The aqueous solution may include a polycarboxy polymer that is about 10%, by wt., to 100%, by wt., of a butenedioic acid or butenedioic anhydride; and a polyol. The compositions can maintain a pH of about 5 or more after being cured into a thermoset plastic with the fibers. Processes for preparing a binder composition for organic or inorganic fibers are also described. The processes may include providing an aqueous solution of polycarboxylic acid polymers, where the polymers comprise about 10%, by wt., to 100%, by wt., of a butenedioic acid or butenedioic anhydride; adding a polyol to the aqueous solution; and maintaining the pH of the aqueous solution at about 5 or more.

  • Patent number: 8901465
    Abstract: A nitrogen gas tank, a rotary pump and a mechanical booster pump are connected to a bonding vessel that constitutes a bonding apparatus for carrying out diffusion bonding, the apparatus further comprising a pressure sensor. A nitrogen gas atmosphere is formed inside the bonding vessel, and under control operations of a control circuit, a nitrogen introduction rate is controlled so that a pressure is substantially fixed at a predetermined pressure between 3-105 Pa. At such a state, under the action of a rod of a hydraulic cylinder, a second electrode is brought into proximity with a first electrode, so that ultimately, a first object to be bonded and a second object to be bonded on the first electrode are pressed. Further, current is applied through the first electrode and the second electrode with respect to the first object to be bonded and the second object to be bonded.
