  • Publication number: 20150177426
    Abstract: The present subject matter provides a transitional layer and related methods, used to increase the transmission or reflection of light between two mediums having different indices of refraction. The transitional layer is disposed between the two mediums and the transmission or reflection of light is increased by the interaction of light with the transitional layer. The transitional layer has light scattering particles dispersed therein, a single-layer gradient index-of-refraction, a multi-layer gradient index-of-refraction, alternating layers of high and low index-of-refraction, or a combination thereof, in order to increase the transmission or reflectance of light between the two mediums.

  • Publication number: 20140329356
    Abstract: An acrylate-based curable printing medium is disclosed. Acrylates, in the form of monomers, dimers, trimers and oligomers, as well as resins, form an interpenetrating polymer network by crosslinking, which is effected by heat, and optionally peroxide curing agents. Formulations can be tailored to achieve desired properties of the cured polymer including film hardness, burnout properties, and adhesion to glass. Such properties are adjusted by manipulating the relative proportions of the acrylic monomers, oligomers and resins that are used as a ceramic medium or vehicle.

  • Patent number: 8691332
    Abstract: A silver conductive coating possessing infrared absorbing properties is disclosed. The coating is made from a blend of one or more micron size silver powders and/or flakes together with carbon black, inorganic pigment, glass frit, and powdered selenium or bismuth metal. The foregoing dry ingredients are pasted with an organic vehicle, applied to a substrate, and fired at a temperature of up to 1400° F. The coating absorbs infrared radiation beyond the decomposition of carbon black, thus allowing higher firing temperatures and hence shorter firing times.
