Kits of the invention useful for forming the polymerized compositions comprise a polymerizable composition and an initiator component, wherein the initiator component comprises a complexed amidine initiator. Bonding compositions can be prepared by mixing the polymerizable composition of the kit with the respective initiator component.

  • Patent number: 6734268
    Abstract: The invention provides bonding compositions and reactive two-part bonding compositions that are useful, for example, in bonding low surface energy substrates (e.g., polyethylene, polypropylene and polytetrafluoroethylene). Bonding compositions of the invention include an organoborane, a polymerizable monomer, and a metal salt which modifies the cure kinetics of the bonding composition to provide a favorable balance of long bonding composition worklife and fast rate of strength build.

  • Patent number: 6646076
    Abstract: Disclosed are internally blocked borates useful for polymerizable compositions, and polymerizable adhesives made therewith. The internally blocked borates have general structures: wherein X represents —CHR6—, oxygen or sulfur; n is an integer; R1, R2, R3, R4, R5, and R6 are independently selected, for example, from unsubstituted and substituted C1-C10 alkyl, alkylene groups, or aryl groups, including other embodiments further defined, and M is a counter ion with positive charge m.

  • Patent number: 6646068
    Abstract: Branched polymers are prepared by mixing together monofunctional vinylic monomer with from 0.3 to 100% w/w of polyfunctional vinylic monomer and from 0.0001 to 50% w/w of chain transfer agent and thereafter reacting the mixture to form a polymer. The resulting branched polymers are soluble and may be used as component of surface coatings and inks as well as molding resins.
