Abstract  

The influence of temperature modulation and signal treatment (deconvolution procedure) of modulated temperature differential scanning calorimetry is discussed with respect to the investigation of cure kinetics of thermosetting systems. The use of a ‘dynamic’ heat capacity calibration is not important for this purpose due to normalization of the heat capacity signal in all cure experiments. The heat flow phase during isothermal and non-isothermal cure is always small, giving rise to negligible corrections on the heat capacity and reversing heat flow signals in-phase with the modulated heating rate. The evolution of the heat flow phase contains information on relaxation phenomena in the course of the chemical reactions.
