Abstract
In processing fibre-reinforced composites, the curing reaction can be signi ficantly retarded if the temperature and reaction time are not optimally se t. In such situations, complete curing is sometimes impossible under practi cally relevant conditions. It is difficult for processors to recognize or d etect incomplete curing. The equilibrium glass transition temperature plays an important role in complete curing in the production process.
