  • Patent number: 10899870
    Abstract: The thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) compositions described herein have a very good snap back properties (also called rebound resilience) while still maintaining a good combination of other properties, including hardness, low-temperature flexibility, abrasion resistance, weather-ability, low density, or any combination thereof. This combination of properties make the TPU compositions described herein useful materials for applications where polyamide copolymers (COPA) and/or polyether block amide (PEBA) materials have traditionally been used over TPU.

  • Publication number: 20200140683
    Abstract: Polymers are disclosed that incorporate portions of secondary or tertiary polyamide segments connected with polyisocyanates. These polymers have enhanced matting properties. The enhanced matting properties are from creating an inherently matt surface from the polymer without the use of any separate fine particle size matting additives. Conventional matting agents such as fine particle size silica usually results in loss of physical properties such as haze development and porosity in the coating from the matting agent. Composites and hybrids of these polymers and other polyamides, polyurethane with vinyl polymers (acrylates) are also disclosed and claimed.
