  • Patent number: 9277790
    Abstract: The fastener stringer is arranged with at least one printable resin layer to which ink can be fixed on the entire surface of fastener elements. Printing by an inkjet method is carried out at least on the exposed surfaces exposed on the first tape surface side in the tape front- and back direction of the fastener elements, the inner surfaces of the first tape surface side facing the tape inward side, along with the first tape surface of the fastener tape. A desired pattern can thereby be stably formed not only on the fastener tape and the exposed surfaces of the fastener elements, but can also be formed on the inner surfaces of the fastener elements. Therefore, a pattern can be formed in a continuous manner on the fastener tape and the fastener elements, and decorativeness and design unattainable in the past can be obtained.

  • Patent number: 9062697
    Abstract: A fastening assembly for fastening an object to a surface or a structure, and/or between structures or objects, includes a plate having a first and second hole. A first fastener extends through the first hole and is adapted for attaching the plate to the surface. A second fastener has a head configured to be received in the second hole to hold the second fastener to the plate and is adapted for connection to the object. Preferably at least one set screw extends from an edge of the plate to lock the plate to the second fastener. The plate is pivotal about both fasteners so that the plate can swivel providing flexibility in installation and use.

  • Patent number: 8962096
    Abstract: A method for coating a substrate includes impacting a substrate with a plurality of particles such that the particles adhere to the substrate, bonding the particles to the substrate to form an overlayer, and crosslinking the particles in the overlayer to coat the substrate with a crosslinked polymer coating. The particles comprise a polyphenyl polymer. An article includes a substrate and a crosslinked polymer coating bonded to the substrate. The crosslinked polymer coating is a product of crosslinking polyphenylene sulfide, polyphenylsulfone, self-reinforced polyphenylene, or a combination thereof on a surface of the substrate.
