  • Patent number: 8133416
    Abstract: The ultraviolet shielding compound is highly transparent in the visible light spectrum and shields approximately 100% of ultraviolet A (UVA), ultraviolet B (UVB) and ultraviolet C (UVC) radiation. The ultraviolet shielding compound is formed from polyvinyl alcohol (PYA) doped with phosphotungstic acid (H3PW12O40). Preferably, the ratio of phosphotungstic acid to polyvinyl alcohol is 1. The ultraviolet shielding compound may be formed by first making a polymeric solution of polyvinyl alcohol dissolved in deionized water. Next, phosphotungstic acid is dissolved in deionized water to form an acidic solution. The acidic solution is added to the polymeric solution to form a mixture. The mixture is then thickened and cast. The cast mixture may then be dried to produce the ultraviolet shielding compound in the form of a flexible film.

  • Publication number: 20120046380
    Abstract: Oxidation resistant crosslinked ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is described, wherein at least two different additives in the manufacture synergistically increase the oxidation resistance of crosslinked UHMWPE. This allows the manufacture of oxidation resistant crosslinked UHMWPE using lower levels of additives and/or lower levels of crosslinking irradiation or chemicals. The lower levels of additives and/or crosslinking produce crosslinked UHMWPE having desired physical properties not possible without the synergistic interaction of the additives. This crosslinked UHMWPE may be used in medical prostheses such as in bearing components having desired physical properties such as wear resistance and oxidation resistance not possible without the synergistic interaction of the additives.

These polycyanates can be cured by trimerization in the presence of a suitable catalyst or by copolymerization with an epoxy resin. Epoxy resins can also be prepared from the composition comprising components (A) and (B) by reaction with an epihalohydrin such as epichlorohydrin and subsequent dehydrohalogenation with a basic acting compound such as sodium hydroxide.

  • Patent number: 4499010
    Abstract: Conductive paint comprises an organic solvent having dissolved and dispersed therein a binder containing a thermosetting resin and a hydroquinone derivative which is a product resulting from reaction between a hydroquinone (polyhydric phenol) and a fatty acid having 10 to 20 carbon atoms, added to the thermosetting resin, metal powder as a conductive material, and preferably a fatty acid derived from natural oils and fats and having 10 to 20 carbon atoms. This conductive paint exhibits characteristics not inferior to those of the conventional Ag conductive paint, such as low specific resistance, high moisture resistance and high heat resistance, and is much less expensive than the conventional Ag conductive paint.
