Thanks for a very educational piece of material. I learned quite a bit, and now have a much btter understanding of what the temperature ratings of epoxy materials are all about.

Robert--Very informational.  Excellent post.   Am I correct in saying the Tg temperature is somewhat like the "triple point" for other materials?   Would this be a decent analogy?  Also, I'm assuming all adhesives have a Tg temperature.  In looking at the adhesives I use and see used on a daily basis, we are very concerned that we apply adhesive to a part and adhere that part to a substrate before that adhesives "skins over".    The only way for us to insure compliance with our customers "pull test" requirements.
