An agglomerated mineral composite coating composition may include a coating vehicle, an agglomerated mineral composite including a first inorganic particulate mineral, a second inorganic particulate mineral, and a binder. The binder may facilitate agglomeration of the first inorganic particulate mineral and the second inorganic particulate mineral. A method of making a coating composition including agglomerated mineral composites may include adding a first inorganic particulate material to a second inorganic particulate material to form a mixture, adding a binder to the mixture to form agglomerated mineral composites, and adding the agglomerated mineral composites to a coating vehicle. The first and second inorganic particulate materials may include diatomaceous earth, mica, perlite, aluminosilicate, talc, and an alkali earth metal carbonate. The aluminosilicate may include kaolin. The alkali earth metal carbonate may include calcium carbonate. The binder may include sodium silicate. The coating composition may include not more than 10% by weight titanium dioxide.


There is disclosed a polymer-based foam composition comprising a polymer and up to 20 wt.-% particles of one or more inorganic particulate materials, based on the total weight of the composition, wherein the one or more inorganic particulate materials comprise less than 20 wt.-% Al, calculated as Al2O3-content. According to one aspect, the one or more inorganic particulate materials comprise phyllosilicates. Also part of the present invention is the use of such polymer-based foam compositions and their method of production.

Ink compositions comprising a carrier and an inorganic particulate additive are described. The ink composition comprises a liquid carrier and an inorganic particulate additive, wherein bleeding of the additive into a fount solution in offset printing is reduced. The inorganic particulate additive has a washout factor, representing the extent of bleeding in offset printing use, of less than about 0.70.


The present disclosure relates to a process for preparing surface-modified carbonaceous particles, wherein said carbonaceous particles are coated with a surface layer of amorphous carbon by dispersing carbonaceous material with an amphiphilic compound, spray drying of the dispersion and subsequent calcination of the dried material. The disclosure also pertains to surface-modified carbonaceous particles coated with amorphous carbon, which can for example be obtained by the process of the invention. The present disclosure further relates to the use of the surface-modified carbonaceous particles in a variety of technical applications, such as its use as an active material for negative electrodes of lithium ion batteries. The present disclosure also relates to a carbon brush or a polymer composite material, and generally compositions comprising said surface-modified carbonaceous particles, optionally together with other carbonaceous or non-carbonaceous materials.

The success of electric vehicles in the mass market depends on the development of high-energy batteries at a competitive price. The research efforts of the past decade have continuously improved the energy densities of batteries, yet electric vehicles have only gradually made their way into the market. A combined surge in both consumer demand and industrial push is now on the verge of prompting a significant market uptake. eCAIMAN will develop a more powerful battery by modifying and improving individual components and technologies to result in a significant overall improvement of the cell. Key innovations include a 5V high- voltage spinel, a high- capacity composite anode, and a stable high- voltage electrolyte. Their cumulative effect will improve total cell capacity by at least 20%. eCAIMAN will not develop high risk / high gain components, due to the higher the risk of failure. This will ensure the success of the project and deliver a market- near product, while at the same time achieving the goals of the call. eCAIMAN scale-up is designed with existing European production technologies and inexpensive materials mined in Europe, thereby reducing the final battery price. The battery is developed in collaboration with large European light, medium and heavy duty vehicle manufacturers, allowing eCAIMAN to address a broad scope of real end-user demands. eCAIMAN will develop a truly European high-performance battery ready for implementation in the global market.
