Abstract:

A new family of fluorinated polyether urethanes, based on a novel polyether polyol with fluorinated side chains, was prepared and characterized by surface, mechanical and thermal property measurements. These new materials are elastomers and are characterized by low surface energy, high hydrophobicity, low glass transition temperature, and excellent bonding properties. In addition to high abrasion resistance and low coefficient of friction, coatings prepared from these materials exhibit fouling release characteristics.
