  • Publication number: 20110190431
    Abstract: Iron contaminants are associated with a beta-dicarbonyl in an isocyanate composition that includes polymeric methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (PMDI). The association of the iron contaminant and the beta-dicarbonyl is thought to minimize a catalytic effect of the iron contaminant when the isocyanate composition is reacted with a polyol to form a polyurethane. The iron contaminant is associated with the beta-dicarbonyl in a method that includes the step of providing the isocyanate composition and the step of combining the beta-dicarbonyl and the isocyanate composition. The isocyanate composition is included in a polyurethane system and typically includes the association product of the iron contaminant and the beta-dicarbonyl.

  • Patent number: 7879930
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a melt blend of a base polymer, an oxidizable organic polymer, a transition metal salt catalyst and a colorant that does not completely deactivate the catalyzed oxidation. A preferred colorant, yields in an article made from the polymer melt blend a Catalyst Deactivation Factor (CDF) of less than about 0.25, preferably less than 0.15, more preferably less than 0.1, and most preferred less than 0.05. The present invention also comprises a colored monolayer article having the described CDF, such as a film, thermoformed tray, or blow molded container, that has active oxygen scavenging properties. The colorant, after melt blending a base polymer, an oxidizable organic polymer, a transition metal catalyst, does not increase the binding energy of the transition metal catalyst ion by more than 1 eV.

  • Publication number: 20100234504
    Abstract: A thermochromic ink composition comprises at least one thermochromic optical-state change material, at least one thermally responsive pH modifier, and at least one base and at least one binder material. The quantity of the thermally responsive pH modifier is less than or equal to about 0.25 milli moles based on the amount of optical-state change material. The ink composition is capable of transforming from a first optical state to a second optical state upon exposure to a thermal stimulus. The thermochromic ink composition may comprise a nitro dye. A thermochromic coating composition formed using the thermochromic ink composition is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 7750069
    Abstract: At least one resin component which is selected from a biodegradable resin and a plant-based resin, and a flame retardancy-imparting component are kneaded to obtain a resin composition having flame retardancy. This resin composition makes it possible to apply the environment-friendly resin such as the biodegradable resin and the plant-based resin, for example, polylactic acid and polybutylene succinate to exterior bodies of home appliances. Particularly, in the case where polylactic acid is used with the acetylacetonatoiron as the flame-retardant component, a resin composition having excellent flame retardancy can be provided as a non-halogen material.
