In the present work boron acrylate monomer was synthesized by esterification reaction. UV-curable boron containing epoxy acrylate coatings were prepared and applied on plexiglass substrates to obtain thermally and mechanically stable coatings. The physical and mechanical properties of UV-cured coatings were investigated such as gel content, solvent resistance, hardness, flexibility and tensile tests. The thermal behavior of coatings was also evaluated. It was observed that the tensile properties and thermal stabilities of boron modified epoxy coatings mainly depend on the boron content.
