Three Or More Carboxylic Acid Ester Groups Patents (Class 524/311)
  • Patent number: 10774208
    Abstract: The invention relates to blends containing polymers of vinylidene fluoride, having low ductile-brittle transition temperatures and having excellent low temperature impact properties while maintaining the positive aspects of unmodified vinylidene fluoride-containing polymers. The blends of this invention are produced by adding a core-shell impact modifier (CSIM) comprised of a polysiloxane core and a shell compatible with vinylidene fluoride-containing polymer. The blends are further characterized by the presence of a heterogeneous copolymer composition comprised of two or more distinct phases and/or at least one flame and smoke suppressant. The preparation of these new blends can be done by conventional thermoplastic compounding techniques such as twin screw compounding; alternatively, the CSIM can be introduced earlier, such as in the latex.

  • Publication number: 20140363668
    Abstract: The present invention provides an aqueous dispersion type adhesive which is excellent in adhesion and is accurately ejected through a nozzle without fouling the nozzle when the adhesive is applied by a nozzle coater, and a paper product obtainable by applying the aqueous dispersion type adhesive. An aqueous dispersion type adhesive including an ethylene-vinyl acetate based modified emulsion and a plasticizer, the plasticizer containing an acetyl group-containing compound, is excellent in adhesive strength and does not cause fouling of a nozzle when the adhesive is ejected through the nozzle of a nozzle coater. When the acetyl group-containing compound contains triacetin, adhesion between a paper and a metal foil is improved, and thus fouling of a nozzle is less likely to occur. Moreover, when the ethylene-vinyl acetate based modified emulsion contains a modification having a carboxyl group attached thereto, fouling of a nozzle is much less likely to occur, preferably.

Such plasticizers can be phthalate-free and provide outstanding properties including a suitable melting or pour point, glass transition temperature, low volatility, increased compatibility, increased hydrolytic stability, and excellent low temperature properties in a range of polymeric resins.

  • Patent number: 8476350
    Abstract: Provided are compositions, processes for making, and processes for using triglycerides as plasticizers. Triglyceride plasticizers can be produced by recovery of linear or branched C4 to C10 aldehydes from a hydroformylation product, oxidation to the acid with oxygen and/or air, recovery of the resulting acid, and esterification with glycerol, wherein the total carbon number of the triester groups is from 20 to 25 for greater than or equal to 45 wt % of the plasticizer. Such plasticizers can be phthalate-free and provide outstanding properties including a suitable melting or glass transition or pour point, low volatility, increased compatibility, and excellent low temperature properties in a range of polymeric resins.
