  • Patent number: 11007711
    Abstract: A process for manufacturing an object involves the steps of: I) depositing a radically cross-linked resin on a carrier so that a layer of a structuring material joined to the carrier is obtained, said layer corresponding to a first selected cross-section of the object; II) depositing a radically cross-linked resin on a previously applied layer of the structuring material so that an additional layer of the structuring material is obtained which corresponds to a further selected cross-section of the object and which is joined to the previously applied layer; III) repeating step II) until the object is formed, wherein the deposition of a radically cross-linked resin in steps I) and II) includes the application of a radically cross-linkable resin to the carrier or the previously applied layer and is performed at least in step II) by applying energy to a selected region of a radically cross-linkable resin, corresponding to the selected cross-section of the object, the radically cross-linkable resin having a viscos

  • Publication number: 20210054125
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing an object from a precursor, comprising the steps: I) depositing a radically cross-linked resin on a carrier so that a layer of a construction material connected to the carrier is obtained, said layer corresponding to a first selected cross-section of the precursor; II) depositing a radically cross-linked resin on a previously applied layer of the construction material so that an additional layer of the construction material is obtained, which corresponds to a further selected cross-section of the precursor and which is connected to the previously applied layer; III) repeating step II) until the precursor is formed, wherein, at least in step II), the deposition of a radically cross-linked resin is carried out by allowing energy to act on a selected region of a radically cross-linkable resin, corresponding to the respectively selected cross-section of the object, wherein the radically cross-linkable resin has a viscosity (23° C.

  • Publication number: 20200392275
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for preparing polyurethanes containing alkoxysilane groups, said method comprising the step of reacting a compound containing at least one NCO group with a compound containing at least one Zerewitinoff-active H atom in the presence of a catalyst component, the at least one compound containing an NCO group and/or the compound containing at least one Zerewitinoff-active H atom containing at least one alkoxysilane group, so as to obtain a polyurethane containing alkoxysilane groups. The invention also relates to a polymer containing alkoxysilane groups, a method for preparing a curable polymer, a curable polymer, a cured polymer, and use thereof. The polyurethanes are prepared with use of a thermally labile tin catalyst.

  • Publication number: 20200392278
    Abstract: A method for producing polyurethanes containing alkoxysilane groups comprises the step of reacting a compound containing at least one NCO group with a compound containing at least one Zerewitinoff-active H atom in the presence of a catalyst component, wherein the compound containing at least one NCO group and/or the compound containing at least one Zerewitinoff-active H atom contain at least one alkoxysilane group, to obtain a polyurethane containing alkoxysilane groups. The invention also relates to a polymer containing alkoxysilane groups, a method for producing a curable polymer, a curable polymer, a cured polymer, and the use thereof. The polymers contain a complex of a lanthanide with at least one beta-diketonate ligand, preferably Yb(acac)3, and are free from organic tin compounds.

  • Publication number: 20200353677
    Abstract: An additive manufacturing method wherein the carrier (400) is within a vessel (100), the vessel contains the free-radically crosslinkable resin (300) and a liquid (200) which is immiscible with the free-radically cross-linkable resin (300) and has a higher density than the free-radically crosslinkable resin (300), such that the free-radically crosslinkable resin (300) floats on top of the liquid (200) and, prior to each step II), the distance between the carrier (400) and the free-radically crosslinkable resin (300) is altered such that a layer of the free-radically crosslinkable resin forms above the uppermost surface (420), viewed in vertical direction, of the previously deposited layer of the construction material (600) and at least partially forms contact with this uppermost surface (420) of the previously deposited layer of the construction material (600). The free-radically crosslinkable resin (300) comprises a urethane (meth)acrylate.

  • Publication number: 20200339729
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for preparing a silane-terminated polymer by reacting a polyol A) with a diisocyanate B), an isocyanatosilane C) and an amino silane E), wherein the polyol component A) is reacted simultaneously with a mixture of at least one diisocyanate B) and one isocyanatosilane C), and the resulting product is subsequently reacted with the amino silane E) to produce the silane-terminated polymer. The method according to the invention can be used to prepare mixed silane-terminated polymers having a low viscosity.

  • Publication number: 20200255584
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing a polymer comprising the following steps: (A) depositing a radically cross-linkable resin, obtaining a radically cross-linked resin; and (B) treating the radically cross-linked resin under conditions which are sufficient to trigger a chemical reaction that is different from the radical cross-linking in the radically cross-linked resin. The radically cross-linkable resin comprises a curable component, in which there are NCO groups, olefinic C?C double bonds and epoxide groups, and the chemical reaction in the radically cross-linked resin that is different from the radical cross-linking is the reaction of NCO groups and epoxide groups to form oxazolidinone groups.

  • Publication number: 20200140707
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for producing an object in an additive manufacturing process from a precursor and comprises the following steps: I) depositing a layer of a radically cross-linkable construction material, which corresponds to a first selected cross-section of the precursor, on a carrier; II) depositing a layer of a radically cross-linkable construction material, which corresponds to a further selected cross-section of the precursor, on a previously applied layer of the radically cross-linked construction material; III) repeating step II) until the precursor is formed. The radically cross-linkable construction material comprises a thermoplastic radically cross-linkable polyurethane with a urethane group content of ?5% by weight and a photoinitiator. The radically cross-linkable construction material is also heated to a processing temperature that is greater than the melting point of the radically cross-linkable polyurethane. After step III) the precursor having a temperature of 20° C.
