The blending of mineral fillers with organic polymeric materials typically provides highly improved mechanical and physical properties of the cured polymer. Unfortunately, the use of conventional mineral filling materials (e.g.
Over the last 40 years, miniemulsion polymerization has resulted in the generation of many polymer colloidal structures, currently unattainable by other heterophase processes. One of its salient features is the virtual lack of monomer transport across the aqueous phase.
The organic coatings used for outdoor applications, should be protected against the harmful solar radiation to overcome the photodegradation resulting in changes in optical and mechanical properties of the coating.
