    Abstract: Disclosed are a ?-crystal form nucleating agent composition for polypropylene and an application thereof. The composition is prepared by proportionally mixing barium tetrahydrophthalate, calcium tetrahydrophthalate and the like with adjuvants, such as hydrotalcite or calcium carbonate. The composition has better functions than a single-component ?-nucleating agent. The impact strength of polypropylene subjected to nucleation modification by the ?-crystal form nucleating agent composition can be improved by up to 6 times, and the heat distortion temperature is improved by about 10° C. to 20° C.; in addition, while the impact strength is improved, the flexural modulus of polypropylene can be improved, namely, the rigidity of polypropylene is improved. Therefore, the mechanical and thermal properties of polypropylene are improved.

  • Patent number: 8841370
    Abstract: A rubber compound based on propylene-oxide rubber SKPO, including sulfur, stearic acid, zinc oxide, thiuram disulphide, carbon black P-803. The compound is characterized by replacement of 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (kaptax), as well as fluoroplastic F-4, with dibenzothiazyl disulfide (altax), phenyl-?-naphthylamine (neozone D), dibutoxyethyl adipate, and ultrafine polytetrafluoroethylene (UPTFE). Such replacement of ingredients allows for significant improvement of wear resistance, frost resistance, and relative elongation. Additionally, relatively less UPTFE (compared to fluoroplastic F-4) can be used to achieve similar beneficial results, significantly reducing the cost of manufacturing the material.

The compound is characterized by replacement of 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (kaptax), as well as fluoroplastic F-4, with dibenzothiazyl disulfide (altax), phenyl-?-naphthylamine (neozone D), dibutoxyethyl adipate, and natural bentonites. Use of a rubber compound with the proposed composition increases the service life of rubber seals during their operation in sealing devices, due to higher frost resistance and a lower residual compressive strain value. Also, the compound can be manufactured by a simpler method compared to modern production technology, eliminating the stage of joint mechanical activation of zeolite and dibutyl phthalate.

A process for treating a metal surface includes contacting the surface with such an aqueous composition. The compositions and processes were found to have further benefits in comparison to the zinc phosphate metal pretreatment thought to be the standard in the industry. Preferably, the pH of the compositions is alkaline, which has been found to improve the efficacy of a silane as a surface treatment to improve uniformity of paint adhesion. By operating in the alkaline pH range, it was found that flash rusting and/or blush rust were significantly reduced.
