Consequently, the ratio of styrene to acrylamide monomer was kept constant at 7 mol% throughout the synthesis work.
has obtained a patent for a method for improving the adhesion of coatings to an inorganic or organic substrate wherein at least one copolymer or cooligomer comprised of monomer units derived from at least one monomer selected from the group consisting of acrylate and acrylamide monomers, at least one monomer selected from the group consisting of amine containing ethylenically unsaturated monomers, at least one monomer selected from the group consisting of ethylenically unsaturated associative monomers and at least one monomer selected from the group consisting of polyacrylates of polyols, is added to the coating and the copolymer or cooligomer is at least partially neutralized with acid prior to application to the inorganic or organic substrate.
An investigation on graft polymerization of NTBA onto PP could improve grafting efficiencies of acrylamide monomers on the polymer and provide better understanding on reactions with N-substituted monomers.
