    Abstract: An absorbent pad that contains activated carbon to reduce confinement odor in a vacuum-packaged food product is provided. An embodiment of absorbent pad contains activated carbon and an antimicrobial agent that further reduces confinement odor by two mechanisms of action: reducing bacterial counts in the liquid purge that cause breakdown of carbohydrates and proteins in food products; and trapping of confinement odor-causing breakdown products by the activated carbon. The absorbent body in the absorbent pad actively draws in liquid purge and dissolved volatile breakdown products in the vacuum package that produce confinement odor, which produces greater and more rapid contact of odor-causing compounds with the activated carbon.

    Abstract: A backer sheet comprising a natural fiber and impregnated with a water-based acrylate resin is thermofused with a wood cellulose sheet impregnated with the same or different water-based acrylate resin to provide a continuous laminate. The acrylate resin diffuses into the pores of the natural fiber backer sheet and the wood cellulose sheet during impregnation. Heat and pressure are used to thermofuse the backer sheet and the wood cellulose sheet to form the laminate, and the sheets are permanently bonded after thermofusion. Advantageously, the thermofused laminate is free of volatile organic compounds and formaldehyde emissions. A topcoat or an iron oxide layer can be applied to the wood cellulose sheet after impregnating the wood cellulose sheet with the acrylate resin. A design can be transferred to the surface of the laminate or sheets using techniques such as dye sublimation or direct printing.

    Abstract: A method for manufacturing the biopolymer panel may include positioning a plurality of biopolymer sheets adjacent to one another, and subjecting them to a laminating temperature that exceeds the glass-transition temperature of the sheets for a time period sufficient to achieve lamination. The laminate panel is then quenched at a quenching temperature that is below the glass-transition temperature. The time period during lamination, as well as any “rest” period between lamination and quenching, is sufficiently short so as to prevent clouding or hazing as a result of crystallization of the biopolymer resin materials. In addition, the panel exhibits sufficient flame retardency to meet applicable building codes, exhibits sufficient impact resistance for use as a decorative or structural panel building material, and exhibits no substantial thermally induced degradation as a result of subjection to the laminating temperature. The panels may be used as decorative or structural building materials.

  • Patent number: 8541109
    Abstract: The invention relates to a biodegradable polyester, particularly suitable for extrusion coating, comprising units deriving from at least a diacid and at least a diol, with long chain branches (isometric with respect to the main chains of the polyester) and essentially gel-free, characterized by optimum adhesion to paper, excellent sealability and processability in extrusion coating systems. Said biodegradable polyester is obtainable through a reactive extrusion process starting from a substantially linear polyester precursor with defined viscosity and concentration of reactive sites which allow transformation of a few chains of the polyester precursor into isometric branches of this polyester. A further object of the present invention is a laminate product composed of at least a backing, preferably paper, and of at least a first layer composed of polyester according to the invention.

  • Publication number: 20130230729
    Abstract: A coating composition and a floor product are disclosed. The coating composition has a biobased component that includes urethane acrylate, vinyl ether, or polyester acrylate. The coating composition includes at least about 5% by weight of renewable and/or biobased component. The coating composition is radiation curable, formed by acrylating a biobased polyol acrylate, and reacting the biobased polyol acrylate with polyisocyanate to form a biobased resin. The floor product includes a cellulosic substrate and a biobased coating applied to the cellulosic substrate.

  • Publication number: 20130220663
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a multilayer structure comprising: (a) a first layer containing polyester and cellulose wherein (i) the polyester is present in an amount of 0 to 50 weight percent floc and 50 to 100 weight percent fibrid, (ii) the cellulose is present in the form of cellulosic pulp fiber and; (iii) the polyester is present in an amount of 0.5 to 75 weight percent and the cellulose is present in an amount of 25 to 99 weight percent, said percentages on the basis of the polyester and cellulose and; (b) a second layer containing cellulosic pulp fiber with the proviso that the second layer does not contain polyester. The first layer may further comprise an aramid. The multilayer structure is particularly useful in a transformer.

  • Patent number: 8431232
    Abstract: Disclosed are hot-melt adhesives prepared from aromatic-aliphatic polyesters containing terephthalic acid in combination with adipic acid, glutaric acid, or a mixture thereof, as diacid components and a diol component containing 1,4-butanediol, 1,6-hexanediol, or a combination thereof. These adhesives set up rapidly within a well-defined temperature window. The hot-melt adhesives can be used in a variety of applications, but are especially suited as seaming adhesives for roll-applied labels. These adhesives have melting temperatures and crystallization properties that allow their application at temperatures cool enough to prevent curling and premature shrinkage of the shrink label during seaming, and yet produce strong label seams that can withstand the elevated temperatures of a shrink tunnel without sacrificing line speed. Also disclosed are labeled containers and a process for applying a roll-on, shrink label to a container using the hot-melt adhesives of the invention.
