Steps (a) and (b) are carried out under temperature conditions and within a time interval where essentially no allophanate will be formed, while step (c) is performed under temperature conditions and within a time interval in which the polyurethane polymer is cross-linked through the formation of allophanate.

  • Patent number: 6472487
    Abstract: Synthetic polymers having moieties capable of covalent or hydrogen bonding to cellulose and one or more amphiphilic moieties are disclosed. These polymers are capable of providing two distinct properties to paper products, such as tissues, which properties heretofore have been imparted through the use of at least two different molecules. The backbone of these synthetic polymers is based on modified vinyl polymers, such as polyvinyl alcohol, polyacrylamides and polyacrylic acids.

  • Patent number: 6228969
    Abstract: The present invention concerns biodegradable linear polyester urethanes as well as biodegradable crosslinked polyester urethanes issuing from the linear polyester urethanes in such a way that they are crosslinked by diisocyanate bridges. By varying the degree of crosslinking it is possible to adjust the physical, chemical and biological properties in the crosslinked polyester urethane as defined by the invention in a targeted manner. In particular, it is possible to vary the rate of biodegradation of said crosslinked polyester urethane because the biological degradation takes place at a slower rate as the degree of crosslinking increases. Furthermore, the object of the invention is a method of producing the polyester urethanes as defined by the invention, as well as its application in the form of sheets or foils, shaped rubber articles, containers, packaging materials, in the field of galenic pharmacy; and in the form of adhesives and adhesive tapes and the like.
