Synthesis and Characterization of Silicone-Modified Butyl Acrylate-Methyl Methacrylate Copolymer Latex
Silicone-modified butyl acrylate-methyl methacrylate copolymer latex was prepared via semi-continuous emulsion polymerization. Octamethyl cyclotetrasiloxane (D4) was used to link acrylate and potassium persulfate was used as initiator (KPS). Effect of D4 content on polymerization of acrylate and properties of latex film were discussed in details. The results showed that the properties of acrylate could be improved by the introduction of D4. Dynamic mechanical analysis showed that the freeze resistance of copolymer was effectively improved. In addition, effect of D4 content on adhesive strength of copolymer was also investigated.
