Protective Coating Based on Siloxane Polymer Nanopatterned by Alkoxytitanate
The paper considers the problems of creating new protective coatings based on organosilicon polymer – polymethylphenylsiloxane, modified with tetraisopropyltitanate. The mechanisms of siloxane polymer nanostructuring have been suggested. The coating surface nanostructure and the impact of material components content and nature on its properties have been studied. To research protective surface nanostructure, the method of atomic-force probe microscopy applying IntegraAura device has been used. Nanoparticles formations with 10-20 nm effective scale have been revealed. Adhesive properties of the protective coating have been studied. Glass and metal adhesion was determined applying the method of detachment from the steel discs substrate using adhesive meter PSO-MG4. The modification was stated not to cause any substantial loss of coating adhesive properties. Simultaneously modification process was accompanied with the increase of relative coating firmness.The developed compounds and corresponding coatings are aimed at protecting buildings and constructions against negative impact of natural and anthropogenic factors.
