  • Patent number: 10899865
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a resin blend containing a blend of a first phthalonitrile resin, a filler, and a bisphenol M diphthalonitrile ether resin. Suitable fillers include at least one of nanoparticles, microparticles, or fibers. The present disclosure also provides an article including a polymerization product of such a resin blend. The resin blends can be prepared at lower temperatures than phthalonitrile resin blends without a bisphenol M diphthalonitrile ether resin.

  • Publication number: 20190382579
    Abstract: A method of making a resin composition is described comprising providing a mixture of boron nitride particles and cellulose nanocrystals and combining the mixture with a resin composition. The weight ratio of boron nitride to cellulose nanocrystals typically ranges from 99.9:0.1 to 90:10. The resin composition can have a viscosity at least a 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25% lower than the same composition without the cellulose nanocrystals, which facilitate processing efficiency and is also amenable to incorporating higher boron nitride concentrations into the resin composition. Also described is a (e.g. powder) composition comprising premixed boron nitride particles and cellulose nanocrystals and resin composition comprising such (e.g. powder) composition.
