A study of an epoxy-cycloaliphatic amine system has been realized using a thermogravimetric technique (TG). Isothermal and
non-isothermal (dynamic) methods were employed to determine the kinetic data of this system.
Five methods were used for determining the activation energies of this system in the dynamic heating experiments. In two of
them (Flynn-Wall-Ozawa, and Kissinger) it is not necessary to have a prior knowledge of the reaction mechanism of the degradation
behaviour for this system. In the other ones (Coats and Redfern, Horowitz and Metzger, and Van Krevelen et al.) it is necessary
to know this reaction mechanism, besides Criado et al. method was used for determining it.
The results have shown that good agreement between the activation energies obtained from all methods can be achieved if it
is assumed that the degradation behaviour of this system is of sigmoidal-rate type.
