Structural Adhesives Based on Diallyl Phthalate

  • A. M. Usmani


This paper describes diallyl phthalate resins as a candidate replacement for the moisture sensitive epoxies used in formulating structural adhesives. Polymerized diallyl phthalate had most of the performance properties desired but was excessively brittle. Flexibilizing monomers were evaluated. Some promising copolymers were defined. Diallyl phthalate/epoxy interpenetrating polymer networks were also explored.
