  • Publication number: 20150141559
    Abstract: A polyester-based fiber for artificial hair of the present invention is a polyester-based fiber for artificial hair formed of a polyester resin composition. The polyester resin composition contains 5 to 40 parts by weight of a brominated epoxy flame retardant and 0.05 to 5 parts by weight of an acidic compound with respect to 100 parts by weight of a polyester resin. The polyester resin is one or more kind of resin selected from the group consisting of polyalkylene terephthalate and copolymerized polyester containing polyalkylene terephthalate as a main component. The acidic compound is an acidic phosphorus-based compound having a pH of 3.5 or less. A hair ornament product of the present invention contains the polyester-based fiber for artificial hair.

  • Patent number: 9034965
    Abstract: The invention relates to an epoxidized composition and a process for producing the same. The epoxidized composition is useful as a plasticizer for thermoplastics such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and other polymers. The process includes forming a blend containing one or more fatty acid esters and one or more bio-based oils; and epoxidizing the blend to form the epoxidized composition. This process has several advantages over a process of forming a blend of already epoxidized fatty acid esters and epoxidized bio-based oils.

  • Publication number: 20150067940
    Abstract: A method of treating fibers to improve resistance to high temperatures and relative humidity includes providing poly(p-phenylene-2,6-benzobisoxazole) (PBO) fibers, exposing the PBO fibers to an atmosphere of supercritical CO2 saturated with an epoxy silane, i.e. 3-glycidoxypropyl methyldimethoxysilane. The PBO fibers are subjected to a first pressurizing and heating stage at a first temperature (50° C.) for a first period of time. The PBO fibers are then subjected to a second pressurizing and heating stage including increasing the temperature to a second temperature (110° C.) and holding at the second temperature for an additional period of time. The PBO fibers include 2-5 wt % of 3-glycidoxypropyl methyldimethoxysilane after diffusing the CO2 out of the PBO fibers. The fibers are particularly useful in making lightweight body armor system components.

  • Patent number: 8962723
    Abstract: A durable substrate coating and a process of making include a resin master batch. The resin master batch can include ethylene propylene diene with a polymethylene backbone, mineral spirits, fillers, a de-tackifier, a curative, an activator component, and a metal dryer. The process can include adding the mineral spirits to: the ethylene propylene diene, a plasticizer, and the de-tackifier, and blending to form a solution. The process can include adding the fillers, a light stabilizer, a rheology modifier, and a pigment to the solution, forming a first mixture. The process can include adding another rheology modifier, another light stabilizer, an antioxidant, and a curative to the first mixture, forming a second mixture. The process can include mixing the second mixture to homogenously disperse each ingredient while maintaining a temperature of 60 degrees Celsius to prevent the mineral spirits from flashing.
