Summary Polymers have a great interest for the study and design of new materials. Among these materials are epoxy resins, that have good properties, such as low shrinkage during cure, good adhesion, high water and chemical resistance, etc. They have also fast and easy cure in a broad range of temperatures. TTT diagrams are very helpful to design new epoxy materials as they allow the search for very important final properties, such as thermal stability, conversion or glass transition temperature of a material cured through a selected curing cycle. In this work the dependence of the thermal stability on the selected curing cycle for a DGEBA/1,2 DCH system was studied.
