The gelation of a powder coating and its matrix based on a saturated carboxyl functional polyester resin and triglycidyl isocyanurate of different diastereomer racemate composition was investigated by rotational viscometry. The iso-Tcure diagrams have been determined directly by isothermal viscometric measurements and the gelation curves for the TTT-diagram have been constructed. To the measured section of the gelation curves power functions could be fitted and with their help the reactivity of the investigated systems were compared. The ratio of the two diastereomer racemates of TGIC has a significant effect on the reactivity of the coating, as it was also supported by DSC measurements. β-TGIC is of highest reactivity, and by increasing its ratio in TGIC, reactivity increases, and adversely effects the performance of the powder coating. Commercial TGIC-s have similar reactivity, comparable to that of high α-TGIC. The reactivity of the matrix is higher than that of the powder.
