A pretreatment composition and a method for pretreating a metal substrate is disclosed. The method comprises: (a) pretreating the metal substrate with a Group IV(b) metal ion, followed by (b) treating the substrate of (a) with a composition comprising: (i) a Group IV(b) metal ion, (ii) a copper ion, (iii) a fluoride ion, and (iv) an organophosphonic acid, followed by (c) electrodepositing a cationic electrodepositable composition on the metal substrate.


A low infrared absorbing lithium glass includes FeO in the range of 0.0005-0.015 wt.%, more preferably 0.001-0.010 wt.%, and a redox ratio in the range of 0.005-0.15, more preferably in the range of 0.005-0.10. The glass can be chemically tempered and used to provide a ballistic viewing cover for night vision goggles or scope. A method is provided to change a glass making process from making a high infrared absorbing lithium glass having FeO in the range of 0.02 to 0.04 wt.% and a redox ratio in the range of 0.2 to 0.4 to the low infrared absorbing lithium glass by adding additional oxidizers to the batch materials. A second method is provided to change a glass making process from making a low infrared absorbing lithium glass to the high infrared absorbing lithium glass by adding additional reducers to the batch material. In one embodiment of the invention the oxidizer is CeO2. An embodiment of the invention covers a glass made according to the method.


A crosslinkable, branched polyester prepared by free radical polymerization of unsaturated polyester prepolymers, wherein the polymerization occurs primarily by reaction of the unsaturation is disclosed.

Thermally produced graphenic carbon particles for use as absorptive pigments are disclosed. The pigments may be used in coatings and bulk articles to provide favorable absorbance characteristics at various wavelengths including visible and infrared regions.


The present invention is directed to methods of separating a fluid emulsion stream into a hydrocarbon stream and an aqueous stream, by contacting the stream with a microporous membrane to yield a hydrocarbon product stream and an aqueous product stream. The membrane comprises a substantially hydrophobic, polymeric matrix, and substantially hydrophilic, finely divided, particulate, substantially water-insoluble filler distributed throughout the matrix. The polymeric matrix has a mean pore size less than 1.0 micron, and the purities of the product streams are independent of the flux rate of the aqueous product stream and the pore size of the membrane.


The present invention relates to sizing compositions, to glass fibers at least partially coated with such sizing compositions, to a variety of fiber glass products at least partially coated with such sizing compositions, and to composites formed from cycloolefins and reinforced with glass fibers at least partially coated with sizing compositions of the present invention. In one non-limiting embodiment, a sizing composition for glass fibers comprises a film-former comprising a polymer, wherein the repeating unit of the polymer comprises at least four carbon atoms and at least one carbon-carbon double bond, and a silane. A sizing composition for glass fibers, in another non-limiting embodiment, comprises a film-former comprising a polymer, wherein the repeating unit of the polymer comprises four to six carbon atoms and one carbon-carbon double bond, in an amount between about 60 and about 90 weight percent on a total solids basis, and a silane comprising a terminal vinyl group in an amount between about 5 and about 25 weight percent on a total solids basis.


A method that includes obtaining, using a processor, image data from a target coating. The method also includes performing, using the processor, an image analysis to determine at least one sparkle point from the image data, and performing, using the processor, a hue analysis to determine a sparkle color from the sparkle point. The method further includes calculating, using the processor, a sparkle color distribution, and generating, using the processor, a coating formulation that is the same or substantially similar in appearance to the target coating.


A low infrared absorbing lithium glass includes FeO in the range of 0.0005-0.015 wt %, more preferably 0.001-0.010 wt %, and a redox ratio in the range of 0.005-0.15, more preferably in the range of 0.005-010.

Patent
PPG Industries | Date: 2017-07-19

A method for applying a multilayer coating comprising a basecoat and a clearcoat is disclosed. The basecoat is a curable aqueous composition comprising (1) polymeric particles prepared from ethylenically unsaturated compounds including a multi-ethylenically unsaturated monomer and a keto or aldo-functional monomer, and (2) a polyhydrazide. A hydrophobic polymer is present in the aqueous composition to improve its humidity resistance.
