  • Publication number: 20150099818
    Abstract: A two part composition comprising a Part A and a Part B, wherein Part A comprises an oligomer having both isocyanate and acrylate moieties, and an organic peroxide capable of generating free radicals upon decomposition; and Part B comprises a polyol, and a catalyst that can decompose the organic peroxide. In one form, the two part composition of a Part A and a Part B are in admixture. By combining Part A and Part B the isocyanate moieties react with the polyol to produce a combination of a urethane acrylate oligomer, organic peroxide and the catalyst. Then in either order, the combination is exposed to sufficient actinic radiation to polymerize at least a portion of the urethane acrylate oligomer; and the catalyst decomposes the organic peroxide thus generating free radicals, which free radicals polymerize at least a portion of the urethane acrylate oligomer.

  • Publication number: 20140194553
    Abstract: Electrically conductive vulcanised epoxidised natural rubber [ENR]-carbon black blends can be produced by using either internal mechanical mixing method or open milling method. These two methods are commercially friendly due to their practicability and high production rate. The addition of vulcanisation system, either sulfur or peroxide type does not affect the electrical properties of the vulcanised blends. All vulcanized blends prepared in this innovation show useful electrical properties with electrical volume resistances as low as the order of 101 ohms. All these vulcanised blends also exhibit good mechanical properties with tensile strengths up to 26.0 MPa and Dunlop rebound resiliencies of 14.0% (i.e. high damping property). The black colour level of all these vulcanised blends is adjustable. As a result of good electrical and mechanical properties (especially high damping property), they have good potential to be used for antistatic footwear manufacturing and application.

  • Patent number: 8609005
    Abstract: [Problems] To provide a stretched film of an addition polymer consisting of norbornene compounds favorable for use in manufacturing steps of electric insulating parts and optical parts that exhibits excellent film stability, does not suffer from coloration and has a low linear expansion coefficient. [Means for Solving Problems] A stretched film of an addition polymer consisting of norbornene compounds produced by stretching a film of the addition polymer consisting of norbornene compounds and having a linear expansion coefficient of at most 50 ppm/° C. The draw ratio is preferably from 1.2 times to 10 times. The stretched film is preferably a non-crosslinked film. A method for producing the stretched film comprises stretching a film of the addition polymer consisting of norbornene compounds at least in one direction in an inert gas atmosphere within a temperature range of the glass transition temperature (Tg) thereof ±50° C.

  • Patent number: 8575242
    Abstract: Coating of organic and inorganic pigments with acrylic resins, comprising a chemical compound consisting of particles of solid organic and inorganic substances, both defined as pigments, in that they are substances which absorb a fraction of the light and reflect the complementary part thereof, coated with acrylic and, optionally, aldehyde and/or ketone resins. The latter are deposited on the surface of the pigment by means of a process which envisages melting of the resin, consequent wetting and coating of the entire surface of the pigment with the resin in the melted state, the consequent cooling and subsequent step of grinding by means of mechanical systems operating in temperature conditions lower than 20° C., by means of cryogenic processes or granulate by means of a wet method with a water jet cutting action and separation of the granulates by the water on a vibrating screen and then dried on a spiral elevator.
