Abstract:

Air Force contract F33615-78-C-5096 proposes the development of an aqueous resin system to function as the pigment binding vehicle of a waterborne coating for aircraft. Four series of novel polymers were synthesized, dispersed into aqueous medium, formulated with crosslinking agents, and evaluated for fluid resistance and flexibility. The series of anionic acrylic dispersions produced four members capable of resisting all fluids except water. Flexibility was poor. The series of anionic urethane dispersions produced on resin capable of resisting all fluids except water. Flexibility again was poor. The series of cationic urethanes produced one candidate capable of resisting all fluids except water. Flexibility was erratic. The series of cationic acrylics produced three resins resisting all but water. Flexibility was poor. Author
