Title: Development of novel surface coatings based on acrylic copolymers
Author: Suma, K K; Dr. Rani, Joseph
Abstract: The present study describes the preparation of Vinyl acetate-Butyl acrylate copolymer lattices of varying compositions and solid contents by semicontinuous emulsion polymerization method. This copolymer lattices were used as binder to develop a new surface coating formulation. The properties of this surface coating were improved by using nano TiO2 colloidal sol as a pigment. Antimicrobial activity of surface coatings was improved by the addition of carboxymethyl chitosan as biocide. Uniformly dispersed tyre crumb was used to give a mat finish to the coating. The mechanical properties adhesive properties, thermal properties etc. of the coatings are presented in thesis.
