Abstract : A review of research in the author's laboratory is presented. Interrelationships between reaction conditions and material properties of thermosetting and high Tg polymers are discussed from the point of view of generalized time-temperature-transformation (TTT) diagram. The TBA torsion pendulum is discussed as a technique for characterizing reactive coatings. Keywords: Cure, Vitrification, Glass transition, Solvent evaporation, Thermal degradation, Kinetics, Time-temperature-transformation cure diagrams, Torsional braid analysis, Density.
