Water-based acrylic coatings reinforced by PISA-derived fibers
Polymerisation-induced self-assembly (PISA) is an efficient approach to synthesise self-assembled core-shell nanofibers in water, made of amphiphilic block copolymers.
A team of French and Chinese researchers have demonstrated for the first time that such anisotropic and high Tg nanofibers can be used as reinforcing fillers for water-based acrylic materials.
This strategy opens the way for strong all-organic aqueous coatings.
The study is published in: Polymer Chemistry, Issue 34, 2017.
The European Coatings Seminar Dispersion: theory and practice in coatings production on October 10 will teach attendees everything there is to know to start working in this area of the coatings industry.
The book describes the latest knowledge about acrylic resins in solvent-borne and water-borne systems, and for radiation curing in an understandable and descriptive manner. It discusses the different chemical and physical aspects of the production methods and the related application properties. Furthermore the reader receives an overview of the production, properties and application of acrylic resins and their distinctive features.
