The glass transition temperature, Tg, of a material should be higher than any subsequent processing or use temperature. The Tg of CYCLOTENE* resins is determined by the % cure. If CYCLOTENE resin is cured at a relatively low temperature (ca. 200ºC) the Tg will be approximately 200ºC. If the temperature of the structure is raised to > 200ºC, the Tg of the CYCLOTENE resin will increase as the temperature is raised.
