The morphology and adhesive properties of waterborne films from n-butyl acrylate/methyl methacrylate/montmorillonite clay hybrid polymer latexes which were synthesized by miniemulsion polymerization in the presence of a reactive organoclay ((2-methacryloylethyl) hexadecyldimethylammonium modified montmorillonite, CMA16) were investigated. It was found by cryo-TEM analysis that the hybrid dispersions were a mixture of colloidal particles composed of a small fraction of free montmorillonite clay platelets, polymer latex particles, polymer particles to which one or more clay platelets where adhered onto its surface and a fraction of colloidal material consisted of a clay platelet with a polymer lob adhered to either side, in other words hybrid particles with a dumbbell-like morphology. The films made from these waterborne hybrid dispersions presented a homogeneous dispersion of the clay platelets and exfoliated morphology. The shear adhesion failure temperature (SAFT) and shear resistance of the hybrid latex films synthesized with CMA16 were better than those prepared with a commercial clay (Cloisite 30B), but presented a liquid-like probe-tack performance. When allyl methacrylate (AMA) was added in the formulation, SAFT and shear resistance improved, but the film had a very low energy of adhesion due to the excessively crosslinked matrix. In order to reduce crosslink density and thus improve the adhesion energy, small amounts of chain transfer agent, in this case n-dodecyl mercaptan (n-DDM), were used in the miniemulsion polymerization process. Adhesive films made from these waterborne hybrid dispersions showed excellent SAFT and shear resistance, and good energy of adhesion. [Figure not available: see fulltext.] © 2012 Springer-Verlag.
