  • Publication number: 20230106433
    Abstract: An acrylic multilayer foil includes a layer in which silica particles are uniformly distributed in an acrylic polymer matrix and at least one further layer. Due to adhesive promoting properties of the layer containing silica particles, the multilayer foil can be easily coated or laminated onto a substrate. The foil has a high weathering resistance and excellent mechanical properties. Therefore, the multilayer foil is highly suitable for surface-protection of materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and for use in high-pressure laminates (HPLs).

  • Publication number: 20230100304
    Abstract: An acrylic multilayer foil includes a layer A in which silica particles are uniformly distributed in an acrylic polymer matrix and a coating layer D. Due to adhesive promoting properties of the layer A containing silica particles, the coating layer D can be advantageously applied onto the layer A. The foil has a high weathering resistance and excellent mechanical properties. Therefore, the foil is highly suitable for surface-protection of materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and for use in high-pressure laminates (HPLs).

  • Patent number: 11276943
    Abstract: An omni-directional antenna including a plurality of stacked omni-directional antenna core assemblies. Each antenna core assembly comprises a conductive ground plane defining an axis normal to the ground plane and a plurality of conductive plates projecting orthogonally from the conductive ground plane and angularly spaced about the axis. Each of the plates defines an edge extending radially outboard from the central axis and diverging away from the conductive ground plane as the radial distance increases from the central axis. The edge defines a first region defining an acute angle relative to the conductive ground plane and a second region, radially outboard of the first region defining an arcuate shape.
