Synthesis and research of photocurable protective coatings on the basis of olygoesteracrylates

O. A. Karsakova, M. V. Kuzmin


In this work, photocurable protective coatings based on methacrylic acid esters have been developed and their physical and mechanical properties have been investigated. The photocurable compositions were obtained by mixing at different ratios the following methacrylic acid esters: polyethylene glycol dimethacrylate 400 and triethylene glycol dimethacrylate ether, polyethylene glycol dimethacrylate 400 and oligourethane dimethacrylate, polyethylene glycol dimethacrylate 400 and pentaerythritol tetraacrylate. For the obtained compositions, the viscosity was studied using a Brookfield rotary viscometer. To initiate polymerization, a mixture of initiators was used: benzoyl peroxide and benzoin. Curing of the obtained compositions was carried out under the influence of UV rays for 2-5 minutes. For photo-cured compositions, their physical and mechanical properties have been studied. It was found that the composition based on polyethylene glycol dimethacrylate modified with triethylene glycol dimethacrylate at a ratio of 70:30 has the highest strength.
