  • Patent number: 7148300
    Abstract: A compound is prepared, suitable for forming fluoroelastomers, having the unique features of a low glass transition temperature and desirable permeation resistance. The compound generally comprises two primary components. The first component is an amorphous copolymer including interpolymerized units derived from one or more perfluorinated ethers. The second component is a curable component including at least one filler having at least 10 parts per 100 parts of the first component. Upon vulcanization the resulting elastomeric compound has desirable physical characteristics as indicated by the durometer, the retraction at lower temperatures (TR-10) and permeation resistance.

  • Patent number: 6861141
    Abstract: A pavement marking article that has an adhesive composition for adhering the article to a pavement substrate, where the adhesive composition includes a reaction product of an acrylic acid ester of a monohydric alcohol whose homopolymer has a Tg less than 0° C., a non-polar ethylenically unsaturated monomer, and 0-10 parts by weight of a polar ethylenically unsaturated monomer. Preferably the amount of the acrylic acid ester is about 60-90 parts by weight, and the amount of the non-polar ethylenically unsaturated monomer is about 10-40 parts by weight. Also, a raised pavement marker that comprises: (a) a pavement marker body having upper and lower surfaces and an apparent flexural modulus of at least about 50,000 psi and (b) a pressure sensitive adhesive layer disposed upon the lower surface of the marker, wherein the adhesive has: (i) a transition region that begins at a frequency of about 10,000 radians/s or more and extends to a frequency of about 100 radians/s or less at about 25° C.
