  • Publication number: 20200354615
    Abstract: A curing-reactive organopolysiloxane composition is provided. The composition generally forms a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer which is curable by a hydrosilylation reaction, has excellent adhesiveness and handleability, and is capable of maintaining high transparency over an extended period of time without developing problems such as discoloration or coloration, even when subjected to long-term aging at a high temperature and even when exposed to high-energy rays such as UV rays over an extended period of time. The curing-reactive organopolysiloxane composition can be cured via hydrosilylation reaction. A content of platinum-based metal among a solid content is in the range of from 0.1 to 50 ppm. An adhesive force of a cured layer with a thickness of 50 ?m obtained by curing the composition is not less than 0.02N/25 mm. A pressure-sensitive adhesive layer obtained by curing the composition, and an electronic part or a display device using the same, are also provided.

  • Patent number: 10724485
    Abstract: There is provided a manufacturing method of a hollow composite magnetic member having weakened magnetism in a portion of a ferromagnetic hollow member, the method includes: a step of forming a weak-magnetic area having weakened magnetism by melting and mixing a Ni-containing material and the hollow member by continuously supplying the Ni-containing material to a portion of the hollow member and heating the irradiation area having a line segment shape with the laser beam. Accordingly, since it is possible to prevent drop of a local portion of a hollow ferromagnetic pipe from being easily generated by a weak-magnetization treatment, to greatly reduce deformation generated by laser irradiation, and it becomes unnecessary to adjust the shielding gas pressure inside the pipe, the weak-magnetization treatment can be performed with higher efficiency and higher quality.
