Gel time and DSC curing results for OSB-derived resins were not very conclusive in terms of estimating the real impact of the modified or unmodified lignins on resin curing.
The Arrhenius plot of gel time for the SiAION suspensions (25 and 35 vol%) and premix solution are given in Fig.
Gel time of thermosets has been considered the time when the viscosity of the reacting system tends to infinity (25), (29), however it is not easy to determine the exact time of the abrupt viscosity rise.
Overall, however, the 40-nm fumed silica nanocomposites exhibit a similar response to the 12-nm fumed silica nanocomposites, but the gel times are slightly longer, and the viscosity at gel is slightly lower.

Similarly for epoxy-DAP systems the gel time decreased as the content of DAP increased, which can be due to the simultaneous occurrence of curing of epoxy and polymerization of DAP.
The model adopted to predict gel times at temperatures different from those used in the experiments is based on a linear interpolation of Eq.
Accordingly, the DCP conversion at the gel time increases with the decrease of the molecular weight.
The increase in the gel conversion and in the gel time has never been considered in the mechanism of shrinkage control, even though gelation is a critical step for molding.
Slow gel times provide excellent processing capability through both manual and robotic plural component spray equipment without delays in through-cure
About 30 seconds of rubbing will give the gel time to soak into your skin.
The named epoxy system has a 45 minutes gel time so the mixture was mechanically homogenized for 15 minutes before molding.
