Microhardness has been evaluated as a function of a zone selected in the cross section for samples made of EDT-69N, UP-2227N, and VST-1210 binders that have been cured at various temperatures and times. The microhardness of a sample is shown to vary from its surface toward the core in accordance with a parabolic law with a maximum in the core. Furthermore, the higher the temperature and the longer the time of curing, the greater the microhardness of a binder.
