  • Patent number: 8710131
    Abstract: A water redispersible polymer powder may be produced by drying an aqueous mixture of a water insoluble film-forming polymer and a colloidal stabilizer comprising a chelating agent to obtain a water redispersible polymer powder, where the amount of chelating agent is at least 0.1% by weight, preferably at least 1% by weight, most preferably at least 3% by weight, based upon the weight of the water insoluble film-forming polymer. Dispersions or polymer compositions containing a chelating agent as a colloidal stabilizer exhibit an unexpectedly low viscosity which facilitates spray drying and permits use of high solids content dispersions with low pressure spray drying to increase production efficiency. The chelating agents are stable at high pH and so high pH spray dryable compositions containing them as a colloidal stabilizer may sit or be stored for prolonged periods of time prior to spray drying without loss of effectiveness of the colloidal stabilizer.

Above the phase change temperature of the solvent, the phase change solvent solubilizes or intimately mixes with the thermoplastic polymer. Below the phase change temperature of the solvent, the phase change solvent solidifies or crystallizes within the thermoplastic matrix. The phase change behavior of these materials produce blended compositions that exhibit lowered shear viscosity and lowered processing temperature without substantially compromising mechanical properties of the thermoplastic polymer, such as hardness. The present invention also relates to a method of improving the processability of a thermoplastic polymer using the phase change solvent.

  • Patent number: 7528187
    Abstract: A spray-on ultra violet light absorbing composition for application on bird decoys and related bird hunting and bird watching apparatus, and the process for making the composition. The composition is made in three phases each separately mixed and thereafter combined. In phase A, a thickener, optionally a preservative, a pH adjuster and distilled water are combined and mixed. In phase B, a disperser, a solvent, a film forming polymer and a pH buffer are combined and mixed. The mixtures of phase A and phase B are heated, combined and mixed. In phase C, a UV absorbent, a wetting agent, emulsifiers, and optionally a surface smoother, are combined and mixed. The mixture of phase C is heated and added to the heated phase A and phase B mixture. The mixture is thereafter cooled, diluted and homogenized.

    Abstract: Pulverulent polycondensation products are described, consisting of a) 5 to 95% by weight of a polycondensation product based on an aromatic or heteroaromatic compound (A) having 5 to 10 C atoms or heteroatoms having at least one oxyethylene or oxypropylene radical and one aldehyde (C) selected from the group consisting of formaldehyde, glyoxylic acid and benzaldehyde or mixtures thereof, and b) 5 to 95% by weight of a finely divided mineral carrier material having a specific surface area of 0.5 to 500 m2/g (according to BET as specified in DIN 66 131). The pulverulent polycondensation products according to the invention are outstandingly suitable in construction material mixtures in an amount of from 0.1 to 5% by weight, based on the weight of the construction material. The pulverulent polycondensation products have a number of advantages here, such as, for example, excellent storage stability, good liquefying action at low dosage and industrially simple production.

  • Patent number: 7468411
    Abstract: Novel elastomeric compositions which contain at least one thermoplastic elastomer and at least one phase change solvent and at least one processing oil. The presence of particular processing oils, e.g., poly(alphaolefins), provide a means to increase mechanical properties compared to commercially available mineral oils. The oils of the present invention are chosen as to minimize the depression of glass transition temperature of the hard-block of the thermoplastic elastomer. The phase change behavior of these materials produce elastomeric compositions that exhibit lowered viscosity and lowered processing temperature without substantially compromising the mechanical properties of the elastomeric composition.
