  • Publication number: 20190210914
    Abstract: A layered structure having high adhesive properties, and high hardness or excellent transparency, is prepared on a base material such as a resin. A layered structure including: an organic-inorganic hybrid member containing a primary inorganic particle and an organic polymer covalently bound to each other, wherein the primary inorganic particle forms a network containing the polymer; and a particle aggregate layer containing a secondary particle which is deposited on the organic-inorganic hybrid member and is composed of an inorganic material or a metallic material; wherein in the organic-inorganic hybrid member, the primary inorganic particle and the secondary particle have different crystal particle sizes.

  • Patent number: 5452571
    Abstract: A winder-to-double twister connecting system, which comprises a yarn end picking device for picking out a yarn end from a package set on a tray, a package lifter for inserting a two-piled empty bobbin mounting adapter received from an overhead conveyor, into the tray on a circulating conveyor line, and for transferring a two-piled package mounting adapter to the overhead conveyor; a bobbin mover for pulling off, from an adapter, an empty bobbin coming on the circulating conveyor line; a package loader for taking up the package with the yarn end picked out from the tray and mounting the package to the adapter; and a bobbin stripper for removing remaining yarn from the empty bobbin received from the bobbin mover.

  • Patent number: 4617258
    Abstract: A silver halide photographic material is disclosed. It contains per 100 g of silver at least 40 mg of a water-soluble compound comprising an element of group VIII of the periodic table and having a molecular weight of at least 100, and 1.2 to 120 mg of a black-and-white silver halide developing agent. The material has improved gradation characteristics and is subject to minimum variation in photographic characteristics.

  • Patent number: 4477561
    Abstract: A silver halide photographic material having formed on a support two or more layers that are sensitive to the lights of substantially the same spectral region but different in light sensitivity is disclosed. At least one of the layers other than the one having maximum light sensitivity contains at least 40 mg, per 100 g of silver, of a water-soluble compound containing an element of Group VIII of the periodic table which has a molecular weight of 100 or more. The material has a wide latitude for exposure, and this latitude will not vary greatly with time during storage.
