  • Patent number: 9284510
    Abstract: A lubricant coating for laser printer wiper blades is a solution applied to a laser printer wiper blade before install that reduces friction between the wiper blade and the photoconductor drum of a laser printer in order to reduce wear, prevent damage and increase life of the wiper blade and photoconductor drum. A leveling and wetting agent ensures uniform application and reduces coating defects. An anti-wear agent reduces friction and acts as an electrical insulator. A friction reducing agent also reduces friction and acts as an electrical insulator. An evaporation promoting agent aids in evaporation of unnecessary material after application to a wiper blade. A coating enhancing agent increases the hardness of the coating and provides assistance in adherence of the solution to the wiper blade. Deionized water acts as a carrier. The solution is mixed in a high shear mixture.

  • Patent number: 8846816
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process and an apparatus for the preparation of a crosslinkable rubber mixture for vehicle tires, lines, drive belts and other industrial rubber articles, which can be carried out at least semicontinuously. The present invention is based on the discovery that the experiments known from the prior art to carry out the batchwise process usually used at least partly continuously have failed in particular because of the problem that the crosslinking agents have to be mixed rapidly and homogeneously with the base mixture, also referred to as rubber base mixture, without the mixture consisting of the base mixture and the crosslinking agents heating up too strongly. According to the invention, attention was therefore focussed on reliably mixing the base mixture homogeneously with the crosslinking agents and minimizing the mixing time. A first measure for achieving the desired aim consists in first mixing the crosslinking agents with one another before they are mixed with the base mixture.

  • Patent number: 8816003
    Abstract: This invention involves a composition, a method of making, and an application of high plasticization-resistant chemically cross-linked polymeric membranes such as cross-linked cellulose acetate (CA) membrane. These cross-linked polymeric membranes with covalently interpolymer-chain-connected rigid networks showed no decrease in CO2/CH4 ideal selectivity under 690 kPa (100 psig) pure CO2 pressure and also no CO2 plasticization up to 3447 kPa (500 psig) pure CO2 pressure. By using the method of chemical cross-linking as described in this invention, the separation characteristics of the polymeric membranes can be decisively improved. These new cross-linked polymeric membranes can be used not only for gas separations such as CO2/CH4 and CO2/N2 separations, O2/N2 separation, olefin/paraffin separations (e.g. propylene/propane separation), iso/normal paraffins separations, but also for liquid separations such as pervaporation and desalination.

    Abstract: The present invention provides a surface treatment method for a water-absorbing resin comprising three steps of: 1) a humidifying and mixing step for mixing a base polymer and a surface cross-linking agent solution to obtain a “humidified substance”; 2) a pretreatment step for raising temperature of said humidified substance to obtain a “pretreated substance”; and 3) a surface cross-linking reaction step for cross-linking said pretreated substance to obtain a surface cross-linked “water-absorbing resin”; wherein dew point in the pretreatment step of the above 2) is from 50° C. to 95° C., and temperature of said humidified substance is raised from temperature below the dew point up to a temperature of 10° C. higher than the dew point.
