Exploratory copolymerizations of l,l-dihydroperfluorobutyl acrylate with various other monomers selected from such general classes as 1,3 dienes, unsaturated acids, acrylamides, haloacrylates, vinyl alkyl ethers, vinyl silanes and allyl esters of unsaturated acids are described. Preliminary compounding recipes and evaluation data are presented for those systems which appeared to be of definite interest in connection with the development of specialty elastomers for Air Force applications. Attempts to prepare a copolymer possessing a balance of properties superior to that which exists in poly l,l-dihydroperfluorobutyl acrylate were unsuccessful. However1 considerable information was obtained regarding the behavior of l,l-dihydroperfluorobutyl acrylate in copolymerization reactions and the search for potentially valuable polymers based on this important new monomer was extended to include preliminary investigation of many copolymer compositions not previously studied.
