A method including nucleating and growing crystalline needles/rods from the surface of a particle in the presence of a solution of calcium, sulfur, and aluminum such as calcium sulfoaluminate, lime and calcium sulfate is described. One example is the radial growth of ettringite needles on the surface of fly ash particles in calcium sulfoaluminate-based cement paste and concrete.

  • Patent number: 8470920
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a polyolefin composition for an interior sheet/film. The polyolefin composition of the present invention for an interior sheet comprises 70 to 99 wt % of polyolefin and 1 to 30 wt % of modified polyethylene terephthalate having a melting point of 130 to 180° C. The polyolefin composition of the present invention is environmentally friendly and has good physical properties such as workability, printing characteristics, and adhesiveness. In addition, sheets having various thicknesses can be produced by extrusion without having to stretch the sheets, and thus the sheets can be used separately or in combination in various application fields.

  • Patent number: 8367193
    Abstract: The invention relates in one aspect to a post-formulation concentrated nanocomposite dispersion containing an invisible marker dye. The dispersion typically includes a silicate filler and a matrix polymer dispersed in an aqueous medium as well. The dispersions form optically transparent barrier films wherein the dye is effective to indicate film thickness on a substrate. Specific embodiments of this invention include a nanocomposite coating formulation designed to provide transparent high barrier coatings at thicknesses from 1 to 10 microns that include a near infrared (NIR) or infrared (IR) dye that enables rapid measurement of coating thickness and uniformity. The preferred dye imparts no observable color or appearance change, and thus can also function as an identifier for the coating.

  • Publication number: 20120263961
    Abstract: The present invention provides a water-based coating system that can be used to form durable, abrasion resistant, corrosion resistant, protective barriers on a wide range of substrates. The coating system is particularly effective for protecting metal-containing substrates, such as intermodal cargo containers, against corrosion. As an overview, the present invention provides water-based primer compositions suitable to form primer coats and topcoats on substrates. Desirably, the primer incorporates one or more chlorinated resins for excellent corrosion protection. These polymers not only provide excellent corrosion protection and but also show excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrate materials. The system also includes topcoat compositions enhance compatibility and adhesion to the primer and to provide enhanced application.
