  • Patent number: 9011983
    Abstract: A process for producing polymeric films by applying a liquid composition onto a surface of a substrate under vacuum conditions in a vacuum chamber. The composition has a first component which is polymerizable or crosslinkable in the presence of a sufficient amount of an acid; and a cationic photoinitiator which generates an acid upon exposure to ultraviolet radiation, electron beam radiation or both to cause polymerizing or crosslinking of the first component. A gas which emits ultraviolet radiation upon exposure to electron beam radiation is introduced into the vacuum chamber. The composition and the gas are exposed to electron beam radiation to cause the cationic photoinitiator to generate an amount of an acid to cause polymerizing or crosslinking of the first component. The composition is exposed to both electron beam radiation and gas-generated ultraviolet radiation and cured.

  • Patent number: 8852476
    Abstract: A process for forming thin flake particles includes coating the liquid release agent over a base substrate, forming a multilayer structure by depositing a thin film over the liquid release agent, collecting the multilayer structure, and separating the thin flake from the multilayer structure using a suitable solvent. The liquid release agent comprises a curable compound that can form a solidified layer less than 0.001 mm thick onto which the thin film can be deposited. Separation requires little solvent because of the thinness of the solidified layer.

  • Patent number: 8460762
    Abstract: A liquid composition and a process for coating the composition onto a surface of a substrate in a substantially oxygen-free atmosphere, under vacuum conditions. The composition comprises one or more components, all of which components do not go into a gas or vapor phase under the vacuum conditions. The composition has an ethylenically unsaturated component composed of an ethylenically unsaturated methacrylate monomer, or a combination of an ethylenically unsaturated methacrylate monomer and an ethylenically unsaturated methacrylate oligomer. The ethylenically unsaturated component is polymerizable or crosslinkable by the application of sufficient electron beam radiation. The composition is substantially absent of ethylenically unsaturated acrylate components, substantially absent of polymerization initiators, and substantially absent of solvents. The composition optionally further comprises one or more polymers without an acrylate functional group and without a methacrylate functional group.

  • Patent number: 7228584
    Abstract: The invention relates to a portal washing facility for motor vehicles, in particular passenger motor vehicles, that includes a portal device that can move relative to the motor vehicle in its longitudinal direction, has at least one horizontal washing brush that is height-adjustable on the portal device, and at least one side washing brush that can move transverse to the direction of motion of the portal device. In order to have an effective, brushless high-pressure washing, in addition to washing with conventional washing brushes, at least one lateral high-pressure washing device is provided on the portal device and is used for high-pressure cleaning of the side surfaces and of the front and rear surfaces of the motor vehicle and can be driven along at least one traverse of the portal device transverse to the direction of motion of the portal device.

  • Publication number: 20060242784
    Abstract: A drying gantry for vehicle wash plants is proposed having at least one height-adjustable cross-beam to which a blower arrangement is attached for drying the surfaces of a vehicle over which the cross-beam moves. The blower arrangement is provided with a nozzle mouth arrangement forming a lower contour of the cross-beam, with the height position of the cross-beam being controllable depending on a desired distance between the lower contour of the cross-beam and the vehicle over which the cross-beam moves. The drying gantry is characterised in that the lower contour of the cross-beam in a region approximately corresponding to the middle of the vehicle width and on both lateral ends of the vehicle recedes towards the top, thus forming clear spaces.

  • Patent number: 6463617
    Abstract: A vehicle-washing system for vehicles has high-pressure lateral spray devices with spray nozzles stationary in their height, which high-pressure lateral spray devices are arranged on both sides of a vehicle-washing position. An elevationally adjustable carrier is furthermore provided, on which carrier is arranged in particular a horizontal washing brush for cleaning the roof of a vehicle. With each lateral spray device is associated a further spray nozzle, which is connected to the first-mentioned spray nozzles through a flexible fluid pipeline. The further spray nozzles are provided on the carrier and are adjustable in their height following the upper contour of the vehicle to be washed. The vehicle-washing system of the invention achieves with few structural requirements a good cleaning result in the upper area of the sides of a vehicle, also for higher vehicles or for passenger vehicles with a sharply pulled-in area of the edge of the roof.

  • Patent number: 6441553
    Abstract: A porous metallic layer is incorporated in one of the electrodes of a plasma treatment system. A plasma gas is injected into the electrode at substantially atmospheric pressure and allowed to diffuse through the porous layer, thereby forming a uniform glow-discharge plasma. The film material to be treated is exposed to the plasma created between this electrode and a second electrode covered by a dielectric layer. Because of the micron size of the pores of the porous metal, each pore also produces a hollow cathode effect that facilitates the ionization of the plasma gas. As a result, a steady-state glow-discharge plasma is produced at atmospheric pressure and at power frequencies as low as 60 Hz. According to another aspect of the invention, vapor deposition is carried out in combination with plasma treatment by vaporizing a substance of interest, mixing it with the plasma gas, and diffusing the mixture through the porous electrode.

  • Patent number: 6389640
    Abstract: A drying device for drying of vehicles in vehicle washing systems, in particular portal vehicle washing systems, comprising a nozzle housing, which is elevationally movable in dependency of the contour of the vehicle, extends transversely with respect to the longitudinal direction of the vehicle, and is pivotal about a horizontal axis of rotation extending transversely with respect to the longitudinal direction of the vehicle by means of a servomotor, is being described. The nozzle housing has at least one slot-shaped outlet nozzle extending transversely with respect to the longitudinal direction of the vehicle, and is connected to a blower. A control acts onto the servomotor in order to adapt the outlet direction of the outlet nozzle to the contour of the vehicle. The nozzle housing can be rotated through at least 360°.
