  • Patent number: 6843303
    Abstract: A method for making sand particle foundry mold members. Sand particles are coated with an aqueous dispersion of a suitable binder material such as a gelatin gel. The moist gelatin coated particles are gravity fed into a pattern box for the mold member and subjected to multi-axis vibration to pack the sand in the pattern box. The moist sand is then heated with radio frequency energy to promote binder flow to the corners of the particles, and air flow is initiated to transport water from the mass of particles to harden the mass of particles into the mold member.

  • Patent number: 6124029
    Abstract: An oriented film composed of thermoplastic polymers is described which comprises at least one vacuole-containing layer. The vacuole-containing layer comprises particulate hollow bodies which are essentially composed of a polymer which is incompatible with the thermoplastic polymer. A process for producing the film is also described.

  • Patent number: 5996682
    Abstract: A mold for a prototype metal casting or the like may advantageously be made by forming a casting pattern of adhesively bonded aggregate particles using a binder containing a principle constituent that is soluble in supercritical carbon dioxide; forming a rigid shell mold about the pattern of materials that are unaffected by supercritical carbon dioxide; thereafter exposing the pattern and mold combination to supercritical carbon dioxide to remove the pattern binder adhesive and leave unbonded aggregate particles in the mold and removing the aggregate particles from the mold to leave a mold cavity that faithfully defines the pattern shape.

  • Patent number: 5908587
    Abstract: Method of making porous, fibrillose bodies from fibrils bonded together into a self-supporting structure. A mixture of fibrils and a viscous, non-newtonian, liquid vehicle including an organic hydrosorbent and water is (1) injected into a mold, (2) frozen in the mold to form a frozen precursor of the article, (3) ejected from the mold while still frozen, (4) freeze-dried, and (5) finally heated to remove the hydrosorbent and bond the particles together. The process is particularly effective for making fibrillose preforms for infiltrating with metal in the manufacture of metal matrix composites.

  • Patent number: 5837373
    Abstract: A foundry mold member made from a plurality of sand particles bound together with a binder which is concentrated at the contact points between contiguous sand particles and consists essentially of gelatins having a Bloom rating less than about 175 Bloom grams. The sand particles are first coated with a sol of the gelatin, cooled to ambient temperature and conditioned to a prescribed water content necessary to effect migration of the gelatin to the interparticle contact points upon heating of the coated particles in a pattern mold.

  • Patent number: 5811185
    Abstract: This invention provides a polyolefinic multilayer film which has a base layer containing polypropylene and at least one outer layer. The outer layer contains at least 50% by weight of a propylene/butylene resin composition. The propylene/butylene resin composition has a low degree of crystallinity and is modified by a surface treatment, e.g. corona treatment. The surface treatment raises the minimum heat-sealing temperature to the range of 85.degree. to 110.degree. C. and unexpectedly reduces the film's tendency to block. The resulting multilayer film is useful in packaging.
