    Abstract: A rubber compound based on propylene-oxide rubber SKPO, including sulfur, stearic acid, zinc oxide, thiuram disulphide, carbon black P-803. The compound is characterized by replacement of 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (kaptax), as well as fluoroplastic F-4, with dibenzothiazyl disulfide (altax), phenyl-?-naphthylamine (neozone D), dibutoxyethyl adipate, and ultrafine polytetrafluoroethylene (UPTFE). Such replacement of ingredients allows for significant improvement of wear resistance, frost resistance, and relative elongation. Additionally, relatively less UPTFE (compared to fluoroplastic F-4) can be used to achieve similar beneficial results, significantly reducing the cost of manufacturing the material.

Use of a rubber compound with the proposed composition increases the service life of rubber seals during their operation in sealing devices, due to higher frost resistance and a lower residual compressive strain value. Also, the compound can be manufactured by a simpler method compared to modern production technology, eliminating the stage of joint mechanical activation of zeolite and dibutyl phthalate.

    Abstract: An etch-resistant composition is provided. The etch-resistant composition comprises a polymer and a first organic solvent. The polymer is prepared by copolymerizing a polymerization unit comprising styrene-based monomer(s) and acrylate-based monomer(s), and has a weight average molecular weight of at least about 35,000. Based on the total weight of the etch-resistant composition, the amount of the polymer is about 20.0 to about 60.0 wt % and the amount of the solvent is about 40.0 to about 80.0 wt %. The etch-resistant composition can be used for preparing a selective emitter of a solar cell.

  • Publication number: 20130225730
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a new use for water-stable, oil-modified, nonreactive alkyd resins. It has now been found that such resins can be used as the predominant component of a construction adhesive employed in the manufacture of disposable absorbent articles, for example. As such, the construction adhesive need not employ plasticizers, tackifiers, and conventional polymers required by hot-melt adhesives typically used as construction adhesives. Furthermore, in the manufacture of disposable absorbent articles, the construction adhesive containing a water-stable, oil-modified, nonreactive, alkyd resin does not need to be processed or applied at the high temperatures required of construction adhesives containing reactive alkyds.
