The combination of UV-curing and nanocomposite technology has been studied to produce cost-effective coatings with superior physical and mechanical properties. The clay was modified with dimethyl dihydrogenated-tallow quaternary ammonium salt and made organophilic. The effect of the organoclay(2-10 phr) on curing rate, mechanical, thermal and physical properties of a urethane-acrylate coating has been determined. X-ray diffraction analysis, AFM, SEM and TEM images as well as the tensile properties of different formulations have confirmed the uniform distribution of organoclay in polymer matrix. At 3 phr organoclay addition, the UV-cured film exhibited the best mechanical performance due to the formation of both intercalated and exfoliated morphologies. Curing time was reduced and the initial thermal decomposition temperature shifted 50°C to higher temperature by the incorporation of small amount of organoclay. The nanocomposite coating was also found to be more resistant against scratching compared with clay-free coating.
