Abstract:

Some epoxy plastic components resins and curing agents have been synthesized which contain fluorocarbons in their molecular structures. In some cases the fluorocarbon is part of the network structure upon which the strength of the plastic depends, and in all cases it is attached to the network by at least one covalent chemical bond. Among the properties that are obtained with selected resin systems are surface nonwetting by water, low internal absorption of water, and low surface friction of the cured plastics. In specific cases, low-melting or liquid resin systems have been obtained which react upon the application of heat to yield plastics.
