The Performance of Silicone Coatings Filled with Modification Carbon Nanotubes
Silicones coatings were widely used owing to their excellent low surface energy and good flexibility. The structure of the modified multiple wall nanotubes (MWNTs) was tested by IR. Influence of content and sort of MWNTs on microstructures, hydrophobicity of coatings and EIS was investigated using SEM, contact angle measurement (CAM) and electrochemical workstation. The results show that various groups had embedded carbon nanotubes, the coating modified by MWNTs has much lower surface energy than that of the coating wothout modification, the coating modified by different MWNTs have diverse surface energy, and the low-frequency impedance of the coatings was not decreased as the weight of MWNTs increased.
