  • Patent number: 8883924
    Abstract: Provided is a resin blend including a first resin and a second resin, the second resin having a hydrophobic functional group in a side chain and having a surface energy difference of 0.1 to 20 mN/m from the first resin at 25° C., the resin blend being capable of forming a layer separation structure. Also, provided are a pellet, a method for preparing the same, and a resin molding article having a specific layer separation structure. The resin blend may not only improve mechanical properties and surface hardness of the molding article but also shorten process time, increase productivity and reduce production cost by omitting an additional surface coating step.

  • Patent number: 8871347
    Abstract: An aluminum chelate-based latent curing agent having excellent latency and thermal response includes a latent curing agent in which an aluminum chelating agent is retained in a porous resin obtained by interfacial polymerization of a polyfunctional isocyanate compound, and an enzyme-treated gelatin film coating such latent curing agent. This microcapsule-type latent curing agent can be produced by dissolving an aluminum chelating agent and a polyfunctional isocyanate compound in a volatile organic solvent, charging the obtained solution into a gelatin-containing aqueous phase, carrying out interfacial polymerization by heating and stirring, and subjecting the gelatin to an enzyme treatment by adding an enzyme to the obtained polymerization reaction mixture.

  • Patent number: 8865799
    Abstract: The present invention provides a process for making silica-filled rubber masterbatch using silica hydrophobated with a trimethoxy silane coupling agent that is soluble in an alcohol-water solution containing at least about 70 wt % water. One embodiment uses a mixture of trimethoxy silanes, one or more of which react with rubber to bond the silica to the rubber, and one or more of which do not react with rubber, but do hydrophobate the silica. Hydrophobated silica is mixed with latex polymer and incorporated into rubber during coagulation of the latex, which is preferably coagulated with calcium chloride. The present invention further provides a process for making the trimethoxy silane coupling agents. Preferred trimethoxy silane coupling agents include bis-(3-trimethoxysilylpropyl)-disulfide and bis-(3-trimethoxysilylpropyl)-tetrasulfide.

  • Publication number: 20140308522
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a nano-graphite plate structure with N graphene layers stacked together, where N is 30 to 300. The nanometer nano-graphite structure has a tap density of 0.1 g/cm3 to 0.01 cm3, a thickness of 10 nm to 100 nm, and a lateral dimension of 1 ?m to 100 ?m. The ratio of the lateral dimension to the thickness is between 10 and 10,000. The oxygen content is less than 3 wt %, and the carbon content is larger than 95 wt %. The nano-graphite plate structure has both the excellent features of the graphene and the original advantages of easy processability of the natural graphite so as to be broadly used in various application fields.
