  • Patent number: 8778131
    Abstract: This invention relates to a process for sealing an above-ground or underground structure. It involves in particular the use of non-reactive dispersion adhesive compounds. This process in particular has the advantage that good and long-lived adhesion can be achieved very quickly, and that in particular the non-reactive dispersion adhesives that are used have a small tendency to absorb the plasticizers present in the PVC sealing film, so that as a result this process is best suited to assure long-lasting adhesion of PVC films with various substrates.

  • Patent number: 8734609
    Abstract: A process for continuous manufacturing of moisture-curable polyurethane formulations used as sealants and adhesives. The process is characterized by the fact that the reactive components are introduced independently, and without the need for a prepolymer, to a mixer. Solid or liquid raw materials can be either pre-blended or fed directly to the mixer, a twin-screw extruder, which provides the requisite energy to homogenously mix the raw materials and drive the chemical reaction. The process is designed so that the extruder barrel and screw allow variable feed addition and heat exchange down the length of the machine. This allows various operations to be performed at different points in the extruder, including reaction, dispersive mixing, distributive mixing and devolitization.

  • Patent number: 8716427
    Abstract: A two-component curable solventless adhesive which enables a laminated composite film comprising a barrier layer and a plastic film laminated with each other to maintain excellent appearance and adhesive strength for a long period even after a sterilization treatment at high temperature, and to appropriately adjust a reaction between a base resin and a curing agent during a production of the laminated composite film. The two-component curable solventless adhesive comprises a base resin and a curing agent, wherein the base resin contains a polyol having an acid group and a secondary or tertiary terminal hydroxyl group accounting for 30% or more of the entire terminal hydroxyl groups of the polyol, and the curing agent contains an isocyanate group-terminated urethane prepolymer containing at least an aralkyl polyisocyanate and/or a modified substance thereof as a raw polyisocyanate, and a content of a low molecular weight polyisocyanate is defined.

  • Patent number: 8696844
    Abstract: A method is provided of adhesively bonding an elastomeric member to a glass substrate in such a way as to accelerate the building of the strength of such bond and to a vehicle glazing having such an elastomeric member bonded to the glass substrate. This accelerated bonding process is accomplished by mixing a nucleophilic and/or electrophilic catalyst with a beneficial amount of an adhesion promoting primer applying such mixture to a peripheral portion of the glass substrate and exposing same to ambient air. By accelerating the building of the subject bond strength, the rate of “creep” is significantly reduced.

  • Patent number: 8668986
    Abstract: The present invention relates to aromatic aldimines, which are based on primary aromatic polyamines, which are solid at room temperature and liquid at room temperature and which have the lowest possible viscosity, hydrolyze with little odor, and can be used as blocked amines in curable compositions, in particular in compositions having one-component and two-component isocyanate groups. Said compositions have a relatively long open time, but cure surprisingly rapidly, said curing occurring without strong odor formation and without bubbling. In addition, the compositions have outstanding mechanical properties after curing, in particular high strength with high ductility, and good resistance to heat and moisture.
