    Abstract: The invention provides a process for the production of a cementious material. The process comprises mixing cement starting materials and a particulate healing agent to provide the cementious material. The healing agent comprises coated particles, wherein the coated particles comprise bacterial material and additive. The bacterial material is selected from the group consisting of a bacterium, a lyophilized bacterium and a bacterial spore of a bacterium. The present invention solves these problems, as (substantially leakage-proof) tablets containing the actual healing agent may neither interfere with either the workability of the liquid mixture (“cementious material”) nor negatively affect properties of either mixture or final material (hardened concrete), even when applied in large quantities. During crack formation in cementious based constructions, the particles also crack, and healing agent is released.

  • Patent number: 8779027
    Abstract: A production method of an aqueous pigment dispersion liquid of the present invention includes: a kneading step of kneading a mixture including (a) C. I. pigment violet 23, (b) a styrene-acrylic acid-based copolymer with an acid value of 50 to 300 mgKOH/g, (c) an alkali metal hydroxide, (d) water, and (e) a wetting agent, thereby producing a colored, kneaded material; and a dispersion step of dispersing the pigmented, kneaded material in an aqueous medium by using a dispersing machine with media, wherein the mass ratio of (b)/(a) in the kneading step is within a range of 0.15 to 0.45, the mass ratio of (d)/(a) in the first half of the kneading step is within a range of 0.04 to 0.42, and the change in viscosity of materials to be dispersed in the dispersion step is 10% or lower.

  • Publication number: 20140190370
    Abstract: This invention relates to compositions that are dispersions of pigments in the form of premixes that may be used to colour a variety of products such as plastics materials, inks and surface coatings and more particularly to compositions that are thixotropic. It also relates to premixes based on water soluble pigments that display Newtonian rheology. The compositions utilise water insoluble pigments having particle sizes that are less then about 10 microns. Both the thixotropic compositions and the Newtonian compositions include water soluble polyols and water. The pH of the premix may be adjusted to be in the range of 4-9 utilising acid or alkali as appropriate.

  • Patent number: 8747617
    Abstract: A method of preparing a stable dispersion of flocculated filler particles for use in papermaking processes comprises sequential addition of a first flocculating agent to an aqueous dispersion of filler particles followed by shearing of the dispersion, followed by addition of a second flocculating agent to the dispersion and further shearing of the resultant filler flocs to the desired particle size resulting in shear resistant filler flocs with a defined and controllable size distribution. In addition, a neutralizing coagulant can be added to the dispersion to partially or completely neutralize the charge of the filler before the first flocculating agent is added.

  • Patent number: 8647472
    Abstract: The invention provides a method of producing paper with a higher proportion of mineral filler particles than is otherwise be possible without the expected loss in paper strength by preflocculating the filler particles. The method allows for the use of the greater amount of filler particles by coating at least some of the filler particles with a material that prevents the filler materials form adhering to a strength additive. The strength additive holds the paper fibers together tightly and is not wasted on the filler particles.
