  • Patent number: 9763858
    Abstract: Dental restorative formulations comprising an additive material and a capsule incorporated into the continuous phase of a dental material. The additive material includes one or more alkoxy groups and one or more vinyl groups. The capsule includes a catalyst and a molecule with one or more silanol groups. The dental restorative formulation is applied and polymerized to form a composite. When a disturbance occurs in the dental composite, the capsule ruptures so that the catalyst initiates a condensation reaction between the molecule with one or more silanol groups and the one or more alkoxy groups thereby healing the dental composite.

  • Patent number: 9714191
    Abstract: The invention relates to an process for coating a glass substrate with an environmentally friendly aqueous, fluoropolymer coating composition. The process involves applying a polyurethane primer to the glass substrate, and partially, but not completely crosslinking this primer coating. An aqueous hydroxyl-functional fluoropolymer coating is then applied to the partially crosslinked primer coating, and the coating allowed to fully cure. The invention also relates to the intertwined multilayer primer/fluoropolymer coating on the glass substrate. The final coating has excellent wet adhesion to glass, good weathering, durability, chalking resistance, chemical resistance, and dirt pickup resistance.
