  • Patent number: 7163981
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to easily provide an aqueous paint composition which is excellent in the low-temperature curability and can give a coated film that, while retaining a suitable texturability, further combines the water resistance, the marring resistance and the beef tallow staining resistance with good balance. In addition, another object of the present invention is to provide a coated article which is coated with this aqueous paint composition.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 6632865
    Abstract: The present invention provides: a production process for an aqueous coating composition including a resin emulsion, which has excellent storage stability, and besides, excellent sagging performance, adhesion and water resistance. The production process for an aqueous coating composition comprises the steps of: beforehand mixing 20 to 50 parts by weight of an aqueous acrylic resin solution with 100 parts by weight of a resin emulsion, wherein the aqueous acrylic resin solution and the resin emulsion are in a state of not including an organic solvent; and adding an organic solvent to a mixed liquid obtained by mixing the resin emulsion and the aqueous acrylic resin solution.

  • Patent number: 6613826
    Abstract: The present invention provides: a high viscosity aqueous coating composition, which can be coated onto plastic materials such as polyolefin materials by a HVLP gun, and which has excellent sagging performance and can obtain a coating film with good appearance. The aqueous coating composition comprises an acetylene diol defoamer and a silicone wetting agent in addition to a film-formable component, wherein the nonvolatile solid content of the acetylene diol defoamer is in the range of 0.25 to 1.0 weight % of the entirety of the aqueous coating composition, and the nonvolatile solid content of the silicone wetting agent is in the range of 0.75 to 2.0 weight % of the entirety of the aqueous coating composition.

  • Patent number: 6599980
    Abstract: The present invention provides: a coating composition, with which a 1-coat finish of plastic materials such as polyolefin materials can be performed, and which is aqueous and can be baked at 70° C. for 5 min. to have the following performance: high adhesion, excellent beef tallow resistance and alkaline resistance; and a coated article. The aqueous coating composition comprises: a poly(propylene chloride) resin emulsion including an poly(propylene chloride) resin which has a chlorine content of 15 to 25 weight % and a maleic anhydride moiety content of 1.0 to 5.0 weight %; an acrylic resin emulsion including an acrylic resin which is obtained by modifying the poly(propylene chloride) resin of 0 to 30 weight % and has a glass transition temperature of not lower than 90° C.; a polycarbodiimide crosslinking agent; and a resin powder. An article is coated with the above aqueous coating composition.
