  • Patent number: 8329794
    Abstract: A polymer composition of a compatibilized silica in blends of acrylonitrile butadiene polymer and styrene butadiene polymer comprising six to ninety percent by weight of a compatibilized silica, at least one percent by weight of a coupling agent, at least one percent by weight of a styrene butadiene polymer, and at least one percent by weight of an acrylonitrile butadiene polymer is described herein. The polymer composition can have a minimum amount of at least ten percent by weight of 15:50 ratio, acrylonitrile to butadiene polymer, with the remainder being compatibilized silica.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20110166264
    Abstract: An elastomeric thermoplastic non-vulcanized terpolymer composition formed from acrylonitrile, styrene, and liquid 1,3-butadiene is disclosed herein. The terpolymer can have from 20 percent by weight to 50 percent by weight of the acrylonitrile, from 0.5 percent by weight to 20 percent by weight of the styrene, and from 30 percent by weight to 79.5 percent by weight of the butadiene. The acrylonitrile can be cross-linked to the styrene. The thermoplastic non-vulcanized terpolymer can include fillers, UV stabilizers, and plasticizers. Also disclosed is an article formed by the elastomeric thermoplastic non-vulcanized terpolymer and a process for making the composition.

  • Publication number: 20110166265
    Abstract: High structure carbon black-styrene butadiene compositions and methods for making such are provided herein. In addition, articles made from the high structure carbon black-styrene butadiene compositions are also provided. The method can include high shear grinding a carbon black comprising from 1 percent by weight to 50 percent by weight of high structure carbon black that forms shear ground carbon black, and combining the shear grinded carbon black with water to form a carbon black slurry.

  • Publication number: 20110166262
    Abstract: A process for forming a compatibilized silica and nitrile polymer blend in latex form is described herein. The process can include treating a silica with a coupling agent in aqueous suspension to form a compatibilized silica slurry. The coupling agent can have the capacity of chemically reacting with the surface of the silica to bond the coupling agent thereto. The process can include blending at least a portion of the compatibilized silica slurry into a styrene butadiene polymer latex, forming a silica styrene butadiene polymer latex, and blending at least a portion of the compatibilized silica slurry into an acrylonitrile butadiene polymer latex, forming a silica acrylonitrile butadiene polymer latex. The process can include blending the silica styrene butadiene polymer latex with the silica acrylonitrile butadiene polymer latex, forming the compatibilized silica and nitrile polymer blend.
