  • Publication number: 20200239654
    Abstract: A surface modifying composition for modifying a surface of a formed product made of high-density polyethylene or ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, the composition comprising: a copolymer having a unit of a first monomer having an aliphatic group having 10 or more carbon atoms and a unit of a second monomer having any of an amino group, an epoxy group, and an ether group, and a solvent having a boiling point of 100° C. or more and being at least one selected from the group consisting of a halogen-based solvent, an alkane solvent, a cycloalkane solvent, a dicycloalkane solvent, an aromatic solvent, and a nitro-based solvent.

  • Patent number: 5761847
    Abstract: A plant-growing system includes a covering material filled with a substrate for growing plants. The covering material has a bag form or a tubular form and is made of a water-impermeable resin sheet of woven or nonwoven fabric having a basis weight of 20 to 100 g/m.sup.2, a visible-ray reflectance of more than 60%, and an air-permeability of 10 to 200 sec/100 cc. Thus, the substrate does not suffer oxygen shortage, thereby promoting healthy growth of plant roots. Excellent air-permeability prevents an excessive rise in moisture and temperature within the plant-growing system. Further, since excess water is drained from the substrate to maintain a constant water level within the substrate, watering is easy to perform, and excess watering does not cause root rot. In a plant-growing method, the plant-growing system is placed on a ground surface while the covering material is held by a metallic part at its bottom as well as at its both side walls or single side wall.

  • Patent number: 5747419
    Abstract: A plant growing agent contains a blue pigment that contains, as a main ingredient, a compound represented by MFe?Fe(CN).sub.6 ! (M is an alkali metal or an ammonium group, and one Fe is of divalent, while the other Fe is of trivalent), and a substance for changing the cuticular of the surface layer of a plant so as to facilitate permeation of the blue pigment into the interior of the tissue of the plant. In a plant growing method, a thick stock solution is first prepared by adding a surfactant and a solvent into a mixture of the above-described blue pigment and the above-described substance for changing the cuticular of the surface layer of a plant so as to facilitate permeation of the blue pigment into the interior of the tissue of the plant. The thick stock solution is diluted 5-100 times with a solvent, and is sprayed onto a plant to be grown.

  • Patent number: 5228235
    Abstract: An apparatus for promoting generation of exhaled organic compounds from trees comprised of a potted tree container, a pot stand means mounted on the bottom of the container, the pot stand means is comprised of a plurality of trees in pot trays arranged at intervals so that contact can be made between branched of adjacent trees. A water supply for supplying water to potted trees is provided and an illuminator is mounted in container with, apparatus for rotating all or a part of pot trays. An air suction port for sucking air into the potted tree container, and an air exhaust system for discharging air containing volatile organic compounds released by the potted trees into the interior of a room are provided. All or a part of trees are rotated while in contact with each other such that each tree is mechanically stimulated by an adjacent tree so that the stimulation from adjacent trees increases the amount of volatile organic compounds released from the trees.
