  • Publication number: 20200098222
    Abstract: Systems and methods for controlling access to wireless gaming devices and networks are provided. For example, access is controlled through one or more levels of security check, such as a hard security check instead of or in addition to a soft security check. In a hard security check, the user employs an apparatus such as a card or other physical token that can be used to access the wireless gaming device. Such an apparatus may communicate information that identifies the user to the device or may simply be used to produce a signal without which the device is locked to users.

  • Patent number: 4385019
    Abstract: A process is provided for forming a polymeric material which can be developed into a shaped polymeric structure comprising an active material encradled in a porous, fiber-containing polymeric composition. In the process, the active material is mixed with a tripartite system comprising a fibrillatable polymer, a support-contributing polymer and a pore-former. When such a system is mixed and developed with an active material, such as LaNi.sub.5, an active composition is produced which may be used, for example, as a hydrogen collecting or storing material.

  • Patent number: 4131637
    Abstract: A process for preparing a polymeric material grafted throughout its bulk is provided. A polymer having finely divided particles is blended with silica and maintained in a fluidized bed. The polymer is activated by passing ozone uniformly through the blend to initiate incipient labile sites in the molecular structure of the polymer. The polymer is then reacted with an ethylenically unsaturated ionogenic monomer to graft polymerize the monomer onto the polymer. The grafted polymer may then be converted to a salt form by reacting with alkaline compounds. The resultant powders can be fused into any desired shape by conventional polymer plastic processes.
