The thermal degradation of fluorocarbon and fluorochlorocarbon polymers has been studied using dynamic thermogravimetry. The effects of silicate fillers, carbon black and the cross-linking reaction on the degradation parameters (temperatures, rates) and activation energies were found. Kinetic values were determined with the procedure of Freeman and Carroll via graphical and computer techniques.
