Synthesis and characterization of waterborne silane coupling agent containing silicone-acrylic resin

Akın, Özlem
In this study, waterborne silicone-acrylic resin was produced by incorporating silane coupling agent onto the acrylic main chain by emulsion polymerization. After applying different emulsion polymerization processes, batch polymerization was selected to obtain the resultant resin. Thus finding the optimum conditions by investigating the parameters of monomer ratios, initiators, concentrations of initiators, temperature and time, the novel resin was synthesized. Water-dispersed silicone-acrylic resin was produced using butyl acrylate, butyl methacrylate, methyl methacrylate, 3-methacryloxypropyltrimethoxysilane and acrylic acid as a hydrophilic monomer. 2,2'-azobis[2-(2-imidazolin-2yl)propane]dihydrogen chloride as thermal initiator and t-butyl hydroperoxide / sodiummetabisulfite as redox couple initiator were selected as the best effective initiators for the production of silicone-acrylic resin. The reaction temperature of the preparation of silicone-acrylic resin was taken as 50?C maximum to prevent gelation and agglomeration. To understand the effect of silane coupling agent on the properties of the resin, a new resin was synthesized which did not contain any silane coupling agent and the properties of both resins were determined by FTIR spectroscopy, thermal analysis and mechanical tests. Their physical properties were also determined. The addition of 3-methacryloxypropyltrimethoxysilane to the main chain increased the hardness and the gloss values but slightly decreased the abrasion resistance value of the silicone-acrylic resin. All the samples showed superior flexibility. The produced polymer which contains silane coupling agent showed excellent adhesion properties on glass and metal plates.

Doğan, Mehmet; Bayramlı, Erdal; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2006)
Polymer modified bitumen is a binder obtained by the incorporation of various types of polymers in bitumen using mechanical mixing or chemical reactions. There are several factors affecting the properties of polymer modified bituminous composites such as; chemical composition of bitumen, kind of polymer and filler, compatibility of bitumen and polymer, amount of bitumen, polymer and filler, particle size of filler and process conditions. The main objective of this study is to determine the effects of polyme...

Doğan, Mehmet; Bayramlı, Erdal; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2011)
The main objective of this study was to produce flame retardant polyamide-6 (PA-6) and polypropylene (PP) composites and fibers containing boron compounds. The synergistic effect on flame retardancy of boron compounds (boron silicon containing oligomer (BSi), zinc borate (ZnB), boron phosphate (BPO4), metal oxide doped BPO4 and lanthanum borate (LaB)) with conventional flame retardants were investigated. The synergistic effect of nano-clay with commercial flame retardants was also investigated in order to r...

Keskin, Selda; Usanmaz, Ali; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2008)
This study was aimed to synthesize low molecular weight hydroxyl terminated polyurethane acrylate polymers that can be used in biomedical applications. Acrylate end capping via inter-esterification reaction was successfully achieved with the methacryloyl chloride addition to the hydroxyl ends of the polyurethane at low temperatures. Isocyanate terminated polyurethane acrylates were also synthesized for the sake of comparison. TDI, HDI and MDI were used as diisocyanates for urethane synthesis and they were e...
Synthesis and characterization of epoxy-acrylate vinylester resin and network structure
Zeytin Derin, Çiğdem; Usanmaz, Ali; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2008)
Vinylesters are termosets resins that have reactive double bond at the chain ends. They are produced by the reaction of various epoxies and acrylic acids by step growth polymerization. Vinylester chains are oligomers with molecular weight from 600 to 1200 g/mol. The resin viscosity is very high; therefore, diluent is used for easy application. The generally used diluent is styrene with, reactive double bonds to form a crosslink between the chains. The diluted resin viscosities are between 200 2000 cps. Per...
