The curing behaviour of a novel composite matrix formulation based on bisphenol A epoxy resin, an an-hydride curing agent, and a tertiary amine accelerator is investigated. The curing kinetics are studied using both isothermal and dynamic differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) experiments. The cure kinetics of the thermoset resin are best described by a modified autocatalytic model, where good agreement between experimental and predicted model results is obtained during the initial stages of the cure reaction.
