  • Publication number: 20150048050
    Abstract: An inkjet-based process for programmable deposition of thin films of a user-defined profile. Drops of a pre-cursor liquid organic material are dispensed at various locations on a substrate by a multi-jet. A superstrate that has been bowed due to a backside pressure is brought down such that a first contact of the drops is made by a front side of the superstrate thereby initiating a liquid front that spreads outward merging with the drops to form a contiguous film captured between the substrate and the superstrate. A non-equilibrium transient state of the superstrate, the contiguous film and the substrate then occurs after a duration of time. The contiguous film is then cured to crosslink it into a polymer. The superstrate is then separated from the polymer thereby leaving a polymer film on the substrate. In such a manner, non-uniform films can be formed without significant material wastage in an inexpensive manner.

The fluid application apparatus may include a slot die applicator and a substrate carrier. The substrate carrier may include one or more pattern elements and may be adapted to advance the substrate past the slot die applicator as the slot die applicator discharges adhesive onto the substrate. In operation, the substrate is disposed on the substrate carrier; the substrate carrier advances the substrate past the slot opening of the slot die applicator. In turn, the substrate is intermittently compressed between the slot die applicator and the pattern surface of the pattern element. As the substrate is intermittently compressed, adhesive discharged from the slot die applicator is applied onto the substrate in an area having a shape substantially the same as a shape defined by the pattern surface.

  • Publication number: 20130011564
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a personal cleansing device that has a pourable sodium soap impregnated substantially throughout the interior thereof and produces lather in hard water as well as soft water. The method comprises the steps of: providing a pourable sodium soap having a melting point of 120° F. to 160° F. that is in essentially solid form at a first temperature, and in essentially pourable molten form at a second temperature; heating the pourable sodium soap to the second temperature such that the pourable sodium soap is in pourable molten form; applying the molten pourable sodium soap to one or more portions of a substrate comprised of web of fibers; and allowing the pourable sodium soap to cool down to the first temperature to resolidify within interstitial spaces between the fibers of the substrate. The pourable sodium soap comprises at least one sodium soap and 5% to 35% glycerine.

  • Publication number: 20130011617
    Abstract: A versatile silicone resin reflective substrate which exhibits high reflectance of high luminance light from an LED light source over a wide wavelength from short wavelengths of approximately 340-500 nm, which include wavelengths from 380-400 nm near lower limit of the visible region, to longer wavelength in the infra-red region. The silicone resin reflective substrate has a reflective layer which contains a white inorganic filler powder dispersed in a three-dimensional cross linked silicone resin, the inorganic filler powder having a high reflective index than the silicone resin. The reflective layer is formed on a support body as a film, a solid, or a sheet. The silicone resin reflective substrate can be easily formed as a wiring substrate, a packaging case or the like, and can be manufactured at low cost and a high rate of production.

  • Patent number: 8323733
    Abstract: A surface of a support comprising through micropassages is brought into contact with an aqueous solution comprising a plurality of particles in suspension and a pad. A pressure perpendicular to the plane of the support, between the pad and the surface of the support, and a relative movement of the pad and of the surface in a direction parallel to the plane of the support are applied. At least one particle is thus introduced in each microgap to form a porous material therein.

  • Patent number: 8323744
    Abstract: A variety of methods, devices, systems and arrangements are implemented involving nanowire meshes. One such method is implemented to include synthesizing metal nanowires in a solution containing a structure-directing agent. The metal nanowires are deposited on a substrate to form a sheet of nanowires. The deposited metal nanowires are heated to a temperature less than about 200 degrees Celsius and for a period of time of about 10 minutes to 60 minutes, thereby removing the structure-directing agent and modifying the electrical conductivity and optical transmittance of the sheet of nanowires.

  • Patent number: 8192796
    Abstract: In the present invention, a holding table incorporating a heater is provided, for example, in a treatment container of a planarization unit. A pressing plate having a lower surface formed flat is disposed above the holding table. The pressing plate is movable in the vertical direction and can lower to the holding table to press a resist film on the substrate from above. The pressing plate intermittently presses the upper surface of the resist film to planarize the upper surface while the heater is heating the substrate on the holding table at a predetermined temperature to dry the resist film. According to the present invention, a coating film applied on the substrate can be sufficiently planarized and dried.

  • Patent number: RE43855
    Abstract: This invention relates to the printing of a substrate having a pre-printed “print pattern” with a “design layer” of ink where there is differential adhesion within and without the print pattern. The print pattern is receptive to an ink, and the design layer ink forms a durable image material with good bond to the print pattern, but the ink does not form a durable image material on the portions of the substrate outside the print pattern. The design layer ink is a UV-curable ink, and the print pattern may have a higher surface energy than the portions of the substrate outside the print pattern.

  • Patent number: RE44108
    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.
