The purpose of this paper is to develop pyridine polyesteramide coatings from Linseed (Linum ussitatissimum) seeds oil for the utilisation of a sustainable resource as coating material, as well as to improve the coating properties.
Linseed oil was first converted into N,N bis 2‐hydroxyethyl linseed oil fatty amide (HELA). The resin was synthesized by the reaction of linseed oil fatty amide diol with 2,3‐pyridine di carboxylic acid to develop pyridine polyesteramide (Py‐PEA) and further treated with poly(styrene‐co‐maleic anhydride)(SMA) in different phr (part per hundred part of resin). The structural elucidation of Py‐PEA was carried out by FT‐IR, 1H‐NMR and 13C‐NMR spectral techniques. The thermal stability and curing behaviour of the resin were determined by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), respectively. The physico‐mechanical and anticorrosive properties were investigated by standard laboratory methods.
The authors developed a good anticorrosive coating material from sustainable resource. The physico‐mechanical and anticorrosive performance evaluation exhibited satisfactory results. The approach facilitated curing to occur at ambient temperature and the thermal studies revealed that Py‐PEA‐SMA‐45 might be safely used up to 140°C.
Poly(styrene‐co‐maleic anhydride) modified pyridine polyesteramide coatings showed the highest scratch hardness 3.0 kg, flexibility (1/8 inch canonical mandrel bend test) and gloss at 45° is 62‐64. Among all, Py‐PEA‐SMA 45 showed the best physico‐mechanical and chemical resistance performance. Thus, the resin may be used as an effective coating material.
The paper shows that the synthesis of polyesteramide resin from vegetable oil provides a new way to utilize a renewable resource based raw material.
