  • Publication number: 20130210983
    Abstract: A thermoplastic composition that contains a rigid renewable polyester and a polymeric toughening additive is provided. The toughening additive can be dispersed as discrete physical domains within a continuous matrix of the renewable polyester. An increase in the deformation force and elongational strain causes debonding to occur in the renewable polyester matrix at those areas located adjacent to the discrete domains. This can result in the formation of a plurality of voids adjacent to the discrete domains that can help to dissipate energy under load and increase impact strength. To even further increase the ability of the composition to dissipate energy in this manner, an interphase modifier may be employed that reduces the degree of friction between the toughening additive and renewable polyester and thus enhances the degree and uniformity of debonding.

  • Publication number: 20120329911
    Abstract: A process for making a block copolymer compatibilizer comprises reacting an acrylic and/or vinyl monomer that has functional groups with one or more vinyl monomers in the presence of a free radical initiator and a stable free radical to form a reaction product that includes residual unreacted acrylic and/or vinyl monomer, and reacting one or more vinyl monomers with the reaction product to form a second block that incorporates the residual unreacted acrylic monomer. The block copolymer is used to compatibilize a clay nanocomposite material with a thermoplastic or thermoset resin. The block copolymer can be used with existing, commercially-available clays, or the block copolymer can be formed with a polar block that is miscible in a polar dispersion medium for use as a intercalate in producing a clay nanocomposite material.

  • Publication number: 20120171362
    Abstract: Disclosed are a non-fluorine and non-silicon hydrocarbon-based adhesive composition for substrate surface treatment for inkjet printing, a substrate surface-treated by the composition, and a method for modifying the surface of the substrate by using the composition so as to form fine lines by means of inkjet nano ink. The disclosed composition includes only an epoxy resin, or includes an epoxy resin and an acrylic compound, so as to hydrophobically modify the substrate. The composition can achieve better properties such as an increase in an ink contact angle, an ink spreadability inhibiting effect, and a wiring adhesive strength, as compared to a conventional silicon-based and/or fluorinated adhesive. Furthermore, since a conventional silicon-based and fluorinated adhesive component is not used, it is possible to perform substrate surface treatment in terms of environmental safety, thereby improving the productivity and the economic efficiency.
