  • Patent number: 9905417
    Abstract: A composition containing a precursor of a ferroelectric thin film, a solvent, and a reaction control substance, can form a ferroelectric thin film by temporary firing and permanent firing of a coating film. The composition contains the reaction control substance in such an amount that a Young's modulus of a film formed in a step of temporary firing at a temperature of 200° C. to 300° C. becomes equal to or less than 42 GPa, and a Young's modulus of a film formed in a step of permanent firing at a temperature of 400° C. to 500° C. becomes equal to or greater than 55 GPa. Thus a thin film having high crystallinity can be formed which substantially does not crack at the time of permanent firing even if the thickness of the coating film formed per single coating operation is increased.

    Abstract: Described herein are coating compositions for protecting one-glass solution (OGS) glasses and other display glasses during processing. The coatings are non-reactive to typical indium-tin oxide touch components, metal electrodes, and black matrix inks, and can thus be used to over-coat these materials. In one aspect, the coating compositions described herein can be applied by a screen printing application process in a single layer or in multiple layers and are compatible with CNC edge grinding and acid etching. Further, the protective coatings are rigid, but not brittle, and are durable but still able to be processed rapidly. Additionally, the protective coatings are transparent, allowing alignment marks on the substrates to be visible. Finally, the protective coatings can easily be removed after substrate processing has been completed.

    Abstract: This disclosure features use of a paper or polymer film that includes a slip agent that can transfer to its surfaces. Once the paper or film is pressed against a glass sheet, this will leave a thin surface roughness of slip agent that can prevent or reduce glass surface scratches from other surfaces or particles during shipping or finishing (e.g., cutting to size, conveyance of glass), thereby improving the yield of glass shipments between glass forming plants and customers. The thin discontinuous layer of slip agent remaining on the glass surface can be washed off easily in subsequent washing processes.

    Abstract: Linerless labels are presented. A label includes a specific pattern or set of patterns of adhesive applied to one side of the label. The adhesive pattern(s) reduces contact between a cutter blade of a printer and the adhesive on the one side of the label. Moreover, the adhesive patterns reduce buildup of adhesive on the cutter blade and reduce buildup at specific locations on the cutter blade. That is, the adhesive patterns more evenly distribute adhesive buildup across the cutter blade. Consequently, the cutter blade can be used for a longer period of time before the cutter blade needs to be cleaned of the adhesive.

  • Patent number: 8562750
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for processing a bevel edge is provided. A substrate is placed in a bevel processing chamber and a passivation layer is formed on the substrate only around a bevel region of the substrate using a passivation plasma confined in a peripheral region of the bevel processing chamber. The substrate may undergo a subsequent semiconductor process, during which the bevel edge region of the substrate is protected by the passivation layer. Alternatively, the passivation layer may be patterned using a patterning plasma formed in an outer peripheral region of the processing chamber, the patterning plasma being confined by increasing plasma confinement. The passivation layer on outer edge portion of the bevel region is removed, while the passivation layer on an inner portion of the bevel region is maintained. The bevel edge of the substrate may be cleaned using the patterned passivation layer as a protective mask.

    Abstract: A process of protecting a vehicle wheel or hub is provided that includes the application to the vehicle wheel or hub of a composition. The composition includes a water soluble polymeric film former, a plasticizer and a carrier that solubilizes or suspends the film former and the plasticizer. After allowing the composition to dry to form a coating, the coating is exposed to debris contaminants. The coating and the debris contaminants are then removed. The coating is readily removed by water washing alone.

  • Publication number: 20130157005
    Abstract: An array of microbumps with a layer or coating of non-superhydrophobic material yields a superhydrophobic surface, and may also have a contact angle hysteresis of 15 degrees or less. A surface with such an array may therefore be rendered superhydrophobic even though the surface structure and materials are not, by themselves, superhydrophobic.

  • Patent number: 8449704
    Abstract: A temporary protective coating is provided over a coated glass substrate. The temporary protective coating includes a hot melt adhesive and is preferably applied in liquid form then solidified on the substrate. Moreover, the temporary protective coating can be easily removed by simply peeling it off. In certain example embodiments, the temporary protective coating is applied after heat treatment and is removed by peeling it off before the coated substrate is coupled to another substrate to form a window unit such as an IG window unit or a laminated vehicle windshield.
