  • Publication number: 20200255682
    Abstract: An ink jet method uses a liquid jet head that includes a nozzle for discharging a radiation-curable ink jet composition, a pressure chamber to which the radiation-curable ink jet composition is supplied, and a circulation flow passage allowing the radiation-curable ink jet composition in the pressure chamber to circulate. The method includes discharging the heated radiation-curable ink jet composition by the liquid jet head. The radiation-curable ink jet composition includes a polymerizable compound component including a monofunctional monomer component and a multifunctional monomer component; the content of the monofunctional monomer component is 87 mass % or more based on the total amount of the polymerizable compound component; the weighted average of the glass transition temperatures of homopolymers of the respective polymerizable compounds is 42° C. or more when the mass ratios of the contents of the respective polymerizable compounds are weighted; and the viscosity at 40° C. is 10 mPa·s or more.

  • Patent number: 10227454
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are a phenyl-modified hybrid prepolymer, a phenyl-modified polydimethylsiloxane-based hybrid prepolymer, and a phenyl-modified polydimethylsiloxane-based hybrid polymer capable of controlling material hardness or surface tackiness depending on the intended use or purpose. A phenyl-modified hybrid prepolymer (B) is prepared by subjecting polydimethylsiloxane having trialkoxysilyl groups at both ends, phenyltrialkoxysilane, and diphenyldialkoxysilane to hydrolysis and condensation reaction. A phenyl-modified polydimethylsiloxane-based hybrid prepolymer (C) comprises (B), and is preferably prepared by mixing (B) and a phenyl-modified hybrid prepolymer (A) prepared by condensation reaction between polydimethylsiloxane having silanol groups at both ends and phenyltrialkoxysilane. The phenyl-modified polydimethylsiloxane-based hybrid polymer is obtained by heating and solidifying (C).
