In this study, simultaneous conversion, glass transition temperature, viscosity, and dielectric data were obtained on a commercial epoxy resin under isothermal and dynamic temperature conditions. These data were analyzed using models for kinetic, thermal, rheological, and dielectric behavior. The model parameters were evaluated from the experimental data using numerical optimization techniques. Epoxy resins with different degrees of B-staging were used to study the effects of B-staging on the resin viscosity and the Dual Arrhenius model parameters. The goal of this study was to develop a methodology for investigating the structure-property-processing relationships in complex commercial resins.
