Preparing UV-thermal dual-cured coatings with microcapsules

Wednesday, 2 July 2014

Triglycidyl isocyanurate (TGIC), a thermal curing agent, was encapsulated with poly(methyl methacrylate) for the application in acrylic resins.

Investigation of the wettability and thermal properties suggests that the microcapsules have better compatibility with acrylic resins and thermal stability as compared to pure TGIC.

Microcapsules exhibit excellent adhesion

Results of the release performance experiments indicate good storage stability at 25°C and a quick release of vast TGIC at 120°C for the microcapsules. The UV-thermal dual-cured coatings prepared with the microcapsules exhibit a fast, even and complete hardening at 130°C together with an excellent adhesion to the mild steel panels. The results presented in this study show an application potential of the microcapsules in UV and thermal dual-cured paints.

The study is published in: Journal of Applied Polymer Science.
