  • Patent number: 4769204
    Abstract: The reactive injection molding of a urethane-based resin composition according to the invention is performed by admixing the polyol compound as one of the reactants of the urethane-based resin with a specific organopolysiloxane as an internal mold release agent so that the molding process can be performed without application of an external mold release agent to the metal mold. The organopolysiloxane is characterized by two types of substituent groups bonded to the silicon atoms, of which the first type is --C.sub.x H.sub.2x OR', R' being a monovalent hydrocarbon group of 8 to 30 carbon atoms free from chain end unsaturation and x being 0-4, and the second type is --C.sub.y H.sub.2y (OC.sub.n H.sub.2n).sub.m OH, y being 1-4, n being 2-4 and m being 0-45.

  • Patent number: 4761454
    Abstract: Fine spherical particles of cured silicone elastomer can be prepared by spray-drying an aqueous emulsion of a curable organopolysiloxane composition having a particle diameter not exceeding 20 .mu.m. The organopolysiloxane composition comprises preferably an organopolysiloxane having silicon-bonded vinyl groups, an organohydrogenpolysiloxane having silicon-bonded hydrogen atoms and a platinum catalyst so that curing of the composition may take place in the emulsion before spray-drying or in the course of spray-drying by the addition reaction between the silicon-bonded vinyl groups and the silicon-bonded hydrogen atoms.
