Types of Fluorosilicone Resin

Resins can be categorized based on their properties as thermoplastic or thermosetting. Thermoplastic resins can dissolve in solvents, melt upon heating, solidify upon cooling, and undergo this process repeatedly. In contrast, thermosetting resins irreversibly solidify upon heating and cannot be dissolved or melted afterward.

Fluorosilicone resins involve introducing organofluorosilane polymers into other polymers to enhance their surface properties, resulting in functional, low surface energy polymer materials.

Fluorosilicone resins primarily fall under the category of thermoplastic resins. They can be classified into four main types based on the type of modification:

1. Fluorosilicone Modified Acrylic Resin:

Introduction of a certain amount of fluorosilane monomers into acrylic resin emulsions. Leveraging the high C-F bond energy and the low surface energy of Si-O bonds, this modification imparts excellent weather resistance, durability, chemical resistance, corrosion resistance, insulation, flame resistance, low-temperature flexibility, water repellency, non-adhesiveness, and pollution resistance to the coatings.

2. Fluorosilicone Modified Polyurethane:

Introducing fluorine and silicon elements into polyurethane polymers effectively combines the advantages of both, resulting in significantly improved surface properties of polyurethane films. This modification imparts excellent water resistance, oil resistance, and wear resistance.

3. Fluorosilicone Modified Epoxy Resin:

Overcoming the drawbacks of epoxy resin, the modified epoxy resin exhibits significantly improved adhesion, hardness, impact resistance, heat resistance, water resistance, and weather resistance in the coating. This makes it more suitable for industrial production requirements.

4. Fluorosilicone Modified Organosilicon Resin:

After modifying organosilicon resin with organofluorine resin, the fluorosilicone resin combines the excellent properties of both resins. It demonstrates outstanding corrosion resistance, weather resistance, self-cleaning ability, impact resistance, and can form a film at room temperature with a service life exceeding 20 years.

These modifications leverage the unique characteristics of fluorosilicone compounds to enhance the performance of base resins across various applications.
