  • Publication number: 20010003596
    Abstract: A multi-stage thickening composition for use in facilitating the handling and continuous packaging of a food product, and for providing a desired final shape and texture for the food product. Relatively rapid-setting and slower-setting consumable gels form one preferred thickening composition. The rapid-setting gel allows the food product to be shaped and packaged, while the slower-setting gel allows the food product to be provided with desired texture characteristics that appeal to the consumer.

  • Patent number: 5387181
    Abstract: A lounge chair accommodating an occupant in a reclining position while exposing him to a stress-relieving environment. The chair includes a couch whose frame supports a bed formed by an array of parallel dowels contoured to define an intermediate posterior region having extending therefrom a front thigh and leg region and rear back and head region. The bed contour is adjustable to conform to the natural contours of the occupant. The couch is mounted on a base and is angularly adjustable thereon. Supported on the frame below the bed is a water trough contoured to define an intermediate sump section having extending therefrom front and rear waterfall sections, each provided with a set of deflectors so situated as to cause the flowing water to cascade into the sump section. Coupled to the trough is a pump supplying water to the input of the front and rear waterfall sections, the water collected in the sump section being returned to the pump and recirculated.

  • Patent number: 5376504
    Abstract: Photoresists are disclosed that display increased sensitivity, measured as lithographic potential, when compared to known photoresists that contain melamine resin as a crosslinker. The melamine resin in these photoresists contains a higher percent by weight of monomeric hexamethoxymethylmelamine than in known resists.

  • Patent number: 4814464
    Abstract: An improved process for making N-alkylpyrrolidones from a maleic derivative or a succinic derivative which involves catalytically reducing the maleic derivative with hydrogen to succinic anhydride, if the maleic derivative is the starting point, converting succinic anhydride to a N-alkylsuccinimide by ammonolysis-alkylation with a C.sub.1 and C.sub.4 alkanol and ammonia, and catalytically reducing the resulting N-alkylsuccinimide to the N-alkylpyrrolidone.
