  • Patent number: 10156240
    Abstract: HVLP (High Velocity Low Pressure) motor-driven fans and other types of fans, blowers and vacuums take advantage of different thermal and mechanical properties of dissimilar materials used in the motor-driven fans. The dissimilar materials include aluminum for a stacked arrangement of fan wheels and spacers, steel for a shaft that supports the fan wheels and spacers, and a polymeric adhesive. In some examples, the polymeric adhesive is trapped between the aluminum and steels parts. Compared to steel and aluminum, the adhesive has a relatively high coefficient of thermal expansion but relatively low strength such that thermal expansion of the adhesive exerts additional clamping pressure during startup and during high temperature operation. The additional clamping pressure reduces vibration and eliminates other causes of fan or motor failure.

    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to methods and apparatuses for assembling absorbent articles, and more particularly, diaper pants, each including a chassis connected with front and back elastic belts. As discussed in more detail below, opposing end regions of the chassis are connected with regions of the elastic belts where the elasticity of the elastic belts has been removed or deactivated. As discussed in more detail below, an elastic laminate may be formed by continuously bonding elastic strands between a first continuous substrate layer and a second continuous substrate layer. The elastic strands are then intermittently severed in light-bond regions of the elastic laminate. Adhesive on the laminate causes the severed elastic ends to retract or snap back from the light-bond regions at a relatively slower and/or controlled rate.

  • Patent number: 7947148
    Abstract: Methods for bonding include deposition an adhesion layer on at least one substrate using chemical vapor deposition. The two adhesion layers each have a reactive group that is complementary to the other, thus enabling strong adhesion between the bonded substrates. Devices include two substrates that can be adhered together by chemically depositing an adhesion layer on at least one substrate using chemical vapor deposition. The substrates each have a reactive group that is complementary to the other, thus enabling strong adhesion between the bonded substrates.

  • Publication number: 20110090712
    Abstract: A display housing for a portable computing device that utilizes a plastic cover bonded to an internal metal frame is described. To account for thermal cycling issues and in particular to prevent bond slippage, multiple types of adhesives are employed to join the metal frame and the plastic cover. In particular, a very high bond (VHB) adhesive material is used in certain areas to bond the metal inner frame to the plastic cover and a liquid adhesive is used in other areas. The plastic cover can be translucent to light. A method of coating the plastic cover to block light, such as from a backlight used for the display, is described.

  • Patent number: 7828919
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a multilayer ceramic electronic component can prevent the occurrence of bubble trapping. In the method, when an external layer ceramic green sheet is pressure-bonded, for example, to a sheet made of a good quality paper having a rough surface, which is placed on a supporting member, followed by peeling off its carrier film, a first-layer ceramic green sheet is formed. The first-layer external layer ceramic green sheet uses a sterically hindered dispersing agent, such as an aryl ether polymer, as a dispersing agent. Since it is light in weight, the binder segregates at the upper side, and hence a C concentration changes in the thickness direction. More particularly, compared to a C concentration at a surface at a carrier film side supported by the carrier film, a C concentration at an open surface opposite to the surface at the carrier film side is about 1.5 to about 4.0 times.
