A novel UV-absorbing and free-radical-catching fluorine–silicone acrylic resin with 2-(4-benzoyl-3-hydroxyphenoxy) ethyl acrylate (BHEA), 2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-4-piperidyl methacrylate (TMPM), dodecafluoroheptyl methacrylate (DFMA) and 3-methacryloxypropyltrimethoxysilane (MPS) as functional monomers was successfully synthesized by solution copolymerization. Based on various investigations, our characterization results for the resin and its coating indicated that the resin exhibits high UV-absorbing and free-radical-catching performances, and the hydrophobicity of the varnish coating was promoted by the actions of fluorine and silicone. In addition, the weatherability improved because of the enduring triple protection of the UV absorbent (BHEA), free-radical-catching agent (TMPM), fluorine (DFMA) and silicone (MPS). After a 1000-h aging test, the color difference (∆E) and rate of loss of gloss (∆G) of varnish coatings were 2.96% and 62%, respectively, and the impact strength and flexibility of color paint coatings were 420 N cm and 2 mm, respectively. Moreover, the chemically bonded free-radical-catching agent (TMPM) showed a more enduring performance for producing nitroxides than the simple blend.
