    Abstract: This disclosure provides a plywood article that is pre-cured or cured. The plywood includes a first wood veneer, a second wood veneer disposed opposite the first wood veneer and an adhesive composition disposed between the first wood veneer and the second wood veneer. The adhesive composition is either cured or not cured. Prior to cure, the adhesive composition consists essentially of an isocyanate component and Kaolin. After cure, the cured adhesive composition consists essentially of a self-polymerization product of the isocyanate component and the Kaolin. The Kaolin is present in an amount of from greater than 10 to 50 weight percent based on a total weight of the adhesive composition. Moreover, each of the first and second wood veneers independently has a moisture content of from 0 to 45 weight percent.

  • Publication number: 20140071529
    Abstract: The present invention provides an optical layered body that has multiple laminated layers of which the refractive indexes are greatly different. The optical layered body can suitably prevent interfacial reflection and interference fringes attributed to the reflection in the interfaces between the layers. The optical layered body has a light-transmitting substrate, and at least an optical functional layer (1) on one surface of the substrate, wherein the refractive index of the optical functional layer (1) in the thickness direction continuously increases from the surface on the light-transmitting substrate side to the surface opposite to the light-transmitting substrate side to show a sigmoid curve.

  • Patent number: 8663425
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for easily and efficiently manufacturing microfibrous cellulose composite sheets. The present invention is a method for manufacturing microfibrous cellulose composite sheets, including a preparation process in which a polymer emulsion is mixed with an aqueous suspension including microfibrous cellulose, thereby preparing a mixed fluid, a papermaking process in which the mixed fluid is dehydrated on a porous base material through filtration, and a sheet including moisture is formed, and a drying process in which the sheet including moisture is heated and dried. In addition, the present invention is a method for manufacturing a microfibrous cellulose composite sheet laminate, in which the microfibrous cellulose sheets are thermally compressed and thus laminated as they are or after being provided with a polymer layer on at least one surface thereof.

  • Patent number: 8568889
    Abstract: Aqueous polyurethane dispersions are made from urethane prepolymers comprising one or more polyhydroxy compounds from ketone functional molecules derived from an epoxidized natural oil. Addition of a hydrazine functional moiety to the prepolymer dispersion can further provide a crosslinking mechanism resulting in the formation of azomethine linkages in the resulting polyurethane during drying. When the ketone functional molecule is derived from levulinic acid and epoxidized vegetable oil, the resulting urethane dispersion can also be converted into a hybrid polyurethane-vinyl dispersion by adding and polymerizing one or more vinyl monomers in the polyurethane prepolymer or polyurethane dispersion.
