This work aims to reveal the effect of a high amount of cellulose fibers on the durability and protective behavior of a bio-based wood paint. The influence of the filler on the morphology of the coatings was investigated by scanning electron microscopy observations, while the durability of the paint was evaluated by exposing the samples to UV-B radiation and continuous thermal shocks.

Abstract

This work aims to reveal the effect of a high amount of cellulose fibers on the durability and protective behavior of a bio-based wood paint. The influence of the filler on the morphology of the coatings was investigated by scanning electron microscopy observations, while the durability of the paint was evaluated by exposing the samples to UV-B radiation and continuous thermal shocks. Infrared spectroscopy analysis, colorimetric inspections, adhesion tests and scanning electron microscope observations were employed to assess the role of the high concentrations of fillers in affecting the resilience of the acrylic matrix. Moreover, the impact of the filler on the barrier performance of the coatings was estimated using a liquid resistance test and a water uptake test. Finally, the mechanical properties of hardness and abrasion resistance of the layers were evaluated by means of the Buchholz Hardness Indentation test and the Scrub test. Ultimately, this study demonstrates the pros and cons of using large amounts of cellulose fibers as filler in wood paint: the work warns against the excessive use of these fibers, which need a threshold limit so as not to significantly change the coating’s structure and thereby weaken its protective properties.
