  • Patent number: 9034952
    Abstract: Aqueous binder compositions with reduced rates of salt precipitation are described. The compositions may include a carbohydrate and a sequestrant for sequestering one or more multivalent ions (e.g., Ca2+, Mg2+, Ba2+, Al3+, Fe2+, Fe3+, etc.). The sequestrant reduces a precipitation rate for the multivalent ions from the aqueous binder composition. Methods of reducing salt precipitation from a binder composition are also described. The methods may include the steps of providing an aqueous binder solution having one or more carbohydrates. They may also include adding a sequestrant for one or more multivalent ions to the aqueous binder solution. The sequestrant reduces a precipitation rate for the multivalent ions from the binder composition.

The alkyd resin may be modified by incorporating polyoxyalkylene glycol segments into the backbone of the alkyd resin. In one embodiment the alkyd resin is derived from the reaction of at least one natural oil and an acid and/or acid anhydride and polyhydric alcohol. The resulting shear stable coating vehicle can be combined with a pigment under high shear conditions to provide a paint composition.

  • Patent number: 8013042
    Abstract: A multiple particle (e.g., a spherical particle) comprising an organic solid component (A) containing a plurality of organic solid materials (e.g., polymers) is produced by eluting a water-soluble auxiliary component (B) containing at least an oligosaccharide (B1) from a composition having a disperse system, in which a particulate dispersed phase comprising the organic solid component (A) is dispersed in a matrix comprising the auxiliary component (B). The organic solid materials may be different in affinity relative to the auxiliary component (B) from each other. The particle may have a core-shell structure which comprises a core containing a first organic solid material (e.g., a hydrophobic polymer) and a shell containing a second organic solid material (e.g., a hydrophilic polymer) immiscible with the first organic solid material.
