  • Patent number: 8911829
    Abstract: It has now been determined that an internal optical defect can be eliminated by controlling the relative speed mismatch between the resilient roll and the casting roll in a film extrusion coating process. In particular, slowing down the surface speed of the resilient roll relative to the casting roll when coating a biaxially orientated film was found to remove the optical defect. Conversely, speeding up the surface speed of the resilient roll relative to the casting roll when coating a uniaxially orientated film was found to remove the optical defect.

    Abstract: Flexographic printing precursors are prepared by providing an elastomeric mixture of one or more elastomeric resins and non-metallic fibers having an average length of at least 0.1 mm and an average diameter of at least 1 ?m, and adding a vulcanizing composition and optional other components to the elastomeric mixture. The elastomeric mixture is then mechanically treated to orient the non-metallic fibers predominantly in the same dimension in the elastomeric mixture. It is then vulcanized and formed into a laser-engraveable layer having two orthogonal dimensions. The non-metallic fibers are predominantly oriented in one of the two orthogonal dimensions.

The thickness of the asphalt-coated sheet is varied by passing the asphalt coated sheet through compression rollers configured to compress the asphalt-coated sheet and form a formed sheet such that the prime portion of the formed sheet has a first thickness and the headlap portion has a second thickness, different from the first thickness. The formed sheet is passed under a film applicator configured to supply a film to the headlap portion thereby forming a filmed sheet. Granules are applied to the filmed sheet to form a granule-covered sheet such that granules do not adhere to the headlap portion. The granule-covered sheet is cut into shingles.

  • Patent number: 7736696
    Abstract: A closed-loop system and process is used for applying fire retardant chemicals to substrates including fibers, yarns, fabrics or mixtures thereof. Substrates are preferably positioned in a vessel such as a dye machine which circulates the fire retardant chemicals. After absorption of the fire retardant composition, non-absorbed fire retardant chemicals are recovered and re-used on subsequent batches of fibers. The re-use of fire retardant chemicals can take place in the same vessel which is used to treat successive batches of substrates. Alternatively, recovery can be achieved by directing the non-absorbed fire retardant composition into a second dye machine containing additional fibers, or by extracting the fire retardant composition by centrifugation or other means, or by a combination of the two processes. The process is environmentally friendly, and allows for higher throughput on impregnating fibers with fire retardant chemicals.

The product can be produced at a thickness below about 0.060?, or even below a thickness of about 0.035?, and incorporated as a material to combine with or attach to other products for providing an increased strength to those other products, such as wood support beams (gluelam), wood laminates, truck floors and trusses. The product can also be used to strengthen composite thermoplastic lumber, other thermoplastic extrusions and moldings, and aluminum extruded products, as well as for being added to pultruded or molded thermoset plastic products to allow for specific areas of increased strength while maintaining a low reinforcement level in other areas and for providing a resin rich surface.

  • Patent number: 7625607
    Abstract: A method of producing the low glare, high print gloss paper of the invention comprises the steps of providing a paper substrate, coating the substrate with an aqueous coating composition having, as a dry parts by weight per 100 parts of pigment, 50-90 parts coarse delaminated clay pigment having a particle size of 8-12 microns and 10-20 parts calcium carbonate having a particle size of between 0.7 and 1.1 microns, drying the coating; and supercalendering the coated substrate with at least two passes per side with rolls having a surface roughness of 90-130 Ra. The step of supercalendering imparts a Parker Print-Surf roughness of 1.7-2.2 microns and a sheet gloss of about 25-30. Four color printing produces a print gloss of 65-70 and a delta gloss of at least 38.

  • Patent number: 7595092
    Abstract: A method for coating a fire-resistant substance onto a carrier veil and products containing fire-resistant substances are provided. The method includes delivering a pliable carrier veil in a traveling web, drawing the carrier veil web through a reservoir defined by a nip of two rollers and containing the fire-resistant substance, where the carrier veil is coated with the fire-resistant substance. The method also includes controlling the amount of fire-resistant substance on the carrier veil web by setting a nip dimension between the two rollers, passing the carrier veil through the nip of the two rollers and providing the fire-resistant substance as a slurry suitable to coat the veil exiting the nip with a layer effective to provide a selected fire resistance.

  • Patent number: 7575783
    Abstract: A high performance flame retardant textile fabric is provided which is suitable for use in producing close-fitting garments, such as undergarments, that come into direct contact with the skin of the wearer and provide a protective function, as well as in non-apparel applications. The fabric is formed of yarns of rayon continuous filaments, the yarns having outer filaments along the periphery of the yarn and inner filaments in the interior of the yarn. A cured phosphorus-based flame retardant compound is durably affixed to the filaments and imparts flame retardant properties to the fabric. The outer filaments of the yarns have a phosphorus content at least 25% greater than the inner filaments of the yarn.

  • Publication number: 20080193778
    Abstract: The invention relates to an isolation material, which is applied on the structures and surfaces where it is desired to provide isolation, in order to prevent the possible deformation by protecting said structures and surfaces against external factors, said isolation material being produced to extend the lifetime of the isolation by using the liquid, moisture and vapor impermeability feature of the plastic-derived material constituting the intermediate layer (2), and to obtain the possibility of rapid, easy and economic application and use for the bitumen (asphalt) (4) coated using the fibrous material (3). Said isolation material (1) is not easy to burn, is not affected by the temperature differences and is not influenced for a very long time by the factors such as sun, rain, snow, naturally occurring chemicals, plant roots, direct contact with the soil and time; hence it enables the isolation to last for long years.
