Influence of the polarity of plasticizer and degree of hydrolysis of Poly-Vinyl Acetate polymer matrix on the Segregation in Films

Dr Richard Thompson, Mr Matthew Litwinowicz, Dr Ophelie Squillace, Miss Rebecca Fong & Dr Nina-Juliane Steinke
Migration of small molecules to, and across the surface of polymer matrices is a little-studied problem with important industrial applications. PVAc films are of industrial significance as the material of choice for the manufacture of latex paints, glue, food coatings. It is important to understand how additives present in the films can segregate to interfaces as these factors can severely affect the desired properties of the films. We have used surface tension experiments to underpin...
