Fluorinated Acrylic Films: Effect of F Content on Aging and Corrosion Testing
Four fluorinated polyacrylate dispersions, which based on chlorotrifluoroethylene (CTFE), acrylic acid (AA), vinyl acetate (VAc) and ethenyltriethoxysilane (ETOS) as monomers, are synthesized by free radical polymerization. The influence of xenon lamp and UV-light aging on the film with the fluorine content is discussed. The effect of salt-spray corrosion before and after UV-light aging with F wt% of film is also studied. The results show that low surface energy of high fluorine content film can retard salt-spray corrosion compared with no or low fluorine content films.
