According to the apparatus, there is provided an injection molding machine in combination with a molding resin. The injection molding machine's resin delivery assembly is made from a powder metallurgy formed into solid non-coated parts having a Chromium-Vanadium (Cr/V) blend. As the molding resin interacts with the resin delivery assembly, the resin only contacts the solid non-coated parts whereby the resin experiences less degradation and provides improved quality for the defect-critical articles. The method includes the steps of plasticizing, injecting, and cooling. During the plasticizing and injecting steps, the molding resin only contacts solid non-coated parts made from a powder metallurgy material containing a Chromium-Vanadium (Cr/V) blend thereby producing reduced defect articles.

  • Patent number: 8361742
    Abstract: A method and system for rapidly detecting Candida on the skin of a host, such as an infant with diaper rash, is provided. The method includes contacting a dermal sample with a colorant that exhibits a certain spectral response (e.g., color change) in the presence of Candida. For example, the colorant may change from a first color to a second color, from colorless to a color, or from a color to colorless. The colorant is typically capable of differentiating between Candida (e.g., Candida albicans) and other microorganisms commonly associated with diaper rash, such as S. aureus and E. coli. Thus, when a dermal sample is placed into contact with the colorant, the color change may simply be observed to determine whether the infection is caused by Candida. If the color change occurs to a certain extent (e.g., from yellow to bright red), it may be determined that the test sample contains Candida. Likewise, if a color change occurs to a lesser extent (e.g.

    Abstract: Summary: Task: In a field wherein a frame is formed around a peripheral portion of a glass plate by injection molding and a decorative molding is simultaneously fixed to the frame upon the injection molding, there are provided a decorative molding and a framed window glass plate having the decorative molding mounted thereto, the decorative molding being suppressed from an appearance failure at the time of injection molding and suitable for a multi-coloring. Means for achieving Task: A body proper of the decorative molding is made of a metal, a cationically electrodeposited coating film is formed on a surface of the body proper, and a resinous coating film is formed on the cationically electrodeposited coating film. By containing a pigment or dye in the resinous coating film which is made of a melamine-based resin, acrylic resin, polyester-based resin, fluororesin or epoxy resin, the decorative molding has the same color as the frame and the body of the vehicle, which is a feature.

  • Publication number: 20110311798
    Abstract: A method of forming a reconstituted wood block can include providing a recovered wood having a high aspect ratio along wood grains of the recovered wood. The recovered wood can be radially crushed or obtained as strips of recovered veneer. The recovered wood can be pretreated to increase resin absorption to form a degreased wood. The degreased wood can then be dried sufficient to reduce a moisture content to produce a dried wood. The dried wood can be soaked in a resin solution to form a resin impregnated wood. The resin impregnated wood can be dried to reduce the moisture content without substantially curing the resin to form a dried resin impregnated wood. The dried resin impregnated wood can then be molded having wood fibers oriented in a non-random predetermined pattern substantially common direction and compacted to form an uncured molded wood. The pattern can be oriented along a substantially common direction or portions may be oriented transverse to others to obtain a knotted appearance.

  • Publication number: 20110278757
    Abstract: Method for manufacturing a unitary mat on site includes placing loose fill material into a defined area in which the mat is to be formed, mixing rubber particles with at least one binder to form a mixture, placing the mixture over the loose fill material, and allowing the mixture to dry whereby the dried mixture in combination with the loose fill material forms the unitary mat. In one embodiment, the loose fill material includes only rubber particles, without a binder. The mixture placed over these loose rubber particles seals and contains the loose rubber particles. The mixture may incorporate color, e.g., by adding a colorant to the mixture and/or using colored rubber particles. Alternatively or additionally, an additional, colored mixture may be prepared and placed over the dried mixture.
