Fluorinated organozirconiums: Enhancement of overcoming oxygen inhibition in the UV-curing film

Abstract

Organozirconiums had been studied as the peroxyl radical scavenger in UV-curing coatings, which had varied performance in overcoming oxygen inhibition. Herein we modified the complex of zirconium with organic fluorides in order to increase its efficiency of peroxyl radical scavenging. 108 more words

Controlling the nanostructure of epoxy resins: Reaction selectivity and stoichiometry

Abstract

The internal topology of epoxy resins is, for the first time, shown not to be the determining factor for small molecule transport. Whilst epoxy resins comprise the matrix component of many high performance composites, coatings and adhesives, the nanostructure and transport properties of these materials are not well understood. 107 more words

High performance epoxy nanocomposite adhesive: Effect of nanofillers on adhesive strength, curing and degradation kinetics

Abstract

In the current study, the synergistic effect of a multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) and a nanoclay (C30B) on the mechanical, morphological and thermal behaviour of an epoxy based adhesive was investigated. 229 more words

Self-healing performance of an epoxy coating containing microencapsulated alkyd resin based on coconut oil

Abstract

The microcapsules (MCs) containing alkyd resin based on coconut oil with different concentrations: 5, 10, and 15% were incorporated into a commercial epoxy coating and the coating was then applied on steel panel substrate. 157 more words

Cardanol-based polymer latex by radical aqueous miniemulsion polymerization

Abstract

The facile one-pot, two-step synthesis of a new bio-sourced monomer derived from cardanol and its radical aqueous miniemulsion polymerization are presented in this work. As an abundant and renewable resource that does not compete with the food supply, cardanol is a compound of great interest for the replacement of petroleum-based materials due to its unique structure and properties. 118 more words
