  • Patent number: 9365700
    Abstract: Amino alkoxy-modified silsesquioxanes (amino AMS), and/or amino co-AMS compounds that also comprise a mercaptosilane or a blocked mercaptosilane, are excellent adhesives for coating plated or unplated metal wire for adherence of the wire to a rubber stock. The amino AMS and/or the amino/mercaptan co-AMS adhesives can be used with all types of rubber and there is no requirement for the use of special adhesive additives to the rubber vulcanizates, such as, but not limited to, cobalt, resins and high sulfur levels. In particular, the use of amino AMS and/or amino/mercaptan co-AMS compounds as adhesives for bonding wire to rubber also improves the adherence performance of the reinforcements to obtain sufficient bonding that is resistant to degradation over the course of time, especially resistance to thermal aging and/or thermo-oxidizing aging, in particular corrosion in the presence of water.

  • Patent number: 8802756
    Abstract: An object to be achieved by the invention is to provide a biodegradable low-charging fiber. The prevent inventors have found that when a specific amount of a specific phospholipid that is not known to have antistatic properties is added to a biodegradable polymer, and the resulting mixture is formed into a fiber having a smooth surface, low-charging properties are developed. The invention has thus been accomplished. The invention is a fiber having an average surface porosity of less than 3% and made of a biodegradable polymer that contains a specific amount of a specific phospholipid.
