A nano-composite coating was developed by adding nano-SiO2 to a home-made Waterborne fluorine-containing epoxy resin. The surface hydrophlicity of the coating was investigated by the contact angle with water. As the particle sizes of SiO2 changed from 7-18nm, the water contact angle of the films changed from 62.8° to 85.6°. The surface energy of the coating was calculated out through measuring the contact angles of the coating with water and 1-bromonaphthalene. The presence of SiO2 significantly enhanced the corrosion resistance of the composite coatings, which showed two times than that of the neat waterborne fluorine-containing epoxy coatings. And the thermos dynamic stability of the composite coatings has been significantly improved. When the silica content is 2.0%, the coating has the largest contact angle. Other performance of the coating was investigated in terms of their thickness, flexibility, pencil hardness, impact resistance.
