Preparation of New Anti-Slip Flooring Coatings: Hydrophobic MMA Floor Coatings
For the first time, hydrophobic MMA floor coatings were prepared based on the fluorine-containing methacrylic ester copolymers and applied as a new kind of anti-slip flooring coatings. The composition of the synthesized copolymers was characterized by FT-IR and 1H-NMR. The prepared hydrophobic MMA floor coatings were analyzed for their coating properties. The hydrophobic properties of the coatings were characterized by static and dynamic contact angles and X-ray photo-electronic spectroscopy (XPS). Results show that the newly prepared floor coatings are easy to apply and have excellent mechanical and hydrophobic properties, which indicates that the hydrophobic MMA floor coatings have great potential applications in anti-slip flooring coatings.
