Preparation of Modified Thermosets
Pages 22

Thermoset precursors are frequently formulated by adding other components than monomers: these components, which are generically called modifiers, include small molecules, oils, low-or high-molar mass rubbers or thermoplastics, etc. Depending on the required applications and desired properties, the amount of modifier may vary in a broad range, from about 2 to 50 wt% of the total mixture with monomers.
