A treated inorganic solid comprises particulate inorganic material the particles of which are coated with an alkylphosphonic acid or ester thereof, the alkylphosphonic acid containing 6 to 22 carbon atoms. The particulate material is usually a pigment, extender or filler which is treated by mixing with the alkylphosphonic acid or ester for example in an aqueous dispersion or during a process step such as milling. The treated inorganic solid is particularly useful for preparing polymer compositions such as masterbatches.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
