  • Publication number: 20010044498
    Abstract: The invention relates to water-soluble block copolymers comprising at least one block of hydrophobic nature and at least one block of hydrophilic nature, the block of hydrophobic nature exhibiting hydrophilic units in an amount of between 33% and 99% by weight with respect to the total weight of the units of the hydrophobic block. These copolymers are preferably diblocks or triblocks and are prepared by a polymerization process referred to as a living or controlled. Control of their hydrophilic-lipophilic balance makes it possible to adjust their solubility in water and their self-association properties. These copolymers can be used in particular as adhesion agents or wetting agents.

  • Patent number: 6172147
    Abstract: Mortar cement additives provide workability while retaining strength by employing a multi-stage polymer comprising a hydrophobically-modified, ionically-soluble polymer stage, the polymer being soluble at a pH of 6 and above; and an air-entraining agent. The additives also employ, as optional ingredients, set retarding agents and superplasticizers. Examplary methods of the invention involve addition of the multi-stage polymer and an air entraining agent to the mortar cement, preferably during intergrinding of Portland cement in the mill. Cement compositions comprising the polymer and an air-entraining agent are also disclosed.
