  • Patent number: 10697195
    Abstract: The present invention provides an extendible enclosure, having a first frame member supporting a first mesh canopy and a second frame member supporting a second mesh canopy. A sliding mechanism coupling the first frame member to the second frame member is operable to reversibly extend the enclosure between a first contracted position and a second extended position, where the first frame member is configured to slidingly engage with the second frame member so that the second frame member at least partially nests within the first frame member when in the first contracted position. The extendible enclosure is particularly suited for objects such as tools, equipment and machinery.

  • Publication number: 20070207331
    Abstract: Disclosed are azo colorant compounds containing one or more ethylenically-unsaturated groups polymerizable or copolymerizable with ethylenically-unsaturated compositions typically used in coating compositions. The azo colorantcompounds are polymerizable by photopolymerization or free radical polymerization techniques with ethylenically-unsaturated monomers. The copolymerized colorants produce colored compositions such as colored acrylic polymers, e.g., polymers produced from acrylate and methacrylate esters, colored polystyrenes, and similar colored polymeric materials derived from other ethylenically-unsaturated monomers. The ethylenically-unsaturated colorant compounds may be used in coatings that are applied to wood, glass, metal, thermoplastics and the like.
