compounds were also examined with dynamic shear measurements. The results correlated well with thermoset molding experience.
