28076 results about "Plasticizer" patented technology

Plasticizers (UK: plasticisers) or dispersants are additives that increase the plasticity or decrease the viscosity of a material. These are the substances which are added in order to alter their physical properties. These are either liquids with low volatility or solids. They decrease the attraction between polymer chains to make them more flexible. Over the last 60 years more than 30,000 different substances have been evaluated for their plasticizing properties. Of these, only a small number – approximately 50 – are today in commercial use. The dominant applications are for plastics, especially polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The properties of other materials may also be modified when blended with plasticizers including concrete, clays, and related products. According to 2014 data, the total global market for plasticizers was 8.4 million metric tonnes including 1.3 million metric tonnes in Europe.

Biodegradable vehicle and filler

A biodegradable vehicle and filler (referred to in this invention as biodegradable vehicle), which can be mixed with one or more biologically active substances (BAS), or can be used as a biodegradable filler to fill in cavities or body tissues in animals, birds and humans. The consistency and rheology, hydrophilicity and hydrophobicity, and in vivo degradation rates of the biodegradable vehicle is controlled by modulating the molecular weight of polymers and copolymers, concentration of plasticizers, ratios of two or more plasticizer in the blends, types of polymers and copolymers, copolymer ratios, and ratios of blends of polymers with different molecular weights or different copolymers. The biodegradable vehicle is mixed with one or more BAS (which is separately stored away from the biodegradable vehicle in an appropriate container) just prior to use. Mixing of the BAS with the biodegradable vehicle can be accomplished by simply stirring the mixture with a stirring device, or by triturating the mixture or employing an ointment mill or a suitable device or apparatus or equipment that can be used for blending / mixing. Alternatively, a device, which resembles two syringes, attached together with a removable partition or a valve assembly can also be used to uniformly mix the BAS with the biodegradable vehicle. The mixing is performed in order to dissolve or uniformly suspend the BAS particles in the biodegradable vehicle. Modulating the polymer to plasticizer ratio, polymer molecular weight, copolymer ratio, and hydrophobicity and hydrophilicity of the plasticizer controls the release of the BAS from the biodegradable vehicle.

Highly filled polymer composition with improved properties

A highly filled polymer composition with improved properties comprising: a continuous matrix material; a filler material in an amount of 10 to 80 wt. % of said composition; a polymer plasticizer dispersed in said continuous matrix material in an amount of 0.5 to 15 wt. % of said filler; a filler coating material which coats said filler particles in the form of a continuous coating layer thus forming coated filler particles; a diffusion zone around said coated filler particles where said filler coating and said continuous matrix material are mutually diffused into one another wherein said filler coating material is distributed with concentration decreasing in the direction outward from said continuous coating layer. Provided also is a method of preparing the aforementioned composition which guarantees that during extrusion or similar treatment the filler particles are coated with a continuous layer of the filler coating material and that the aforementioned diffusion zone is formed around the coated filler particles. In the manufacture of various products such as pipes, sheets, profiles, etc., the composition of the invention combines high deformation capacity with sufficient strength. Furthermore, the composition of the invention possesses high anticorrosive properties, has low shrinkage, and has high adhesion to metals, wood, plastics, etc.
