  • Patent number: 11117161
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to forming a thin film of nanoscale thickness by depositing a mixture of a precursor and a supercritical fluid onto a surface of a substrate and removing the supercritical fluid from the surface of the substrate. The mixture is sprayed onto the surface by a spraying module. A layer of the precursor is formed on at least a portion of the surface. Molecules of the supercritical fluid is removed from the surface. The surface is exposed to plasma radical to transform the layer of the precursor into a solid thin film. In some embodiments, molecules of the precursor chemically bond with molecules of the supercritical fluid in the mixture. The molecules of the supercritical fluid can be decoupled from the molecules of the precursor before the layer of the precursor is formed.

    Abstract: The present invention relates to an aqueous alkaline composition (A) for alkaline passivation of metallic components comprising at least in part surfaces of zinc or zinc alloys, containing iron(III) ions, phosphate ions, and one or more complexing agents, where a free alkalinity ranges from 1 to 6 points, and the pH is at least 11. The aqueous compositions (A) can additionally contain nonionic surfactants, so that such compositions are suitable for use in a method in which both cleaning and alkaline passivation of the metallic component occur in one step. The present invention further relates to a method for alkaline passivation of metallic components by contacting them with composition (A), and further a method for surface treatment in automobile body production, in which the alkaline passivation step using composition (A) is followed by an acid passivation step using a composition (B).

  • Patent number: 8491716
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a method of manufacturing inorganic hollow yarns, such as cermets, oxide-non oxide composites, poorly sinterable non-oxides, and the like, at low costs. The method includes preparing a composition comprising a self-propagating high temperature reactant, a polymer and a dispersant, wet-spinning the composition through a spinneret to form wet-spun yarns, washing and drying the wet-spun yarns to form polymer-self propagating high temperature reactant hollow yarns, and heat-treating the polymer-self propagating high temperature reactant hollow yarns to remove a polymeric component from the polymer-self propagating high temperature reactant hollow yarns while inducing self-propagating high temperature reaction of the self-propagating high temperature reactant to form inorganic hollow yarns. The composition comprises 45˜60 wt % of the self-propagating high temperature reactant, 6˜17 wt % of the polymer, 0.1˜4 wt % of the dispersant, and the balance of an organic solvent.
