  • Patent number: 10413893
    Abstract: The method for oligomerizing olefin according to the present disclosure is a method for oligomerizing olefin using an oligomerization catalyst system and includes deteriorating the activity of the oligomerization catalyst system by injecting a deactivator in a latter part of a multimerization reaction of olefin. The deactivator may include an additive for polymer containing at least one functional group selected from the group consisting of a hydroxyl group, an amine group and an amide group. According to the oligomerizing method, the isomer of 1-hexene and/or 1-octene and alpha-olefins with C10 to C40 may be decreased via the restraint of the additional side reaction of a product. Since the deactivator is an additive for enhancing the physical properties of a polymer, a separating process thereof is not required, thereby improving economic feasibility and productivity.

  • Patent number: 7393401
    Abstract: A water based spray wax composition containing a microemulsion of a cationic wax nanoparticles, a quaternary silicone compound and zinc oxide nanoparticles providing long lasting protection of paint, glass, and metal, plastic, rubber, or elastomeric trim surfaces. The use of microemulsions or nanometer sized particles in the primary ingredients provides a transparent spray wax composition, which provides excellent coverage due to a significantly larger surface area, due to the nanoparticles used in the formulation. It also enables the wax particles to penetrate and fill small cracks and crevices for improved appearance, and durability of the spray wax properties.

  • Patent number: 7381250
    Abstract: The present invention provides a liquid protectant composition composed of a cationic microemulsion of a natural wax (carnauba wax) nanometer sized particles and zinc oxide nanometer sized particles in combination with a quaternary siloxane compound. The protectant composition of the present invention cleans, protects preserves and enhances the appearances of leather or vinyl surfaces used for covering items in the home or in vehicles. The product is easy to apply to both smooth and textured surfaces and has a transparent appearance. The product dries quickly and does not leave an oily residue. Utilization of nano technology to select components having nano sized particles provides a uniform deposition of the product leaving a thin film having exceptional protection properties. Unlike conventional protectants, the invention of the instant composition dries quickly and leaves no oily residue behind.
