Silane, Silicone Or Siloxane In Coating Patents (Class 428/391)
  • Patent number: 10494261
    Abstract: An inorganic polysilazane resin of the present invention has a Si/N ratio (i.e. a ratio of contained silicon atoms to contained nitrogen atoms) of 1.30 or more. The inorganic polysilazane resin having such a high Si content can be produced by, for example, a method in which an inorganic polysilazane compound containing both Si—NH and Si—Cl is heated to react NH with Cl, a method in which a silazane oligomer (polymer) that leaves no Si—Cl bond is synthesized and a dihalosilane is added to the synthesized silazane oligomer (polymer) to perform a thermal reaction, and the like. A siliceous film can be formed by, for example, applying a coating composition containing the inorganic polysilazane resin onto a base plate and then dried and the dried product is then oxidized by bringing the dried product into contact with water vapor or hydrogen peroxide vapor and water vapor under heated conditions.

  • Patent number: 9970153
    Abstract: The present invention provides a roofing product comprised of an asphalt coating on a nonwoven fiberglass mat. Enhanced tear strength for the roofing product, generally an asphalt shingle, is obtained by the presence of a release agent. The release agent can be a coating on the fiberglass mat, an additive in the mat binder, or present as an additive in the asphalt itself. Preferably, the release agent is a reactive polysiloxane which can react with any component within the roofing product, including the glass surface, sizing chemicals, binder chemicals, as well as the asphalt coating. The reaction can take place either during or after the polysiloxane is added or applied.

  • Patent number: 9530965
    Abstract: One aspect of the invention relates to a linker-free, one-step method of grafting polymer films onto organic substrates, and the films obtained by such a method. In certain embodiments, the grafted polymer films are conductive. In certain embodiments, said grafting method utilizes the ability for Friedel-Crafts catalyst to form radical cations from organic substrates. In one embodiment, the method provides poly-3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (PEDOT) thin films grafted to organic substrates. In other embodiments, the method is applicable to the polymerization of other monomers to yield conducting polymers, such as polyanilines, polypyrroles, polyfurans, polythiophenes and their derivatives. Remarkably, the polymer films grafted by the inventive methods show enormous increases in adhesion strength. Further, in certain embodiments, polymer patterns were easily obtained using the inventive methods and soft lithography techniques.
