Water-borne ultraviolet (UV)-curable coatings based on microgels
Subsequently they prepared compact coatings via electrophoretic deposition (EPD) and ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The films including the microgels exhibited tensile strength and elongation at breakage values above 6.82 MPa and 72.09%, respectively.
Good thermal stability and rust resistance
The coatings showed good thermal stability, decreased water absorption, outstanding durability, and rust resistance after immersion in 5 wt% NaCl solution for 7 days at 40°C. This work provides a new strategy that can be readily applied to a variety of conductive substrates.
