  • Patent number: 9963843
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for depositing a structured paint material on a surface. According to one embodiment, the method comprises introducing an initiator to a paint composition comprising methyl methacrylate (MMA) and a first retroreflective element to produce a liquid mixture, depositing the liquid mixture on a surface of a substrate to produce a layer of structured paint material, and depositing a layer of a second retroreflective element onto at least a portion of an upper surface of the deposited layer of structured paint material, and wherein a coefficient of retroreflected luminance of the layer of structured paint material is at least 1400 mcd/m2/lux.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 6911532
    Abstract: The invention relates generally to compositions of and methods for obtaining and using a polypeptide other than BCL-2 that affects programmed vertebrate cell death. The invention relates as well to polynucleotides encoding those polypeptides, recombinant vectors carrying those sequences, the recombinant host cells including either the sequences or vectors, and recombinant polypeptides. The invention further provides methods for using the isolated, recombinant polypeptides in assays designed to select and improve substances capable of altering programmed cell death for use in diagnostic, drug design and therapeutic applications.

  • Patent number: 6632867
    Abstract: An adhesive caulking material comprising granular solid colored particles dispersed in a base formulation is disclosed. The adhesive caulking material exhibits a cosmetic capacity to take on the appearance of a natural or synthetic solid substrate. A method is provided for producing the adhesive caulking material comprising the steps of: (a) providing a base formulation exhibiting a desired background color; and (b) adding to the base formulation an amount of granular solid colored particles effective to achieve a desired appearance. The invention also relates to colored solid chips comprising a coagulated or aggregated mixture comprising a polymeric resin and an amount of one or more pigments sufficient to obtain a desired single- or multi-colored appearance. The chips have a granular shape and have a size in the range from about 0.25 mm to about 20 mm in diameter.

  • Publication number: 20020065353
    Abstract: A method for producing a colored adhesive caulking material by: (a) providing in a resealable container a caulk forming composition which can be thickened by contact with a pigmented composition; (b) adding a pigmented composition of a predetermined color to the container; and (c) shaking the container, thereby thickening the caulk forming composition to form a colored adhesive caulking material.

  • Patent number: 6302575
    Abstract: A jig is described that is suitable for mounting in a paint shaker. The jig includes a first (top) section and a second (bottom) section. Each of the top section and the bottom section includes a respective substantially cylindrical frame having a respective outer surface and an inner surface. Each respective inner surface has a plurality of respective openings for holding tubular containers, such as caulking tubes. The top section and the bottom section fit together in direct, seating contact to form a substantially cylindrical jig capable of holding a plurality of caulking tubes. The bottom section also has a plurality of third openings for receiving nozzle portions of the caulking tubes. When the top section and the bottom section are fitted together, with caulking tubes contained therein, nozzles of the caulking tubes do not project out from the top section.
