Photocurable binder for a transparent glass fiber composite was prepared with alicyclic methacrylate and fluorene-based diacrylate. ANOVA (analysis of variance) analysis was used to know main factors affecting the conversion of photocurable binder. It showed radiation intensity and photoinitiator (PI) concentration were main factors. The conversion of photocurable binder was simply increased with radiation intensity. Its increment however was abated with increasing PI concentration. We found that average conversion of the binder measured by FTIR-ATR was 87% when it was exposed to $5J/cm^2$ of UV dose with 5 wt% of PI. Oxime ester type PI was very effective to get a high degree of conversion, but it caused a yellowing problem. Owing to post-baking process, UV cured film showed an improved thermal stability by increase of conversion and removal of volatile organic compounds. TG% at $260^{\circ}C$ of film cured with 5 wt% of PI (TPO+MBF) and $5J/cm^2$ of UV radiation increased from 95.4 to 99.0% by post-baking at $230^{\circ}C$ for 5 min.
