  • Patent number: 11141950
    Abstract: A glass sealing system includes a glass portion and a first adhesive layer disposed along an exterior surface of the glass portion. The glass sealing system also includes a cover with a first surface secured to the first adhesive layer and a second surface opposing the first surface. The glass sealing system includes a second adhesive layer disposed on the second surface and configured to secure the cover to a support structure.

  • Patent number: 11124608
    Abstract: A material with significant protection properties from galactic cosmic radiation and solar energetic particles. Hydrogen-rich benzoxazines which are particularly effective for shielding against such radiation. Benzoxazine resin meets the processing requirements for use with ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber as a hydrogen-rich reinforcement: cure of the resin at 120° C. This highly reactive benzoxazine resin also exhibits low viscosity and adequate shelf life.

  • Publication number: 20200009779
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention include a novel interfacial surface generator (ISG) design comprised of helical channels and associated methods of using the new design. The novel design addresses processing challenges associated with conventional ISG designs used in layer multiplying coextrusion systems. Embodiments of the present invention may be used in either a static configuration or “active” configuration. In one active configuration, two counter-rotating cylindrical rods and/or moving belts may be used to induce drag, or Couette, flow. Conveyance of materials through the ISG may be due to pressure driven flow, drag flow, or a combination of these.

  • Patent number: 9302899
    Abstract: A method of conducting a fueling transaction at a fuel dispenser. The fuel dispenser includes a flow meter operatively connected to internal fuel flow piping. The method comprises the step of providing a displacement sensor for generating information representative of an amount of fuel delivered through the flow meter. The displacement sensor comprises at least one transponder operatively connected to the flow meter. The method also comprises providing at least one interrogator electronics configured for remote electronic communication with the at least one transponder and authorizing the fueling transaction. Finally, the method comprises communicating with the at least one transponder using the at least one interrogator electronics during the fueling transaction. Fuel dispensers and flow meter assemblies comprising displacement sensors having transponders and/or capacitive sensing elements are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 5439987
    Abstract: A thermoplastic molding composition having a high neat deflection temperature but a relatively low melt extrusion temperature is formed by blending a polyetherimide with about 35 to about 80 weight percent of a copolyester of terephthalic and/or isophthalic acid and a glycol component comprising ethylene glycol and up to about 60 mol percent of 1,4-cyclohexanedimethanol. The blend also has a high flexural modulus and can be used to form plastic articles that can be molded at moderate temperatures but retain flexural strength at elevated temperatures.
