  • Publication number: 20070012630
    Abstract: Amine-aldehyde resins are disclosed for removing a wide variety of solids and/or ionic species from the liquids in which they are suspended and/or dissolved. These resins are especially useful as froth flotation depressants, for example in the beneficiation of value materials (e.g., bitumen, coal, or kaolin clay) to remove impurities such as sand. The resins are also useful for treating aqueous liquid suspensions to remove solid particulates, as well as for removing metallic ions in the purification of water.

  • Publication number: 20070000839
    Abstract: Modified resins are disclosed for removing a wide variety of solids and/or ionic species from the liquids in which they are suspended and/or dissolved. These modified resins are especially useful as froth flotation depressants in the beneficiation of many types of materials (e.g., mineral and metal ores), including the beneficiation of impure coal comprising clay impurities, as well as in the separation of valuable bitumen from solid contaminants such as sand. The modified resins are also useful for treating aqueous liquid suspensions to facilitate the removal of solid particulates, as well as the removal of metallic ions in the purification of water. The modified resins comprise a base resin that is modified with a coupling agent, which is highly selective for binding to solid contaminants and especially siliceous materials such as sand or clay.

  • Publication number: 20060270809
    Abstract: Stable dispersions of phenolic resins, particularly bisphenol-A/formaldehyde resins, for use in e.g., baking enamels, coatings, adhesives, binders, etc., are disclosed. The dispersions have low levels (e.g., <0.1% by weight) of free aldehyde, thereby reducing environmental harms associated with aldehyde emissions. Low free aldehyde levels are achieved using melamine as an aldehyde scavenger during preparation. It has now been discovered that melamine, in contrast to other scavengers of aldehydes, does not adversely affect dispersion stability, interfere with later processing operations, or negatively impact the final resin product quality (e.g., after curing).

  • Publication number: 20060265999
    Abstract: Mold- and moisture-resistant gypsum boards and methods for making them are disclosed. The boards comprise a gypsum core overlayed with facing sheets (e.g., multi-ply paper). One or preferably both of these sheets is impregnated with a thermoset resin (e.g., a phenol-formaldehyde resin) in an amount effective to (i) allow water vapor passage through the facing sheet when the thermoset resin is in its uncured state and (ii) provide mold and moisture resistance to the facing sheet when the thermoset resin is in its cured state. Advantageously, the method of manufacturing such gypsum boards requires little or no modification of existing manufacturing lines, due to the ability of the thermoset resin to cure during the normal gypsum core drying process, without significantly interfering with this process.

  • Publication number: 20060240139
    Abstract: A method of forming a composite panel includes the steps of supplying a material to a forming station, supplying a dry additive to the material at the forming station, producing a mat comprising the material and the additive, and applying heat and pressure to the mat to produce a composite panel. An apparatus for forming a composite panel includes a reservoir of raw material and at least one forming station configured to form a mat of the raw material. A dry material dispensing assembly introduces an additive to the forming station, and press applies heat and pressure to transform the mat into a panel.

  • Publication number: 20060229415
    Abstract: Storage stable aqueous dispersions of a heat-reactive hydrophilic phenolic resin (e.g., phenol/formaldehyde) are disclosed. The dispersions comprise a base resin that is the reaction product of an aromatic alcohol and an aldehyde, and an etherified resin component selected from the group consisting of an etherified phenol/aldehyde resin, an etherified cresol/aldehyde resin, and mixtures thereof. The dispersions further comprise a protective colloid (e.g., polyvinyl alcohol). The addition of the etherified resin component in an amount of at least about 20% by weight of the base resin provides storage stability, but does not adversely affect the desirable physical and chemical characteristics (e.g., chemical resistance) of end products made from such dispersions. Moreover, the dispersions of the present invention can avoid the use of etherified resin components derived from bisphenol-A and/or xylenols, which present heath concerns in food coating applications.
