A 4-arm star PVDF was synthesised as an appealing alternative to PVDF/PMMA blends since it provides crosslinked PVDF transparent coatings via photocrosslinking.

Good adhesion properties

According to the scientists, the process is very fast and versatile, the resulting coating displays very good adhesion properties to a metal surface, and the surface energy and the water contact angle are easily tunable.

The study is published in: Polymer Chemistry, Issue 20, 2017.
