  • Patent number: 10201638
    Abstract: A method for forming a material in an in situ medical device by initiating polymerization of water soluble polymer precursors in an aqueous solution during or after transport of the polymerizable solution from its storage container to a space inside the in situ medical device is described. The stored aqueous solution with water soluble precursors lacks a free radical initiator which, in a powder form, is introduced into the aqueous solution during or after its transport into the space inside the in situ medical device. This storage and delivery system provides greater stability to the stored aqueous solution, allowing it to be stored at ambient temperature and providing extended shelf life over the solutions used in existing in situ polymerization systems. The flexibility to store and deliver/transport only one aqueous solution, instead of requiring the use of two different solutions, is also a benefit.

  • Patent number: 9828510
    Abstract: The present invention is a composition comprising a solution or a dispersion of polymer particles, a sorbate ester or sorbamide curing agent, and a cure modulating additive for the curing agent. The curing agent is a sorbic acid ester or a sorbamide and the cure modulating agent is a reagent capable of accelerating or attenuating the rate of cure of the curing agent. The control of cure kinetics is important for speeding up cure rates where rates are too slow or by reducing cure rates where curing too rapidly results in undesirable color formation.

  • Patent number: 9790374
    Abstract: Water-borne cross-linking polymeric compositions and related embodiments, such as methods of making and using the compositions, as well as products formed with said compositions are described. For example, the water-borne composition may comprise polymers incorporating cross-linking functionality such as, but not limited to, carbonyl or epoxy functionality, and a blocked cross-linking agent, for example, a hydrazone. The cross-linking functionality does not react with the blocked cross-linking agent; however, the blocked cross-linking agent is capable of reacting with the alternative form cross-linking agent such as, but not limited to, a hydrazide, to yield a cross-linked polymer. The alternative form cross-linking agent may be formed in an equilibrium reaction including the blocked cross-linking agent.

  • Patent number: 8957130
    Abstract: Styrene-acrylic dispersants for use in pigment dispersions have lower viscosities than benchmark formulations such as nitrocellulose, dimer-acid based polyamides, and thermoplastic polyurethanes, prepared under otherwise identical conditions. Lower viscosities allow for the preparation of similarly viscous dispersions and inks with the styrene-acrylics when compared to traditional dispersants, at either (a) lower solvent levels, or if solvent levels are to be maintained, (b) higher pigment and solids loadings.
