The impact of crosslinking monomers concentration on the properties of unsaturated polyester resins

Artur Chabros, Barbara Gawdzik


The article illustrates the preparation of unsaturated polyester as well as the mechanical and thermal properties of his copolymers with crosslinking monomers (styrene and diethylene glycol dimethacrylate). The starting polyester was obtained from maleic anhydride, propylene glycol and isobutanol. The prepared series of unsaturated polyester resins were subjected to different studies concerning evaluation of their viscosity, mechanical and thermal properties and also dynamic mechanical behaviour (DMA).
