  • Patent number: 8785523
    Abstract: A flame retardant additive includes red phosphorus adsorbed into a porous carrier. The carrier may be mixed with white phosphorus above its melting point (41° C.), so that liquid phosphorus is pulled into the pores of the carrier by capillary action. The phosphorus-loaded carrier may be heated above 250° C. to convert the white phosphorus to red phosphorus. The resulting red phosphorus-loaded carrier may retain flame retardant activity, and may also be protected from the environment for easier handling and formulation. By employing a carrier of a suitably small particle size, it is practical to incorporate the flame retardant red phosphorus-loaded carrier in thin films.

  • Publication number: 20140066547
    Abstract: Claimed is a cationic copolymer and also its use as an admixture agent for building product systems, especially based on calcium sulfate. The copolymers of the invention effectuate accelerated setting behavior in clay-containing as well as non-clay-containing gypsums and they enable uncurtailed water reduction performance by dispersant agents used at the same time with the copolymers. The clay fractions in the gypsum system are masked by the cationic copolymer, and so the building product mixture exhibits properties of a building product mixture not containing clay. The copolymers are used as a formulation and also together with retarders.
