Abstract: A styrene-butadiene copolymer having excellent low hysteresis loss characteristic, wet skid resistance, fracture characteristics, and abrasion resistance and a rubber composition comprising the copolymer are disclosed. The styrene-butadiene copolymer has a total styrene content in the range of 33 to 42% by weight of the styrene-butadiene copolymer; a content of styrene sequences having 4 to 20 styrene units in the range of 40 to 65% by weight of the total styrene content, as obtained by measurements by NMR and GPC; a content of styrene sequences having more than 20 styrene units in the range of 5% by weight or less of the total styrene content, as obtained by measurement by GPC; a content of vinyl unit in the range of 30% by mol or less of a butadiene part of the styrene-butadiene copolymer; a sum of the total styrene value and ½ of the content of vinyl units in the range of 46 to 52%; and an inner or end structure having, for example tin-carbon bond.
Abstract: A rubber composition comprises a polar group-containing diene polymer synthesized through an emulsion polymerization as a rubber component, and an inorganic filler represented by a formula of mM.xSiOy.zH2O wherein M is a metal selected from the group consisting of aluminum, magnesium, titanium and calcium, an oxide or a hydroxide of such a metal or an hydrate thereof, m is an integer of 1 to 5, x is an integer of 0 to 10, y is an integer of 2 to 5 and z is an integer of 0 to 10.
Abstract: A lubricant composition for a surface treatment of a steel filament comprises at least one specified compound as a lubricant component and a rubber-steel filament composite body is prepared by using a steel filament treated with the lubricant composition.
Abstract: The object of the present invention is to provide a modified diene polymer capable of creating good reinforcing characteristics and filler dispersing effect independently of the kinds of the filler as well as a process for making the polymer and to provide a rubber composition having good fracture characteristics, wear resistance, and low exothermicity without the impairment of wet performance.
Abstract: A nontoxic anticorrosive pigment composition free from toxic heavy metals comprises a condensed phosphoric acid aluminum salt, typically aluminum dihydrogen tripolyphosphate, and magnesium silicate, typically magnesium hexasilicate. The anticorrosive pigment composition enhances the thermal resistance of paint films when formulated in a coating composition containing a chlorine-containing vinyl polymer such as vinyl chloride-vinylidene chloride copolymer emulsion paints.
Abstract: The disclosure describes a rust-preventive composition comprising a layered phosphate whose active hydrogen is reacted with ammonia in an amount of 20 to 80 mol % based on the total amount of hydrogen of the layered phosphate, and an amphoteric or basic oxide, a ratio by weight of the layered phosphate to the amphoteric or basic oxide being 10:1 to 1:10.
