  • Publication number: 20220307261
    Abstract: An exemplary shingle includes at least one coated shingle sheet defining a headlap portion and a tab portion each having opposed upper and lower surfaces. A first line of adhesive is adhered to one of the upper surface of the headlap portion and the lower surface of the tab portion, and includes a first thermally activated adhesive material. A second line of adhesive is adhered to one of the upper surface of the headlap portion and the lower surface of the tab portion, and includes a second thermally activated adhesive material having a minimum activation temperature less than a minimum activation temperature of the first thermally activated adhesive material.

  • Publication number: 20220297956
    Abstract: A method of making a laminated shingle is provided. The method includes coating a shingle mat with roofing asphalt to make an asphalt-coated sheet, adhering a reinforcement member to a portion of the asphalt-coated sheet, covering the asphalt-coated sheet, and optionally covering the reinforcement member, with granules to make a granule-covered sheet, dividing the granule-covered sheet into an overlay sheet and an underlay sheet, wherein the overlay sheet has a tab portion normally exposed on a roof and a headlap portion normally covered-up on a roof, the headlap portion having a lower zone adjacent the tab portion and an upper zone adjacent the lower zone, and wherein the reinforcement member is adhered to the lower zone of the headlap portion and laminating the overlay sheet and the underlay sheet to make the laminated shingle.

  • Publication number: 20220243835
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a self-sealing breakaway valve having a poppet-style design. The breakaway valve may be made from two body portions coupled together by one or more frangible fasteners in order to form a flow path through the breakaway valve. Each body portion may include a valve mechanism responsive to separation of the two body portions from each other to cause closure of the flow path in the respective body portion. The valve mechanisms may be releasably coupled together by a coupling key configured to restrict movement of each valve mechanism, so that the flow path within the breakaway valve remains open. Upon separation of the two body portions from each other, the coupling key may be released from the valve mechanisms allowing for closure of the flow path by the valve mechanisms thereby preventing fluid leakage from the breakaway valve.

  • Patent number: 4033336
    Abstract: A system for sensing and recording items of medical information relating to the human body includes a plurality of sensing devices responsive to various parameters associated with the human body for producing data signals determined by the sensed parameters, a code generator for producing different code signals indicative of the various parameters to be sensed, and a recorder for recording the code signals and data signals in a predetermined relationship on a recording medium. The system is embodied as an insurance data collection system for automatically measuring and recording such characteristics of the human body as height, weight, girth (waist and chest expansion), blood pressure and electrocardiogram test results on a magnetic tape cassette. In addition, an input arrangement is provided to allow the results of an independent test, e.g., a urine examination, to be recorded on the cassette.
