  • Publication number: 20190227195
    Abstract: The present invention aims to provide an optical layered body that has excellent interlayer adhesiveness, particularly even in outdoor use, and also has highly excellent anti-blocking properties. The present invention relates to an optical layered body including: a substrate film; a hard coat layer containing silica fine particles on at least one surface of the substrate film; and a dry film layer on a surface of the hard coat layer opposite to the substrate film side surface of the hard coat layer, wherein the silica fine particles are exposed on the dry film layer side surface of the hard coat layer; the dry film layer is directly formed on the surface of the hard coat layer on which the silica fine particles are exposed; the hard coat layer before the formation of the dry film layer has projections and depressions on the surface on which the dry film layer is to be formed; the hard coat layer has an average silica fine particle abundance in ten 0.2 ?m×0.

  • Patent number: 7754033
    Abstract: A method of improvement of toughness of a heat affected zone in a multi-layer welded joint, a fillet welded joint, and a one-pass or several-pass large heat input welded joint of a steel plate is provided, that is, a method of improvement of toughness of a heat affected zone in a welded joint of a steel plate characterized subjecting a surface of a heat affected zone formed by a last pass of a multi-layer welded joint of a steel plate to impacts by an ultrasonic vibration tool or shot peening by ultrasonic vibration steel balls to thereby make an average of longitudinal axis of crystal grains up to a depth of 2 mm or more from the surface of the steel plate in the microstructure adjacent to a fusion line (FL) of a weld metal and a steel plate matrix in said heat affected zone formed by the last pass the equivalent of the crystal grain size of the steel plate matrix before the welding at a depth of ¼ of a thickness t from the surface of the steel plate.

  • Patent number: 7695825
    Abstract: A circularly welded joint featuring excellent fatigue strength obtained by welding the ends of two pieces of steel plates perpendicularly together and used for the welded structures such as buildings, ships, bridges, construction machinery and off-shore structures, a method of producing the circularly welded joints and a welded structure using the circularly welded joints are provided. A circularly welded joint is obtained by welding the ends of two pieces of steel plates perpendicularly together. Between the two pieces of the steel plates, at least the steel plate on the side on which the main stress is exerted is one that suppresses the propagation of cracks due to fatigue and, preferably, one having the compressive residual stress in the surface layer of the steel plate.
