  • 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.

  • Patent number: 10384200
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a supported catalyst having a structure in which a metal catalyst is supported on a core-shell structured support. The support includes core particles and shell particles having a smaller particle diameter than the core particles and coated on the core particles to form a shell layer. Due to this structure, the supported catalyst can be used to produce carbon nanostructures that form a novel secondary structure in which ends of the carbon nanostructures are supported on the supported catalyst and form independent branches and the opposite ends grow and are assembled together. The novel structure is expected to find application in various fields, such as energy materials, functional composites, pharmaceuticals, batteries, and semiconductors, because of its characteristic shape.

  • Patent number: 10373920
    Abstract: Composite cards formed in accordance with the invention include a security layer comprising a hologram or diffraction grating formed at, or in, the center, or core layer, of the card. The hologram may be formed by embossing a designated area of the core layer with a diffraction pattern and depositing a thin layer of metal on the embossed layer. Additional layers may be selectively and symmetrically attached to the top and bottom surfaces of the core layer. A laser may be used to remove selected portions of the metal formed on the embossed layer, at selected stages of forming the card, to impart a selected pattern or information to the holographic region. The cards may be ‘lasered’ when the cards being processed are attached to, and part of, a large sheet of material, whereby the “lasering” of all the cards on the sheet can be done at the same time and relatively inexpensively.
