  • Patent number: 8883253
    Abstract: Brominated butadiene polymers are recovered from solution and formed into particles by spraying the solution onto a heated, mechanically agitated bed of seed particles. The droplets contact the seed particles in the bed and form a polymer layer on the outside of the seed particles, thereby enlarging them. The solvent is removed from the droplets after they make contact with seed particles in the bed. The process allows for the simultaneous removal of solvent and formation of somewhat large particles. The process forms at most small amounts of agglomerates and fines.

  • Patent number: 8877292
    Abstract: The bicycle wheel manufactured by the method of the present invention is made of composite material and has two opposite braking surfaces, each of which is coated with a fluoride polymer layer. Specifically, the braking surfaces are sand blasted to remove a releasing agent layer coated on the wheel. The wheel is, thereafter, placed in a spraying machine at about 100 degree Celsius and then the braking surfaces are spray-coated with a material selected from the group consisting of polytetrafluoro ethylene, fluoride ethylene-propylene copolymer, polyfluoroalkyl, ethylene-tetrafluoro ethylene copolymer and the mixture thereof until a thickness of the material is bigger than 0.4 cm. Thereafter, the wheel is gradually heated to make the material set and form the fluoride polymer layers.
