EFFECT OF ZNO NANOPARTICLES ON PROPERTIES OF NANOCOMPOSITE COATING BASED ON ACRYLIC POLYMER EMULSION AND GRAPHENE OXIDE
Keywords:acrylic polymer emulsion, graphene oxide, ZnO nanoparticle, photocatalytic activity, thermal stability, abrasion resistance
AbstractEffect of ZnO nanoparticles on nanocomposite coatings based on R4152 and graphene oxide (GO) was studied.In presence of 2%wt. ZnO nanoparticle, abrasion resistance of coating increased by nearly 25% (from 75 to 92.9 L/mil) and temperature decomposition raised by 18oC. SEM images showed that nano ZnO can disperse homogenously in polymer matrix in presence of GO. Hence, photocatalytic activity of R4152/GO/ZnO nanocomposite coating was higher than that of R4152/ZnO nanocomposite coating. After 14 hours UV exposure, R4152/GO/ZnO nanocomposite coating can degrade over 80% methylene blue coated on its surface while 60% methylene blue was degraded by R4152/ZnO coatings.
