Acrylic polymer particles incorporating ZrO2 nanoparticles (hybrid latex dispersion) were synthesized by miniemulsion polymerization. The refractive index of the films prepared from the hybrid latex increased with increase of ZrO2 content. Surface-modified ZrO2 nanoparticles could be dispersed in polymer matrix having phosphoric acid group. © 2011 The Chemical Society of Japan.

Metal oxide (ZrO2) nanoparticle-dispersed polymer films (hybrid latex films) were prepared from polymer particles incorporating ZrO2 nanoparticles (hybrid latex dispersion). The hybrid latex dispersions were synthesized by miniemulsion polymerization. The resulting films were transparent, and they derived their properties from the ZrO2 nanoparticles. The refractive indexes of the films increased with the ZrO 2 content. Surface-modified ZrO2 nanoparticles were dispersed successfully in a polymer matrix containing phosphoric acid groups, which interacts with the surfaces of the ZrO2 nanoparticles and increases the compatibility between the polymer and ZrO2. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.

IRVING, Texas, Feb. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The unsaturated polyester resin industry is a mature market that is predominantly characterized by established products, applications, and processes. The major players offer a complete portfolio of resins, covering all the major chemistries and the property and/or performance requirements for the wide range of application markets and processing methods. This report has 163 figures/charts and 171 tables spread through 208 pages http://www.lucintel.com/unsaturated_polyester_resin_competitive_analysis.aspx Polynt and Ashland are the market leaders with diversified product portfolios, strong geographical reach, and high strategic initiatives. Over the next five years, suppliers will be focusing on growing end-user industries like transportation, pipe & tank, and construction in emerging countries like India, China, and the Middle East (particularly in the UAE and Saudi Arabia) where they are likely to capture larger market share in the global UPR market. Over the last five years, suppliers have focused on new product developments which are resins that are styrene free or have low styrene content. The suppliers have grown organic and inorganic in the last five years. Polynt acquired CCP composites and Reichhold to become the UPR market leader. Also, DSM Composite Resins and CCV have formed a partnership to create a new company: Aliancys A.G. The suppliers have also made partnerships, agreements, and contracts with various distributers around the world. The companies producing UPR are exploring market opportunities with starkly different strategies. Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the global UPR market and has come up with a comprehensive research report, “Worldwide Unsaturated Polyester Resin Competitive Analysis and Leadership Study 2016.” This report offers a full competitive analysis from target markets to product mapping, from selling strategies to production capabilities. This report has examined and profiled the world’s leading UPR producers. Lucintel created profiles of each competitor based on the following criteria: Financial Strength The resulting research report represents the most comprehensive strategic and tactical assessment of the UPR producers and competitive landscape available. In terms of the total revenue generated by leading UPR producers, Polynt ranks number one, followed by Ashland. AOC, New Solar Co. Ltd., and Aliancys A. G. (DSM) all of which are included in the report. The detailed analysis of each company offers a critical view into key strategic areas, including: Designed for the composites and non-composites industry professionals, financial services firms, and users of UPR, Lucintel's “Worldwide Unsaturated Polyester Resin Competitive Analysis and Leadership Study 2016” is the industry’s comprehensive examination of the UPR producers’ competitive landscape. Collected from a series of primary vendor interviews and secondary sources, Lucintel also provides its own scorecard for determining which of these companies is better aligned with future market opportunities and which has the ability to gain additional market share. Using its proprietary research methodology, Lucintel has developed a comparative analysis tool, the ‘Lucintel Leadership Quadrant,’ which identifies leaders and challengers in the UPR market and rates each UPR producer on two primary criteria as shown below: Ability to gain market share was analyzed using following parameters: Alignment with market opportunity was analyzed using following parameters: About Lucintel Lucintel, the premier global management consulting and market research firm, creates winning strategies for growth—whether you need to understand market dynamics, identify new opportunities, or increase your profitability.

High refractive index dispersant of silane coupling agent for nanoparticles were synthesized by thiol-ene reaction of 3-mercaptopropyltrimethoxysilane (MPTMS) and bis-(3-methylphenyl)fluorene allyl ether (BCF-allyl). Zirconia nanoparticle dispersions were prepared by a bead milling process using this dispersant. Thus obtained zirconia nanoparticle dispersions show good dispersibility in MEK. Bis-phenoxyethanolfluorene diacrylate (BPEFA) and the zirconia nanoparticle dispersion formed homogenous mixtures in a wide variety of component ratio, and these coated thin films were photo-cured by UV irradiation with a photo-radical initiator. These hybrid thin films with zirconia nanoparticles indicated high refractive index and good transparency even at high particulate concentration. © 2013 SPST.

The dual site silane coupling agent was synthesized by thiol-ene reaction. Zirconia nanoparticles could be dispersed effectively by using it. Surface bonded phtalic acid esters acted as a plasticizer to provide a good compatibility with photo-curable acrylates. High refractive index hybrid thin film indicated high transparency even though high nanoparticle contents. Therefore, hybrid thin films with photo-cured acrylates are possible to control their refractive index, and they will be expected to apply to optical materials. © 2014SPST.

The organic-inorganic hybrid thin films are optically transparent, so they are useful optical materials and good candidates of refractive index controllable materials. We have been investigating several types of organic-inorganic hybrid materials with high refractive index by containing sulfur elements, zirconia nano-particles.

The surface treatment of zirconia nano-particle was carried out by two procedures of bead milling and ultrasonic irradiation with vinyl trimethoxysilane and 2-methacryloxyethylisocyanate as finishing agents, correspondingly. Especially, the dispersion of zirconia nano-partides with 8.5 nm diameters in methyl ethyl ketone was prepared by organic modification via the formation of a urethane bond with 2methacryloxyethylisocyanate and hydroxyl groups on the particle surface. The zirconia nano-particle dispersed multi-functional acrylates with a photo radical initiator were coated on a PET film, and photo-cured with UV irradiation. These polyacrylate films containing zirconia nano-particles showed a high refractive index. ©2010, The Society of Polymer Science, Japan.
