Preparation and Characterization of Core-Shell Type Versatate-Fluorocarbon Emulsion
Versatate-fluorocarbon emulsion with core-shell structure was synthesized by seeded emulsion polymerization using versatate, organic fluorine and acrylate as raw materials. The influences of amount of organic fluorine and versatate, core-shell ratio on the properties of emulsion were discussed. The emulsion was characterized with contact angle analyzer, particle size, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscope (SEM) and energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS). The results showed that the emulsion had good properties while w(organic fluorine)=6%, w(versatate)=8%, soft core-hard shell and w(core):w(shell)=3:2. The particle size is 110nm and with core-shell structure. The contact angle of emulsion film to water is 98.1º. The synergistic effect of versatate and fluorocarbon based on core-shell structure improve the over-all properties effectively.
