Improvement of the water-vapor barrier properties of an uv-cured epoxy coating containing graphite oxide nanoplatelets

In this paper we investigated the improvement of water-vapor barrier properties of an UV-cured epoxy film containing graphite oxide nanoplatelets. Graphene platelets were successfully dispersed in the epoxy resin and cured by UV-irradiation. Good performances in increasing water vapor barrier properties at a very low filler loading are obtained: the permeability decreased of about 40% with a 0.5 wt.% of GOx and of about 60% with a 1.0 wt.% of GOx. These good results are attributed to a homogeneous filler dispersion, as clearly shown by TEM microscopy.
