  • Patent number: 10377878
    Abstract: The latex polymer compositions of the present invention exhibit latent crosslinking properties. Latent crosslinking in the polymers takes advantage of the fast interaction between the anionic latex charge and the cationic charge associated with polyfunctional amine crosslinkers. Once the latex is coated onto a substrate, the volatile base evaporates and the groups react to form a crosslinked coating with improved wash-off properties.

  • Patent number: 8431224
    Abstract: Disclosed is a halogen-free resin composition for printed wiring board production, which is remarkably reduced in quality deterioration due to moisture absorption of a semi-cured resin film (layer). Also disclosed is a copper film with resin or the like. The resin composition is characterized by containing a component A (one or more resins selected from the group consisting of bisphenol-A epoxy resins, bisphenol-F epoxy resins and bisphenol-AD epoxy resins, which have an epoxy equivalent of not more than 200, while being in a liquid state at 25 DEG C.), a component B (a linear polymer having a crosslinkable functional group), a component C (a crosslinking agent), a component D (an imidazole-based epoxy resin curing agent) and a component E (a phosphorus-containing epoxy resin). The resin composition is also characterized by containing 0.5-3.0% by weight of phosphorus atoms per 100% by weight of the resin composition. In the copper foil with resin, a resin layer is formed by using the resin composition.
