Title: Composite materials with improved phyllosilicate dispersion

Abstract

The present invention provides phyllosilicates edge modified with anionic surfactants, composite materials made from the edge modified phyllosilicates, and methods for making the same. In various embodiments the phyllosilicates are also surface-modified with hydrophilic lipophilic balance (HLB) modifying agents, polymeric hydrotropes, and antioxidants. The invention also provides blends of edge modified phyllosilicates and semicrystalline waxes. The composite materials are made by dispersing the edge modified phyllosilicates with polymers, particularly polyolefins and elastomers.

  • This patent describes a composite metal powder wherein essentially each powder particle is comprised of one or more metals and one or more refractory compounds. The powder particles are characterized as (a) having a cohesive internal structure in which the one or more metals and refractory compounds are intimately united to provide an interdispersion of comminuted fragments of the metals and refractory, (b) having the refractory substantially homogeneously dispersed throughout the metal matrix, and (c) being substantially free of oxide scale; wherein the composite metal powder particles have a mean size less than about 50 microns and a mean grainmore » size within the powder particles of less than about 0.6 microns.« less
  • This patent describes a roll-bonded composite sheet product having at least one layer of dispersion-strengthened copper and at least one layer of molybdenum. The composite is characterized by a sharply defined, cleavage-resistant interface between the copper and the molybdenum with substantially no detectable diffusion of one metal into the other across the interface. The composite is resistant to delamination and being capable of maintaining structural integrity upon repeated high temperature firings at temperatures up to 900{degrees}C.
  • A method for forming a shaped metal matrix composite body is described, comprising: forming a permeable mass with molten matrix metal; spontaneously infiltrating at least a portion of the permeable mass to form a highly loaded metal matrix composite body; introducing said highly loaded metal matrix composite body and a second matrix metal into a container having a cavity for retaining said highly loaded metal matrix composite body and said second matrix metal; heating said highly loaded metal matrix composite body and said second matrix metal to at least the liquidus temperatures of the matrix metal of said highly loadedmore » metal matrix composite body and said second matrix metal to form a molten suspension; mixing said molten suspension to substantially uniformly disperse said filler material within said molten suspension; providing a mold having a shaped cavity therein; pouring said molten suspension out of said cavity in said container and into said shaped cavity within said mold; and cooling said suspension to form a shaped metal matrix composite body.« less
  • This patent describes a method for forming porous oxide dispersion strengthened molten carbonate fuel cell anodes having improved anode creep resistance. It comprises: forming a porous plaque of nickel-titanium alloy having between about 1--5 weight percent titanium; internally oxidizing the titanium without oxidizing the nickel by contacting the plaque with a gas mixture containing hydrogen and steam in a ratio of about 2 volumes steam to about 1 volume hydrogen for at least 10 hours at a temperature in the range from about 600{degrees} C. to about 900{degrees} C. to form the oxide dispersion strengthened anode.
  • An elongated nuclear fuel cladding tube is described consisting of: an inner continuous annular layer composed of zirconium alloy; and an outer annular layer composed of a titanium material selected from the group consisting of titanium, titanium alloys, titanium compounds and their combinations with each other; the outer annular layer concentric with the inner annular layer and bonded to the outer circumference of the inner annular layer; the outer annular layer having a wall thickness of between about 0.000014 to about 0.004 inches.
