Scientists recently dealt with the fabrication and properties of polysilsesquioxane-based trilayer core-shell structure latex coatings with fluorinated polyacrylate and silica nanocomposite as the shell layer. Results indicated that the hybrid film containing SiO 2 NPs showed higher hydrophobicity, lower surface free energy and water absorption. Li, Jiawei et al., Journal of Coatings Technology and Research, 2018, Vol. 15, Issue 5, pp. 1077-1088. 61 % of water-borne coatings are used in the architectural industry. ...
