Abstract

The mechanism of film formation of emulsifier-free monodisperse poly(n-butyl methacrylate) (PBMA) latex in the presence of postadded alkali-soluble resin (ASR), namely poly(styrene/alpha-methylstyrene/acrylic acid) (SAA) was followed using atomic force microscopy (AFM). The film morphology and peak-to-valley distance (Δz) of latex particles in the film was monitored at different annealing temperatures as a function of annealing duration. The Δz of the PBMA particles in films containing SAA was found to be higher than those in the pure PBMA films. The AFM results suggest very strongly the formation of a hard surface layer of SAA over the soft PBMA particle, and the migration of free SAA to the latex film surface during annealing. The SAA layer adsorbed on and surrounding each PBMA particle retards the viscoelastic flow of the PBMA particles and slows down the gradual coalescence of the particles in film formation. Annealing at high temperature, the PBMA particles fuse at a faster rate than the SAA due to its lower T(g) compared to that of SAA. The difference in the rates of fusion of the SAA and PBMA phases leads to the formation of indentations on individual particles at high annealing temperature and long annealing duration.
