The data on samples SPU-2 and SPU-5 show that the surface-free energy of SPU coat with phthalic anhydride was greater than the sample with adipic acid, which may have occurred for two reasons: (1) sample SPU-2 had higher silicone content than sample SPU-5; (2) the benzene ring in the phthalic anhydride molecule weakened the facility of the whole system and consequently limited the transferring towards the surface of silicone segments.
