  • Patent number: 10626993
    Abstract: The present invention improves the handling properties of a rubber-only gasket and the affixability thereof to an attachment position. To this end, the provided gasket is: obtained by combining a gasket body of the rubber-only type, and a carrier sheet that comprises a resin film and holds the gasket body in an un-adhered state; and characterized in that the gasket body is provided with an adhesive section or bonding section for adhering or bonding the gasket body to an attachment position when attaching the gasket body to the attachment position. The adhesive section or bonding section is prepared by providing the lateral surface of the gasket body with a projecting section, and coating the surface of the projecting section with an adhesive or bonding agent.

  • Patent number: 10514099
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to make it possible to easily remove a carrier film when removing the carrier film from a gasket body in a carrier-film-equipped gasket, which includes a combination of a rubber-only type gasket body and a resinous carrier film that retains the gasket body, even if the gasket body is adhered to the carrier film. To fulfill the object, a step for peeling, against an adhesive force, the carrier film from the gasket body in a state in which the gasket body is fixed to a base, is carried out. As a preliminary step of the peeling step, the gasket body is pressed from the carrier film side by a pressing device thereby to decrease the adhesion area between the gasket body and the carrier film, and the peeling step is carried out in a state in which the adhesion area has been decreased.

  • Patent number: 10465798
    Abstract: The invention provides a gasket which improves a handling workability of a rubber only type gasket. The gasket of the invention is constructed by a combination of a rubber only type gasket main body, and a carrier sheet which is made of a resin film retaining the gasket main body in a non-bonded state, and the carrier sheet is provided with an air inflow port for making air flow into a portion between the carrier sheet and the gasket main body when the gasket main body is detached from the carrier sheet. A gasket retention portion having a three-dimensional shape which is deformed along an outer shape of the gasket main body is arranged at a position which laps over the gasket main body in a plane in the carrier sheet, and the gasket main body is partly accommodated within the gasket retention portion in a thickness direction.

  • Publication number: 20090127736
    Abstract: A casting film is formed by releasing a casting dope onto a moving circumferential surface. The casting film is cooled to obtain self supporting property. A peel roller peels the casting film as a primary wet film and sends the primary wet film to a transfer section. Through the transfer section and the like, the primary wet film is guided to a first drying chamber where a wet gas containing water vapor is blown onto the primary wet film. Water molecules are absorbed in the primary wet film. Absorption of the water molecules in the primary wet film promotes diffusion of the constituent compounds contained in the primary wet film, which facilitates release of constituent compounds.
