  • Publication number: 20220313614
    Abstract: A method for forming encapsulated nicotine granules (ENGs) includes heating a first mixture to form a molten mixture, the first mixture includes one or more polyols; cooling the molten mixture to a first temperature to form a cooled molten mixture; adding at least one of nicotine and one or more nicotine salts to the cooled molten mixture to form a second mixture; cooling the second mixture to a second temperature to form one or more solidified structures, where the second temperature is different from the first temperature; and fragmenting the one or more solidified structures so as to form a plurality of encapsulated nicotine granules. The first temperature may be between about 120° C. and about 200° C. The second temperature may be below a glass transition temperature (Tg) of the one or more polyols. For example, the second temperature may be between about 65° C. and about 200° C.

  • Patent number: 11242469
    Abstract: The aim is to provide an adhesive tape that effectively protects an electronic construction from permeants, especially water, and that at the same time has good gap-filling qualities. To solve this problem an adhesive tape is proposed that has in the following order:—a carrier layer without barrier effect at least towards water and with a WVTR of at least 1 g/(m2*d) (38° C., 90% relative humidity, 50 ?m layer thickness); —a layer comprising at least one getter material capable of sorbing at least water; —a water barrier ply; and—a layer of pressure-sensitive adhesive, where the carrier layer bears an outward-facing release layer and/or the layer of pressure-sensitive adhesive is lined with a release liner which has a release layer lying on the layer of pressure-sensitive adhesive.
