  • Publication number: 20100184893
    Abstract: Processes for mixing a filler with a rubber blend containing at least one isoprene elastomer and one butadiene elastomer are provided. Preferably, the processes include the steps of: combining elastomers or a blend of elastomers, a carbon black and/or silica filler(s) and a quinone diimine antidegradant in a rubber composition; mixing the rubber composition for a viscosity-reducing effective period of time to reduce the viscosity of the composition; and discharging the mixed composition. The compositions are preferably discharged from the mixing vessel at or near a minimum viscosity occurring at a temperature of about 120-160° C.

  • Publication number: 20100159219
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods of making a negative pattern of carbon nanotubes or a polymerized carbon nanotube composite having an interpenetrating polymer network (IPN) by modifying the surfaces of the carbon nanotubes with polymerizable functional groups such as oxirane and anhydride groups and subjecting the surface-modified carbon nanotubes either to a photolithography process or to a heatcuring process. By virtue of the present invention, desired patterns of carbon nanotubes can be easily made on the surfaces of various substrates, and polymerized carbon nanotube composites improved in hardening properties can be made without additional polymers.

  • Patent number: 7528187
    Abstract: A spray-on ultra violet light absorbing composition for application on bird decoys and related bird hunting and bird watching apparatus, and the process for making the composition. The composition is made in three phases each separately mixed and thereafter combined. In phase A, a thickener, optionally a preservative, a pH adjuster and distilled water are combined and mixed. In phase B, a disperser, a solvent, a film forming polymer and a pH buffer are combined and mixed. The mixtures of phase A and phase B are heated, combined and mixed. In phase C, a UV absorbent, a wetting agent, emulsifiers, and optionally a surface smoother, are combined and mixed. The mixture of phase C is heated and added to the heated phase A and phase B mixture. The mixture is thereafter cooled, diluted and homogenized.
