Crosslinkable acrylic-melamine latex

Friday, 6 April 2018

A recently published paper deals with the incorporation of a melamine-formaldehyde resin into acrylic nanoparticles by miniemulsion polymerization.

Nowadays, crosslinkable polymers are highly demanded in applications where improved thermal, mechanical, and chemical strengths are required. Among crosslinkable polymers, those with film forming capability (e.g., coatings and adhesives) are of particular interest. A new work investigated the miniemulsion polymerization of various acrylic monomer formulations in the presence of an iso-butylated melamine-formaldehyde resin with the aim of obtaining waterborne nanocomposites with controlled crosslinkable capabilities.

Variable post-crosslinking capabilities

Variation of the acrylic monomer formulation showed a significant influence on the degree of crosslinking, and consequently, on the final properties of the acrylic/melamine nanocomposite particles, their coalesced films at room temperature and those cured at high temperature. Thereafter, these results offer the opportunity of obtaining waterborne acrylic/melamine nanocomposites with different post-crosslinking capabilities.

The study is published in: Progress in Organic Coatings Volume 118, May 2018, Pages 82-90.
