Decomposition of crossed-linked polymers in an inert atmosphere occurs in such a way that they tend to conserve the structure of their matrix. Bond breaking inside the polymer matrix requires a large amount of energy. That is why decomposition of crossed-linked polymers preferentially takes place...
The thermal decomposition of pure and stabilised samples of chlorinated poly(vinyl chloride) (CPVC) was investigated using two thermal analysis techniques, thermogravimetric (TG) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) in atmospheres of nitrogen and air. The stabilised samples were a blend of...
