Abstract: The present invention is a drying composition comprising spherical beads and a stable aqueous dispersion of polymer particles and also a dried composition of the spherical beads and a polymer film. The composition is useful as a wall repair formulation.
Abstract: A sprayable adhesive composition may be made from the blend of a low Tg acrylic resin, water, and one or more water miscible organic solvents disposed in a container with one or more hydrocarbon propellants. The adhesive is stable in the presence of the hydrocarbon propellants. An adhesive delivery system for storing and discharging the adhesive compositions of the present invention are also taught.
Abstract: A water- and oil-repellent composition consisting of (A) a fluorine-containing copolymer comprising at least 20% by weight (based on the copolymer) of (a1) units derived from a polymerizable monomer having a C1-6 polyfluoroalkyl group or a polyfluoroalkenyl group, (B) a surfactant component comprising as the essential components (b1) a nonionic surfactant having an HLB value of 12 or below and (b2) a nonionic surfactant having an HLB value of 15 or above, and (C) an aqueous medium substantially consisting of water. This composition is free from operationally or environmentally undesirable solvents and superior to conventional ones in stabilities such as mechanical stability, chemical stability, and long-term shelf stability.
Abstract: To provide an aqueous emulsion composition which has high adhesion strength for a wide variety of materials including molded products and affords sufficient wettability even for the object to be adhesive bonded of low surface polarity so that it can develop sufficient adhesiveness and whose emulsion is stable so satisfactorily as to provide good mechanical stability and storage stability, and to provide an adherent composition comprising the aqueous emulsion composition, at least ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer or modified resin thereof, photo polymerization initiator, and unsaturated ethylenic monomer are mixed and dissolved or dispersed, to prepare oil drop component, followed by emulsifying the oil drop component in water by using a surface-active agent, whereby an aqueous emulsion composition, in which micelles each encapsulating at least the ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer or modified resin thereof, the photo polymerization initiator and unsaturated ethylenic monomer are dispersed in water, is prepared
Abstract: Disclosed is a cationic graft-modified natural rubber latex, which is obtained by cationically modifying the graft-natural natural rubber latex with a cationic surfactant in the presence of a nonionic surfactant such as polyoxyalkylene alkyl phenyl ether, polyoxyalkylene monostyryl phenyl ether, polyoxyalkylene distyryl phenyl ether or polyoxyalkylene tristyryl phenyl ether, the obtained rubber latex being useful as an adhesive for fibers and papers.
Abstract: An aqueous adhesive composition, as for bonding rubber substrates together or for bonding a rubber substrate to a fabric, comprising a blend of a carboxylated rubber latex as made from styrene, butadiene, and an unsaturated acid monomer, and a natural rubber latex, is sulfur curable and desirably utilizes rubber accelerators. The adhesive composition is substantially free of hydrocarbon solvents and/or tackifiers and has good physical properties such as high peel strength.

Abstract: A puncture sealing agent for sealing an inner surface of a tire comprises a deproteinized rubber latex that is formed by removing protein from a natural rubber latex. The puncture sealing agent includes nitrogen content at 0.1 wt. % or less of rubber solid content of the deproteinized rubber latex, and ammonia content at 0.5 wt. % or less of the rubber solid content.
Abstract: A semi-synthetic rubber latex. The rubber employed in the latex is natural rubber obtained from plant life known to produce polyisoprene. Surprisingly, the semi-synthetic rubber latex is essentially devoid of those proteins that are known to give rise to natural rubber allergenicity or hypersensitivity, and are also essentially devoid of antigens that potentially will give rise to immune responses. Also provided is a method for obtaining the semi-synthetic rubber latex and dipped films thereof that are also substantially free of known natural rubber allergens.

Abstract: A method for producing a formed product of deproteinized natural rubber latex capable of reducing a content of an allergen in a natural rubber latex material to a level sufficient to keep the latex from being harmful to the human body without decreasing yields of the product and deteriorating formability of the latex. In the method, cleaning removal of a non-rubber content is carried out after each of protein decomposition, prevulcanization and forming. An aqueous alkali solution, ammonia, water containing free chlorine in an amount of 0.005 to 0.02% by weight or alcohol-water mixed liquid containing alcohol in an amount of 5 to 80% by weight is used as cleaning liquid for the cleaning removal. The method is suitably applied to production of a natural rubber product such as a rubber glove, a condom, a catheter, a foam rubber material and the like.
Abstract: A natural rubber latex has been preserved and stabilized by at least one water-soluble carboxylic acid salt of the formula R--COO.sup.- M.sup.+, in which R is an alkyl or alkenyl radical having a branched carbon chain and M.sup.+ is a monovalent cation. A process for the preparation of the rubber latex mixture uses a water-soluble carboxylic acid salt for the preservation and stabilization of natural latex.
Abstract: A water-based maskant composition and a chemical milling method using the maskant composition. Said water-based maskant composition comprises 100 parts by weight (as solids) of a latex constituent consisting of (a) 5-60 parts by weight (as solids) of a copolymer latex obtained by emulsion-polymerization of a monomer mixture consisting of 30-70% by weight of an aliphatic conjugated diene compound, 20-70% by weight of an aromatic vinyl compound, 0-10% by weight of an ethylenically unsaturated carboxylic acid and 0-50% by weight of a vinyl compound copolymerizable therewith and (b) 95-40 parts by weight (as solids) of a natural rubber latex; 10-500 parts by weight of a filler; and 0.1-10 parts by weight of a thickener, wherein the vicosity at 25.degree. C. is 500-5,000 cps as measured by BH type rotor at 20 rpm at a solids concentration of 50% by weight, the pH is 7-9 and the tensile strength and elongation of a film obtained from the composition are 50-150 kgf/cm.sup.
