  • Patent number: 10807344
    Abstract: Thermal insulation structures include a polymer foam layer adhered to a multi-layer sheet having a non-cellular layer of a heat-resistant thermoplastic and a second non-cellular layer of a polylactide resin. The polylactide resin is a surprisingly good barrier to the diffusion of atmospheric gases into the foam layer and of blowing agents out of the foam layer. Accordingly, the diffusion of atmospheric gases and blowing agents is retarded substantially. This greatly reduces the loss of thermal insulation capacity of the structure due to the replacement of the blowing agent with atmospheric gases. The multi-layer sheet exhibits excellent thermal stability, even when the polylactide in the polylactide layer is highly amorphous.

  • Patent number: 9062233
    Abstract: Described is a process for preparing an aqueous polymer dispersion from ethylenically unsaturated, free-radically polymerizable monomers. In a first stage, a first polymer is prepared by free-radical emulsion polymerization. In a second stage, an aqueous polymer dispersion is prepared in the presence of the first polymer. The monomers of the first stage comprise monomers with acid groups. The polymerization of the first stage takes place at a low pH of less than 5. The acid groups of the first polymer are neutralized during the polymerization of the second stage to an extent such that the pH of the polymer dispersion at the end of the second stage is greater than 5. The aqueous polymer dispersions can be used as adhesives for producing composite films.

The present development also includes a microlayered extrusion coating used for laminating two or more plastic extrudates. The microlayered extrusion coating comprises a microlayer core comprising a plurality of layers of gas barrier material having a thickness of less than five microns per layer with alternating tie layers. The microlayer core is sandwiched between polymeric boundary layers which are further sandwiched between polymeric skin layers. The present microlayered extrudate surprisingly exhibits a gas barrier significantly better than conventional thicker single barrier layers and increased opacity in the extrudate using white pigmented LDPE enhances the printed graphics in a laminate structure using a printed substrate.
