Researchers from India investigated the effects of organic-inorganic hybrid (OIH) cross linker which was prepared by using melamine formaldehyde (MF) and 3 isocynatopropyl triethoxy silane (IPTES) on various properties like physico-mechanical, adhesion, thermal stability and anticorrosive properties of waterborne linseed alkyd coatings. It was explained that the enhancement in coating properties could be in terms of synergistic effect of s-triazine ring of melamine formaldehyde and IPTES. Moreover, it was claimed that this work opens a new avenue for many applications requiring barrier against moisture and corrosion protection.
