  • Publication number: 20060266406
    Abstract: A design is presented for an integrated solar-voltaic roof tile that is durable, consistent in color with common roofing materials, and allows for installation of a roof system that produces cost-effective electricity from solar power. The design includes: 1. An elastomeric or polymeric substrate roof tile material. 2. An integrated solar-voltaic cell, which is molded into the roof tile, and appears as an integral part of the roof tile material. 3. A protective covering material composed of coated glass or a clear polymeric material that allows persons to walk on the roof without damaging the covering material, underlying solar-voltaic cell, or substrate material, and prevents water from entering the solar voltaic cell. 4.

  • Patent number: 6545060
    Abstract: The breakdown of crosslinked elastomers, including the devulcanization of crumb rubber, is achieved by exposing the elastomers to ultrasonic vibrations induced by magnetostriction transducers. The transducers are capable of a higher power output than ultrasound produced by piezoelectric transducers, and are able to withstand high temperatures and high-frequency vibrations to a significantly better degree.
