Hydroxylated Guayule Rubber in Powder Coatings
The synthesis, characterization, and application of hydroxylated low molecular weight guayule rubber as a powder coating component is described. In particular, our interest was in the generation of secondary alcohol moieties on a guayule rubber backbone, and its use as part of a novel and, as yet, unreported powder coating formulation. Hydroxylated guayule rubber was found to improve toughness, flexibility, and solvent resistance of powder coatings.
