  • Publication number: 20220002579
    Abstract: This invention relates to aliphatic, carbamate-functional polyester resins for use in coatings. More particularly this invention relates to aliphatic, carbamate-functional polyester resins containing 2,2,4,4-tetramethyl-1,3-cyclobutanediol (TMCD) that exhibit improved scratch resistance and acid etch resistance when formulated into 2K automotive clearcoats. These carbamate-functional polyesters can be used as the sole resin in the clearcoat binder or in combination with other carbamate-functional acrylic resins and/or hydroxyl-functional acrylic and polyester resins.

  • Publication number: 20210380835
    Abstract: This invention relates to a carbamate functional thermosetting coating with a composition comprised of a carba-mate-functional acrylic and/or polyester polyol and an alkylated melamine-formaldehyde cross linker modified by an aliphatic polyester and an alkylated melamine. The polyester polyol is made of monomers including a 2,4,4-tetraalkylcyclobutane-1,3-diol and an aliphatic diacid. These polyester polyols can be used in blends with hydroxyl-functional or carbamate-functional acrylic resins or serve as the primary film former in a coating formulation.

  • Patent number: 9040619
    Abstract: A 1,3-diketoamide functional monomer represented by the following formula (1): wherein R and Y are independently selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, an alkyl group having from 1 to 10 carbon atoms, an aryl group having from 6 to 20 carbon atoms, and an aralkyl group having from 7 to 20 carbon atoms; and wherein X and Z are independently selected from the group consisting of an alkyl group having from 1 to 10 carbon atoms, an aryl group having from 6 to 20 carbon atoms, and an aralkyl group having from 7 to 20 carbon atoms. Also disclosed are emulsion, suspension, and solution polymers comprising residues from the 1,3-diketoamide functional monomer of formula 1 and, optionally, one or more additional ethylenically unsaturated monomers. Both latex and self-curing coating compositions described herein exhibit excellent hydrolytic stability, including increased retention of 1,3-diketo functionality.
