  • Patent number: 8596428
    Abstract: An equalizer device for a parking brake including an equalizer body that is formed by connecting paired side plates, which extend parallel to each other from a back plate so as to form a U-shape and a synthetic resin member that is fixedly arranged inside the equalizer body. The equalizer body includes paired engagement holes, paired insertion holes, and paired slits. Portions of the back plate, at which the engagement holes are formed, serve as the engagement portions. The synthetic resin member has a substantially flat plate shape that is arranged so as to face a portion of an inner face of a first side plate. The portion is a part of the U-shape, and extends parallel to the first side plate. The synthetic resin member includes paired gate portions and an engagement lug. The synthetic resin member is fitted to the equalizer body by the engagement lug.

  • Patent number: 7722963
    Abstract: The present invention provides a metallic coating having a sheen and having a discontinuous structure at high productivity and low cost by using sputtering. A resin product includes a resin base material, and a metallic coating having a sheen and a discontinuous structure that is deposited on the resin base material so as to include a portion in which a high-formation metal that relatively readily forms a discontinuous structure when using vacuum vapor deposition is sputtered, and thereafter, a low-formation metal that does not relatively readily form a discontinuous structure when using vacuum vapor deposition is sputtered. The high-formation metal and the low-formation metal are selected from at least two species of metals whose crystal structures are identical and whose lattice constant difference is within 10%.
