    Abstract: A fiber-web machine dryer section has a drying group with single-wire draw so the drying wire (F) presses the web (W) against heated cylinder surfaces with the web (W) at the side of the outside curve of reversing cylinders (11) situated between drying cylinders (10, 12). A pocket space (T) is formed between two adjacent drying cylinders (10) and a reversing cylinder (11) situated between them, and the drying wire (F). A negative pressure component (20) placed in the pocket space (T) creates a pressure difference over the drying wire (F) and the web (W) for attaching the web (W) to the drying wire (F) so the cross-direction shrinkage of the web (W) is controllable. The wire tension (F) is maintained at a level help control cross-direction shrinkage of the web. The pocket space (T) is sealed by sealing members (25, 26) to maintain negative pressure in the pocket space.

  • Publication number: 20100157508
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing complex oxide nano particles includes preparing a mixed solution including at least one metal salt selected from the group consisting of aluminum salt, manganese salt and barium salt, impregnating an organic polymer having nano-sized pores with the mixed solution, and calcining the organic polymer impregnated with the mixed solution. Accordingly, complex oxides with particle sizes on the nanoscale can be prepared, and the kind and composition ratio of metal elements contained in the complex oxides can be facilitated. Also, a multilayer ceramic capacitor including the complex metal oxides manufactured by this method can ensure a super slim profile and high capacity.

  • Patent number: 7727587
    Abstract: A composite product is formed from a honeycomb panel having an array of hexagonal tubular cells which clamped between two press plates where a layer of a foaming agent is applied to only the bottom press plate such that the foaming agent expands into the cells. An array of grooves is provided in the top press plate and connected at one or both edges of the plate to a source of vacuum so as to draw air through the grooves and cells. A sheet of a polyethylene material having the characteristics that it is permeable to air, substantially impermeable to liquid and resistant to bonding to the foam is applied onto the press plate to prevent the foam entering the grooves and bonding to the press plate while allowing the air to be drawn from the cells.

  • Publication number: 20100119715
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for the production of a tire sealant (C) with a polymeric base. A highly viscous first sealant component (A) (including a natural rubber component that is undiluted or diluted with at least one additional natural rubber component and mixture ingredients that are free of a solvent and an activator) is mixed with at least one second sealant component (B) (comprising a separately produced medium with low viscosity containing at least one activator), to combine to the tire sealant (C), wherein a cross linking occurs associated with the subsequent application of the tire sealant (C) to the inside of the tire. Appropriate method steps are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 7682662
    Abstract: The object of the present invention is to provide a golf ball having a paint film which is obtained from an environment-friendly aqueous paint and is excellent in the adhesion and the wear-resistance. The gist of the present invention lies in improving the adhesion between the paint film obtained from the aqueous polyurethane paint and the surface of the golf ball body by first applying the aqueous liquid of the aqueous polycarbodiimide on the surface of the golf ball body, subsequently forming the primer layer comprising the aqueous polycarbodiimide, and then applying the aqueous polyurethane paint to form the paint film, while reducing the amount of solvent used in the aqueous paint for applying on the golf ball by using the polycarbodiimide liquid and the aqueous polyurethane paint.

    Abstract: A soft seamless acrylonitrile bladder having excellent air permeability combined with good bounce characteristics for inflatable balls obtained by latex dipping process. The said process involves dipping hot moulds in a coagulant bath of calcium nitrate and water and later dipping the dried, coagulant coated formers in a compounded latex bath of carboxylated acrylonitrile butadiene latex, the dip being single or multiple depending upon the desired wall thickness. The said latex dipping process allows low manufacturing cost, high productivity and low rejection rate bladders having uniform weight varying from 500 mg/inch2 to 1.5 g/inch2, modulus varying from 17 to 20 Kg/Cm2, tensile strength of 150-180 Kg/Cm2 and elongation at break 650-750%.
