Abstract

Fluorine-modified unsaturated polyester resins (FUPR) were prepared by using polycaprolactone-perfluoropolyether-polycaprolactone triblock copolymers having hydroxyl or methacrylate end-groups. Despite the immiscibility of the perfluoropolyether segment, all the modified resins were fully transparent after curing thanks to the compatibilization effect of the polycaprolactone segments. Contact angle measurements showed a very low water wettability for all investigated resin compositions. Also in the case of system with the lower bulk copolymer concentration (less than 0.3 phr) contact angles were higher than 94°. It has been demonstrated that the presence of methacrylate end-groups tends to hinder the surface segregation of the fluorinated additive.
