  • Patent number: 6255398
    Abstract: The invention provides thermosetting coating compositions in which acrylic copolymers are used as carriers for fluorocarbon resins. The compositions have a combination of high fluorocarbon content, high solids content, and a low viscosity suitable for coil coating. Thus, the solids are borne in organic solvent systems which permit minimization of the viscosity and a moderate evaporation rate. The solvent system has a &dgr;H of from 1.7 to 2.6 (calories/cubic centimeter)½ and a &dgr;V of from 8 to 9.5 (calories/cubic centimeter)½ and is exemplified by a mixture of 4 or more of the following solvents: aliphatic ketones having from 4 to 10 carbon atoms, alkyl esters having a total of from 5 to 7 carbon atoms, aromatic acid esters having from 8 to 12 carbon atoms, lactones, and aromatic solvents.

  • Patent number: 5852162
    Abstract: A polyester composition has a number average molecular weight M.sub.n of between about 500 and about 1000, a weight average molecular weight M.sub.w of between about 600 and about 2000, a polydispersity below about 2, preferably below about 1.8, hydroxyl functionality between 2 and 3, a hydroxyl value of between about 160 and about 260, and an acid number below about 10. Less than about 5% of the OH groups of the polyester are pendent, the rest being terminal. Between about 10 and about 50 wt % of the monomers used to form the polyester composition are anhydrides having the formula: ##STR1## where R.sup.1 is a non-aromatic, saturated or unsaturated hydrocarbon chain having between 6 and 30 carbon atoms, R.sup.2 is hydrogen or a non-aromatic saturated or unsaturated hydrocarbon having between 1 and 8 carbon atoms, and R.sup.1 and R.sup.2 have, in total, between 8 and 30 carbon atoms.

  • Patent number: 5534565
    Abstract: Epoxy resin compositions used in preparation of laminates for electronic applications are free of the solvents typically needed in current industrial practice. The use of certain mono-substituted dicyandiamides makes possible the elimination of such solvents since all of the components are soluble in epoxy resin to an extent which provides uniform properties in the cured laminates.
