  • Publication number: 20150014151
    Abstract: A method of fabricating a sputtering target includes preparing a first powder material including at least one of a tin oxide and a mesh-forming oxide; mixing the first powder material and a second powder material comprising carbon or a tin oxide to prepare a mixture; simultaneously performing a primary compression and primary sintering on the mixture in a reduction atmosphere; and simultaneously performing a secondary compression and secondary sintering on the mixture in the reduction atmosphere to prepare the sputtering target.

  • Publication number: 20150004414
    Abstract: Provided is a collagen structure characterized by: comprising collagen fibers of 1 to 5 ?m in average diameter; and has a water content of 0 to 15 (w/w)% and a collagen density of 50 to 800 mg/cm3. After generating collagen fibers by neutralizing an acidic collagen solution, the resulting solution is subjected to filtration or the like to form crude collagen fibers having a collagen concentration of 12 to 50 (w/v)%. The thus obtained crude collagen fibers are molded into a prescribed shape and then dried, thereby the collagen structure can be produced. Since the collagen structure is produced using, as raw material, collagen fibers that are formed by association of collagen molecules, the collagen structure has excellent cell infiltration property. Further, since the collagen density of the collagen structure is equivalent to that of in vivo collagen tissue, the collagen structure exhibits excellent tissue regeneration capacity when filled into a defective part in vivo.

  • Publication number: 20140378017
    Abstract: A method for making nonwoven fabrics of fibers comprising one or more primary polypropylenes having a molecular weight distribution of less than 3.5 and a melt flow rate within the range from 5 to 500 dg/min, the fibers having an average diameter of less than 20 ?m, or a denier (g/9000 m) of less than 2.0, thus forming propylene-based fabrics. The propylene-based fabrics may have a MD Tensile Strength (WSP 110.4 (05)) of greater than 20 N/5 cm when calendered at a temperature within the range from 110 to 150° C. Also, the fabrics may have a CD Tensile Strength (WSP 110.4 (05)) of greater than 10 N/5 cm when calendered at a temperature within the range from 110 to 150° C. The fabrics are preferably meltspun, and in particular may be spunbond fabrics.

  • Patent number: 8840829
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a polymer powder which comprises polyamide, and to the use of this powder for shaping processes, and also to moldings produced from this polymer powder. The shaping processes are layer-by-layer processes which use powders, where regions of the respective layer are selectively melted via introduction of electromagnetic energy. The selectivity may be achieved, with no intention of restricting the invention thereto, be achieved via masks, application of inhibitors, of absorbers, or of susceptors, or via focusing of the energy introduced. After cooling, the regions then solidified can be removed in the form of moldings from the powder bed.
