The invention relates to the chemistry of polymers, and in particular to methods of obtaining water styrene-acrylic polymer dispersions, which are widely used in various industries, such as film-forming agents for paints and varnishes, petlevoj, plasters, glues, adhesives for wood, paper, textiles; as a binder in the manufacture of paper, molded; as a binder in the construction industry, in particular as additives to concrete, construction adhesives, building solutions.
The above multi-purpose water dispersion of styrene-acrylic copolymer leads to increased requirements to the quality of its products, primarily low content of residual monomers, the increased stability of the dispersion, and a high level of cohesion and adhesion properties to various materials (metal, wood, stone, paper, textiles), as well as other high performance properties, such as elasticity, mechanical strength, water-resistant films and coatings based on it.
A known method of reducing the content of residual monomers in aqueous dispersions of polymers in the process of obtaining them is their depolymerization by introducing an additional amount of initiator after the end of the main polymerization process. Describe the method of obtaining aqueous dispersions of (meth)acrylic (co)polymers by emulsion polymerization of the pre-emulsified monomers in the presence of water-soluble redox systems the basis of peroxides followed by depolymerization in the presence of additional redox system (Japan's bid No. 54-6089, CL 08 F 2/02, epubl).
At the stage of preliminary emulsification to prepare a mixture containing monomers (for example, methyl methacrylate, butyl acrylate, Acrylonitrile and acrylic acid), emulsifier, water and a redox system containing a potassium persulfate and sodium metabisulfite. As an emulsifier, a mixture of dodecylbenzenesulfonate sodium and ethoxylated Nonylphenol. The correlation of phases monomers: water in the emulsion is 1:1,45.
The first main stage polymerization is carried out by dosingthe mixture in the reactor, containingthis mixture, when 60-75°C for 1 h Then add 30 minutes additional amount of methyl methacrylate and specified redox system and continue the reaction until completion of polymerization.
In the second stage of polymerization of the polymer mixture is cooled to 45-50°add in another redox system containing a peroxide tert-butyl and ascorbic acid, and incubated for about 1 h to Receive the aqueous dispersion of a copolymer with the following content of residual monomers: metalmetal elata 0,013%, of butyl acrylate 0,035% and Acrylonitrile 0,021%.
The described method allows to reduce the content of residual monomers. However, this comes at the expense of introduction of the initiator on the primary stage of polymerization and additional Stora stage depolymerization, which complicates the process.
Due to the specified multi-purpose such polymer dispersion should provide a high degree of penetration of the material into the surface with low porosity (less than 1 Ám). Usually the best penetration into porous substrates, provide solutions of polymers in organic solvents. Dispersion polymers generally having a sufficiently large size particles do not penetrate into the porous substrate to a depth necessary to achieve high adhesion and strength complex paintwork.
At the present time in connection with the tightening of requirements of ecological safety of construction works extremely relevant is the use of a complex of a water-dispersible materials, including primers, deep penetration, strengthen cement and concrete substrate and improve the quality of application of finishing coats of paint (increase coverage and improve the appearance of the coating, in particular when refinishing old substrates (the restoration work. In addition, the use of dispersions of copolymers with small particle size in the formulation of paints and varnishes for finishing works in construction, coating and other applications will improve the continuity of the film, to increase the resistance and service life of the coatings.
To obtain a film-forming method set forth in A.S. No. 197171, with the aim of increasing the adhesion properties of coatings using acrylamide or methacrylamide. The resulting copolymer also contains a reduced amount of coagulate. However, the copolymer obtained in this way contains a significant amount of residual monomers (0,1-0,2%), and the particle size of the dispersion is 180-250 nm.
From RU 2171813, 10.08.2001 known method of preparation of stable aqueous dispersions of polymers by radical polymerization ethanobotany monomers (vinyl aromatic hydrocarbons, such as styrene, α,β-monomethylethanolamine mono - and dicarboxylic acids, such as acrylic acid, methacrylic acid, their amides, esters of (meth)acrylic acid) according to the method of the suspension or emulsion polymerization in the presence of one or more colloids with a molecular weight ≤500000, containing
a) at least 20 wt.% Monomeric units containing sulfoxylate or sulphonate group,
b) 480 wt.% Monomeric units, containing N - methylol - or N-alkoxymethyl group,

The amount of emulsifier depends on the composition in liberatoaa system and the effectiveness of the emulsifier and 0.5-10 wt.%.
