  • Patent number: 9752744
    Abstract: The invention relates to a LED vehicle headlight. Each light unit has a LED board with a luminous surface and an optical device associated with a reflector and/or a lens. A reflector holder carries the optical devices of the light units and is formed in one piece with the latter. A board holder is fastened detachably to the reflector holder. The board holder has a receptacle for each light unit, and the LED board has contact surfaces that come into contact with corresponding contact surfaces on the reflector holder to position the LED board with respect to the assigned optical device when the board holder is fixed on the reflector holder. Each light unit has elastic pressurizing means that act on the LED board in order to press its contact surfaces against the contact surfaces of the reflector holder when the board holder is fixed on the reflector holder.

  • Patent number: 7504090
    Abstract: The wax product for treating or setting up a hairstyle or hairdo includes a composition containing at least one wax or wax-like substance, at least one non-volatile liquid hydrophobic oil and at least one volatile or easily volatilized hydrophobic substance that is a liquid or gas at room temperature. Because of the presence of the volatile substance in the composition a soft wax easily worked in the hair is obtained when the composition is applied to the hair. This soft wax hardens on the hair when the volatile ingredients evaporate. When the composition includes a propellant gas a wax with a larger surface area (wax snow) is produced, which is likewise easily worked into the hair and very effectively fixes or sets the hair.
