  • Patent number: 7399519
    Abstract: Certain chemical compositions provide superior repellency, durability, and soil (stain) release properties when applied to a textile or fabric. Compositions may contain a fluorochemical-containing soil release component or a crosslinking component, or both, and also may contain an antimicrobial agent. In some applications, the crosslinking component may be hydrophobic, so as to be generally not compatible with aqueous environments. Compositions having less than about 6 weight percent of a fluorochemical-containing soil release component, based upon the weight of the treating composition, may be employed in some applications.

  • Patent number: 7361416
    Abstract: A donor film for a flat panel display and a method of fabricating an Organic Light Emitting Device using the same. The donor film for the flat panel display has a base film, a Light-To-Heat Conversion layer disposed on the base film, a transfer layer disposed on the Light-To-Heat Conversion layer, and a buffer layer interposed between the Light-To-Heat Conversion layer and the transfer layer, wherein the buffer layer includes a material whose glass transition temperature (Tg) is lower than 25° C. The donor film for the flat panel display interposes the buffer layer between the Light-To-Heat Conversion layer of the donor substrate and the transfer layer, thereby improving the adhesion between the transfer layer and the donor substrate. Therefore, the organic layer pattern formed on an acceptor substrate by transferring the transfer layer using the donor film does not include any defect.
