The use of aqueous polymer dispersions of butyl acrylate-methyl-acrylate-methacrylic acid and polyvinyl acetate for purifying the surface of tiles of the 18th and 19th centuries, fragments of carved stone blocks of window frames XVII, bricks of the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, and plaster brackets of the late nineteenth century, tiled tiles from the facade of the building of the city of Lviv, the areas of the surface of the Boim's chapel in Lviv, metal plates of models of coriand and stucco decor from the main building of the National University of Lviv Polytechnic.

Cross-linking of Epoxy-Oligoesteric Mixtures in the Presence of Fluorine-Containing Epoxy Resins

Cross-linking of epoxy-oligomeric mixtures based on ED-20 industrial epoxy dianic resin and TGM-3 oligoesteracrylate in the presence of fluorine-containing peroxy oligomers has been studied. Oligomers used for the cross-linking have been obtained via chemical modification of peroxy derivative of ED-24 epoxy resin with alcohols-telomers by general formula HOCH2–(CF2–CF2)nH, where n is 3 or 4. The thermal stability of peroxy groups in the initial material, fluorine-containing peroxy oligomers and stability of cross-linked films have been examined using derivatographic methods.

Phenol-Formaldehyde Resins of Novolac Type with Unsaturated Side Bonds

The reaction between novolac phenol-formaldehyde resin and glycidylmethacrylate has been studied in the presence of potassium hydroxide and the synthesis procedure of phenol-formaldehyde resin with unsaturated side bonds has been suggested. The effective rates and activation energy of the mentioned reaction have been calculated. The structure of synthesized resin was confirmed by IR-spectroscopy. The synthesized resin may be used as active component of polymeric blends based on ED-20 industrial epoxy resin, its peroxy derivative (PO) and TGM-3 oligoesteracrylate.

Chemical Modification of ED-24 Epoxy Resin by Adipic Acid

The possibility of epoxy resin carboxy-containing derivative (CDER) obtaining has been studied on the basis of dianic epoxy resin ED-24 and adipic acid (AA). The synthesized CDER contains epoxy and carboxy groups at the same time. Used catalysts were benzyltriethylammonium chloride (BTEACh); 1,4-diazobicyclo[2,2,2]octane; N,N-dimethylaminopyridine; 18-Crown-6, potassium hydroxide, triethylamine and 18-Crown-6+ZnCl2 catalytic system. The effect of the catalyst nature and amount, reagents ratio, process temperature and time on the reaction proceeding between ED-24 and AA has been determined.
