    Abstract: There is provided a removable water-dispersible pressure-sensitive adhesive composition to form a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer of a pressure-sensitive adhesive sheet capable of exhibiting good curl regulatability. There are also provided a pressure-sensitive adhesive sheet capable of exhibiting good curl regulatability, and an optical component having the pressure-sensitive adhesive sheet laminated thereon. The removable water-dispersible pressure-sensitive adhesive composition according to the present invention forms a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer of a pressure-sensitive adhesive sheet having an initial curl height of not less than 20 mm as determined by a curl test, and a difference in curl height of not more than 10 mm as determined by the curl test. The pressure-sensitive adhesive sheet according to the present invention has a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer formed of the removable water-dispersible pressure-sensitive adhesive composition.

  • Publication number: 20150024209
    Abstract: According to the present invention, a solvent having particles with a primary particle diameter of less than 100 nm to which a surface modification agent is bonded and also having compounds not bonded to the respective surfaces of the particles is made to contact a trap material larger than the particles while the solvent is in a supercritical state. The compounds in the solvent not bonded to the respective surfaces of the particles are trapped by the trap material and removed.

  • Publication number: 20150017512
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for producing a separator comprising the steps of: providing a sheetlike porous substrate, a solvent, ceramic particles and an adhesion promoter; preparing a slip by mixing the solvent, the adhesion promoter and the ceramic particles; coating the substrate with the slip and thermally drying the coated substrate to obtain the separator. The problem addressed is that of specifying a process useful for producing separators having a higher ceramic content. The problem is solved when the solvent used is a mixture of water and at least one organic component; the adhesion promoter used is a mixture of silanes and at least one thermally crosslinkable acrylic polymer; the slip is admixed with a carboxylic acid preparation and also with a defoamer component free from silicone oil.

  • Patent number: 8934216
    Abstract: The present invention provides a high dielectric film for a film capacitor obtained by molding a film forming composition for a film capacitor comprising a thermoplastic resin (A) and surface-treated high dielectric inorganic particles (B) obtained by treating the surfaces of high dielectric inorganic particles (b1) having a dielectric constant (20° C., 1 kHz) of 100 or more with a low dielectric compound (b2) having a dielectric constant (20° C., 1 kHz) of 10 or less. This high dielectric film for a film capacitor can restrain the decrease of electrical insulating property, in spite of the high dielectric inorganic particles being dispersed at a high filling rate.

  • Patent number: 8921460
    Abstract: Polyamide-filled acrylate copolymer compositions comprising a continuous acrylate copolymer phase and a discontinuous polyamide phase are produced by a melt mixing process. When crosslinked with diamine curatives the polyamide-filled acrylate copolymer compositions exhibit enhanced resistance to heat aging compared to carbon black-reinforced acrylate copolymer compositions.

  • Publication number: 20140364548
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an ink composition suitable for being ejected from an inkjet marking device at an operating temperature. The ink composition comprises a water-dispersible resin and has a dynamic surface tension of below 35 mN/m and a static surface tension of above 21 mN/m both determined at the operating temperature. The ink composition may comprise a mixture of water-soluble organic solvents having a difference in the relative dielectric constant of more than 5, preferably between 10 and 50. The ink composition may comprise a polymeric cosolvent, in particular a polyethylene glycol or polyethylene glycol (di)methyl ether. The ink composition may comprise a mixture of surfactants comprising at least one surfactant of a first type selected from the group consisting of acetylene glycols and ethoxylated acetylene glycols and at least one surfactant of a second type selected from the group consisting of silicone surfactants and fluorochemical surfactants.

  • Publication number: 20140287181
    Abstract: Hydrophilic adhesive compositions are disclosed that contain a surfactant that is miscible, but not fully soluble in the polymer matrix of the adhesive. This permits the surfactant to continuously replenish at the surface of the adhesive as other surfactant is removed, such as when it is carried away by an aqueous sample flowing over that surface in an in-vitro diagnostic device, resulting in adhesive compositions that are inherently hydrophilic on their surfaces and do not rely on the bloom mechanism of known hydrophilic adhesives. This provides greater design options for in-vitro diagnostic device manufacturers, including the use of hydrophilic adhesive spacers in lieu of or in combination with hydrophilic top covers.
