  • Patent number: 5020704
    Abstract: A garment hanger having a base plate and a pair of front plates independently hingedly attached to the base plate. Each front plate is positioned relative to the base plate to form a gripping surface adjacent one edge of the plate. There are springs urging the front plates towards the base plate at the gripping surface.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 4839456
    Abstract: A self-adhering polymeric composition for use as a drag-reducing fouling-release coating and a method for making such composition. The composition, which is formed by mixing a base polymer with a curing catalyst and immediately adding trace amounts of a inhibitor modifier to the mixture, produces a high integrity coating with a surface extended network of differentially cross-linked chains that reach into and control the flow/adhesion properties in the liquid phase.

  • Patent number: 4623593
    Abstract: Polymer compositions and methods of making them are provided. Selected surface layers of the polymers, integral with the polymer body, possess pressure sensitive adhesive properties. The polymers are cured with the selected surfaces in contact with a cross-linking inhibition agent which controls the amount of cross-linking of the polymer taking place at the surface. The polymers are useful as, or in conjunction with, prosthetic appliances which are adhered to skin or other substrates.
