Green Waterborne UV-Curable Castor Oil-Based Urethane Acrylate Coatings

A series of novel waterborne UV-curable polyurethane dispersions were synthesized from castor oil, IPDI, DMPA, and HEMA by the acetone process. The prepared UV-PUD was mixed with three different monomers and characterized for the parameters relevant to the study by physical, spectroscopic, and chemical methods. The effect of monomer type on the physicochemical and thermal properties of UV-PUDs revealed that the number of unsaturated groups present in the monomer had a pronounced effect on physicochemical, mechanical, and thermal properties. The combination of renewable resource and environmentally compliant technology give these UV-PUDs potential scope in coating applications.
