  • Patent number: 9670325
    Abstract: Polyimides containing a backbone with at least one nanoparticle component and made from oligomers having endcaps that are difunctional or a mix of di- and monofunctionality are provided. The endcaps may be nadic or phenylethynyl. The backbone may be wholly inorganic or made from a mixture of inorganic and organic groups. The oligomers may be created in-situ using standard polymerization of monomeric reactants chemistry using a solvent or may be provided as a pre-imidized compound that may be either a solid or liquid. It is believed that the nanoparticle component of the polymer backbone provides superior thermo-oxidative stability verses unmodified organic backbones. It is further believed that providing difunctional or a mixture of di- and monofunctional endcaps allows for increased crosslinking to provide improved strength and stiffness verses wholly monofunctional endcapped oligomers for polyimides. The nanoparticle is part of the backbone of the polymer and not solely a pendant group.

    Abstract: Methods of on-line control of molecular weight in continuous solid state polymerization processes. The solid state polymerization process can be a polyester process or to a polyamide process, and more specifically a poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) or a poly(butylene terephthalate) (PBT) or a nylon 6,6 continuous solid-state polymerization (SSP) process. An in-line viscometer melts and measures the molecular weight of the SSP resin and adjusts one or more of the process variables, i.e. reactor time, inert gas purity and inert gas temperature to maintain a constant resin molecular weight.

    Abstract: A method for preparing polymethylene polyphenyl polycarbamate is provided. The method includes dissolving phenylcarbamate in a water-immiscible organic solvent to form a solution A, formulating an aqueous acid catalyst solution to form a solution B, forming a reaction system comprising an organic phase and an aqueous phase by firstly adding a methylating reagent to the solution B and then mixing the solution A and the solution B, wherein the organic phase comprises phenylcarbamate and the aqueous phase comprises the acid catalyst and the methylating reagent. The method further includes reacting the reaction system under stirring at a reaction temperature of 30° C. to 200° C. and a reaction pressure of 0.05 MPa to 5 MPa to produce a polymethylene polyphenyl polycarbamate product mixture dissolved in the organic phase, and separating the polymethylene polyphenyl polycarbamate product mixture by allowing the organic phase and the aqueous phase to stand still and stratify.

  • Publication number: 20150112019
    Abstract: A thermoplastic composition that comprises a low-naphthenic, thermotropic liquid crystalline polymer blended with a combination of flow modifiers is provided. More particularly, one of the flow modifiers is a hydroxy-functional compound that contains or more hydroxyl functional groups. Without intending to be limited by theory, it is believed that the hydroxyl functional groups can react with the polymer chain to shorten its length and thus reduce melt viscosity. Aromatic dicarboxylic acids are also employed as a flow modifier in the thermoplastic composition. Again, without intending to be limited by theory, it is believed that such acids can combine smaller chains of the polymer together after they have been cut by hydroxy-functional compounds. This helps maintain the mechanical properties of the composition even after its melt viscosity has been reduced.

  • Patent number: 8552103
    Abstract: Filled polyamide molding materials, in particular polyamide molding materials with medium filler content, are producible from a polyamide blend and for example by compounding with chopped or endless fibers on two-screw extruders, and have a combination of reduced water absorption and good mechanical properties, which results in very good dimensional stability and reduced variation of the electrical properties of the produced molded part, such as an antenna housings of stationary or mobile communication devices. These thermoplastic polyamide molding materials are suitable for manufacturing molded parts and other semi-finished or finished parts, for example by extrusion, injection molding, pressing, direct process or direct compounding, respectively, wherein the compounded polyamide molding material is directly processed by injection molding or other shaping methods.

  • Publication number: 20130197151
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a process for preparing a linear or branched amine-modified thermoplastic resin with high flowability using as starting materials a linear or branched polyester and a primary or secondary aliphatic amine. The process does not require that the amine and polyester be combined in a liquid organic solvent during the process, and can be performed readily at ambient pressure. The amine-modified resins can be extruded and pelletized using normal operating conditions, making this process a versatile option for achieving a wide variety of viscosities in a simple, low cost, continuous operation.

  • Publication number: 20130122758
    Abstract: A thermoplastic composition for use in a fine pitch electrical connector is provided. The thermoplastic composition contains a liquid crystalline polymer and a plurality of fibers. The volume average length of the fibers in the thermoplastic composition is selectively controlled according to the present invention so that it is within a certain range, such as from about 80 to about 250 micrometers. The fibers also have a narrow length distribution. That is, at least about 70% by volume of the fibers have a length within a certain range. Through the use of a liquid crystalline polymer and fibers of a certain weight average length and narrow length distribution, the present inventors have discovered that the resulting thermoplastic composition is able to achieve a desirable combination of strength and flowability, which enables it to be uniquely suited for the walls of a fine pitch connector.
