    Abstract: A durable substrate coating and a process of making include a resin master batch. The resin master batch can include ethylene propylene diene with a polymethylene backbone, mineral spirits, fillers, a de-tackifier, a curative, an activator component, and a metal dryer. The process can include adding the mineral spirits to: the ethylene propylene diene, a plasticizer, and the de-tackifier, and blending to form a solution. The process can include adding the fillers, a light stabilizer, a rheology modifier, and a pigment to the solution, forming a first mixture. The process can include adding another rheology modifier, another light stabilizer, an antioxidant, and a curative to the first mixture, forming a second mixture. The process can include mixing the second mixture to homogenously disperse each ingredient while maintaining a temperature of 60 degrees Celsius to prevent the mineral spirits from flashing.

  • Patent number: 8314164
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a curable rubber composition comprising an organic elastomer, a filler and at least one curing agent for the elastomer. Such curable rubber compositions are widely used in the production of cured rubber articles, such as tires, belts and hoses. The composition contains a branched silicone resin having Si-bonded hydroxyl groups or azo groups. This may lead to a reduction in the mixing energy required for processing, particularly in the energy required in the first (non-productive) mixing phase to give good dispersion of the filler in the organic elastomer. Use of the branched silicone resin can also accelerate cure (vulcanization), thus reducing the required cure time or reducing the amount of cure accelerator required.

  • Publication number: 20120059092
    Abstract: Fluid activatable adhesive compositions and activating fluid(s) for activating the adhesive composition are described herein. The adhesive compositions contain at least two polymers with different hydrophilicities. The hydrophilic polymer has quick tack when exposed to a hydrophilic solvent, such as water or other aqueous solvent, while the hydrophobic polymer provides strong adhesion to a paper or polymeric substrate. The adhesive composition may contain particulate fillers which enable fast exhaustion of the activation fluid out of the adhesive when applied to a substrate, thereby allowing the hydrophobic polymers of the adhesive composition to achieve strong adhesion of the liner-free label to the paper or polymeric substrate. The particulate fillers may also function as anti-blocking agents when liner-free label media are tightly wound in a roll.
