Study on Environment-Friendly Epoxy Emulsion Modified by Two Silane Coupling Agents
The environment-friendly epoxy emulsion was synthesized by MAA, BA, St reacting as grafting monomer, while silane coupling agents played a role as functional monomer. Experimental results were characterized by Nano-particle size analyzer, EIS, UV-VIS spectrophotometer, FTIR and TGA. The results of Nano-particle size analyzer showed the average particle size lower than 300nm and emulsion had lowest water absorption when ω(KH560+KH550) was 7%. The results of EIS and UV-VIS spectrum showed the cured firm had the best corrosion resistance and weather resistance while n(KH560):n(KH550)=2:1. The results of FTIR showed the silane coupling agents had successfully grafted in the skeletal structure of epoxy molecules. The results of TGA showed the thermal stability were better than unmodified.
