    Abstract: A protective film configured to protect a substrate such as a glass panel for a display is provided. The protective film may include a discontinuous outer layer including a multitude of panels and gaps positioned therebetween. Further, the protective film may include a flexible layer positioned between the discontinuous outer layer and the substrate. When panels of the discontinuous outer layer are impacted by a foreign object, the force may be transferred to the flexible layer, rather than propagating through the outer layer. In this regard, the gaps between the panels of the discontinuous outer layer may prevent the formation of cracks that may otherwise occur. Related assemblies and methods are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20150040388
    Abstract: A dielectric layer is directly applied onto the surface of a heat sink part. For example, the composition for making the dielectric layer may be made into a paste or ink and then printed as a paste or ink, or applied with some other equivalent method, such as a lamination technique. The electrical circuit traces are then printed in a similar fashion onto the dielectric layer in the required pattern for whatever circuitry is to be applied. That circuitry (e.g., circuit elements) is then attached to the electrical traces as needed for the particular application.

  • Patent number: 8945332
    Abstract: A marine grade, exterior composite finish flooring comprised of a plurality of synthetic wood strips, evenly spaced and joined with a silicone adhesive. The fabrication process involves coating a board with a masking agent and then sawing the board into strips so that the masking agent is only on the tops of the strips and not on the edges. Then adhering the strips to a substrate to achieve proper spacing and orientation. A silicone adhesive caulk is then pressed into the joints and allowed to partially cure. The caulk stuck on the surface of the boards is easily removed as a result of the masking agent. Completed panels are then adhered to a subfloor, for example on the deck of a boat for a durable and aesthetically pleasing deck surface.
