Seminar provides introduction to polymeric binders

Tuesday, 18 September 2012

Unquestionably, the backbone of every coating system is the binder. Prof. Bernd Strehmel, Univeristy of Applied Science Krefeld, Germany provides a detailed overview on chemical principles and basic reactions occurring in polymer chemistry. Additionally this seminar familiarizes you with the various types of binder and their application areas.

Filmformers, which are frequently also referred to imprecisely as binders, are polymers or oligomers
(prepolymers) which are generally organic by nature and which polymerise as the coating cures. This seminar will familiarise you with the chemical principles and basic reactions that occur in polymer chemistry, as well as with the various types of binder and their application areas. You will learn everything you need to know about polymerisation reactions, the chemical composition of binders and the resulting  application areas for the different classes of binder. In addition, the seminar will also give an overview about characteristic properties of polymers needed to specify binders for QC checking in coating production and use.

Topics covered:
What is the difference between a monomer, an oligomer and a polymer?

  • What are the differences between linear, branched and crosslinked polymers?
  • What are polycondensation and polyaddition reactions?
  • What are radical polymerization and crosslinking?
  • How do I determine the molar mass (molecular weight) of a polymer?
  • How do I determine crosslinking density?
  • What is visco elasticity?
  • What are the various types of natural and synthetic binders?
  • What are acrylates used for?
  • What are the advantages/disadvantages of polyurethanes compared with epoxies?
  • Why are specific classes of binders used in specific applications
