  • Publication number: 20040110894
    Abstract: This invention relates to the reversible protection of hydroxy-silane functional groups by acid cleavable protecting groups. The development of reversible protecting groups greatly enhances the current utility of silanes while introducing further novel applications. For instance, reversibly protected silanes are of particular value in applications where room temperature cure and/or adhesion is of value, such as coatings, high resolution imaging, caulks, adhesives, sealents, gaskets, and silicones. Reversibly protected silanes can also be beneficially used in reticulating agents, and in sizing agents, tires, and release coatings. The incorporation of reversibly protected silanes into coating resins is of particular value. The reversibly protected silane can be incorporated into the coating resin by polymerizing a monomer containing the reversibly protected silane into the resin or by post-addition into the coating formulation.

  • Patent number: 6569531
    Abstract: An additive-containing resin molded article which suffers from little exudation or vaporization of an additive and sustains the effect of the additive for a long period of time and in which reductions in various physical properties due to molecular weight reduction of a polyester resin are suppressed, and a process for producing the same are provided. When a polyester resin 5 is heat-melted and molded into a prescribed shape by means of an extruder 1, etc., a bi- or multi-functional additive 6 having at least one of a functional hydroxyl group, carboxyl group, amino group, and ester bond is added and allowed to react with the polymer molecules of the molten polyester resin 5 to obtain an additive-containing resin molded article 50 in which the additive 6 is bonded to the polymer molecules through an ester linkage or an amide linkage.

  • Publication number: 20030073771
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for improving the shelf life of a hindered phenol antioxidant comprising the step of intimately mixing the hindered phenol antioxidant with a sulfur-containing peroxide decomposer. The inventors have discovered that mixing the peroxide decomposer with the hindered phenol antioxidant reduces the tendency of hindered phenols to yellow with age. This increases the desirability of the hindered phenol because it will not impart color to polymer systems. The present invention also relates to a composition produced from the process described above, and stabilized compositions and additive packages containing the composition produced from the above-described process.

  • Patent number: 6534578
    Abstract: A refrigerant hose for an air conditioner has an inner wall layer formed of a laminate of an inner resin layer and an outer rubber layer bonded by its vulcanization to the resin layer. The rubber layer is of a composition comprising butyl rubber, an adhesive material based on resorcinol and a vulcanizing agent based on an alkylphenol-formaldehyde resin, and having a bromine content of at least 0.5% by weight. The hose having the inner wall layer surrounded by a reinforcing layer and an outer wall layer exhibits a high adhesive strength even at an elevated temperature between its refrigerant-impermeable resin layer and its water-impermeable rubber layer.
