Dynamic Mechanical and Thermal Behavior of UV-Curable Coating of Glycidyl Methacrylate /Polyurethane-Acrylate Modified with MAP-POSS
UV-curable bi-component coating of glycidyl methacrylate (GMA)/polyurethane –acrylate (PUA) modified with the methylacryloylpropyl polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (MAP-POSS) were prepared. The dynamic mechanical properties and thermal behavior of nano-hybrid coating (GMA/PUA/MAP-POSS) were characterized with dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and the Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR). The results indicate the three components have very good compatibility and can co-cure in UV-radialization by a free radical polymerization. The addition of MAP-POSS enhanced the thermal properties, the mechanical loss peak temperature Tp is 85.5°C when the amount of MAP-POSS is 10wt%, which is increased by 12.6 °C than the pure system. When the content of MAP-POSS is 20wt%, thermal decomposition temperature in the initial stages was increased by 7 °C than that of the pure GMA/ PUA.
