Abstract : The invention relates to epoxy resins and urethanes useful as coatings, adhesives and laminates. The polymers are highly hydrophobic and can be used as coatings for automobiles which will greatly reduce the need for waxing. Fluorinated polymers are produced by reacting one or more fluorinated diols with epichlorohydrin and NaOH. By this process copolymers of the polyol type and the epoxy-terminated type are obtained. These copolymers are formed into paints by the addition of pigments, extenders and/or fillers. Highly hydrophobic paints are produced by using fluoropolymers as extenders.
