  • Patent number: 9428710
    Abstract: A lubricant coating for laser printer wiper blades is a solution applied to a laser printer wiper blade before install that reduces friction between the wiper blade and the photoconductor drum of a laser printer in order to reduce wear, prevent damage and increase life of the wiper blade and photoconductor drum. A leveling and wetting agent ensures uniform application and reduces coating defects. An anti-wear agent reduces friction and acts as an electrical insulator. A friction reducing agent also reduces friction and acts as an electrical insulator. An evaporation promoting agent aids in evaporation of unnecessary material after application to a wiper blade. A coating enhancing agent increases the hardness of the coating and provides assistance in adherence of the solution to the wiper blade. Deionized water acts as a carrier. The solution is mixed in a high shear mixture.

  • Patent number: 9028908
    Abstract: A system of rollers can transfer fluid from a reservoir to an electrically conductive wire feeding past the reservoir. The system can include a first cylinder that contacts the reservoir and rotates to pick up fluid from the reservoir. A second cylinder can contact the first cylinder and rotate. Fluid can transfer between the first cylinder and the second cylinder. The second cylinder can contact the feeding wire such that the second cylinder applies the fluid to the wire as the wire feeds past the second cylinder. Accordingly, two rotating cylinders can cooperatively transfer fluid from the reservoir to the moving wire.

  • Publication number: 20150098979
    Abstract: A method of imparting enduring beneficial features to a hard flocked surface of an article is provided. The method includes encapsulating a desired beneficial agent as a core material in a polymeric microcapsule, and transferring polymeric microcapsule to the surface by a dipping, spraying, or padding application. The beneficial agent, after getting transferred to the surface of a hard flocked article, imparts long lasting performance, provides fragrance and may protect an article from odor, insect, pest, fungi, bacteria, viruses, and the like. The polymeric microcapsules deliver long lasting benefits to surfaces with flocking, such as clothes hangers. Also described is a process for manufacture of flocked items with benefit delivering polymer microcapsules, without the need for binders or adhesives. Benefit agents are released with shear force on the flocked surface, so they are released when used and provide long-lasting performance.

    Abstract: A method for color coding a tool bit includes the following steps: Firstly, a hexagon receptacle is defined in one end of a shaft of a motor. Then, a tool bit to be colored is inserted into the hexagon receptacle of the shaft of the motor in a coaxial manner. A pneumatic device is utilized to have dyestuff injected from a paint reservoir to a brush. The paint reservoir and the brush then move together with respect to the motor to have the brush in contact with a side surface of the tool bit. And, the motor is turned on to rotate the tool bit so as to have the tool bit be annularly colored by the brush. Upon finished coloring, the paint reservoir and the brush together are returned back to their original positions and the motor is turned off. Finally, the colored tool bit can be removed off the shaft of the motor.

  • Publication number: 20140199489
    Abstract: An applicator for vehicle polishing solution is provided. The user would fill the handle of the device with polishing solution and would be able to continuously polish the vehicle, dispersing the polishing solution at a controlled interval. This applicator would have a hollow tube constituting the handle of the device, which would curve approximately ninety degrees at each end. The top of the handle would have an opening to fill the device and an opening at the bottom to disperse the solution onto the sponge for application. The middle section of the handle would have a button that would enable the user to control the outflow of the solution onto the sponge. The bottom of the handle would be a ball-and-socket swivel joint that would connect the handle to a sponge mount, allowing the sponge mount to be tilted and rotated relative to the handle.

  • Publication number: 20140186539
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a paint-coating brush consisting of a rectangular flat body plate, a handle installed on a center of an upper surface of the body plate, and a plurality of bristles bundled on a lower surface of the body plate, wherein a front end portion of the said plate is bended downward to form a sharp R-shaped muzzle section. The procedures of using the paint-coating brush include: (A) dipping the plurality of bristles in paint; (B) using a front end (tip) portion of the body plate to contact a borderline of a target object and then coating towards a central part of the object being painted. However, the procedure of masking non-coating areas is not included.

  • Publication number: 20140162927
    Abstract: The cleaning formulation and method uses a polysilazane for superior cleaning and to create a protective coating with “easy clean” properties on numerous surface types, including metals, marine paints and gel-coat surfaces; cleaning and guarding them from the effects of all types of accretions, including two of the most pernicious—ice and diesel exhaust soot. The polysilazane is used with a cyclomethicone solvent, preferably pentacyclomethicone and/or hexacyclomethicone. The preferred method of application is by direct contact and application of the cleaning formulation to the treated surface via a microfiber cloth wrapped around a firm rubber blade or the like.
