  • Patent number: 7759412
    Abstract: A tire puncture sealant including a urethane emulsion, an acrylic emulsion or a polyolefin emulsion, and an antifreezing agent has a comparatively low viscosity and an excellent storage stability while showing sealing properties equivalent to those of a conventional tire puncture sealant. A tire puncture sealant including a synthetic resin emulsion and an antifreezing agent, and having a hydrogen ion exponent of 5.5 to 8.5 has a less pungent odor and hardly causes corrosion of steel cord. A tire puncture sealant including a chloroprene emulsion and an antifreezing agent and having a hydrogen ion exponent of less than 9.0 has a comparatively low viscosity and a less odor while showing sealing properties equivalent to those of a conventional tire puncture sealant.

  • Patent number: 7696270
    Abstract: The present invention is method of manufacturing a wax dispersion. The method includes forming a solution of a solvent and a dispersant, the dispersant being a polymer of partially or fully hydrogenated styrene butadiene wherein the styrene to butadiene ratio is from 20 to 90. Wax is added to the solution to form a slurry. The particle size of the wax is reduced through communition of the slurry. The wax dispersion can be sued for the manufacture of toner particles.
