  • Publication number: 20100323202
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to the use of carboxylic acid hydrazide for de-bonding (e.g., detaching) polyurethane adhesives. The carboxylic acid hydrazide is present in the polyurethane adhesive as a solid in free form and is thus not incorporated in the polymer. When the adhesive is heated to a temperature of at least 80° C., the polymer is thermally degraded. With such an adhesive, components that are bonded in such a way can be detached in a simple method, by which the repair, the use or the recycling of the components is more easily possible.

  • Publication number: 20100152341
    Abstract: Compacted additive blends, or polymer stabilization agent blends, can be added during the post-polymerization process to enhance the processability performance of polymers. The addition of certain compaction aids, such as high melting or non-melting metallic silicates and others, increases the resistance to friability of the compacted additive pellets. These compaction aids are non-migratory during the compaction process and after introduction into the polymer resin and thus have no deleterious effects. The additive blend can contain a variety of suitable additives in addition to the compaction aids.
