  • Patent number: 10435302
    Abstract: A manufacturing method of carbon nanotube conductive microspheres, which can simplify the process, reduce the process, save cost, and reduce the impact of thermal mismatching, to ensure the conductive properties of conductive microspheres, and not pollute the environment. The carbon nanotubes are mixed in the polymer microspheres when the styrene monomer, the crosslinking agent and the initiator have a crosslinking reaction to form the polymer microspheres with a method of spray-granulation. Only one step is needed to prepare the conductive microspheres with carbon nanotube as the conductive medium, which can simplify the process, reduce the process, save cost. With mixing the carbon nanotube inside the polymer microspheres, the thermal mismatching between the carbon nanotubes and the resin can be illuminated, to ensure the conductive properties of conductive microspheres. Furthermore, the entire preparing process has no heavy metal salts; the bio-toxicity is reduced and no environmental pollution.

  • Publication number: 20140106124
    Abstract: A process for making a colored composite pavement structure comprising silylated glass aggregate particles and a polymeric binder composition is disclosed. Systems and methods are also disclosed for providing a colored composite material that cures into a pavement structure. In one embodiment, a colorant concentrate is provided by combining an inorganic colorant with a portion of a first component of a polymeric binder composition. The colorant concentrate can then be combined with the first and second components of the polymeric binder composition to provide a colored polymeric binder composition. The colored polymeric binder composition may then be applied to silylated glass aggregate particles to provide a colored composite material that cures into a pavement structure.

  • Patent number: 8697213
    Abstract: A photodegradable plastic is described, comprising cellulose esters and also, if appropriate, additives. A particular characterizing feature of this photodegradable plastic is that it comprises a dispersed photocatalytic carbon-modified titanium dioxide. Comparative experiments show that this photodegradable plastic exhibits a surprisingly high increase in photocatalytic degradability when compared with products in which a conventional or other modified titanium dioxide is used. This improvement is apparent in particular in use of the photodegradable plastic according to the invention when it is further processed to give moldings. The photodegradable plastic can, for example, first be further processed to give a filter tow. This can be used to produce filter rods, and these can then be used to produce filter plugs for filter-tip cigarettes.

  • Patent number: 8597790
    Abstract: The invention provides vulcanizable rubber compound having improved tensile mechanical and dynamic viscoelastic properties. The compounds are formed by mixing an elastomer, containing unsaturated carbon-carbon bonds in its molecular structure, with a reinforcing inorganic filler silica in the presence of an alkyl alkoxysilane and a non-sulfur coupling agent that binds to the rubber backbone with an “ene” linkage or a 1,3 dipolar addition linkage. In particular, the coupling agent and the alkyl alkoxysilane are present in the compound in a weight ratio of about 0.0001:1 to about 1:1.
