  • Patent number: 8608905
    Abstract: This invention concerns the production of a multilayer fiber product. According to the method, on top of a bottom layer consisting of at least one fiber layer, a second fiber layer is fitted containing filler that forms the surface layer. According to the invention, the layers are formed by multilayer web forming technology, and the surface layer filler includes cellulose or lignocellulose fibrils, on which light-scattering material particles are deposited, having a maximum proportion of the total filler weight of 85%. By means of the invention, a base paper is achieved that is suited to thin, coated paper grades, where conventionally the intrusion of the coating color into the bottom paper and through it is a problem.

  • Publication number: 20130330504
    Abstract: A porous carbon that has an extremely high specific surface area while being crystalline, and a method of manufacturing the porous carbon are provided. A porous carbon has mesopores 4 and a carbonaceous wall 3 constituting an outer wall of the mesopores 4, wherein the carbonaceous wall 3 has a portion forming a layered structure. The porous carbon is fabricated by mixing a polyamic acid resin 1 as a carbon precursor with magnesium oxide 2 as template particles; heat-treating the mixture in a nitrogen atmosphere at 1000° C. for 1 hour to cause the polyamic acid resin to undergo heat decomposition; washing the resultant sample with a sulfuric acid solution at a concentration of 1 mol/L to dissolve MgO away; and heat-treating the noncrystalline porous carbon in a nitrogen atmosphere at 2500° C.

  • Publication number: 20130327479
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for producing a prepreg which contains reinforcing fibers and a matrix resin composition with the weight per square meter of the reinforcing fibers being 250-2,000 g/m2. The production method comprises the following steps (1)-(3): (1) a matrix resin composition blending step for obtaining a matrix resin composition by mixing an epoxy resin, a radically polymerizable unsaturated compound, an epoxy resin curing agent and a polymerization initiator that generates radicals, in said step the content of the radically polymerizable unsaturated compound relative to 100% by mass of the total of the epoxy resin and the radically polymerizable unsaturated compound being 10-25% by mass; (2) a matrix resin composition impregnating step; and (3) a surface viscosity increasing step.

  • Publication number: 20130323497
    Abstract: A fire-resistant laminate is described, which distinguishes itself by its low heating value ?3 MJ/kg according to ISO 1716 and thanks to its special multilayer structure has excellent mechanical characteristics and a very good stability under changing climatic conditions (hot/humid/cold/dry). The laminate according to the invention comprises several mineral and glass non-woven fabrics with different functionalities and components. This includes high-filled non-woven fabrics, B-stage binders and other additives. Its great mechanical strength as well as the very good stability under changing climatic conditions (hot/humid/cold/dry) allow its reasonable use in many areas where until now exclusively laminates according to EN 438 are used and furthermore.
