  • Patent number: 8460758
    Abstract: This invention is directed to a process for the preparation of a crosslinker composition, comprising the steps of providing a mixture of an aliphatic alcohol A having at least one hydroxyl group and from 1 to 10 carbon atoms, with at least one multifunctional aldehyde C having at least two aldehyde groups —CHO to form a mixture AC, heating the mixture AC to convert at least a part of the multifunctional aldehyde C to its hemiacetal or to its acetal to form a mixture (AC)?, adding to the mixture (AC)? least one cyclic urea U or the educts to produce the said cyclic urea U in situ, which cyclic urea U has at least one unsubstituted >NH group, and reacting the mixture thus obtained to form a chemical bond between the nitrogen atom of the at least one unsubstituted >NH group of the at least one cyclic urea U5 and the carbon atom of the least one aldehyde group —CHO of the multifunctional aldehyde C, and coating compositions comprising the said crosslinker composition.

  • Patent number: 8449939
    Abstract: New compositions for forming films for use in optical devices are provided. The compositions comprise a cellulose and a crosslinking agent dissolved or dispersed in a solvent system. Preferred celluloses are cellulose esters such as cellulose acetates, cellulose triacetates, cellulose acetate phthalates, and cellulose acetate butyrates. Preferred crosslinking agents are triazines such as those derived from melamine and benzoguanamine. The inventive compositions can be used to form, for example, protective and/or compensation films for use in polarizing plates.

  • Patent number: 8445072
    Abstract: A method of treating wooden parts is described in which a) the wooden parts are impregnated with an aqueous cyanamide solution and subsequently b) the impregnated wooden parts, where appropriate after drying, are subjected to a heat treatment of 130 to 250° C. Here it has surprisingly emerged that impregnation with cyanamide even in small amounts has a significantly positive influence on the performance properties of the treated wooden parts, such as high hardness, low water absorption and very good weathering stability, for example. Moreover, only small amounts of a toxicologically and environmentally unobjectionable impregnating agent are needed in order to obtain these advantageous properties.

  • Patent number: RE44108
    Abstract: A high performance flame retardant textile fabric is provided which is suitable for use in producing close-fitting garments, such as undergarments, that come into direct contact with the skin of the wearer and provide a protective function, as well as in non-apparel applications. The fabric is formed of yarns of rayon continuous filaments, the yarns having outer filaments along the periphery of the yarn and inner filaments in the interior of the yarn. A cured phosphorus-based flame retardant compound is durably affixed to the filaments and imparts flame retardant properties to the fabric. The outer filaments of the yarns have a phosphorus content at least 25% greater than the inner filaments of the yarn.
