A process for producing scratch-resistant coatings, particularly for the production of gene Mehrschichtlackierun-
The present invention is a process for producing scratch-resistant coatings, particularly of scratch-resistant multicoat paint systems.
The present invention also relates to coating compositions suitable for this process.
In recent years, acid in the development and etchbeständiger clear coats for automotive paint series made great progress. More recently, now an increasing desire in the automotive industry for scratch-resistant clearcoats which retain the same in the other properties the existing level of properties.
Currently, there is but for the quantitative evaluation of the scratch resistance of a coating, various test methods, however, such as the examination using the BASF brush test, ilherstellern by means of the washing-brush equipment AMTEC or different test methods for automobile is among others disadvantageous in that the individual test results are often not correlatable , that is, the test results for the same coating can be very different depending on the chosen test method and the existence of a scratch resistance test allowed may not necessarily indicative of the behavior in another scratch test.
There is therefore a need for a method for the quantitative evaluation of the scratch resistance, are possible when using only an examination of the sample reliable statements about the scratch resistance of the coating. In particular, the results of this study should allow reliable conclusions on the scratch resistance of the coating in the various above tests the scratch resistance.
some studies of the physical processes in the generation of scratches and derived from relationships between the scratch resistance and other physical ISIN large coating are now described in the literature. A recent review of various literature on scratch-resistant coatings can be found for example in JL Courter, 23rd Annual International Waterborne, High-Solids and Powder Coatings Symposium, New Orleas 1996th
In addition, "Relationship Between Viscoelastic Property and Scratch Resistance of top coat clear film" Toso Kagaku 1994, for example, in the article by S. Sano et al, 2_9 (12), pages 475 -. 480, the scratch resistance of various thermally curing Mela determined in / acrylate or isocyanate / acrylate systems with the aid of a washing brush test and set the scratch resistance found in relation to the viscoelastic properties of the coating.
For the reasons described there test results the authors conclude that the coatings would then show a good scratch resistance when either the so-called "inter-crosslinking molecular weight" was below 500, or if the glass transition temperature of 15 ° C or is lower, which is in the case of clear coat films automotive is necessary, however, that in order to achieve sufficient hardness of the coatings, the glass transition temperature lies above 15 ° C. Also in the article by M. Rösler, E. G. pawl and Kunz in Farbe + Lack, Volume 10, 1994, pages 837-843, the scratch resistance of various coatings is examined by means of different test methods. DA in was found that hard coatings at the same load greater damage and thus a lower scratch resistance as soft coatings.
Furthermore, even in the conference report by BV Grego- rovich and PJ Mc Gonical, Proceedings of the Advanced Coatings Technology Conference, Illinois, USA, 3 to 5 November 1992, pages 121-125, found that by increasing the plastic nature (toughness) of the scratch resistance of coatings because of the improved plastic flow (annealing of the scraper) is improved, but the increase of the thermoplastic character boundaries are set by the other properties of the coating.
Further Progress are from P. Betz and A. Bartelt, in
Organic Coatings, 22 (1993), pages 27 - 37, various methods for determining the scratch resistance of coatings are known. This article also pointed out that the scratch resistance of loading layers except through the glass transition temperature, for example, still affected by the homogeneity of the network.
In this article it is proposed to increase the scratch resistance of the clear lacquer coatings by the incorporation of siloxane macromonomers, as these siloxane lead macromonomers in an increased homogeneity of the clear coat surface and above 60 ° C to an improved plastic flow. Furthermore, for example, Loren W. Hill, Journal of Coatings Technology, Vol. 64, No. 808, May 1992, pages 29 to 41, the relationship between the storage modulus and crosslinking density known. Notes or arrival gave as scratch-resistant coatings can be obtained, but are not included in this article.
Further, a method for coating surfaces is known from DE-C-39 18 968., be used in the clear lacquers based on hydroxyl-containing resins and poly isocyanates, whose composition is set such that the clear coat layer after curing has a molecular weight of the chain between crosslinks of up to 200 (measured by the method Xylolquell-) has. However, these clearcoats in scratch resistance of the resulting coatings are still in need of improvement.
Finally, from DE-A-43 10 414 and DE-A-42 04 518 non-aqueous clearcoat materials based on hydroxyl-containing acrylate resins and isocyanates for the production of multilayer lacquer coatings, in which the resultant coatings good by an improved scratch resistance and distinguish other characteristics. However, there is also in these clear coats, the desire for a further improved scratch resistance.
The present invention is therefore the object to-reasons, to provide a method for producing coatings with improved scratch resistance available. The coating compositions employed in this method should also paint as a clear coat and / or topcoat for producing a multi-, particularly in the motor vehicle sector, be suitable. Furthermore, the coating should tung medium have a high gloss and good chemical and weather resistance.
In addition, the objective evaluation of the scratch resistance of the cured coating should be independent of the selected test procedure on the basis of physical characteristics possible. Here, this process should be practically used to determine the physical parameters and with reasonable accuracy, a visual evaluation allow adequate characterization of possible scratch resistance.
This object is surprisingly achieved by a process for producing scratch-resistant coatings, which is characterized in that the coating compositions are used which
1 after curing has a storage modulus E 'in the rubber-elastic range of at least 10 7' ^ Pa and a loss factor tans at 20 ° C of at least 0.05, said the storage modulus E 'and the loss factor tans with the dynamic mechanical thermal analysis have been measured on homogeneous free films with a layer thickness of 40 ± 10 microns,
2. as a binder one or more polyacrylate resins having a hydroxyl number from 100 to 240, preferably more than 160 to 220, and particularly preferably 170 to 200, an acid number of 0 to 35, preferably from 0 to 25, and a number average molecular weight of 1,500 to 10,000, preferably 2,500 to 5,000, and
3. one or more free or blocking te isocyanates and / or with the hydroxyl groups of the binder under ether and / or ester formation include as a crosslinking agent crosslinking triazine-based components.
The present application is also a process for preparing a scratch-resistant multi-layer coating as well as suitable for this process coating agent.
It is surprising and was not foreseeable that only by measuring the viscoelastic properties by means of the dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (hereinafter also briefly DMTA called) on free films a universal, representative selection criterion for the provision of coating compositions, to scratch resistant, coatings, is available. The results of the DMTA measurements with the results of different test methods in the scratch resistance can be correlated so that only based on the results of the DMTA measurements statements about the results in other scratch resistance tests, such as the BASF brush test or the AMTEC test, or various test methods of automobile manufacturers, are possible.
In the following, the coating compositions used in the invention of invention process for producing scratch-resistant coatings are first explained in detail.
It is essential to the invention that the coating agent is selected so that the cured coating compositions in the rubber-elastic range, a storage modulus E 'of at least 10 7' 5 Pa, preferably of at least 10 7 'Pa, more preferably of at least 10 7' 7 Pa, and having a loss factor at 20 ° C of at least 0.05, preferably at least 0.07, the storage modulus e 'and the loss factor tans with the dynamic mechanical thermoanalysis on homogeneous free films with a layer thickness of 40 _ + 10 microns have been measured. The loss tangent tan is defined here as the quotient of the dul Verlustmo- E "and the storage modulus E '.
Dynamic mechanical thermal analysis is a widely known measurement method for determining the viscoelastic properties of coatings and examples play as described in Murayama, T., Dynamic Me- chanical Analysis of Polymeric Material, Esevier, New York, 1978 and Loren W. Hill , Journal of Coatings Technology, Vol. 64, No. 808, May, 1992, pages 31 to 33rd
The measurements can be carried out, for example, with the devices MK II, III MK or MK IV from Rheometrics Scientific.
The storage modulus E 'and the loss factor tans are measured on homogeneous free films. The free films are produced in known manner in that the coating composition is applied to substrates and cured, where the coating agent does not adhere. Examples of suitable substrates include glass, Teflon and polypropylene may be mentioned in particular.
Polypropylene has the advantage of ready availability and is therefore normally used as support material.
The layer thickness of the free films used for the measurement is generally 40 + _ 10 microns.
The specific selection of the coating compositions of the value of storage modulus in the rubber-elastic range and the loss factor at 20 ° C of the cured coating composition allows it easily to provide coating agents with the desired good scratch resistance, as both parameters are determined by simple DMTA measurements.
It is surprising that even coatings that have only a moderate or even low plastic component, but have a high to very high storage modulus, provide coatings having a high scratch resistance. With increasing tan delta value and the overall cient high storage modulus E ', however, increases the scratch resistance of the resulting coatings in general. At the same time other performance properties of the coatings can degrade, so that then, due to the other properties of the tan delta value should not exceed 0.1 in this case, a maximum of 0.2, preferably.
The inventive coating used in the process for producing scratch-resistant coatings include tung medium as a binder one or more polyacrylate resins having a hydroxyl number from 100 to 240, preferably more than 160 to 220, and particularly preferably 170 to 200, an acid number of 0 to 35, preferably 0 to 25, and a number average molecular weight from 1,500 to 10,000, preferably 2,500 to
5000. In principle, all polyacrylate resins are suitable with the indicated ratios (OH number, acid number and molecular weight), as long as they lead to crosslinking in coatings with the specified viscoelastic characteristics.
As is well known, but also the respectively selected monomer composition for example, has, inter alia, effect on these characteristics of the viscoelastic Removing the cured coating. For example, increases the storage modulus E 'in general with increasing styrene content of the acrylate from. Therefore, acrylic resins are preferably used as a binder, containing a maximum of 15 wt .-%, based on the total weight of all monomers of the acrylate resin, vinyl aromatic hydrocarbons, particularly styrene, in copolymerized form.
Further, as a binder in the novel coating compositions preferably acrylate with possible liehst many primary hydroxyl groups (particularly preferably at least 50% to 100% of the OH groups are primary OH groups) used, as by a more complete compared to secondary OH groups, the reaction of primary OH groups is also possible to increase the storage modulus e 'of the cured coatings.
Further, particularly preferably used having a glass transition temperature of -40 to +30 ° C, as a binder preferably acrylate resins having a glass transition temperature of at most 70 ° C.
