Abstract : Three divinyl-vinyl systems were investigated over the entire composition range, and shear modulus-temperature measurements were made on all of the samples. The systems were: tetraethylene glycol dimethacrylate (TEGDM) with styrene, methyl methacrylate and octyl acrylate respectively. The equation for the shear modulus from the theory of rubber elasticity was used for calculation of the front factors in the plateau regions of the modulus temperature curves. The results were compared with those obtained previously in a TEGDM-ethyl acrylate system. (Author-PL).
