The Interfacial Structure and Adhesion Mechanism of N-(2-Aminoethyl)-3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane and Epoxy Modified Silicone Tie-Coating to Epoxy Primer

Polymers (Basel). 2021 Sep 4;13(17):3001. doi: 10.3390/polym13173001.


The matching application of silicone antifouling coating and epoxy primer is a major problem in engineering. Novel epoxy-modified silicone tie-coating was prepared to tie epoxy primer and silicone antifouling coating. Firstly, N-(2-Aminoethyl)-3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane was mechanically mixed with bisphenol A epoxy resin to form silylated epoxy resin, then the silylated epoxy resin was uniformly mixed with hydroxy-terminated polydimethylsiloxane and a curing agent and catalyst for coating. An infrared spectrometer, differential scanning calorimeter and tensile tests were used to investigate the chemical structure, phase transition temperature and mechanical properties of the tie-coatings. The interlaminar adhesion of the matching coating system was tested and analyzed by a peel-off test and a shear test. Fracture morphology was observed by scanning using an electron microscope. The results showed that crosslinking density of the tie-coating, the elastic modulus and the tensile strength of the coating increased with an increasing epoxy content, but fracture elongation decreased. The shear strength of the matching coating system is 0.37 MPa, and it shows a good tie performance. The maximum anti-peeling rate of the tie-coating on the epoxy primer reaches 100%.
