Research Institution
There is great anticipation and an urgent need to develop a low viscosity, affordable, non-styrene based, flame resistant resin system similar to the vinyl ester Derekane 510A and curable at room temperature. This resin system, compliments of DowChemical, is a Brominated bisphenol and has work quite well relative to confined place. There is a need to find an alternate material that will produce non-toxic gaseous material when subjected to flame. The current halogenated resin has a tendency to breakdown and form acidic fumes which are more dangerous in most cases than the fireitself. The objective of this proposal is to develop a resin system similar to Derekane 510A in every respect except for that fact that it will be non-styrene based and laden with halides. The commercialization strategy of moving the result of this invention to the market is quite straightforward. The strategy will involve forming an Integrated Product Team (IPT). As a matter of fact the members of the team will include DuPont ElectronicTechnologies, whose main market objective is to service the electronics industry with highly branched, low metal polymers with photo-resist capability. Following a successful development of the base material in Phase I, DuPont will play a significant role in Phase II of the project. It will be an easy selection process for DuPont to select an end user of the product from their impressive customer list.DuPont also has ISO 9000 certified manufacture plant in Dayton, Ohio to scale up whatever material is developed through this effort.To date, more than nine resins have been commercialized by A.T.A.R.D. Laboratories. The success and experience gained in establishing a commercial base for former products will enable us to transition the technology into a commercialized product.
