techniques. The UV curing system is a high-speed process where UV light induces the polymeric film formation leading to a fast transformation of the wet film into the solid film. UV-curing formulations provide some benefits such as fast cure response,excellent chemical resistance, good weathering characteristics, and broad formulating latitude. In the field of UV curing industries, epoxy and epoxy acrylate derivatives have been widely used as coatings, structural adhesives and advanced composite matrices. Epoxy resins are a major class of commercial resins and they are characterized by the possession of more than one 1,2-epoxy groups per molecule, which are the active centers of the resin. What distinguishes epoxy resins from the other polymers is their excellent chemical and solvent resistance, good thermal and adhesion properties, versatility in cross-linking. Besides organic inorganic hybrid materials have gained considerable attention recently because of its superior mechanical properties, thermal stability, and optical properties. Of particular interest is the acrylic silica hybrid which has found great use in the optical membrane application. While acrylics provide easy processibility and optical transparency, silica particles provide hardness and scratch resistance. However, the incompatibility between the acrylics and the silica causes poor dispersion of silica particles in the acrylics matrix and makes a direct blending of acrylics and silica particles impossible. Therefore, significant efforts have been devoted to forming chemical bonding between the acrylics and silica particles. Because the sol-gel processes, which involve an in situ formation of bonded silica particles via the reaction of tetraethylorthosilane with preformed acrylic polymers containing alkoxysilane functional groups, often require a significant amount of effort to eliminate the byproducts (water or alcohol) and a prolonged time to reach the desired extent of reaction, attempts on using acrylic monomers with preformed silica particles which have been functionalized with compatible and copolymerizable organic species have been made. In this study, diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBA) epoxy resin was reacted with various amounts of terephthalic acid and acrylic acid. The formed resin was used for preparing three different formulations, coated and cured by UV light. The characterizations of coatings were performed by spectroscopic tools and the thermal and mechanical properties of the formulations were investigated. xv xvi MODİFİYELİ EPOKSİ AKRİLAT SENTEZİ ÖZET Son yıllarda UV kürlenebilir kaplama teknikleri avantajlarından dolayı termal kürlenebilir tekniklerine göre daha büyük bir ilgi çekmektedir. UV kürlenebilir sistemi; UV ışının ıslak filmden katı filme hızlı bir dönüşüme yol açan polimerik film oluşumuna neden olduğu hızlı bir işlemdir. UV kürlenebilir formülasyonlar hızlı kürlenme, mükemmel kimyasal direnç, iyi şartlanma özellikleri ve geniş formule edilebilir kapsamı gibi bazı faydalar sağlarlar. UV ile kürleme endüstrisinde epoksi ve epoksi akrilat türevleri kaplamalar, yapı yapıştırıcıları, ileri komposit materyalleri olarak geniş bir çerçevede kullanılmaktadır. Epoksi reçineler ticari reçinelerin büyük bir sınıfıdır ve reçinenin aktif merkezi olan her moleküldeki birden fazla epoksi grubuna sahip olma özelliği ile tanımlanır. Epoksi reçineleri diğerlerinden ayıran şey mükemmel kimyasal ve solvent direncidir, iyi ısısal ve yapışma özellikleri, çapraz bağlanmada çeşitliliğidir. Bunun yanı sıra organik-inorganik hibrid materyaller süper mekanik özellikler, ısısal kararlılık ve optiksel özelliklerinden dolayı büyük bir ilgi kazanmaktadır. Asıl ilgi de optiksel membran uygulamasında büyük bir kullanım barındıran akrilik-silika hibrid materyalidir. Akrilikler kolay işlenebilirlik ve optiksel geçirgenlik sağlıyorken, silika partikülleri sertlik ve çizilme direnci sağlar. Ama silika ve akrilikler arasındaki uyumsuzluk akrilik malzemesindeki silika partiküllerinin kötü dispersiyonuna neden olur ve silika ve akriliklerin direkt bir karşımını imkansız kılar. Bu yüzden akrikler ve silikalar arasındaki kimyasal bağların oluşumuna önemli eforlar harcanılmaktadır. Alkoksisilan grubu taşıyan öncül akrilik polimerlerle tetraetilortosilanın reaksiyonu vasıtasıyla bağlı silikanın yerinde oluşumunu gerektiren solgel işlemleri, istenilen reaksiyon derecesine ulaşmak için uzatılmış zaman ve alkol su gibi ürünleri yok edebilecek önemli eforları gerektirdiğinden dolayı uygun ve kopolimerize edilebilir organik türlerle fonsiyonlaştırılmış öncül silika partiküllerle akrilik monomerlerini kullanma girişimleri yapılmaktadır. Bu çalışmada digilisidileter bisfenol A epoksi reçine tereftalik asit ve akrilik asitin değişen oranlarıyla reaksiyona sokuldu. Oluşan reçine üç farklı formülasyon hazırlamada kullanıldı, kaplandı ve UV ışığıyla kürlendi. Kaplamanın özellikleri spektroskopik aletlerle ölçüldü ve formülasyonların ısısal ve mekanik özellikleri incelendi. xvii xviii 1. INTRODUCTION Early surface coatings were limited mainly to air drying systems which film formed by either evaporation of solvent, to leave a dried film of the natural resin or oxidative crosslinking of any unsaturation present in vegetable oil based binders. French polish, based upon shellac is an example of the first type of coating, whilst alkyds or oleoresinious based systems are example of the latter. Today coatings can be divided into thermoplastic and thermoset. Thermoplastic systems primarily film form by the evaporation of solvent. As a general rule, thermoplastic coatings are based on high molecular weight polymers. Solutions of high molecular weight thermoplastic resins are normally too high in viscosity for the desired applications solids, hence dispersions of thermoplastic resins are frequently used. The natural resins were used in the protective surface coatings industry in the past but the use of natural resins has decreased in the USA since about 1930, when they were replaced by synthetic resins.the one type of synthetic resin is epoxy resin. Epoxy resins only became commercially avaliable in about 1947 [1]. Epoxy resins are commercially used in coating and various applications. The largest single use in coatings, where high chemical and corrosion resistance and adhesion are important. The presence of unsaturation at the end of the polymer backbone as a result of the reaction with acid functional acrylic monomers hs shaped epoxy resins for the radiation curing industry. Terminal unsaturated double bonds are the reactive sites for coatings and paints [2-6]. Unsaturated monofunctional and multifunctional acrylated monomer and acrylated oligomers having epoxy backbone are capable of a rational designed formulation that provides good coating properties after curing. In general, the cure process is radical and results in three dimensional network formation. The curing process is the faster and depends on the radiation dose and the time of radiation. UV curing, i.e., the process of photoinitiated conversion of polymeric materials from a liquid to a solid is a popular alternative to conventional thermal curing. UV curing process has attractive advantages over thermal curing. 1 Their major advantages are high speed process, low energy consumption due to the operation at room temparature, and enviromental friendliness by avoiding solvent exposure [7-9]. This thesis will concern the preparation of bifuctional resin formed by reaction between epoxy acrylate oligomer and terephthalic acid at different modification ratio. The modified resin is crosslinked by photo polymerization and characterized by thermal and mechanic analaysis. The coating performance is also examined. 2 2. THEORETICAL PART 2.1 Epoxy Resins Introduction Epoxy resins are organic compounds with more than one epoxide (IUPAC: oxirane) group per molecule which are used to obtain prepolymers. The term resins is now generally accepted although misleading since the compounds refferred to are low molecular mass or oligomeric compounds. Polymerization by polyaddition is based on the characteristic behaviour of epoxide groups to react with suitable reaction partners by addition. The reactivity and functionality of the di-, tri- and tetra-epoxide compounds (epoxy resins) and crosslinking compounds (curing agents) must however correspond to each other.epoxy resins can also be crosslinked directly by polymerization of the epoxide groups. The designations resin and curing agent or hardener are historical in origin but are totally irrelevant from a scientific viewpoint. Epoxy resins systems (resin/hardener combinations) are used primarily to obtain crosslinked polymers which are also usually termed epoxy resins but, correctly, should be described by detailing the crosslinking components. The use of diepoxide compounds with bifunctional addition components results in linear, soluble strcture. Adding small amounts of trifunctional components leads to branched soluble structure. Because of the numerous possibilities of combining resin and curing agent structures (known technically as formulation), the properties of epoxy resin systems are particularly easy to adjust, firstly as far as viscosity and rheological characteristics during processing, and secondly, as far as properties of the end product are concerned (tailor-made plastics). The range of applications can be considerably expanded by judicious addition or incorporation of additives such as fillers, reinforcements, flame retardants, flexibilizers and pigments. In contrast to the soluble melt-processable thermoplastics, crosslinked epoxy resins can not be shaped by heat. Their industrial application must therefore be performed in the non- 3 crosslinked state (in sollution if necessary) and the crosslinked state achieved by heat treatment or suitably extended curing times at ambient temperature [10]. Although the first products that would now be called epoxy resins were synthesized as early as 1891 it was not until the independent work of Pierre Castan in Switzerland and Sylvan Greenlee in the United States that commercial epoxy resins were marketed in the 1940s, although similar resins had been patented in the 1930s. The earliest epoxy resins marketed were the reaction products of bisphenol A and epichlorohydrin (Figure 2.1.) and this is still the major route for the manufacture of most of the resins marketed today, although there are many other types of resin available [11]. Figure 2.1: Reaction of bisphenol A and epichlorohydrin Epoxy resins are synthetic and are not the lowest cost resins potentially avaliable for most applications. Thus they most confer a property or properties to the final product which justifies their additional cost. In almost all cases they impart outstanding chemical /corrosion resistance to the cured film. If this is not required then the formulator can consider other lower cost options. Protective coatings are an area in whic
