  • Patent number: 10286643
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a peeling bar, apparatus, and method for peeling a polarizing film from a panel. This invention can minimize friction between the peeling bar and the polarizing film since the peeled polarizing film is in contact with a main roller of the peeling bar. The radius of the main roller of the peeling bar and the inclined surface of the fixing unit are designed to minimize the Z-axis component of a shearing force applied to the polarizing film. Also, in order to equalize tension applied to the polarizing film in a peeling process, this invention makes both ends of the polarizing film closely adhere to the peeling bar. According to this invention, fracture of the polarizing film is prevented, and thereby the polarizing film can be stably peeled from the panel without fracture.

    Abstract: An object is to provide a novel separation method or a novel manufacturing method of a device. In the case where a bond of M-O—W (M is a given element) is divided by application of physical force, a liquid is absorbed into the gap, whereby the bond becomes bonds of M-OH HO—W with a longer bond distance and the detachment can be promoted accordingly. In the detachment, a roller such as a drum roller can be used. Part of the roller surface may have adhesiveness. For example, an adhesive tape or the like may be put on part of the roller surface. By rotating the roller, the layer to be separated is wound and detached from the substrate having an insulating surface.

The adhesive material is generally printed in substantially the same shape as the perimeter of the supplemental material to be bonded to the base textile. After the thermoplastic ink is printed onto the backing sheet, the thermoplastic ink is transferred to the base fabric using a bonding process. The backing sheet is then peeled away, and the supplemental material is then bonded to the exposed adhesive material on the base fabric using a subsequent bonding process.

    Abstract: A method for producing a microstructure on a carrier by: (a) manufacturing a donor foil by forming an embossed structure with elevations and depressions in a first foil material and applying a transfer layer to the embossed structure, (b) manufacturing an acceptor foil by applying an adhesive layer to a second foil material, (c) laminating the donor foil and the acceptor foil by means of the adhesive layer, the transfer layer on the elevations of the embossed structure bonding to the adhesive layer, and (d) transferring the bonded regions of the transfer layer to the acceptor foil by separating the donor foil and the acceptor foil from each other, thereby forming in the acceptor foil a first microstructure from the transferred regions of the transfer layer, and/or forming in the donor foil a second microstructure complementary to the first microstructure.

  • Publication number: 20130004753
    Abstract: A laminate donor element can be used to transfer a composite of a metal grid and an electronically conductive polymer to a receiver sheet for use in various devices. The laminate donor element has a donor substrate, a metal grid that is disposed over only portions of the donor substrate, leaving portions of the substrate uncovered by the metal grid, and an electronically conductive polymer that covers the portions of the donor substrate that are uncovered by the metal grid. The composite of metal grid and electronically conductive polymer exhibits a peel force of less than or equal to 40 g/cm for separation from the donor substrate at room temperature. The resulting article has a substrate on which a reverse composite of the metal grid and electronically conductive polymer is disposed, which article can be incorporated into various devices.

  • Publication number: 20120298289
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method for making a graphene/carbon nanotube composite structure. In the method, at least one graphene film is located on a substrate. At least one carbon nanotube layer is combined with the at least one graphene film located on the substrate to form a substrate/graphene/carbon nanotube composite structure. The at least one graphene film is in contact with the at least one carbon nanotube layer in the substrate/graphene/carbon nanotube composite structure. The substrate is removed from the substrate/graphene/carbon nanotube composite structure, thereby forming a graphene/carbon nanotube composite structure.

  • Publication number: 20120255673
    Abstract: A method is provided for simultaneously forming electrical circuitry and functional light structures on a curable lacquer layer deposited on a base substrate of an optoelectronic device. The method includes contacting a transfer substrate against the curable lacquer layer. The transfer substrate has a mating surface with the electrical circuitry on a first portion and negative impressions of the functional light structures on a second portion. The electrical circuitry is releasably adhered to the mating surface, and adhesion between the transfer substrate and the electrical circuitry is substantially lesser than adhesion between the electrical circuitry and the curable lacquer layer. So, contacting enables simultaneous embedding of the electrical circuitry and replication of the functional light structures onto the curable lacquer layer.
