  7. Environmentally Safe Silane Technology for Adhesion of Rubber to Tire Cord Steel

    SBC: Aeromet Technologies, Inc.            Topic: C3NCERPA

    Current methods of rubber/metal bonding lead to significant environmental concerns. The largest single commercial rubber-bonding application is the bonding of steel tire cords to sulfur-vulcanized natural rubber compounds. The current processes require that cobalt be added to the rubber to provide durable bonds. Cyanide also is used in the brass plating of steel tire cords. Tire separa ...

  8. Mixed Potential-Based Miniature Sensors for Real-Time On-Vehicle NOx Monitoring From Mobile Sources

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide (jointly represented as NOx) constitute one of the primary classes of pollutants in engine exhaust from both on-road mobile sources such as diesel trucks, and off-road sources such as tractors. Monitoring the NOx concentration in exhaust streams is critical for efficient application of new technologies for the reduction of NOx emissions, and for the enforcement o ...

  9. Environmentally Safe Silane Technology for Adhesion of Rubber to Tire Cord Steel

    SBC: Aeromet Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Strong and durable bonds between rubber and metals are important in many industries. The largest single commercial application is bonding of steel tire cords to sulfur-vulcanized natural rubber (NR) compounds. The current process for bonding steel tire cords to NR compounds requires the plating of brass on the individual filaments. This brass alloy is applied on the running wire as it is being dra ...

  10. Innovative Oxidation Treatment for Removal of MTBE From Drinking Water Using a Combined Photocatalytic Reactor and Ozone Generator

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Oxygenates such as methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) have been used in the United States as octane enhancers in gasoline and to boost the oxygen content of reformulated gasoline, which was a requirement of the Clean Air Act. MTBE has found its way into lakes, underground aquifers, and urban wells in 49 states; MTBE is detected in 5¿10 percent of community drinking water supplies in high-oxygenat ...
