  • Publication number: 20200283619
    Abstract: An electronic device is described comprising an enclosure, wherein the enclosure comprises a cured epoxy resin composition comprising at least 50 volume % of electrically non-conductive thermally conductive inorganic particles, wherein the inorganic particles are selected from alumina, boron nitride, silicon carbide, alumina trihydrate and mixtures thereof. The enclosure may be a housing of a phone, laptop, or mouse. Alternatively, the enclosure maybe a case for an electronic device. Also described are epoxy resin compositions and a method of making an enclosure for an electronic device.

  • Publication number: 20200140722
    Abstract: Provided are curable compositions that include an epoxy resin; a 9,9-bis(aminophenyl)fluorene or derivative therefrom; and core shell particles, each comprising an elastomeric core and a polymeric outer shell layer coated on the elastomeric core. The core shell particles can be at least partially aggregated with each other, include polymeric intermediate layers between the core and outer shell layers, and/or have a multimodal particle diameter distribution. The curable compositions may also optionally include inorganic sub-micron particles dispersed in the curable composition, the inorganic sub-micron particles having surface-bonded organic groups that compatibilize the inorganic sub-micron particles and the epoxy resin.

  • Patent number: 10434493
    Abstract: Metal-containing sorbent materials are provided, methods of making the metal-containing sorbent materials, methods of using the metal-containing sorbent materials, and metal complex-containing composite materials resulting from the sorption of basic, nitrogen-containing compounds on the metal-containing sorbent materials are provided. The sorbent materials are prepared by incorporating divalent metals into a precursor material that is formed by treating a porous siliceous material having mesopores with a silane or disilazane surface treatment agent. The metal-containing sorbent materials can be used to capture basic, nitrogen-containing compounds having a molecular weight no greater than 150 grams/mole.

  • Patent number: 9415575
    Abstract: A laminate material may include a first flexible layer, and a self-healing composite layer in contact with the first flexible layer. The composite layer includes an elastomer matrix, a plurality of first capsules including a polymerizer, and a corresponding activator for the polymerizer. The laminate material may self-heal when subjected to a puncture or a tear.
