Polymer Nanocomposites for Adhesive, Coating, and Paint Applications


The chapter presents a comprehensive account on the flurry of research works engulfing the utility of clay- and C-based polymeric nanocomposites, both the synthetic and bio-based ones undergoing renaissance since the 1990s in the realm of adhesives, coatings, and paints. The chapter focuses on the technological innovations of the nanocomposites and the modulations in the factors affecting the same as a function of shape-size accord of nanomaterials mainly clay- and C-based nanomaterials. In essence, the different physico-mechanical properties and various types of nanocomposites are critically scrutinized to bring out their potentiality in the aforementioned domains. The recent demand for low-temperature, radiation-cured, and waterborne high-solid content coatings gaining commercial importance has been highlighted. The chapter also pens down the scientific endeavor made in the contemporary times to bridge up the gap between the laboratories and the laymen. The present appraisal also intends to provoke a debate in the concluding section on the different strategies for upscaling of the current technologies and their impact on the environment.
