Rick L Tabor, Patricio Jimenez Jr, Wayne R Wilkomm, Ralph D Priester Jr, Marty C Cornell, Chris P Christenson, Kimberly F Bennett, Peder E Danielsen, Jeffery D Zawisza: Method of manufacturing a filament formed reinforcement member and a run flat tire support therewith. The Dow Chemical Company, Locke Liddell & Sapp, January 24, 2006: US06989065 (2 worldwide citation)

The present invention provides a unitary run flat tire (RFT) reinforcement using filament material that is formed into a relatively rigid shape. The reinforcement is insertable into a mold for an RFT support and can maintain the needed structural rigidity for such insertion. Further, the invention p ...

Morehouse Jr Donald S, Tetreault Roland J: Expansible thermoplastic polymer particles containing volatile fluid foaming agent and method of foaming the same. The Dow Chemical Company, October 26, 1971: US3615972 (383 worldwide citation)

Thermoplastic microspheres are prepared which encapsulate a liquid blowing agent. Heating of the microspheres causes expansion. The microspheres are useful for coatings, moldings, plastic smoke, etc. Urnlike hollow microspheres are also shown. The expandable microspheres are prepared by a suspension ...

Dustin L Free, Karl L Krumel, Travis C Snyder: Self-breaking viscous aqueous solutions and the use thereof in fracturing subterranean formations. The Dow Chemical Company, Bruce M Kanuch, June 1, 1976: US03960736 (242 worldwide citation)

Viscous aqueous solutions are prepared which maintain a certain viscosity range over a predetermined period of time (i.e., induction period) and which thereafter break, i.e., decrease in viscosity over a very short period of time. The viscous aqueous solution comprises a polysaccharide having an abi ...
