Kirk J Abbey, James R Erickson: Epoxy modified emulsion polymers. SCM Corporation, Thomas M Schmitz, June 11, 1985: US04522962 (36 worldwide citation)

Emulsion polymers produced by polymerizing ethylenically unsaturated monomers in an aqueous medium can be substantially improved by incorporating into the monomer mixture a minor amount of blend of epoxy resin and glycidyl acrylate. The epoxy modified emulsion polymers are particularly useful as amb ...

Kirk J Abbey: Emulsion process for polymer particles. SCM Corporation, Thomas M Schmitz, March 3, 1981: US04254004 (36 worldwide citation)

An improved two-step process for producing bimodal emulsion polymer particles includes the steps of first providing uniform size polymer particles in the first stage by feeding monomers to the reaction mixture at a rate faster than the rate the monomers polymerize, and followed by a controlled secon ...

Gary P Craun, Kirk J Abbey: Electrocoating process using shear stable cationic latex. SCM Corporation, A Joseph Gibbons, Thomas M Schmitz, August 26, 1986: US04608139 (28 worldwide citation)

Cationic electrocoat latices, containing blocked isocyanate crosslinker and which are usually unstable toward pumping and shear forces, can be stabilized by conducting the emulsion polymerization in a solvent-water mixture containing from about 20 to 30 percent solvent. Ethanol is a preferred solven ...
