  • Publication number: 20210261818
    Abstract: A curable coating composition is provided having multi-functionalized acrylic copolymer and silicone imine resin curing agents. The acrylic copolymer of the curable coating composition has, in polymerized form, epoxy functionalized groups and cure compatibility groups and the silicone imine forms an amino-functional silicone in the presence of water. The coating compositions are useful in the field of superior weatherable and durable coatings and are useful to replace isocyanate-containing polyurethane based coatings. Also provided are coated articles produced from the curable composition.

Each of R1-R10 is independently a hydrocarbon group so long as at least one of R1-R5 is an alkenyl group and at least one of R6-R10 is a hydrogen atom. The first linear organopolysiloxane has a DP of from 100 to 15,000. The second linear organopolysiloxane has a DP of from 4 to 1,000. The composition also includes a silicone elastomer different from the hydrosilylation reaction product. Personal care compositions can include the composition.

  • Publication number: 20180064630
    Abstract: A fluid composition comprises A) a branched organopolysiloxane and B) a carrier fluid. Component A) comprises the reaction product of a) a cyclic siloxane and b) a polyorganosiloxane, in the presence of a hydrosilylation catalyst. Component a) has at least two silicon-bonded alkenyl groups per molecule, and component b) has at least two silicon-bonded hydrogen atoms per molecule. The fluid composition has a viscosity of at least 100 mPa·s at 23° C. and exhibits pituitous rheological properties. The pituitous rheological properties are generally determined from a plot of normal force (in Pascals) vs a perpendicular shear rate in (sec?1). Also disclosed is a personal care composition that comprises the fluid composition. When formulated into a personal care composition, the fluid composition generally provides enhanced sensory and film-forming properties based on its pituitous rheological properties.
