The thermal stability and kinetic parameters of epoxy resin RTM6 using non-isothermal thermogravimetry/derivative thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) analysis a series of different ratios of TiO2-PC500 1%, 2%, 5% and 10% with epoxy resin. The kinetic parameters were evaluated by integral and approximation methods. Results obtained indicated that these parameters were dependent on different ration of TiO2. According to the thermogravimetric curves showed that the activation energy at high of higher conversion increases with increasing the percentage of TiO2.
