Patent
PolyOne Corporation | Date: 2017-04-26

A nylon compound is disclosed having good through plane thermal conductivity and improved physical strength. The compound comprises a combination of nylon, graphite, and long glass fibers. The through plane thermal conductivity of the compound ranges from about 1 W/m.K to about 4 W/m.K, as measured by the C-Therm Test described herein. This nylon compound is also electrically conductive, preferably having a surface resistivity ranging from about 1 x 103 Ohm/sq to about 1 x 105 Ohm/sq as measured by IEC 60093.

A composite laminate is made by providing at least a first composite ply and a second composite ply, each having longitudinally oriented fibers in a thermoplastic matrix. The second composite ply is disposed on, and in transverse relation to, the first composite ply. Preferably, the second ply is disposed at 90 relative to the first ply. An article can be manufactured by providing a core material and applying a reinforcing material to a portion of the core material. The reinforcing material is a reinforcing composite ply or a composite laminate as described herein. Optionally, the core material is a prepreg that may be a composite laminate.

A thermally conductive polymer article is disclosed, made from a polymer resin and thermally conductive additives, wherein the article has undergone laser structuring and plasma metallization and, preferably, surface-mount technology (SMT) by non-lead reflow soldering, to provide an integrated circuit. The article can be in the shape of a printed circuit board or a LED lighting component among other possibilities. The thermally conductive additive can be either electrically insulative or electrically conductive, or both types can be used. The thermally conductive polymer compound can be extruded, molded, calendered, thermoformed, or 3D-printed before taking shape as a heat dissipating, laser structured, and plasma metalized polymer article.

A method and system for oxygen molecule scavenging is disclosed. The system employs as a novel copolymer as the reducing agent for oxygen molecules. The copolymer is the polymerization product of cyclic aliphatic monomer and unsaturated functional polymer.


A thermally conductive polyamide compound is disclosed. The compound comprises a polyamide matrix, boron nitride, and a laser direct structuring additive dispersed in the matrix. The compound can be extruded, molded, calendered, thermoformed, or 3D-printed into a heat dissipating and laser direct structured article.


Aliphatic polyimides are synthesized by a 2:1 molar ratio reaction of an unsaturated monoanhydride or an unsaturated diacid with a diamine. Bio-derived monomers are particularly useful in the synthesis of the aliphatic polyimides.

Significant disadvantages of the use of polylactic acid (PLA), lack of good heat stability and flame retardance, have been overcome by the use of an aryl phosphate in combination with talc. The compound achieves a threshold of 65 C. in heat deflection temperature and V-0 flame retardance at 1.6 mm thickness.


A thermoplastic elastomer compound is disclosed having a high strain recovery rate and a high strain fixity rate to provide shape memory, preferably manageable shape memory. One type of thermoplastic elastomer compound is comprises a maleated styrenic block copolymer and polycaprolactone to achieve the shape memory. A second type of thermoplastic elastomer compound comprises styrene-ethylene/butylene-styrene and a paraffin wax having less than about 0.5% oil content. Shape modes of articles made from the thermoplastic elastomer compound can be altered by at least one thermo-mechanical event to cause deformation of the compound from a first shape to a second shape with retention of the compound in the second shape for any reasonable time interval.
