  • Patent number: 10460873
    Abstract: Dielectric ceramic particulates are introduced into thin a sheet of pre-cured elastomer to form a sheet. Successive layers of the sheets may then be laminated together to form a finished article. An electric field may be applied to the article during a curing process while the article is at a temperature near a Curie temperature of the dielectric ceramic particulates to increase a dielectric constant of the article. As each sheet may be different from each other in the finished article, the resulting finished article may have anisotropic dielectric and mechanical properties. Similarly, tiled dielectric ceramic structures may be introduced into the elastomers layers to generate materials with varying dielectric constants.

  • Patent number: 10283232
    Abstract: An enhanced elastomer molding process applies an electric field to an elastomer doped to include dielectric ceramic particulates inserted in a cavity of a mold while maintaining a temperature at or near a melting point of the elastomer and a Curie temperature of the ceramic particulates. Because a material's dielectric constant is related to the material's net remnant ferroelectric polarization, which may be increased by poling near the material's Curie temperature, applying the electric field to the elastomer doped with the dielectric ceramic particulates increases the dielectric constant of the dielectric ceramic particulates. This maintains the high elasticity of the elastomer while increasing the elastomer's dielectric constant of the material by increasing the value of the dielectric constant of the dielectric ceramic particulates included in the elastomer.

  • Patent number: 10076646
    Abstract: An applicator includes a roller, a treatment composition component, a cutaneous measurement component, and a controller. The roller contacts a portion of skin at a contact location and subsequently a target location. The treatment composition component selectively deposits a composition on a roller surface at a deposition location that is on the roller surface a circumferential distance away from the contact location. The cutaneous measurement component generates one or more parameters associated with the target location on the portion of skin. The target location is a target distance from the contact location that is equal to or greater than the circumferential distance. The controller controls the treatment composition component to selectively deposit the treatment composition on the roller surface in response to the one or more parameters associated with the target location on the portion of skin generated by the cutaneous measurement component.

  • Patent number: 10071233
    Abstract: An applicator for treating skin conditions includes at least one treatment composition component and a discontinuity identification component. The at least one treatment composition component is configured to selectively deposit a treatment composition at a deposit location on the portion of skin. The discontinuity identification component is operably coupled to an electromagnetic energy detector. The discontinuity identification component includes circuitry configured to monitor a level of the one or more parameters as the applicator traverses the portion of skin and to control the at least one treatment composition component to selectively deposit the treatment composition to the deposit location on the portion of skin based on one or more inputs indicative of a decrease in reflection of an electromagnetic energy interrogation stimulus from the portion of skin at the deposit location.

  • Patent number: 10058490
    Abstract: A composition that includes an activatable aggregate is described herein. The aggregate has a core and a shell. In some embodiments, when the aggregate is exposed to acoustic energy, the core of the aggregate includes a hydrogel that is capable of absorbing a relatively large amount of water. The core of the aggregate is covalently bound to a shell of linear aliphatic moieties. The aggregate is synthesized to minimize the amount of water in the core, prior to exposure to acoustic energy. Methods of hydrating using the compositions are also provided.
