  • Patent number: 10786980
    Abstract: A laminate has at least one polylactic acid resin-containing layer (C) with a thickness of 10-500 nm on at least one surface of a fibrous structure (B) containing a water-soluble resin (A). A production method for the laminate is characterized in that water or an aqueous solution is applied to the joining surface of the fibrous structure (B) and the polylactic acid resin-containing layer (C). The laminate exhibits excellent followability, adherence and coatability relative to flexible, curved adherends, exhibits excellent compatibility to organs such as skin and internal organs, and, because the fibrous structure (B) containing a water-soluble resin (A) can easily be removed from the polylactic acid resin-containing layer (C) by the aqueous solution, is adapted for use in materials for external use on the skin, such as wound-dressing materials, adhesion-preventing materials, and skin care products.

  • Publication number: 20200243711
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a light-emitting device includes preparing an intermediate product; the product includes a light-emitting element provided with paired electrodes at a first surface and a first covering member covering the light-emitting element such that portions of surfaces of the paired electrodes are exposed. A metal paste layer is formed, continuously covering the exposed portion of the paired electrodes and the first covering member. Paired wirings are formed for preventing the paired electrodes from being short-circuited. The metal paste layer on the paired electrodes and the metal paste layer on the first covering member are irradiated with laser light to remove the metal paste layer between the paired electrodes and a portion of the metal paste layer on the first covering member.
