  • Patent number: 10538690
    Abstract: Adhesive formulations are described that upon sufficient curing and drying, are not sticky or tacky at room temperature, yet can be heat bonded. The adhesives are particularly useful for use in bonding brake components together and find wide application in vehicle brake systems. When used in such systems, the adhesives do not flow in parking applications yet sufficiently dampen vibration in slowing or stopping applications to counter brake squeal. The adhesives can be provided in a tape form and used for bonding brake shims to brake pads in electronic parking brake systems.

  • Patent number: 10486849
    Abstract: A re-closable carton device is disclosed for transporting footwear and other articles. The re-closable carton device comprises a pair of opposing side panels, a base panel joined to the side panels and having a pair of opposing side flanges, and a lid closure side panel hingedly attached to the rear side panel. The lid closure side panel comprises female recess areas which engage with the male locking tabs of the front side panel. Specifically, the male locking tabs engage the female recess areas such that the male locking tabs partially enter the female recess areas and press against the female recess areas to distort the front flap of the lid closure side panel and to produce an audible sound or “click” when the carton device is fully closed to alert a user that the carton device has been reclosed adequately.

  • Patent number: 10388191
    Abstract: Water-activatable, linerless adhesive articles and related methods are described. The adhesive articles utilize a dry, non-tacky protective layer for protecting the adhesive layer from contamination and therefore do not require a release liner. The protective layer includes at least one of amorphous polyvinyl alcohol and poly(ethylene oxide). The adhesive articles are bonded to a substrate by applying a polar solvent, such as water, to the protective layer, which mix to form a tacky material. The tacky material forms a weak, temporary bond with the substrate and allows the adhesive articles to be repositioned on the substrate. The tacky material gradually pools together at the substrate/adhesive article interface to expose the underlying adhesive layer. The exposed adhesive layer then forms a permanent bond with the substrate.
