  • Publication number: 20150005443
    Abstract: The present invention provides curable compositions comprising non-tin metal catalysts that accelerate the condensation curing of moisture-curable silicones/non-silicones. In particular, the present invention provides bismuth(III) sulfonate complexes that are particularly suitable as replacements for organotin in sealant and RTV formulations. In one embodiment, the present invention provides bismuth (III) camphorsulfonate and bismuth(III) methanesulfonate complexes. Further, these bismuth(III) sulfonate complexes are comparable or superior to organotin such as DBTDL, exhibit certain behavior in the presence of components that allow for tuning or adjusting the cure characteristics of the present compositions, and provide good adhesion and storage stability.

  • Publication number: 20150001322
    Abstract: A method for dispersing a filler having high agglomerating properties in a resin and a micro-dispersing mixer used in the method are provided. Further, a method for producing a sealing material that can avoid a defect caused by agglomerates of a filler (for example, carbon black) in an electronic material such as a semiconductor package, a masterbatch resin produced by the method, and a micro-dispersing mixer used in the method are provided. When a filler is dispersed in a molten resin composition to produce a filler-dispersed molten resin composition, a resin composition containing filler aggregates and a molten resin composition is preliminarily mixed by a mixing means, and, thereafter, the preliminarily mixed mixture is allowed to pass through the micro-dispersing mixer with a fine flow path to disperse the filler in a filler resin composition.

  • Publication number: 20140378582
    Abstract: The invention relates to a heat compression molding process for the manufacturing of composite material articles, the process comprising the steps of i) providing a mold (20) in which the negative shape (31, 32) of an article (30) to be manufactured is formed; ii) inserting into said mold (20) an SMC semi-finished product (10) comprising one or more sheets of composite material comprising a matrix of a heat-hardening resin and carbon fibers, the mold being pre-heated at a temperature suitable to allow the cure of said heat-hardening resin; iii) closing the mold (20) and carrying out a compression cycle in an autoclave according to a pre-defined time-pressure law; and iv) extracting the article (30), wherein the amount of SMC semi-finished product (10) inserted in the mold (20) is calculated by weighing on the basis of the volume of the article (30) to be manufactured.
