High temperature polyurethane/urea elastomers

The present invention relates to molded polyurethane/urea elastomers, and specifically to improved polyurethane/urea elastomers having high temperature stability to about 140–150° C. and low temperature flexibility at about −35–(−40)° C., for use in dynamic applications. These elastomers are particularly useful for application in belts, specifically in automotive timing or synchronous belts, V-belts, multi V-ribbed or micro-ribbed belts, flat belting and the like. The polyurethane/urea elastomers of the present invention are prepared by reacting polyisocyanate prepolymers with symmetric primary diamine chain extenders, mixtures of symmetric primary diamine chain extenders and secondary diamine chain extenders, or mixtures of symmetric primary diamine chain extenders and non-oxidative polyols, which are all chosen to eliminate the need for catalysts via standard molding processes, and to improve phase separation. The polyisocyanate prepolymers are reaction products of polyols which are nonoxidative at high temperatures, such as polycarbonate polyols, polyester polyols, or mixtures thereof, with organic polyisocyanates which are either compact, symmetric and aromatic, such as para-phenylene diisocyanate, 1,5-naphthalene diisocyanate, and 2,6-toluene diisocyanate, or are aliphatic and possess trans or trans,trans geometric structure, such as trans-1,4-cyclohexane diisocyanate and trans,trans-4,4′-dicyclohexylmethyl diisocyanate.

Process for making dynamically-loaded articles comprising propylene-based elastomers, composition for use in such processes, and article made using such processes

The invention relates to a process for making an article subject to dynamic loading, the process comprises: (i) shaping a polymer-containing composition in the green state, the composition comprising (a) a continuous phase of a polymeric component of at least 15 wt %, based on the total weight of the polymer component of a propylene elastomer having a heat of fusion of less than 70 J/g and an isotactic triad tacticity of 50 to 99% and optionally containing units derived from a diene, the polymeric component having a density of less than 0.9 g/cm3 and (b) from 20 to 120 phr, preferably 30 to 100 phr, most preferably 40 to 90 phr based on the total weight of the polymer component of a reinforcing filler component; and (c) a peroxide curative. The composition is combined with a fibrous reinforcement which is then cured to a cure state as determined by ODR @ 170° C., 30 min MH-ML of from 5 to 80 dNm. The invention especially relates to such processes when providing under Demattia testing conditions a crack length of less than 15 mm at room temperature over 90K cycles, preferably 10 mm, more preferably 7 mm, and most preferably 4 mm, and a 10% modulus of 0.7 to 10 MPa, preferably 1.4 to 9 MPa and most preferably 2 to 8 MPa.

Variable-tooth gear with sliding-sheet deforming teeth

A variable-tooth gear with sliding-sheet deforming teeth pertains to the technical fields of gearing, and continuously variable mechanical transmissions. The variable-tooth gear is designed in accordance with “the principle of configuring variable-teeth through infinitely deforming sliding-sheets”. The working surface is composed of a large number of thin sliding-sheets (sliding-needles) superposed on one another. The meshing tooth profiles of arbitrary shapes can be configured by the free and infinite sliding of the sliding-sheets. Since the direction of sliding of the sliding-sheets is different from the direction of forces acting thereupon, the sliding-sheets can freely deform with the current tooth profiles. The direction of the force acting upon the sliding-sheet when transmitting power is perpendicular to the free-sliding direction, or the angle therebetween is within the equivalent friction angle, therefore the sliding-sheet possesses the self-locking property. The tooth profile thus remains unchanged when the sliding-sheets are under stress. All the sliding-sheets form an integrally closed elastic enclosure ring, possessing the effect of “rigidity and flexibility being combined, variable-tooth being fixed”. Therefore the load capacity is high, the transmission is a one-stage transmission and the transmission efficiency is high. There are only two key components, such that the structure is simple, the cost is low and the size is compact. This variable-tooth gear realizes, to the core, the concept of “continuously variable transmission via gear meshing”, and can be applied to vehicles or industrial fields of high speed and large power.
