  • Patent number: 8669299
    Abstract: An antioxidant combined with UHMWPE prior to subjecting the UHMWPE to crosslinking irradiation. In one exemplary embodiment, the antioxidant is tocopherol. After the antioxidant is combined with the UHMWPE, the resulting blend may be formed into slabs, bar stock, and/or incorporated into a substrate, such as a metal, for example. The resulting product may then be subjected to crosslinking irradiation. In one exemplary embodiment, the UHMWPE blend is preheated prior to subjecting the same to crosslinking irradiation. Once irradiated, the UHMWPE blended product may be machined, packaged, and sterilized in accordance with conventional techniques.

  • Publication number: 20140052067
    Abstract: Device for puncturing a membrane of a human or animal body so as to introduce a liquid formulation thereinto, provided with a patch (10) made of a polymeric material, includes a base surface (12) having a distal side and a proximal side, and a plurality of projections (11), each projection projecting from the distal side of the base surface to end in a tip (13) arranged for puncturing the membrane. Each projection (11) has a cavity (14) and a shell (111) enveloping the cavity at the distal side. The cavity is open towards the proximal side of the base surface. The shells (111) have substantially constant thicknesses. The projections (11) include fluid channels (150) emanating from the cavities (14), running through the shells to end at orifices (15) provided in the shells, offset from the tips (13), the fluid channels being oriented obliquely relative to the proximal-distal axis (16, 160). A method provides for manufacturing the patch.

  • Publication number: 20140036353
    Abstract: An electronic device may be provided with electronic device structures such as housing structures and structures associated with electrical components. The electronic device structures may be attached to each other using ultraviolet and visible light curable adhesive. A layer of adhesive may be interposed between electronic device structures. A light source may generate ultraviolet light. The structures may include an ultraviolet-light-transparent structure through which the ultraviolet light passes to illuminate and cure the adhesive. The ultraviolet-light-transparent structure may form one of multiple shots of injection molded plastic in a device structure, may be formed using a plastic that is opaque at visible wavelengths, or may have a coating such as a metal coating to help reflect ultraviolet radiation onto the adhesive. Perforations in the coating may be used to pass ultraviolet radiation to the adhesive.

  • Patent number: 8632719
    Abstract: A method for producing an injection-molded product includes steps of placing, in an injection mold, a heat-shrinkable resin sheet having region A and region B which have different surface temperatures when irradiated with infrared rays; integrating the resin sheet with an injection molding resin by injecting the injection molding resin into the mold; and, before the resin sheet is placed in the injection mold or before the integration step after the placing of the resin sheet in the injection mold, irradiating the resin sheet with infrared rays so that the surface temperatures of region A and region B are different from each other and the surface temperature of at least region A is equal to or higher than an orientation release stress inflection point temperature T of the resin sheet, thereby forming a difference in thickness between regions A and B.

  • Publication number: 20130285293
    Abstract: A resin transfer molding (RTM) molding device is designed to mold a fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) molded body by injecting a resin composition into a mold and by impregnating the molded body therewith. The resin composition is a chain curing polymer (CCP). A CCP accommodating layer is disposed adjacent to an outer side of the molded body. The layer contains the CCP. The layer is provided with a Vf limit value, the value defined by the curing characteristics of the CCP and the characteristics of dissipation of heat from the CCP to the exterior. An element for separating the molded body is disposed between the body and the layer.

  • Patent number: 8506856
    Abstract: The invention provides a method for making silicone hydrogel contact lenses. The method of the invention is characterized by using a solvent mixture including at least one organic solvent which dissolves the polymerizable material in a lens-forming composition and a small amount of water. By having a small amount of water in the lens-forming composition, the mechanical strength of lenses cast-molded from the lens-forming composition can be sufficiently high so that the lenses can survives during mold opening and demolding process, thereby increasing the production yield.
