  • Patent number: 9442695
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of generating an array of random bits. The method generates unique arrays of random bits using carbon nanotube field effect transistor fabrication technology and can be used for security applications. The method includes: modifying a substrate to form a modified surface having a pattern selected from a group including: trenches, rigs, and a combination thereof; depositing a compound on the trenches and/or the rigs; and applying a dispersion of carbon nanomaterials onto the modified surface to form an array of random bits. The first system includes setting an array of random bits based on carbon nanomaterials as a digital signature by measuring electric charge flowing through each individual bit. The second system includes protecting an array of random bits against iterative unauthorized accessing mechanisms.

  • Publication number: 20150132543
    Abstract: This invention relates to the field of authentication of coating compositions such as varnishes, inks and paints, and it is particularly useful in the field of authentication of such coating compositions when applied to substrates like banknotes or other valuable documents. It is particularly directed to a marked coating composition. e.g. an ink, that is marked with a marker (taggant) such as to allow for its authentication, and a method for authenticating such a marked coating composition. The marking is achieved by covalently binding a taggant to a coating composition component. e.g. such used for security documents. The taggant, which is not extractable through usual chemical treatments like washing methods or the use of solvents, can be detected and identified upon thermally induced chemical fragmentation with a PY-GC-MS apparatus. The marked ink or the marked substrate is thus authenticated as belonging to a particularly marked ink, varnish or batch.

    Abstract: A solution and method of treating wood to resist discoloration of the wood and the treated wood employ a polydentate monoamino carboxylic acid and/or a diakyl diphosphonic acid. The invention resists discoloration which is believed to be caused by the mobility of organic based chromophoric molecules within the wood which migrate toward the surface of the wood. Among uses of the invention, it is particularly helpful in effecting resistance to discoloration of wood being treated with wood preservatives, stains and coatings. In another embodiment, ammonium pentaborate may be employed to resist discoloration.

  • Publication number: 20130288067
    Abstract: A solution and method of treating wood to resist discoloration of the wood and the treated wood employ a polydentate monoamino carboxylic acid and/or a diakyl diphosphonic acid. The invention resists discoloration which is believed to be caused by the mobility of organic based chromophoric molecules within the wood which migrate toward the surface of the wood. Among uses of the invention, it is particularly helpful in effecting resistance to discoloration of wood being treated with wood preservatives, stains and coatings. In another embodiment, ammonium pentaborate may be employed to resist discoloration.

  • Publication number: 20130260150
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to ground expanded graphite agglomerate compositions, methods for making such agglomerates, their use as conductive additive, and conductive composites including such ground expanded graphite agglomerates. The disclosure also pertains to methods for making such composites and the use of such composites in preparing thermally conductive materials. The agglomerates may be characterized by a certain softness allowing the agglomerates to dissolve, e.g., through shear forces applied during compounding, thereby leading to an improved feedability and a highly homogenous distribution of the expanded graphite material in the composite matrix.

  • 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.
