  • Publication number: 20220145147
    Abstract: An adhesive composition for use in flooring applications that includes a moisture curable polymer system; a calcium carbonate filler system having a first spheroidal particle of calcium carbonate having an equivalent spherical mean diameter of 70 nanometer (nm) to 15 micrometer (?m) and a second spheroidal particle of calcium carbonate having an equivalent spherical mean diameter of greater than 15 ?m to 200 ?m; a seed oil based fatty acid ester; and a silane based adhesion promoter. The adhesive composition provides low viscosity along with high shear resistance, which helps to retain the troweled ridges to enable maximum coverage.

  • Patent number: 10844218
    Abstract: Moisture-curable resin compositions include a mixture of one or more polysilylated of ethers and one or more polyether monosilanes. The polyether monosilanes have one hydrolysable silane group per molecule, and the hydrolysable silane group has at least two hydrolysable substituents. The polyether monosilane is an effective plasticizer and viscosity reducer. Despite the presence of the polyether monosilane, the resins compositions cure to form cured sealants having useful tensile and elongation properties.

  • Publication number: 20180244828
    Abstract: Moisture-curable polysilylated polyether compositions contain titanium (IV) catalysts and/or zinc/amidine catalyst mixtures and are devoid of or nearly devoid of tin compounds. The titanium catalysts and zinc/amide catalyst mixtures are surprisingly found to be highly effective, even when the moisture-curable silane groups of the compositions are dialkoxysilyl groups. The moisture-cured compositions are surprisingly stable when aged at high temperatures. In addition, the compositions are surprisingly storage-stable in the uncured state, particularly when the polysilylated polyethers contain aliphatic urethane groups. The polyether compositions are also preferably devoid of aminosilane adhesion promoters.

  • Publication number: 20160304662
    Abstract: Polymers are prepared from a reaction mixture that contains a polyene compound, an epoxy resin, a mixture of a thiol curing agent and an amine curing agent, and a basic catalyst. The polyene compound has an average of at least two groups containing aliphatic carbon-carbon double bonds capable of reaction with a thiol group. At least one of said aliphatic carbon-carbon double bonds is separated from each other said aliphatic carbon-carbon double bond by an aliphatic spacer group having a weight of at least 500 atomic mass units. These polymers are typically phase-separated materials having good elongation and tensile properties.
