  • Publication number: 20150111035
    Abstract: A thermosetting resin composition has good storage properties at room temperature and an unreacted epoxy resin etc. are less likely to exude therefrom during heat compression molding. The thermosetting resin composition contains an acrylic copolymer including an epoxy group-containing (meth)acrylate unit, an epoxy resin, and a curing agent for an epoxy resin. In this thermosetting resin composition, epoxy groups in at least the acrylic copolymer are partially cross-linked with an amine compound and a thiol compound having 2 to 4 thiol groups per molecule, and the curing agent for an epoxy resin is an organic acid dihydrazide.

  • Patent number: 8999452
    Abstract: The present invention provides a surface-independent surface-modifying multifunctional biocoating and methods of application thereof. The method comprises contacting at least a portion of a substrate with an alkaline solution comprising a surface-modifying agent (SMA) such as dopamine so as to modify the substrate surface to include at least one reactive moiety. In another version of the invention, a secondary reactive moiety is applied to the SMA-treated substrate to yield a surface-modified substrate having a specific functionality.

  • Publication number: 20150086792
    Abstract: The invention relates to an process for coating a glass substrate with an environmentally friendly aqueous, fluoropolymer coating composition. The process involves applying a polyurethane primer to the glass substrate, and partially, but not completely crosslinking this primer coating. An aqueous hydroxyl-functional fluoropolymer coating is then applied to the partially crosslinked primer coating, and the coating allowed to fully cure. The invention also relates to the intertwined multilayer primer/fluoropolymer coating on the glass substrate. The final coating has excellent wet adhesion to glass, good weathering, durability, chalking resistance, chemical resistance, and dirt pickup resistance.
