  • Patent number: 10676574
    Abstract: The general field of the invention is that of silicone coating compositions, in particular those of two-component or multi-component type, that can be crosslinked by polyaddition or hydrosilylation reactions to produce a support coated by a silicone elastomer as a thin layer. These silicone compositions, when they are crosslinked, are suitable, inter alia, as coatings, for example for the protection or mechanical reinforcement of various textile substrates such as for example fibrous, woven, knitted or nonwoven supports. The targeted objective is to provide a silicone elastomer coating composition that can be crosslinked by polyaddition reactions and that is useful in particular for applications in the field of inflatable safety bags for vehicles, or airbags, having, after crosslinking, optimum properties in terms of adhesion, thinness, lightness and crease and abrasion resistance, but also good mechanical properties. This silicone coating composition should also be easy to use and to apply.

  • Patent number: 10669374
    Abstract: A method is provided which reduces the transition time and/or the polymer waste in a continuous polymerization plant and/or process having a back-mixing reactor when polymer grades are changed from a first polymer grade to a second polymer grade. A monomer(s) and processing agent(s) are introduced to the reactor. The concentration of the processing agent(s) in a feed stream to the reactor is varied as a function of time from a first value associated with the first polymer grade to a final value associated with the second polymer grade. During the concentration variation one or more intermediate values of processing agent concentration are adjusted between at a first value, an intermediate value(s), and a final value. The intermediate values may be maintained for a time which is calculated on the basis of only residence time and steady-state correlations between input and output of the reactor and/or of the polymerization plant. The method is performed without performing dynamic modelling.
