Urethane-acrylic copolymers have found increasing use as a radiation curable materials in the
recent years. These copolymers are highly crosslinked through the use of acrylic monomers
having more than one double bond. Stirling Lloyd had discovered such materials to be a
successful alternative to the urethane or acrylics coatings as waterproof membrane coatings. In
this project, structure-property relationships of UA copolymer systems were studied. These
were peroxide cured at room temperature. [Continues.]
