  • Patent number: 8399103
    Abstract: A method of a pre-treatment process for coating notably improves both the surface roughness of a coating layer of a cemented carbide cutting tool and the bonding force of the coating layer to the substrate. According to the method, a sintered surface layer within a range of 0.5-5 ?m, which corresponds to the tungsten carbide particle size of a substrate, is properly removed from the substrate surface of a cemented carbide cutting tool. Thus, a porous sintered surface layer having a non-uniform structure is removed and a substrate surface having high structure density and evenness is provided compared to blasting pre-treatment. In order to obtain a sufficient bonding force between a coating layer and the substrate, the surface ratio of open pores, which exist around tungsten carbide particles appearing by removal of the porous sintered surface, is equal to or more than 5%.

  • Patent number: 6811820
    Abstract: A friction lining for wet running consists of a fabric which can be applied to a carrier (6) and is partly impregnated with resin. In order to provide favorable friction conditions it is proposed that the porosity of the fabric (1) impregnated with resin is higher in the zone of the friction face (4) by a lower resin content in a surface layer (h) than in the remaining layer.

  • Patent number: 6808751
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for improving the corrosion resistance of chrome plated materials that provides for heating the chrome plated materials above the melting point of a buffing compound, and then buffing the heated materials with the buffing compound applied. An induction heater is used, before or after the buffing compound is applied. Computer controls, responsive to operator input of the cross-sectional size, composition and/or speed of movement of the chrome plated materials, to in turn regulate the power to an induction coil heater.

  • Patent number: 6783804
    Abstract: A cast coated printing sheet providing high paper gloss and smoothness, desirable printing performance characteristics, and enhanced printed product attributes. The cast coated sheet comprises a substrate and a brushed coating layer comprising (a) a pigment, (b) a functionally effective amount of latex such that a dried unbrushed layer of the coating will not adhere sufficiently to the casting surface to allow the unbrushed layer to be cast, and (c) a functionally effective amount of brushing agent such that damage to the coating layer surface during brushing is minimized. The invention further provides methods for manufacturing such cast coated printing sheets.

  • Patent number: 6773753
    Abstract: The invention discloses a process for treating a ceramic protective layer (3) which is applied to the surface (2) of a gas turbine part (1). The roughness of the ceramic protective layer (3) is reduced at at least one first location (5), and the original roughness is retained at at least one second location (6). The roughness is advantageously retained at locations (6) on a turbine blade or vane (1) which are at risk of detachment, while the roughness of the remaining surface (2) is reduced in order to reduce the heat transfer to the surrounding hot-gas flow.

  • Patent number: 6749946
    Abstract: An economical process for creating decorative and/or functional finishes on chrome, involves formation of a polyurethane film on the chrome substrate, wherein a strong and durable adhesion between the polyurethane film and the metal substrate is achieved by employing a silane adhesion promoter. Specific embodiments involve the use of an aromatic amine functional silane-coupling agent and/or an epoxy functional silane-coupling agent to achieve excellent adhesion between the polyurethane film and a chrome surface.

  • Patent number: 6730360
    Abstract: A lubricant varnish component and a lubricant varnish, for example, for coating elastomer profiles, are provided, wherein lubricant varnish component includes a polyurethane, a siloxane as well as a polyamide powder, a polyethylene powder or a solution of a polyamide. The lubricant varnish may additionally contain a curing agent, in particular an isocyanate-based curing agent. In addition, a first method for coating elastomers is proposed, wherein the proposed lubricant varnish is first applied in the form of a coating to an elastomer profile, and this coating then being dried and/or thermally crosslinked. Also, the proposed lubricant varnish, having or not having polyamide or polyethylene, may first be applied in the form of a first coat to the elastomer profile, and an alcoholic or aqueous solution of a polyamide in the form of a second coat or a polyamide powder or a polyethylene powder may then being applied to the first coat.

  • Patent number: 6699415
    Abstract: A process for the production of a manufactured article for coatings, for components of sanitary ware, kitchen fittings, etc., in polymerized transparent resin in which marble and other stones are embedded. The surface of the product is worked by brushing with abrasives, so as to obtain depressions corresponding to the resin, and slight projections with substantially uniform distribution corresponding to the inserts; advantageously, the inserts are “decapitated” to give smoothed surfaces.

  • Patent number: RE42384
    Abstract: Water soluble materials, compositions and systems for use in treating concrete-containing materials and surfaces are disclosed. Treatment modalities that include addition of the disclosed materials, compositions and systems to pre- and post-construction concrete-containing materials and surfaces are provided. Reductions in the rate and/or impact of corrosion are achieved for concrete-containing structures and surfaces. In addition, despite the water soluble properties of the material, composition or system, the treatments are effective in delivering an advantageous level of moisture resistance to the treated concrete-containing structure and/or surface. The composition is synthesized from a feedstock that includes C9 to C16 branched hydrocarbons of varying structures.
