  • Publication number: 20150135667
    Abstract: A skinning apparatus and a method of skinning a porous ceramic. The apparatus includes an axial skinning manifold. The axial skinning manifold includes a curved adaptive pipe to flow cement in a circumferential direction from an inlet at a first position and through an adaptive opening along an inner bend of the curve through a land channel disposed along the inner bend. The land channel emits the cement at a constant velocity from a land opening extending proximate the first position to a second position spaced apart from the first position. The land outlet emits cement at a constant velocity around the outer periphery of the porous ceramic to dispose a uniform skin thereon as the porous ceramic moves axially relative to the land outlet.

  • Patent number: 8883253
    Abstract: Brominated butadiene polymers are recovered from solution and formed into particles by spraying the solution onto a heated, mechanically agitated bed of seed particles. The droplets contact the seed particles in the bed and form a polymer layer on the outside of the seed particles, thereby enlarging them. The solvent is removed from the droplets after they make contact with seed particles in the bed. The process allows for the simultaneous removal of solvent and formation of somewhat large particles. The process forms at most small amounts of agglomerates and fines.

  • Patent number: 8834964
    Abstract: The process of the present invention significantly increases the durability of superhydrophobic surfaces, while retaining similar optical properties to those of the original surface. The process uses velocity and heat to take freshly formed nano- and ultrafine particles and can partially embed and chemically bond them to the substrate, creating a strongly bonded nano-to-submicron textured surface. This nanotextured surface can then be modified to have desirable surface properties; for example, it can be hydrophobic, oliophobic, or hydrophilic. The high points of the coating made with this process protect the remainder of the surface from abrasion, thus greatly increasing product life in many uses. In preferred embodiments, the process is used to coat transportation vehicle windshields.

  • Publication number: 20140212592
    Abstract: A super hydrophobic and antistatic brake dust repellent composition using solvents, adhesion promoter, and hydrophobic inorganic nano particles as a main ingredient is provided. Embodiments of the inventive formulation provide a composition/coating, and a process for protecting various surfaces from the appearance of soil, brake dust, grime, muddy water marks, and corrosion. The applied formulation forms an essentially transparent, detachable, and anti-graffiti protective coating on a receptive surface. Embodiments of the coating film are clearly transparent, and retain the aesthetic appeal of the underneath painted film. The composition/coating acts as a self-cleaning coating so it reduces a adsorption of dirt, other contaminants, muddy water, etc. The coating can be applied at room temperature, and within 120 minutes super hydrophobicity can be achieved.

  • Patent number: 8784943
    Abstract: A dry refractory mix and a method for apply the dry refractory mix to a surface. One aspect of the invention utilizes gunning mixes without cement. The dry refractory mix also may include a setting agent that is homogeneously blended with the refractory mix. In operation, when used with pneumatic systems, dry refractory material is fed into a hopper of a gunnite machine, introduced into an air flow, and conveyed by air through one or more hoses to a nozzle. A liquid binder is introduced into the air flow for mixing with the suspended dry refractory material at or before the nozzle. A fitting, such as a water ring with holes, may be used for injecting the binder into the air flow containing the dry refractory material. The mixed refractory/binder material is discharged through the nozzle for application to a surface.

  • Publication number: 20140182224
    Abstract: A composite, prefabricated panel for building construction. A panel includes a central core having a first face and a second face. The central core includes structural framing members assembled to define at least one opening. A substantially rigid insulation is disposed in the at least one opening of the structural framing members. A settable cement, which may be, for example, phosphate ceramic, is provided on each of the first face of the central core and the second face of the central core to form a first face of the panel and a second face of the panel. The insulation may define a plurality of passages, each with phosphate ceramic extending through the passage between and being monolithic with the phosphate ceramic on the first face of the central core and the phosphate ceramic on the second face of the central core. A building system with such panels is provided.

  • Patent number: 8747956
    Abstract: Processes, systems, and apparatuses are disclosed for forming products from atomized metals and alloys. A stream of molten alloy and/or a series of droplets of molten alloy are produced. The molten alloy is atomized to produce electrically-charged particles of the molten alloy by impinging electrons on the stream of molten alloy and/or the series of droplets of molten alloy. The electrically-charged molten alloy particles are accelerated with at least one of an electrostatic field and an electromagnetic field. The accelerating molten alloy particles are cooled to a temperature that is less than a solidus temperature of the molten alloy particles so that the molten alloy particles solidify while accelerating. The solid alloy particles are impacted onto a substrate and the impacting particles deform and metallurgically bond to the substrate to produce a solid alloy preform.
