Eastman Chemical Company, Eric D Middlemas, Louis N Moreno, Bernard J Graves Jr, July 10, 2007: US07241838 (30 worldwide citation)

Disclosed are blends of aliphatic-aromatic copolyesters with poly(ethylene-co-vinyl acetate) copolymers and shaped articles prepared therefrom. These blends have higher melt strength than the aliphatic-aromatic copolyester alone and exhibit increased melt strength and better processability. In addit ...

Ted Calvin Germroth, Candace Michele Tanner, Marc Alan Strand, Rodney Layne Piner: High clarity films with improved thermal properties. Eastman Chemical Company, Bernard J Graves Jr, Eric D Middlemas, Louis N Moreno, April 8, 2008: US07354653 (9 worldwide citation)

Disclosed are high clarity films produced from semicrystalline polyesters by calendering. These films unexpectedly develop a higher peak melting point, which leads to higher thermal resistance. The semicrystalline polyesters may be biodegradable. When these calendered films are oriented, they develo ...

Kenneth Conley, Candace Michele Tanner: Multi-layer display having combination of visually moveable and stationary elements therefore. Eastman Chemical Company, Cheryl Tubach, Bernard Graves, May 14, 2002: US06385882 (9 worldwide citation)

A two-dimensional display having a three-dimensional visual appearance has printed on a substantially flat or planar surface a predetermined message or information. Superposed over the message is a lenticular lens. Adjacent to the message are a series of spaced apart lines which may either be coplan ...
