(4) Functional monomer modified styrene acrylic emulsion(Styrene Acrylic Emulsion Supplier)

Research on further improving and perfecting the performance of styrene-acrylic emulsion is becoming active, and the research on functional monomers of the system is one of the hot spots.

The comonomer composition can generally be divided into three parts. The first is the soft monomer (acrylate), which has a low glass transition temperature and gives the polymer adhesive properties; the second is the hard monomer (styrene), which has a high glass transition temperature.

It imparts cohesion to the polymer; the third is the functional monomer, which can be copolymerized with soft and hard monomers to obtain a copolymer with functional groups, which can significantly improve the overall performance of the emulsion.


(5) Cationic styrene acrylic emulsion(Styrene Acrylic Emulsion Supplier)

In view of the shortcomings of high emulsifier content, wide particle size distribution, and poor emulsion stability in the current preparation method of cationic styrene-acrylic microemulsion, a preparation method of cationic styrene-acrylic microemulsion is provided.

Specifically, cationic Gemini surfactant is first used as an emulsifier to prepare a styrene-acrylic pre-emulsion, then a water-soluble azo compound is used as an initiator to prepare a seed latex, and then the styrene-acrylic pre-emulsion and water-soluble azo compound are continuously added dropwise to the seed latex. The initiator is used to prepare cationic styrene-acrylic microemulsion.

The advantages of this method are that the nanoscale cationic styrene-acrylic microemulsion produced has low emulsifier content, narrow particle size distribution, low gel rate and good emulsion stability.

Cationic styrene-acrylic emulsion refers to a polymer or copolymer made by using cationic surfactants or positively charged acrylic monomers. Its basic feature is that the polymer surface or the polymer itself is positively charged. Since the cationic styrene-acrylic emulsion has a positive charge, it is not only beneficial to the neutralization, adsorption and adhesion of the negatively charged surface, but also has sterilization, dust-proof and anti-static effects.


Styrene Acrylic Emulsion Supplier: Practical problems

In recent years, with the development of my country’s construction industry, water-based architectural coatings have developed rapidly. Styrene-acrylate copolymer emulsion Styrene-acrylic emulsion is widely used as a film-forming substance for water-based architectural coatings due to its good material properties, excellent water resistance, weather resistance and durability, and high bonding strength.

In the microemulsion polymerization system studied, the content of monomers is very low (less than 10%), and the concentration of emulsifier is very high (more than 10%), which can basically meet the requirements of using microemulsion as the reaction medium to prepare products with special physics. Performance material requirements.

Because after demulsification and washing, the influence of the emulsifier can be minimized. When it is used directly as a coating, the presence of a large amount of emulsifiers greatly reduces the water resistance, compactness, scrub resistance and adhesion of the coating film, making it difficult to meet the requirements; at the same time, the fullness of the coating film prepared from an emulsion with too low solid content Low, so microemulsion coatings are rarely reported at home and abroad.

In order to develop the application market of microemulsions in coatings, it is necessary to prepare styrene-acrylic microemulsions with low emulsifier content and high monomer content.

To this end, the following issues must be addressed:

1) Selection of functional monomers
There are three types of comonomers to choose from for emulsion polymers: hard monomers (which give the coating film hardness, wear resistance and structural strength), soft monomers (which give the coating film flexibility and durability) and functional monomers (which can improve adhesion). Strength, wettability, emulsion stability, cross-linking).

Traditional styrene-acrylic emulsion is mainly copolymerized by styrene, butyl acrylate and a small amount of acrylic acid. The styrene-acrylic emulsion formed by polymerizing only three monomers has many problems, such as poor film-forming properties, high minimum film-forming temperature, low coating strength, and poor water resistance, erosion resistance, and light resistance of the coating.
In order to give the styrene-acrylic emulsion more excellent properties, a small amount of functional monomers can be introduced through blending or copolymerization to modify the styrene-acrylic emulsion.

Functional acrylate monomers are divided into monomers and oligomers. Monomers include monofunctional monomers, difunctional monomers and multifunctional monomers, such as (meth)acrylic acid polyol esters, dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate, glycidyl acrylate, etc.

Oligomers refer to oligomers formed by chemical reactions between two or more monomers containing different functional groups, such as acrylic urethane, acrylic epoxy ester, acrylic polyester, etc. Functional monomers, as comonomers, are introduced into polymer emulsions and can impart various properties to polymer emulsions. Functional monomers are mainly acrylates containing functional groups such as carboxyl, hydroxyl, epoxy and amino groups.

The presence of hydroxyl groups can improve the overall performance of the cross-linked emulsion coating. Therefore, in the formulation, hydroxyl-containing monomers and carboxyl-containing monomers are often combined to achieve the best coating performance.

Functional monomers with amine groups, NCH2OH and epoxy groups can be copolymerized with acrylic monomers, and their functional groups can remain stable in free radical emulsion polymerization.

N-methylol acrylamide undergoes a cross-linking reaction under heating and acid-catalyzed conditions. It can be used in the copolymerization of propionate to prepare cross-linked polymer emulsions; application of diaminoethyl methacrylate (DMAEMA) and acrylate emulsions Copolymerization can produce cationic acrylic polymer emulsion;
The copolymerization of glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) and acrylate emulsion can produce a reactive polymer emulsion. The macromolecular chains in the latex particles contain epoxy groups that can be cross-linked with polymers containing carboxyl groups under amine-catalyzed heating conditions. reaction.

2) Use different anionic surfactants and nonionic surfactants to find or synthesize reactive emulsifiers to synthesize styrene-acrylic microemulsions with small emulsifier content

Comparing microemulsion polymerization with conventional emulsion polymerization, in the microemulsion polymerization system studied, the monomer content is very low (less than 10%), and the concentration of emulsifier is very high (more than 10%).

These obvious shortcomings limit the industrial application of microemulsion polymers. The emulsifier and emulsification system used in styrene-acrylic emulsion polymerization have a great influence on the polymerization and emulsion properties of styrene-acrylic emulsion.

Studies have shown that: the structure of the emulsifier, the critical micelle concentration (CMC) or the amount of emulsifier and the ratio of emulsifier to monomer in the initial stage have an impact on the particle size and distribution of the emulsion, viscosity and film-forming temperature, polymer stability and coating film The continuity, integrity, water resistance, adhesion, etc. have a very important impact.

Further research shows that: During the polymerization process of styrene-acrylic emulsion, the use of anionic emulsifiers, nonionic emulsifiers, or the use of composite emulsifiers chemically synthesized from these two emulsifiers has better performance than the emulsions developed using anionic emulsifiers alone.

Because the two are used together reasonably or as a compound, the two emulsifier molecules can be alternately adsorbed on the surface of the latex particles, reducing the electrostatic repulsion between ions on the same colloidal particles and enhancing the adsorption fastness of the emulsifier on the colloidal particles. Reduce the charge density on the surface of latex particles, making it easier for negatively charged free radicals to enter the latex particles and increasing the emulsion polymerization speed.

Moreover, a mixture of anionic and nonionic surfactants is essentially a very effective emulsifier of water-insoluble monomers, and changing the ratio of the two can better control the viscosity of the emulsion.

When using anionic and nonionic mixed emulsifiers, the concentration of the emulsifier increases, the latex particles become smaller, the particle size distribution becomes wider, the viscosity of the emulsion increases, and when the total amount of emulsifier is constant, the emulsifier and monomer in the early stage of the polymer reaction The ester molar ratio (E/M) is the determining factor affecting the viscosity of the emulsion.

The larger the initial E/M, the more primary particles are formed, the smaller the emulsion particle size, and the greater its viscosity. In addition, in anionic and nonionic mixed emulsification systems, the type and amount of emulsifier not only affect the emulsion particle size and distribution and emulsion viscosity, but also affect the minimum film-forming temperature of the emulsion.

Because as the particle size of the emulsion becomes smaller, the viscosity increases, which increases the capillary pressure and total surface area of ​​the emulsion film, which is conducive to the mutual penetration of the ion surface chain ends and promotes the deformation of ions to form a film.

Although ordinary surfactants can provide a stabilizing effect to polymer latex and play an important role in emulsion polymerization, in the application of latex after final film formation, it will bring some adverse effects to the product, such as reducing the strength of the polymer.

Water resistance and chemical resistance. In order to overcome the adverse effects of ordinary emulsifiers in latex products while retaining some of the excellent properties of emulsion polymerization and products, an effective method is to replace the emulsifier.

With the development of emulsion polymerization theory, emulsion polymerization technology is also constantly innovating, and many new emulsion polymerization methods have emerged, such as reverse phase polymerization, soap-free emulsion polymerization, emulsion directional polymerization, microemulsion polymerization, and normal phase in non-aqueous media. Polymerization, dispersion polymerization, emulsion condensation polymerization, radiation emulsion polymerization, and emulsion polymerization to prepare latex particles with special-shaped structures, etc.

Various high-performance emulsion polymers can be prepared, such as normal temperature cross-linked polymer emulsions, core-shell structure polymer emulsions, nanoparticle polymer emulsions, reactive polymer emulsions and interpenetrating network polymer emulsions.

Some new technologies such as core-shell emulsion polymerization, soap-free emulsion polymerization, inorganic-organic composite emulsion polymerization technology, etc. have been widely used in foreign resin production. Product properties such as freeze-thaw resistance, low-temperature construction performance, storage stability, etc. Great improvements and improvements. (Styrene Acrylic Emulsion Supplier)
