  • Publication number: 20090270546
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to gels that flow through an orifice. Specifically the invention relates to gels that are dispensed through a trigger spray nozzle or aerosol spray valve. Still more specifically, the invention relates to nonaquious gels containing polymers whose instantaneous viscosity reversibly decreases when the gel experiences shear loads. The invention includes spray gel compositions, methods of making spray gels and methods of dispensing gels whose viscosity exhibits an instantaneous temporary decrease in viscosity when the gel is subjected to shear force as happens when it flows through an orifice, such as a spray nozzle or aerosol valve.

  • Publication number: 20090270545
    Abstract: Thermoplastic polyolefins (TPOs) and/or thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) are blended with low molecular weight propylene-dominated copolymers to provide polymeric compositions with an improved balance between processability and toughness. The compositions have improved processability by facilitating the ease with which a TPO or TPV, usually difficult to melt process, can be processed at high line speeds, which in turn improves the formation of the composition into articles.
