  • Publication number: 20080045629
    Abstract: The present invention is a method for efficiently incorporating a nitrogen containing methine light absorber into a polyester resin. The method includes forming a reaction mixture comprising combining a diol component, a diacid component selected from the group consisting of dicarboxylic acids, dicarboxylic acid derivatives, and mixtures thereof, an antimony containing compound, a phosphorus containing compound, a metal containing compound, and a nitrogen containing methine light absorber. The reaction mixture is polymerized in a polycondensation reaction system. In another embodiment the light absorber is added while the reaction products of one reactor are being transferred to the next reactor in the polycondensation reaction system.

  • Publication number: 20070207331
    Abstract: Disclosed are azo colorant compounds containing one or more ethylenically-unsaturated groups polymerizable or copolymerizable with ethylenically-unsaturated compositions typically used in coating compositions. The azo colorantcompounds are polymerizable by photopolymerization or free radical polymerization techniques with ethylenically-unsaturated monomers. The copolymerized colorants produce colored compositions such as colored acrylic polymers, e.g., polymers produced from acrylate and methacrylate esters, colored polystyrenes, and similar colored polymeric materials derived from other ethylenically-unsaturated monomers. The ethylenically-unsaturated colorant compounds may be used in coatings that are applied to wood, glass, metal, thermoplastics and the like.
