The network build-up by the polyetherification of a diepoxide released by hydroxyl groups formed in the primary reaction with diamine was treated by combination of the kinetic and statistical branching theories. The critical polyetherification conversion at gel point was shown to depend on the initial amine/epoxy molar ratio. Application of a purely statistical approach led to relatively large deviations.
