Abstract

Glass transition measured by DMTA from the change in slope in storage modulus was 55 °C, which was 10.5 °C lower than the value measured by tan δ peak. Initial glass transition measured by DSC, increased exponentially and reached a constant value of 55 °C at or higher heating rate of 30 °C/min. Transition temperature, measured by MDSC, remained constant up to heating rate 15 °C/min and then decreased. The glass transition values determined from reversible heat flow was 60 °C. The break in diffusivity and density (i.e. volume) was observed at 50 °C below the glass transition temperature measured by thermal and mechanical methods.
