Acrylated Lesquerella Oil in Ultraviolet Cured Coatings
A triglyceride of hydroxy fatty acids, lesquerella oil (LO), was structurally modified and used for the first time in the design, synthesis and evaluation of UV cured coatings. The results demonstrate that LO derivatives improved adhesion to metal substrates. For instance, methacrylated LO significantly improved adhesion to steel, and hydroxyethylmethacrylated LO improved adhesion to steel and aluminum substrates. The use of LO derivatives slightly lowered crosslink density and solvent resistance, and increased flexibility at the expense of T g.
