|20100048767||ENVIRONMENTALLY DEGRADABLE POLYMERIC BLEND AND PROCESS FOR OBTAINING AN ENVIRONMENTALLY DEGRADABLE POLYMERIC BLEND - The present invention refers to a polymeric blend for the preparation of environmentally degradable materials, said blend comprising biodegradable polymers, polyhydroxybutyrate—PHB or copolymers thereof and poly(butylene adipate/butylene terephthalate) aliphatic-aromatic copolyester and at least one additive. The present invention further refers to the process for obtaining said blend, by applying the extrusion technique to obtain an adequate morphology in the distribution, dispersion and interaction of the polymers, so as to obtain compatible polymeric blends, allowing the granules of the produced polymeric blends to be utilized to manufacture several injection molded products.||02-25-2010|
|20090291119||POLYMERIC IMPLANT AND A PROCESS FOR OBTAINING A POLYMERIC IMPLANT - The polymeric implant is obtained from a renewable source, comprising a body formed by at least one biodegradable polymer selected from the group consisting of polyhydroxyalcanoates (PHAs) and copolymers thereof, said body incorporating, in its micro-structure, an active ingredient in a sufficient quantity to control at least one oestrus cycle of mammal animals. The invention further refers to a process for obtaining a polymeric implant comprising the steps of: mixing progesterone or progestogen, at least one polymer of the group of PHAs, one polymeric additive defined by poly(ε-caprolactone), and at least one dispersant additive and/or solvent, to obtain a colloidal solution; evaporating the solvent of the colloidal solution, and forming a paste with the components dispersed therein; drying the paste to remove the residual solvents and control the granulometry of the polymer composite; extruding the polymeric composite and moulding the latter in an implant body.||11-26-2009|
|20090253816||COMPOSITION FOR PREPARING A BIODEGRADABLE POLYURETHANE- BASED FOAM AND A BIODEGRADABLE POLYURETHANE FOAM - Composition for preparing a biodegradable polyurethane-based foam and a biodegradable polyurethane foam, comprising mixtures based on poly(hydroxybutyrate) polymer, polyols of renewable source, isocyanates and additives, with the object of preparing biodegradable polyurethane foams. In the process, the poly(hydroxybutyrate) plus the polyol, the isocyanate and the additives are previously mixed in specific mixers; once the homogenization is reached, the mixture is poured in mold for growing. After curing, the resulting product presents foam characteristics, with its density, toughness and cell size varying according to the proportion of the reagents and allowing the manufacture of several products.||10-08-2009|
