  • Patent number: 9556345
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to the use of compounds of specific structure as defoaming wetting agents for aqueous coating systems, for example paints and varnishes. The disclosure is more particularly related to methods of reducing the surface tension and/or increasing the density of an aqueous coating system, which methods include adding alcohol propoxylates to an aqueous coating system. The alcohol propoxylates have the general structure R—O—(PO)xH, in which R is a saturated alkyl radical having 7 to 10 C atoms, PO is a propylene oxide unit, and x is a number in the range from 4 to 6. The resulting aqueous coating composition has good wetting properties, but is low in foam, so it does not disrupt processing operations of the coating system.

  • Patent number: 9371500
    Abstract: Provided are lubricants containing a synthetic ester, one or more additional base stocks and an additive package along with methods of making and using the same. Lubricant compositions comprise a synthetic ester that is a reaction product of at least one hindered organic polyol with one or more carboxylic acid where at least some (20%) up to 100% of the acids are branched. The lubricant compositions can provide improved oxidation stability and extended service life, as compared to a lubricant whose ester component is the reaction product of one or more hindered organic polyols and one or more carboxylic acids that are all linear, in applications that involve exposure to air, moisture, and/or high temperatures. These lubricant compositions are suited to a variety of lubricant applications, including, but not limited to air compressors, gear boxes, bearing sets, hydraulic systems, and chain drives.
