Abstract

A series of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA)/polysiloxane composites and their coatings were prepared as designed. A copolymer (PMMAVTEOS) containing methyl methacrylate (MMA) and vinyltriethoxysilane (VTEOS) was prepared by free radical polymerization and then condensed with methyl triethoxysilane (MTES) to fabricate PMMA/polysiloxane composites; their corresponding coatings were obtained via a curing process in an oven (at 75 °C). The polymers were characterized by gel permeation chromatography and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The surface property, hardness, water contact angle, thermal stability, and optical property of the coatings were investigated by scanning electron microscopy, pencil hardness testing, water contact angle testing, thermogravimetric analysis, and ultraviolet–visible spectroscopy, respectively. The results showed that, after addition of MMA, the pencil hardness of the coatings was reduced from 6H to 2H and the thermal stability decreased from 365 to 314 °C. However, it increased the flexibility and adhesion properties (the water contact angle increased from 94.7° to 102.1°). The transparent PMMA/polysiloxane coatings showed excellent scratch resistance, a smooth surface, high thermal stability, and a strong adhesion property. © 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J. Appl.
