  • Patent number: 5250607
    Abstract: An interpenetrating polymer system prepared from a mixture of a moisture-cured prepolymer component and an elastomeric component which is non-reactive with the prepolymer component, wherein exposure of the mixture to ambient moisture cures the prepolymer component entrapping the elastomeric component and forming a product which is essentially thermoset. The product may be essentially non-foamed or highly foamed and and either tack-free or self-adhesive. It is particularly suitable for use as sealing gaskets, sheet stock, tubing, and as sealant-encapsulants.

  • Patent number: 5225004
    Abstract: Bulk rapidly solidified magnetic materials having a density of greater than 90%, a thickness of at least 250 microns, and preferably a low oxygen content, are produced by a liquid dynamic compaction process which, depending upon the chosen operating conditions, can yield materials ranging from crystalline to partially crystalline to amorphous. The materials so produced are directly useful, i.e. without having to be reduced to a powder and consolidated into a shape, to produce permanent magnets.

  • Patent number: 5139696
    Abstract: Novel thermotropic liquid crystal complexes are produced by hydrogen bonding, essentially along the long axes, of two different thermotropic mesogenic compounds. The resultant new mesogenic complexes so produced exhibit mesogenic behavior not only over an expanded temperature range than both of the parent compounds, but also at a higher temperature than for either compound individually. This invention is applicable to both nematic and smectic mesogens.

  • Patent number: 5072283
    Abstract: A flexible circuit film is used in a surface mountable pre-formed chip carrier cavity package as a direct interconnect between the integrated circuit chip and external bonding pads on a printed circuit board. The IC chip carrier of the present invention is comprised of a square or rectangular base having a central cavity; an IC chip mounted in the cavity and held therein by an adhesive; a lid having a complementary shape to the upper surface of the base; and a flexible circuit sheet sandwiched between the base and lid. The flexible circuit conforms to the top surface of the base due to various cuts or cutouts therein depending upon the specific package construction. Etched copper circuitry on the flex circuit forms interconnects between I/O pads on the IC chip and the outer periphery of the package. The package enables the use of more than 80 and up to more than 300 I/O leads per chip. The base, circuit film, and lid are bonded together with a suitable adhesive.
