Description
    FIELD
  • [0001]
    This invention relates to water- and oil-repellent fluorochemicals such as fluorourethanes and fluoroureas, and to methods for making the fluorochemicals.
  • BACKGROUND
  • [0002]
    Various fluorinated resins containing urethane linkages are known to have oil and water repellency properties (see, for example, U.S. Pat. No. 4,321,404 (Williams et al.), U.S. Pat. No. 4,778,915 (Lina et al.), U.S. Pat. No. 4,920,190 (Lina et al.), U.S. Pat. No. 5,144,056 (Anton et al.), and U.S. Pat. No. 5,446,118 (Shen et al.)). These resins can be polymerized and applied as coatings to substrates such as, for example, textiles, carpets, wall coverings, leather, and the like to impart water- and oil repellency.
  • [0003]
    Typically, these resins comprise long chain pendant perfluorinated groups (for example, 8 carbon atoms or greater) because long chains readily align parallel to adjacent pendant groups attached to acrylic backbone units, and thus maximize water- and oil-repellency. However, long chain perfluorinated group-containing compounds such as, for example, perfluorooctyl containing compounds may bioaccumulate in living organisms (see, for example, U.S. Pat. No. 5,688,884 (Baker et al.)).
  • SUMMARY
  • [0004]
    In view of the foregoing, we recognize that there is a need for water- and oil-repellent compounds that are less bioaccumulative.
  • [0005]
    Briefly, in one aspect, the present invention provides water- and oil-repellent fluorochemical compounds such as fluorourethanes and fluoroureas that have short chain perfluorinated groups (6 carbon atoms or less), which are believed to be less toxic and less bioaccumulative than longer chain perfluorinated groups (see, for example, WO 01/30873). The fluorochemical compounds of the invention comprise the reaction of (a) the reaction product of:
  • [0006]
    (i) at least one fluorochemical alcohol represented by the formula:
    CnF2n+1—X—OH
      • wherein:
        • n=1 to 6,
        • R=hydrogen or an alkyl group of 1 to 4 carbon atoms,
        • m=2 to 8,
        • Rf=CnF2n+1,
        • y=0 to 6,
        • q=1 to 8; and
      • (ii) at least one unbranched symmetric diisocyanate, and
        (b) at least one co-reactant comprising two or more functional groups that are capable of reacting with an isocyanate group.
  • [0015]
    The invention also provides fluorochemical compounds comprising the reaction product of:
  • [0016]
    (a) at least one fluorinated isocyanate represented by the following general formula:
    CnF2n+1—X—OC(O)NH-A-NCO
      • wherein:
        • n=1 to 6,
        • R=H or an alkyl group of 1 to 4 carbon atoms,
        • m=2 to 8,
        • Rf=CnF2n+1,
        • y=0 to 6,
        • q=1 to 8, and
        • A=an unbranched symmetric alkylene group, arylene group, or aralkylene group; and
  • [0025]
    (b) at least one co-reactant comprising two or more functional groups that are capable of reacting with an isocyanate group.
  • [0026]
    It has been discovered that the fluorochemical compounds of the invention exhibit good water- and oil-repellency properties. In light of the prior art, one would expect that fluorochemical compounds derived from shorter perfluorinated chains would not be as effective at imparting water- and oil-repellency as those derived from longer perfluorinated chains (see, for example, U.S. Pat. No. 2,803,615 (Ahlbrecht et al.) and U.S. Pat. No. 3,787,351 (Olson)). Surprisingly, however, the fluorochemical compounds of the invention exhibit water- and oil-repellency comparable to fluorochemical compounds with longer perfluorinated chains.
  • [0027]
    The fluorochemical compounds of the invention therefore meet the need in the art for water- and oil-repellent compounds that are less bioaccumulative.
  • [0028]
    In other aspects, this invention also provides coating compositions and release coating compositions comprising the fluorochemical compounds, and articles coated with the coating or release coating compositions.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION

    Fluorinated isocyanates useful in the invention are the reaction product of at least one fluorochemical alcohol and at least one unbranched symmetric diisocyanate.
  • [0030]
    Useful fluorochemical alcohols can be represented by the formula:

        • m=2 to 8,
        • Rf=CnF2n+1,

  • [0042]
    The above-described fluorochemical alcohols can be reacted with an unbranched symmetric diisocyanate to form a fluorinated isocyanate. Symmetric diisocyanates are diisocyanates that meet the three elements of symmetry as defined by Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary 1067 (1997). First, they have a center of symmetry, around which the constituent atoms are located in an ordered arrangement. There is only one such center in the molecule, which may or may not be an atom. Second, they have a plane of symmetry, which divides the molecule into mirror-image segments. Third, they have axes of symmetry, which can be represented by lines passing through the center of symmetry. If the molecule is rotated, it will have the same position in space more than once in a complete 360 turn.
  • [0043]
    As used herein, the term “unbranched” means that the symmetric diisocyanate does not contain any subordinate chains of one or more carbon atoms.

    Dynamic Contact Angle Measurement
  • [0087]
    A test solution, emulsion, or suspension (typically at about 3% solids) was applied to nylon 66 film (available from DuPont) by dip-coating strips of the film. Prior to coating, the film was cleaned with methyl alcohol. Using a small binder clip to hold one end of the nylon film, the strip was immersed in the test solution, and then withdrawn slowly and smoothly from the solution. The coated strip was allowed to air dry in a protected location for a minimum of 30 minutes and then was cured for 10 minutes at 150 C.
  • [0088]
    Advancing and receding contact angles on the coated film were measured using a CAHN Dynamic Contact Angle Analyzer, Model DCA 322 (a Wilhelmy balance apparatus equipped with a computer for control and data processing, commercially available from ATI, Madison, Wis.). Water and hexadecane were used as probe liquids. Values for both water and hexadecane are reported.

  • Example 20 Preparation of MeFBSE-MDI/Boltron H50
  • [0125]
    A 125 ml bottle was charged with MeFBSE-MDI (6.0 g, Boltron H50 (1.50 g; previously dried under vacuum), one drop DBTDL, and THF (20 mL; anhydrous tetrahydrofuran). The bottle was heated at 40-60 C. for 1 hr, cooled, and found to contain no isocyanate by FT-IR. Another 0.5 g MeFBSE-MDI was added, the mixture was heated briefly and left overnight.
  • Examples 21 & 22 MeFBSE-MDI/PVA-17K
  • [0126]
    PVA-17K (1.80 g) was added to 60 mL NMP at 118 C. and stirred until dissolved, then vacuum was applied, removing approximately 10 mL of NMP. The resulting residue (50.8 g) was divided into two equal portions in dry 125 mL bottles and treated with the amounts of MeFBSE-MDI indicated in the chart for Example 21 and Example 22, 1 drop DBTDL, and heated as Example 20. The products were treated with 80 mL water, collected by filtration and dissolved in THF for testing.
  • Example 23 MeFBSE-MDI/IOA/HEA/“ELVACITE 1010”
  • [0127]
    A quart pressure bottle was charged with IOA (123.5 g), HEA (84.5 g), “ELVACITE 1010” (8.7 g; polymethylmethacylate macromonomer; available from Dupont, Wilmington, Del.), 0.43 g “VAZO 67” (0.43 g), EtOAc (277 g), and isopropanol (10 g), purged with nitrogen for 2 minutes and kept 24 hr at 60 C. in a rotating water bath. The procedure described in Example 20 was essentially followed with the exception that 2.5 g of the resulting 40% solution was evaporated to dryness and then redissolved in 10 mL NMP with 3.0 g MeFBSE-MDI.
  • Example 24 Reaction of MeFBSE-MDI with NH2(CH2CH2NH)5H
  • [0128]
    A 4 oz bottle was charged with NH2(CH2CH2NH)5H (1.16 g; 5 mmole), MeFBSE-MDI (5.0 g; 8.24 mmole) and toluene (40 g) and heated at 70 C. for 5 hrs. FT-IR Analysis indicated no —NCO remained.
  • Example 25 MeFBSE/TPEG 730
  • [0129]
    The procedure described for Example 20 was essentially followed with the exception that TPEG 730 (2.43 g) was substituted for Boltron H50 and 6.35 g of MeFBSE-MDI was used.
  • Example 26 MeFBSE-MDI/SD 890
  • [0130]
    The procedure described for Example 20 was essentially followed with the exception that SD 890 (0.90 g) was substituted for Boltron H50 and 1.22 g of MeFBSE-MDI was used.
  • Example 27 MeFBSE-MDI/MA/HEA
  • [0131]
    A 125 mL bottle was charged with MA (7.0 g methyl acrylate), HEA (3.0 g), tert-dodecylmercaptan (0.10 g), “VAZO 67” (30 mg), isopropanol (15 g), and EtOAc (15 g), purged for 40 sec with nitrogen, and kept in a rotating water bath at 60 C for 24 hours. 5.0 g of the resulting polymer solution was evaporated to dryness and then dissolved in 20 mL dry THF and treated with 4.3 g MeFBSE-MDI and 1 drop DBTDL and heated at 55 C. for 20 hr.
  • Example 28 MeFBSE-MDI/ODA/HEA
  • [0132]
    A 125 mL bottle was charged with ODA (7.6 g), HEA (2.6 g), tert-dodecylmercaptan (0.10 g), “VAZO 67” (30 mg), isopropanol (15 g), and EtOAc (15 g), purged for 40 sec with nitrogen, and kept in a rotating water bath at 60 C. for 24 hours. 5.0 g of the resulting polymer solution was evaporated to dryness and then dissolved in 20 mL dry THF and treated with 2.2 g MeFBSE-MDI and 1 drop DBTDL and heated at 55 C for 20 hr.
  • Example 29 MeFBSE-MDI/Polyglycidol
  • [0133]
    A solution of 5.0 g glycidol (available from Aldrich) in 100 mL CH2Cl2 was treated with 35 mg (CF3SO2)2CH2 (35 mg in about 2 mL CH2Cl2; available from 3M, St Paul). The mixture was allowed to stand overnight at room temperature, forming an oily precipitate. The solvent was stripped using a rotary evaporator, leaving a sticky resin (4.7 g). NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) spectroscopy indicated a mixture of primary (linear polymer) and secondary (branched polymer) alcohols. 4.25 g of the resin was dissolved in THF (27.8 g; slight solubility) and NMP (20 g). 5.0 g of this was reacted with 3.3 g MeFBSE-MDI as in Example 20.
