Abstract

The curing characteristics of clearcoats, including a thermal curing initiator (TRI) newly designed from O-imino-isourea and photo-initiator (PI), were investigated by means of different mono-curing and dual-curing pathways. The competitive relationship between TRI and PI on the curing pattern, reacting with acrylate double bonds in a clearcoat was elucidated by altering the UV and thermal sequence in the dual-curing process, through various experimental methods. From the rheological properties of clearcoats along the curing time, two dual-curing methods showed the different evolution of curing patterns. In the UV-thermal dual-curing case, the initial infusion of UV light promoted free radical polymerization during the subsequent thermal curing by generating considerable free radicals, and exhibiting a higher growth rate of elastic modulus during the curing in comparison with the thermal-UV dual-curing case. However, the final modulus value in the thermal-UV dual-curing case was higher due to the suppression of thermal curing by the steric hindrance in the UV-thermal dual-curing. The level of crosslinked networks in clearcoats via different curing steps can be explicitly figured out from the double bond conversion from FT-IR, curing pattern from rigid-body pendulum test, and scratch properties from nano-scratch test.
