The effect of benzyl alcohol and phenol on the cure of epoxy resins is reported. The epoxy resin, a blend of the diglycidyl ethers of bisphenol A and bisphenol F, was cured with 4,4'-methylenebis(cyclohexylamine) diamine. Measurements of the cure and vitrification times were obtained using a vibrating plate curometer. Mechanical properties were assessed using dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA). Time temperature transformation (TTT) diagrams were constructed. Benzyl alcohol lowers the viscosity, aids cure and plasticizes the final product. Phenol and triethylenetetramine [TETA] significantly enhance the rate of cure and have a catalytic effect.
