The cure kinetics of diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBA)/4,4'- methylene dianiline (MDA) system with synthesized phenyl glycidyl ether-dimethylurea (PGE-DMU) was studied by Kissinger and Ozawa equations with DSC analysis in the temperature range of $20~300^{\circ}C$ To investigate the reaction mechanism between epoxy group of PGE and urea group of DMU, FT-lR spectroscopy analysis was used. The epoxide group of PGE reacted with the urea group of DMU and formed a hydroxyl group which acted as a catalyst on the cure reaction of other epoxide and amine groups. The activation energy of DGEBA/MDA system without PGE-DMU was 46.5 kJ/mol and those of the system with 5 and 10 phr of PGE- DMU were 43.4 and 37.0 kJ/mol, respectively. Ozawa method also showed the same tendency.
