  • Patent number: 10926459
    Abstract: A process for manufacturing an article comprises the steps of: applying a layer that consists of particles to a target area; allowing, in a chamber, energy to act on a selected portion of the layer, according to a cross-section of the article, so that the particles in the selected portion are bonded, and repeating the steps of applying and allowing energy to act for a plurality of layers so that the bonded portions of the adjacent layers are bonded to form the article, at least part of the particles comprising a fusible polymer. The fusible polymer has a fusion range (DSC, differential scanning calorimetry; 2nd heating at a heating rate of 5 K/min.) of ?20° C. to ?100° C. The fusible polymer further has a complex viscosity \?*\ (determined by viscosity measurement in the melt using a plate-plate oscillating viscometer according to ISO 6721-10 at 100° C. and a shear rate of 1/s) of ?10 Pas to ?1000000 Pas. Finally, the temperature inside the chamber is ?50° C.

  • Patent number: 9475971
    Abstract: The present invention relates to novel waterborne adhesives which are polymerizable by UV light and are capable of being activated by heat, and which particularly display good adhesion to difficult substrates, such as ethylene vinyl acetate copolymers (EVA) with a low vinyl acetate content, or rubber. The invention further provides a novel method in which, after the application of the waterborne adhesive to an article and drying, irradiation with UV light and at the same time or thereafter activation by heat are performed. The adhesive film which is irradiated and activated in this way is then bonded to a further article. The invention also provides the use of the adhesives to make items such as shoes.
