    Abstract: A rubber composition which can be used in particular in tires, based on at least one diene elastomer, one reinforcing filler, one crosslinking system, one phenolic resin and one polyaldehyde. The use of a polyaldehyde makes it possible to advantageously replace conventional methylene donors while preventing the production of formaldehyde during the vulcanization of the rubber compositions and thus to limit the environmental impact of these compounds. Furthermore, these polyaldehyde compounds make it possible not only to obtain rubber compositions exhibiting the same low-strain stiffness as conventional rubber compositions using HMT or H3M methylene donors but also, surprisingly, to greatly improve the fatigue strength of the rubber compositions and thus the endurance of the tires.

  • Patent number: 8106125
    Abstract: The invention provides a golf ball material composed of an ionomeric resin composition obtained by melt-blending under applied heat one or more compounds selected from among UV/EB-curable materials with, in the presence of a peroxide, a non-ionomeric thermoplastic resin and an ionomeric resin; or of an ionomeric resin composition obtained by using, instead of the ionomeric resin, an acid-containing polymer base of the ionomeric resin and subjecting the acid-containing polymer composition similarly prepared by melt-blending under applied heat to an acid-neutralizing reaction with a metal ionic species. Methods for preparing such a material, and golf balls which include as a component therein a molding made of the golf ball material are also provided. The golf ball material has a good thermal stability, flow and processability, and can thus be used to obtain high-performance golf balls endowed with an excellent abrasion resistance, scuff resistance, durability and flexibility without a loss of rebound.
