  • Patent number: 5643637
    Abstract: A method is described for grading the electrical field at the surface of an electrode by depositing a semiconductive coating thereon. An electrode substrate is powered at a preselected temperature and power. A mixture of gases is then passed through an electrical discharge to ionize at least a portion thereof to form the semiconductive coating on the surface of the electrode. Also described is the plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition of a diamondlike carbon (DLC) film onto a substrate. A substrate is maintained at a preselected DLC forming temperature and is negatively biased at a first preselected voltage. A first gaseous mixture of hydrocarbons and argon is then passed through an electrical discharge to at least partially ionize the hydrocarbons to form DLC film on the substrate. The substrate is then negatively biased at a second preselected voltage lower than the first preselected voltage.

  • Patent number: 5498443
    Abstract: A non-woven fabric consisting of random entangled staple fibers which serves as a supporting structure is first subjected to pressure spraying on each side with a paint-like liquid comprised of a water base, or of a petroleum solvent thinner containing micron sized particles, such as copper treated with a suitable compatible binder, such as polyester epoxy, or acrylic resins. After spraying and drying, all solvents are removed by air circulating in an oven. The thus-sprayed fabric is then passed through apparatus which simultaneously heats and compresses the fabric to greatly reduce its thickness to form a sheet in which the entrained metal particles are brought into intimate contact with each other, thereby to impart conductivity to the fabric sheet.
