  • Patent number: 10696780
    Abstract: In developing epoxy resin compositions used as an adhesive for structure (structural adhesive) required to have adhesive properties, if each component is increased to further enhance the adhesive properties such as shear bond strength and peel strength, this causes problems, for example, as follows. The viscosity becomes so high that the workability deteriorates. Hence, the added amount has to be limited. Moreover, the cured product becomes excessively flexible, so that the shear bond strength deteriorates. An epoxy resin composition contains the following components (A) to (E), where the component (A) does not include the component (C): the component (A): an epoxy resin; the component (B): a blocked urethane resin; the component (C): a rubber-modified epoxy resin; the component (D): rubber particles; and the component (E): a latent curing agent.

  • Patent number: 10249821
    Abstract: Design of side chains yielding highly amphiphilic conjugated polymers is proven to be an effective and general method to access lyotropic liquid crystalline mesophases, allowing greater control over crystalline morphology and improving transistor performance. The general strategy enables variations in structure and interactions that impact alignment and use of liquid crystalline alignment methods. Specifically, solvent-polymer interactions are harnessed to facilitate the formation of high quality polymer crystals in solution. Crystallinity developed in solution is then transferred to the solid state, and thin films of donor-acceptor copolymers cast from lyotropic solutions exhibit improved crystalline order in both the alkyl and ?-stacking directions. Due to this improved crystallinity, transistors with active layers cast from lyotropic solutions exhibit a significant improvement in carrier mobility compared to those cast from isotropic solution.

  • Patent number: 8829096
    Abstract: An upright column is packed with particles of a first material so the particles touch one another and a network of voids is defined between the particles. The network will be substantially continuous. A second material is then introduced into the column so the second material penetrates the network and fills the voids. The mixture of first and second materials is then consolidated using heat to melt the first or second material, while the other one of the first or second material remains in a solid state and acts as a space holder. Thereafter, the material which acts as the space holder may be removed thereby to leave a substantially continuous porous network defined by the material which was melted. It is found that, by use of the method, a substantially continuous network of the material which is melted can be formed and that the other material can readily be removed and/or is more easily removed compared to if a mixture of first and second materials was formed prior to packing in a column or mold.

  • Publication number: 20140249260
    Abstract: The invention is directed to elastomeric polymer materials having controllable swellable properties and to the use of such materials. The invention provides an elastomer composition that comprises an elastomer matrix and a precursor for a swellable compound, which precursor has limited solubility in a fluid such as water and which may be converted into a compound that is soluble in said fluid such as water. The compositions of the invention may be used in a process that comprises bringing the composition to a desired location and converting said precursor into a fluid-soluble compound, while allowing said composition to be in contact with said fluid, prior to, during and/or after said converting of said precursor.

  • Publication number: 20140228452
    Abstract: Hydroxypolyamides, hydroxypolyamide products, and post-hydroxypolyamides are disclosed as gel forming agents. Hydroxypolyamides and post-hydroxypolyamides are prepared from known methods. Hydroxypolyamide products are produced from a modified polymerization procedure which utilizes strong base for deprotonation of ammonium salts from the esterification of stoichiometrically equivalent polyacid:polyamine salts. The hydroxypolyamide products are capable of gel formation at lower concentrations than hydroxypolyamides and post-hydroxypolyamides from the known methods of preparation, and are therefore superior gel forming agents.
