  • Patent number: 7348373
    Abstract: Water absorption resistant polyimide pastes (or solutions), are particularly useful to make electronic screen printable pastes and the electronic components made from these pastes. A group of soluble polyimides and their solvents were discovered to be particularly resistant to moisture absorption. These polyimide solutions optionally contain polyimides also containing cross-linkable monomers and/or thermal cross-linking agents. In addition, these polyimide pastes may optionally contain adhesion promoting agents, blocked isocyanates, metals, metal oxides, and other inorganic fillers. The polyimide pastes (or solutions) of the present invention have a polyimide with a glass transition temperature greater than 250° C., have a water absorption factor of less than 2%, and a have a positive solubility measurement.

  • Patent number: 6737469
    Abstract: The present invention is a method of incorporating a water insoluble organic chemical into a styrene-butadiene rubber latex dispersion and the resulting styrene-butadiene rubber latex dispersion. A styrene-butadiene rubber latex dispersion is provided comprising an aqueous phase and a disperse phase, with the disperse phase including particles of styrene-butadiene rubber. An organic solvent that is miscible in water and the water insoluble organic chemical are added together to the styrene-butadiene rubber latex dispersion. The addition of the water-miscible organic solvent allows the water insoluble organic chemical to pass from the aqueous phase into the disperse phase thus limiting separation of the water insoluble organic chemical from the latex dispersion. The resulting SBR latex has increased properties over conventional latices that use the same amount of the water insoluble organic chemical but that do not include the water-miscible organic solvent.

    Abstract: The invention is directed to resin coating, adhesive, and cement compositions comprising styrenic copolymers and a solvent comprised of a terpene and certain high evaporation rate organic solvents. The high evaporation rate terpene co-solvents reduce the drying times of applied coatings and enhance the character of the ultimately applied coating in the formation of high adhesion bonding with molded elastomeric styrene copolymer surface substrates. The invention is also directed to a method of applying the instant coatings to substrate surfaces.
