However, there is the problem in which it is not easy to uniformly mix the nanoparticles and the microparticles. The present invention uses a bonding material including metal nanoparticles having an average particle diameter of 100 nm or less and a surface coated with an organic substance having 6 to 8 carbon atoms, and a polar solvent in an amount of 5 to 20% by mass with respect to a powder of the metal nanoparticles, and objects to be bonded with the bonding material interposed therebetween are fired at 200 to 350° C. under pressure. Thus, the metal nanoparticles are melted and returned to a bulk material, and therefore a bonding layer of the bulk material can be formed at a low temperature equal to or lower than a melting point.

    Abstract: Plasticizer blends comprise a triblend of diethylene glycol dibenzoate, dipropylene glycol dibenzoate, and 1,2-propylene glycol dibenzoate, in specified ratios, useful in combination with a multitude of thermoplastic polymers, thermosetting polymers, and elastomeric polymers and numerous applications, including but not limited to plastisols, adhesives, sealants, caulks, architectural coatings, industrial coatings, OEM coatings, inks, overprint varnishes, polishes, and the like. The advantages rendered by the use of the triblend depend on the type of polymer and application in which it is utilized and include among other advantages higher solvating power and lower processing time, low VOC's, reduced plasticizer freeze point, improved gelation and fusion characteristics, higher tensile strength, superior stain and extraction resistance, and improved rheology over traditional diblends of diethylene glycol dibenzoate and dipropylene glycol dibenzoate.

  • Publication number: 20130255539
    Abstract: The present invention concerns a composition and method of using adipamides in polymer applications. The composition is a blend of multi-components comprising dicarboxylic acids and amines. Specifically, the composition comprises adipic acid and monoethanolamine. The composition can further comprise at least one of the following: amides, esters, antioxidants, waxes, metal soaps, copolymers, polyesters, or fillers. However, these components are not necessary, and the composition can be utilized without these components. The composition is typically prepared in a cold reactor, wherein nitrogen flow is started and the temperature is increased gradually to approximately 360° F. Further, the disclosed composition reduces viscosity in polymer products, aids in melt integrity and process extrusion and promotes better mold release than conventional additives.
