  • Patent number: 11046867
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a coating composition, which includes: (A) a polysiloxane resin, including a unit derived from a siloxane monomer, a siloxane oligomer, or a combination thereof; and (B) inorganic particles, including first SiO2 particles with a particle size ranging from 15 nm to 100 nm, and second SiO2 particles with a particle size ranging from 3 nm to <15 nm. The present invention further relates to a coating layer for enhancing light transmittance that is formed by the coating composition. According to the present invention, by using at least two types of inorganic particles with specific particle sizes to form a geometric stack, the space of pores can be increased, and therefore, the porosity of the coating layer can be increased, thereby reducing the optical refractive index of the coating layer and achieving an effect of enhancing light transmittance.

  • Patent number: 11034136
    Abstract: Improved automotive security has led to an increase in carjacking and smash and grab crimes. Tempered glass offers little resistant to attacks. Laminated glass improves penetration resistance but only by several seconds. By including a stiff frame in the laminate and a plastic interior 5 layer, the present invention significantly increases the amount of time that an occupant has to react and possibly escape an attack by driving off or for the attack to be detected. In the event of an accident, the invention also provides improved occupant retention, especially for movable glass that is not bonded to the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10993318
    Abstract: A flexible polymeric film includes a reinforcement layer and a base layer. The reinforcement layer includes a lamella and a plurality of columns. The columns are on a surface of the lamella. Each of the columns extends in a direction and is separated from a neighboring column by a gap. The base layer is coupled to the columns and portions of the surface of the lamella in the gaps between the columns. The base layer is less rigid than the reinforcement layer. The flexible polymeric film can be produced by spraying a precursor onto a substrate. A layer of the precursor is formed on the substrate and exposed to an energy beam to form a preliminary film on the substrate. The columns can be formed from a plurality of portions of the preliminary film. The lamella is formed on top of the preliminary film that is formed with the columns.
