  • Publication number: 20150044383
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices of the various embodiments provide thermoset (or thermoplastic)/carbon nanotube (CNT) sheet nanocomposites fabricated by resistive heating assisted infiltration and cure (RHAIC) of a polymer matrix resin. In an embodiment, resin infusion may achieved by applying a first lower voltage to a CNT reinforcement. Once the resin infusion process is complete, the voltage may be increased to a second higher voltage which may rapidly cure the polymer matrix. In an embodiment, an epoxy SC-85 and hardener may be used. In another embodiment, present a bismaleimide (BMI) may be used for the matrix material.

  • Publication number: 20150044384
    Abstract: A coating apparatus includes a first water repellent portion that is formed on a liquid supply surface provided in a liquid supply platform to once retain a liquid to be transferred to a coating object, and a hydrophilic portion that is formed around the first water repellent portion. Further, a coating method includes supplying a liquid to a top surface of a liquid supply platform, which is a liquid supply surface formed with a water repellent portion and a hydrophilic portion disposed around the water repellent portion, and transferring by pressing a coating object of the liquid against the liquid that is retained by the liquid supply surface.

  • Patent number: 8945678
    Abstract: An article of manufacture and a method of manufacturing a soft batt insulation material. The article of manufacture comprises fibers having crimps and surface features such as scales that provide a batt structure which is resiliently compressible. Fiber treatments provide fire, pest, fungus, and mold resistance. The treatments can be to the surface or to the internal structure of the fiber. The insulation batts are comprised of one or more layers of intermeshed fibers. The fibers can be wool or other protein based hair. The batts can include a restrainment structure that limits that expansion of the batts.

  • Patent number: 8940356
    Abstract: A system and method for coating an expandable member of a medical device comprising a support structure to support the expandable member and a dispenser positioned with at least one outlet proximate a surface of an expandable member. A drive assembly establishes relative movement between the at least one outlet and the surface of the expandable member to apply fluid on the surface of the expandable member along a coating path. A guide maintains a substantially fixed distance between the at least one outlet and the surface of the expandable member during relative movement therebetween by displacing the expandable member relative to the at least one outlet.
