Synthesis and Properties of Poly-Acrylate Emulsion Modified by Organ Silicone
An acrylate emulsion was modified by vinyltriethoxy silane (VTES, trade name A-151) to synthesize the acrylosilane emulsion with high properties. The effect of the amount of A-151 on the properties pf the emulsion was investigated. It found that adding 6 % of A-151, the fraction extensibility of the emulsion film could be increased to 530 % and its water absorption was reduced to 4.2 % while adding 10 % of A-151. On the other side, the particle size and distribution of the emulsion were analyzed by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Malvern Particle Size Analyzer (PSA) respectively. The measuring results showed that the particle diameter of the modified emulsion could be between 100 and 700 nanometers, and the properties of the emulsion could be apparently improved by adding A-151 into the system of emulsion polymerization.
