Renner Kenner has obtained thousands of patents over the years for our clients. The "This Week in Our History...” section below is an example of a patent that was written and/or prosecuted by Renner Kenner.
On October 18, 2016, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. Pat. No. 9,469,741, entitled “Polymers Functionalized With Heterocyclic Nitrile Compounds.” The functionalized polymers are useful in the manufacture of tire components, such as sidewalls and tread. Tire components made by using the inventive functionalized polymers exhibit reduced hysteresis, i.e., less loss of mechanical energy to heat.
