2019 AUG 14 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Chemicals & Chemistry Daily Daily -- Fresh data on Life Science Research - Organic Research are presented in a new report. According to news reporting from Fuzhou, People’s Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, “Hexamethylenetetramine (HMTA) was used to modify the raw Chinese lacquer and the film was characterized by using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results show that the property of the Chinese lacquer film was improved due to the presence of HMTA.”
Funders for this research include Fujian Engineering and Research Center of New Chinese Lacquer Materials, Fujian Key Laboratory of Textile Fiber and Materials, Science and Technology Department of Fujian, Minjiang University.
The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Minjiang University, “HMTA was decomposed at the high temperature, thus amine and formaldehyde were released. Formaldehyde and urushiol was then condensed and result in the improvement on the properties of Chinese lacquer film. Compare to the unmodified lacquer film, the touch-free drying time was reduced from 130 min to 60 min, the gloss was increased, the alkali resistance was improved.”
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: “Acid resistance, hardness and distinctness of image (DOI) was almost unchanged.”
