  • Patent number: 10363723
    Abstract: A functional food packaging material and a method for making the same, where the food packaging material includes: a first film comprising synthetic resin, calcium carbonate powder coated with zinc oxide, boehmite powder coated with titanium dioxide, and hydroxyapatite powder coated with iron; a second film laminated on the first film and comprising powdery particles that contain synthetic resin, loess, elvan, kaolin, zeolite, feldspar, black mica, jade, selenium and charcoal; and a third film laminated on the second film and made of synthetic film. The first film has a higher porosity than that of the second film, and the second film has a higher porosity than that of the third film. The food packaging material has improved antimicrobial activity and maximizes food storage stability. The amount of functional powder added is minimized so that the formability of the packaging material is not adversely affected.

  • Patent number: 10344163
    Abstract: A cushion-like shaped body (1) having an elastic, gel-like filling (2) in a thin-walled outer layer (3) are frequently used as seals, cushions, vibration dampers or shape compensation materials. This shaped body (1) is to be able to withstand severe strains, distortions, compressions and flexural forces, both in the event of brief severe stress and in the event of prolonged stress. For this purpose, the cushion-like shaped body (1) has a filling (2) of a polyurethane having Shore 000 hardness less than or equal to 80 and a compression set less than or equal to 14%, and this filling (2) is present within a shell having an outer layer (3) of a soft silicone material having a layer thickness of 0.075 to 1 mm and a Shore A hardness between 3A and 45A. Such a shaped body (1) is able to return to its original form without lasting elongation after tensile strain at room temperature up to 250%.

  • Patent number: 10336028
    Abstract: The first objective of this paper is to take an existing design for a shape-shifting surface (SSS) and make it waterproof, making it an effective barrier to fluid flow. The second objective is to minimize internal stresses in the device during operation, by optimizing the kinematic geometry of the SSS. The first objective was achieved by adding a waterproof membrane between the layers of the SSS, where the membrane had an origami fold pattern that enables the membrane to mimic the kinematics of the SSS. The second objective was achieved by creating a two objective optimization routine, which determined the kinematic geometry of the SSS which would minimize the internal stresses due to compression/tension of the flexure portion of the SSS during operation. The resulting SSS is easier to operate due to lower stresses, and has a membrane which prevents transverse fluid flow and mimics its motion.

  • Patent number: 10333155
    Abstract: The present invention provides a porous medium with increased hydrophobicity and a method of manufacturing the same, in which a micro-nano dual structure is provided by forming nanoprotrusions with a high aspect ratio by performing plasma etching on the surface of a porous medium with a micrometer-scale surface roughness and a hydrophobic thin film is deposited on the surface of the micro-nano dual structure, thus significantly increasing hydrophobicity. When this highly hydrophobic porous medium is used as a gas diffusion layer of a fuel cell, it is possible to efficiently discharge water produced during electrochemical reaction of the fuel cell, thus preventing flooding in the fuel cell. Moreover, it is possible to sufficiently supply reactant gases such as hydrogen and air (oxygen) to a membrane electrode assembly (MEA), thus improving the performance of the fuel cell.

  • Patent number: 10266303
    Abstract: A light-weight structural panel is formed by pultruding a closed-cell foam core embedded with high-strength reinforcing pins through a pair of heated platens along with upper and lower sheets of woven fiber glass wetted by a polymer resin. The lengths of the reinforcing pins exceeds the thickness of the core so the platens compress the skin sheets forming pockets which accumulate excess resin that, when it cures, forms a more stable panel.
