Cationic UV-Cured Coatings of Epoxide-Containing Vegetable Oils
Polymers and High Performance Materials
Vernonia oil (VO), an epoxide containing vegetable oil, and epoxidized soybean oil (ESO) have been used to formulate cationic ultraviolet (UV) cured coatings. The compatibility of VO or ESO with other coating ingredients affects their incorporation levels into cationic W-curable coating formulations. Cationic-UV-cured VO and ESO coatings exhibited excellent adhesion, impact resistance, UV stability, gloss retention, and corrosion resistance properties. Pencil hardness and tensile strength of coating films decreased with increasing oil content. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science S.A. All rights reserved.
