    Abstract: Stable, high performance polymer compositions including polybenzimidazole (PBI) and a melamine-formaldehyde polymer, such as methylated, poly(melamine-co-formaldehyde), for forming structures such as films, fibers and bulky structures. The polymer compositions may be formed by combining polybenzimidazole with the melamine-formaldehyde polymer to form a precursor. The polybenzimidazole may be reacted and/or intertwined with the melamine-formaldehyde polymer to form the polymer composition. For example, a stable, free-standing film having a thickness of, for example, between about 5 ?m and about 30 ?m may be formed from the polymer composition. Such films may be used as gas separation membranes and may be submerged into water for extended periods without crazing and cracking. The polymer composition may also be used as a coating on substrates, such as metal and ceramics, or may be used for spinning fibers. Precursors for forming such polymer compositions are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 8133933
    Abstract: Phenolic resin binder systems for sand molds, used in metal casting, which improve the quality of thermally reclaimed sand, are described. The substantial or complete elimination of calcium compounds (e.g., calcium stearate and calcium hydroxide, conventionally employed as a mold lubricant and a resin curing catalyst, respectively) allows the thermally reclaimed sand to be reused over multiple thermal reclamation cycles without the adverse effects previously encountered.

  • Publication number: 20110143120
    Abstract: Amino-formaldehyde resins and methods for making amino-formaldehyde resins are provided herein. In one embodiment, the amino-formaldehyde resins are blends of at least a first amino-formaldehyde resin having a first molar ratio of constituents and at least a second amino-formaldehyde resin having a second molar ratio of constituents different than the first molar ratio of constituents. The first amino-formaldehyde resin may be a melamine-urea-formaldehyde resin. The second amino-formaldehyde resin may be a urea-formaldehyde resin, which may optionally include melamine. The blend of the amino-formaldehyde resins may be used in the manufacture of articles, such as composite boards.
