  • Publication number: 20080295958
    Abstract: A polyolefin resin drawn sheet 4 is laminated on at least one face of a sheet-form core material 6 having a density of 30 to 300 kgf/m3. At this time, a sheet or film 5 made of a bonding synthetic resin or rubber having a flow starting temperature lower than the thermal deformation temperature of the core material 6 and the melting point of the drawn sheet 4 is interposed between the core material 6 and the drawn sheet 4. The resultant stack product is heated to not less than the flow starting temperature of the synthetic resin or the rubber and not more than the thermal deformation temperature of the core material 6 and the melting point of the drawn sheet 4. At the same time of or after the heating, the stack product is pressed to apply a compression strain of 0.01 to 10% to the core material 6.

  • Publication number: 20030087079
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide polyolefin resin composite laminates prepared only from polyolefin resin materials which are environmentally friendly and flexible, the laminates being lightweight, having high rigidity, remaining free of decay, showing no dimensional variations if subjected to temperature or humidity variations and being amenable to recycling. A polyolefin resin is reacted with a modifying monomer to modify the resin. A chemical blowing agent is added to the modified resin obtained, followed by kneading. The resulting expandable resin composition is shaped into a sheet. A facing material is laminated to one surface of the expandable sheet obtained, the facing material having a strength capable of inhibiting the sheet from expanding in in-plane directions when the sheet is heated for expansion. The expandable sheet is heated for expansion to obtain a polyolefin resin composite laminate.

  • Patent number: 5864989
    Abstract: A ventilating window for ventilating the interior of a building or a structure such as a vehicle in a natural and gentle manner. A ventilating window for the exhaust of air is provided with a mechanism for automatically opening a window casement when the atmospheric pressure inside the window is higher than the outside atmospheric pressure, thereby dispensing with forced exhaust using a fan or the like. A ventilating window for the supply of air is provided with a mechanism for automatically closing a window casement when the atmospheric pressure outside the window is higher than the inside atmospheric pressure, thereby preventing a strong wind from blowing into the interior. A ventilating window for both exhaust and supply of air is provided with both such opening mechanism and closing mechanism.

  • Patent number: 5368798
    Abstract: An in-mold labeled vessel with an elongated bottom projection and a method for producing such a vessel is disclosed, wherein a label for in-mold labeling is provided with a bottom portion and side wall portions. Notches are formed in folded portions of the label as connections between the bottom portion and the side wall portions of the label. Alternatively, the label is formed using material and of a predetermined thickness which permit breakage of the label at a particular resin temperature and an internal mold pressure. In order to form an elongated bottom projection integrally with the vessel bottom, the label is loaded into a mold and injection molding is performed, whereby the molding resin which has been injected flows out through the notches or through the broken folded portions into an elongated bottom projection-forming recess formed in the mold.

  • Patent number: 5193711
    Abstract: A label comprising a bottom wall section and side wall sections has cuts formed into respective said side wall sections which extend along extensions of opposite side edges of said bottom wall section. There are provided folding lines extending between forward ends of the respectively paired cuts transversely thereof and/or cutouts intermittently arranged on imaginary lines corresponding to respective said folding lines so that said side wall sections may be folded upwardly with respect to said bottom wall section to define a lower end of the label located below the inner bottom surface of the container in the proximities of respective curved corners. A mold consisting of a core and a cavity is loaded with the label and then the in-mold labeling operation is carried out with injected resin.A surface of the mold core may be provided with injected resin guide grooves or the like to form thickened areas extending along the label folds or along the inner surface of the container's bottom.
