  • Publication number: 20140305293
    Abstract: A composite armor plate includes a fracture layer placed adjacent to a ceramic layer. The ceramic layer provides a ballistic resistant layer that receives a ballistic impact and propagates a compression wave. The fracture layer is placed behind the ceramic layer and absorbs a portion of the compression wave propagating out in front of the ballistic impact. The absorbed compression wave causes the fracture layer to at least partially disintegrate into fine particles, which dissipates energy in the process. To cause a higher degree of fracturing (and thus larger dissipation of compression wave energy) the fracture layer includes a plurality of resonators embedded in a fracture material.

  • Publication number: 20140205503
    Abstract: An improved apparatus and method for dispersion of a labeling conjugate in a diagnostic assay, the result being a one-step assay. By eliminating a conjugate pad as in conventional lateral diagnostic devices, and forming a frazil ice pellicle (FIP), rehydration and flow are improved resulting in better reproducibility, improved sensitivity, and reduced costs of individual assay devices. The formation of a frazil ice film formed on a super cooled surface of a sample receiving means simplifies assay assembly. Lyophilization of the FIP improves the release of a sample/analyte/label matrix into into a macro channel as in a direct flow assay, while at the same time allowing reagents to mix and flow, thereby optimizing the assay performance. The reagents of the conjugate and the formation of the FIP stabilize the conjugate proteins and provide extended shelf life to the diagnostic assay device.

    Abstract: The present disclosure generally describes techniques suitable for use in the construction or recycling of composite materials, such as thermoplastics. A coated thermoplastic article may comprise a thermoplastic portion coupled to a supramolecular polymer interface layer, with a coating layer applied to a surface of the supramolecular polymer interface layer. Application of heat to the coated thermoplastic article may cause the supramolecular polymer interface layer to undergo a phase change, allowing the coating layer to be removed from the thermoplastic portion. Application of force to the coated thermoplastic article may enhance the removal of the coating layer. Embodiments of methods, compositions, articles and/or systems may be disclosed and claimed.

  • Patent number: 8575059
    Abstract: A metal compound catalyst is formed by vaporizing a quantity of catalyst material and a quantity of carrier thereby forming a vapor cloud, exposing the vapor cloud to a co-reactant and quenching the vapor cloud. The nanoparticles are impregnated onto supports. The supports are able to be used in existing heterogeneous catalysis systems. A system for forming metal compound catalysts comprises components for vaporizing a quantity of catalyst material and a quantity of carrier, quenching the resulting vapor cloud, forming precipitate nanoparticles comprising a portion of catalyst material and a portion of carrier, and subjecting the nanoparticles to a co-reactant. The system further comprises components for impregnating the supports with the nanoparticles.

  • Patent number: 8557337
    Abstract: Provided are magnetic core-ceramic shell (e.g., magnetite (Fe3O4) core-calcium phosphate (Ca3(PO4)2) shell) nanocrystals with high crystallization degree, uniform size, and high chemical stability and a method for synthesizing the same. A core-shell structure is synthesized in a process of forming magnetite seeds corresponding to cores by the reduction of magnetite precursors and then, sequentially, coating the magnetite with Ca3(PO4)2 by the reduction of Ca3(PO4)2 precursors.

  • Publication number: 20130219838
    Abstract: A one piece hoof sock bandage for use with horses, livestock, and other hoofed animals includes an elastic, water resistant sock material having a sole portion coated with a resilient, puncture resistant material. The sock material provides uniform compression to avoid constriction and extends up the leg to the pastern or higher where it is held in place by a cuff portion. The resilient sole portion covers the sole of the hoof and extends up the wall of the hoof far enough to prevent the sole portion from sliding on the hoof and to protect as much of the hoof as desired. The sock and sole portions may contain medications in various forms and generally function to treat the hoof area and protect it from contamination.

  • Publication number: 20130177713
    Abstract: A method is provided for forming a coating layer on a surface, wherein the coating composition includes at least two reactive components. At least one of the components is encapsulated in a plurality of microspheres, which are then mixed with the second component in a single chamber of a container. The mixture is sprayed from the chamber through a single spray nozzle onto the surface. Then, the microspheres degrade to release the first component and allow the first and second components to react with one another, thereby forming the coating layer on the surface.
