In this paper, polyvinyl butyral (PVB) coatings with different nanosilica contents (0- 1.5 weight percent (wt%) were prepared for improving properties such as mechanical properties, corrosion protection, thermal oxidation stability of coating. Presence of nanosilica in coating was characterized by FT-IR. Corrosion resistance of PVB coatings containing nanosilica was investigated by salt mist testing. Effects of nanosilica on adhesion, flexural strength and relative hardness and thermal oxidation stability of PVB coatings were also examined. Nanosilica with content of 1.2 wt% significantly improved mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and thermal oxidation stability of PVB coatings.
