Simultaneous two-component interpenetrating polymer networks (IPNs) of polyurethane (PU)-poly(methyl acrylate) (PMA) were prepared, as well as the corresponding pseudo-IPNs. A comparison was made between the full IPNs, pseudo-IPNs, and the respective homopolymers. Their ultimate mechanical properties were obtained and the dynamic glass transition temperatures (Tg's) were found using a thermomechanical analyzer. At all compositions, a single Tg(except 50-50 wt %) was found.
