  • Patent number: 8362103
    Abstract: The invention provides a resin composition which develops excellent flame retardance after curing in spite of its being free from halogen-containing compounds and antimony compounds, which are liable to cause environmental load, and which can give a film meeting the recent sever demands for higher flexing resistance and insulation reliability. Specifically, the invention provides a resin composition which comprises (A) a polyimide precursor and (B) an adduct of an organophosphorus compound represented by formula (1) with a compound having four or more (meth)acrylate groups. It is preferable that the resin composition further contain (C) a phosphazene compound.

  • Patent number: 8124667
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for radiation grafting a compound by irradiation, that can be grafted onto a fluoropolymer, so as to prevent destabilization of the fluorinated polymer. Said method comprises the following steps: a) the fluoropolymer is mixed in the melted state thereof with a graftable compound; b) the mixture obtained in a) is converted into films, plates, granulates or powder; c) the products from step b) are subjected to photonic (?) or electronic (?) irradiation in a dose of between 0.5 and 15 Mrad; and d) optionally, the products from step c) are washed and/or a degassed. According to said method, a stabilizing agent is added to the fluorinated polymer. Said stabilizing agent can be an antioxidant, a graftable metal salt, or a combination of the two. The invention also relates to structures comprising at least one layer of said mixtures and at least one layer of another material, and to the use of said structures to obtain a barrier effect.
