Oil is Oil…Until It’s Not: An Investigation into the Coating Structure-Property Relationships of Various Process Oils - Firestone Building Products Company, LLC

In an effort to correlate oil industry characterization parameters with properties commonly used in the polymer/coatings industry, sixteen process oils were screened for use in a two-component aromatic polyurethane coating formulation.  A combination of viscosity and proton NMR testing was employed to successfully predict aniline point (oil industry) and cloud point (ink varnish industry) for the various oils.  Aniline/cloud point values were used to interpret oil migration behavior as well as tensile and adhesion properties of the coating films.  Cured film properties of the coatings will be presented.  These results provide a useful framework for the formulator to incorporate process oils in coating formulations.
