  • Patent number: 8920682
    Abstract: The disclosure generally relates to a dispersion of nanoparticles in a liquid medium. The liquid medium is suitably water-based and further includes an ionic liquid-based stabilizer in the liquid medium to stabilize the dispersion of nanoparticles therein. The stabilizer can be polymeric or monomeric and generally includes a moiety with at least one quaternary ammonium cation from a corresponding ionic liquid. The dispersion suitably can be formed by shearing or otherwise mixing a mixture/combination of its components. The dispersions can be used to form nanoparticle composite films upon drying or otherwise removing the liquid medium carrier, with the stabilizer providing a nanoparticle binder in the composite film. The films can be formed on essentially any desired substrate and can impart improved electrical conductivity and/or thermal conductivity properties to the substrate.

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.

  • Publication number: 20130171438
    Abstract: A composition for colloidal crystals including core-shell particles and a monomer having a particular structure. The core-shell particles constitute 25% to 65% by weight of the composition, and the monomer constitutes 35% to 75% by weight of the composition. The core has an average particle size from 50 to 900 nm. Each particle includes a core and a shell. The shell is formed of a linear polymer composed of at least one of styrene and a monomer having a particular structure. One end of the linear polymer is covalently bonded to the core. The refractive index of the core (n(core)) satisfies the following formulae: wherein R1 denotes a hydrogen atom or a methyl group, and y is 0 or 1, n(shell)?n(core)?0.07, n(shell) denoting the refractive index of the shell, and n(B)?n(core)?0.07, n(B) denoting the refractive index of the monomer (B1) after curing.

  • Publication number: 20130130025
    Abstract: Disclosed are blended latex dispersions which can be used as binders in paper coating compositions. Such latex dispersions comprise a first copolymer of a vinyl ester of an alkanoic acid having from 1 to 13 carbon atoms and ethylene; and a second copolymer of (i) styrene and butadiene, (ii) styrene, butadiene and acrylonitrile, or (iii) styrene and an acrylic monomer, wherein the first and second copolymers are colloidally dispersed in an aqueous medium comprising a surfactant. The paper coating compositions containing latex dispersion binders of this type preferably exhibit especially desirable coating strength as quantified by the Dry Pick Values which such compositions provide.
