  • Patent number: 10870715
    Abstract: An object of the invention is to provide a solid polyaluminoxane composition suitably used as a cocatalyst and a catalyst carrier in combination with an olefin oligomerization or polymerization catalyst, without the use of solid inorganic carriers such as silica. The solid polyaluminoxane composition of the invention includes a polyalkylaluminoxane and a trialkylaluminum, and has a solubility in n-hexane at 25° C. of less than 0.50 mol % as measured by a specific method (i), a solubility in toluene at 25° C. of less than 1.0 mol % as measured by a specific method (ii), and a 13 mol % or more molar fraction of alkyl groups derived from the trialkylaluminum moieties relative to the total number of moles of alkyl groups derived from the polyalkylaluminoxane moieties and the alkyl groups derived from the trialkylaluminum moieties as measured with respect to tetrahydrofuran-d8 soluble components by a specific method (iii).

  • Publication number: 20200199260
    Abstract: To provide a statistical copolymer containing a chloroprene monomer unit and an unsaturated nitrile monomer unit which has a satisfactory oil resistance. A method for producing a statistical copolymer containing a chloroprene monomer unit and an unsaturated nitrile monomer unit includes a step for conducting continuous addition or 10 cycles or more of intermittent portionwise addition of the chloroprene monomer after initiation of a polymerization reaction is provided. A rubber composition using a statistical copolymer according to the invention or a vulcanized molded article containing the rubber composition is excellent in terms of oil resistance, mechanical strength, compression set at a low temperature and flex fatigue resistance.

  • Patent number: 10442413
    Abstract: A parking brake control apparatus 20 drives an electric motor 43B to advance a piston 39 according to an application request signal from a parking brake switch 19. The parking brake control apparatus 20 includes a running state detection portion that calculates a running state about whether a vehicle is running or stopped based on a wheel signal from a wheel speed sensor 18. When the running state cannot be calculated by the running state detection portion, the parking brake control apparatus 20 controls the electric motor 43B in such a manner that the thrust force of the piston 39 changes at a lower time rate of change than when the running state can be calculated.

  • Patent number: 10293800
    Abstract: A parking brake controller (19) activates an electric actuator (43) in response to operation of a parking switch (18) to hold a disc brake (31) to serve as a parking brake. If a failure (fault) is detected in the parking switch (18), the parking brake controller (19) activates the electric actuator (43) so as to hold the parking brake automatically upon detecting a condition that presumes the vehicle operator's intent not to drive any longer while the vehicle is at rest.
