  • Patent number: 4476155
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing an improved electrical high voltage coated insulator is described. The method involves applying and curing a one-part, room temperature curable silicone composition to the surface of an insulator, the insulator surface having a minimum designated arc resistance. The silicone composition is the product obtained by mixing in the substantial absence of moisture a specified polydimethylsiloxane fluid containing hydroxyl radicals, finely divided aluminum hydroxide filler, a silane of the formula R.sub.b Si(ON.dbd.X).sub.4-b and an optional condensation catalyst. The coating cures on exposure to atmospheric moisture to produce a surface adhered onto the insulator that resists the development of leakage currents and flashover failure upon exposure to electrical stress, moisture, contamination, and other outdoor weathering stresses.

  • Patent number: 4450374
    Abstract: Passivated and low scatter acoustic wave devices comprise surface acoustic wave (SAW) and shallow bulk acoustic wave (SBAW) devices having transducers composed of oxidizable metal and layers of metal oxide on conventional acoustic wave substrates. Passivated transducers are achieved by forming a layer of oxide on an existing transducer. The method may be used to passivate a device packaged in a non-oxidizable package with oxidizable wire leads, thus combining complete protection with efficient manufacturing operations. Low scatter SAW transducers are achieved by forming the transducer and the interstitial insulating layer from a single layer of oxidizable metal by means of masking and oxidation operations.

  • Patent number: 4382881
    Abstract: A method of preparing an antistatic coating exhibiting a desired value of surface resistivity which is substantially stable with respect to time takes as its starting point a commercial antistatic product having a synthetic resin base and substantially free from metallic particles but of which the surface resistivity, measured after mixing with its hardener and drying, is very much below the desired value. A compatible insulating resin is added to this product so as to raise the surface resistivity, still measured after mixing with the hardener and drying, to a value much higher than the desired value. The resulting product is then subjected to an accelerated ageing treatment causing a reduction in surface resistivity with terminal asymptotic development to the level of the desired value. Such a coating may be applied to radomes and other aircraft surface elements, and has the advantage that its conductivity does not increase appreciably with age.
