  • Patent number: 10636679
    Abstract: A device comprises a substrate and an adhesive nanoparticle layer patterned into zones of electrical conductance and insulation on top of the substrate surface. A diffusion region adjoining the surface comprises an admixture of the nanoparticles in the substrate material. When the nanoparticle layer is patterned from originally all-conductive nanoparticles, the insulating zones are created by selective oxidation; when the nanoparticle layer is patterned from originally all-non-conductive nanoparticles, the conductive zones are created by depositing selectively a volatile reducing agent. A package of insulating material is in touch with the nanoparticle layer and fills any voids in the nanoparticle layer.

  • Patent number: 10427386
    Abstract: The present invention provides a semi-product made of a prepreg, a three-dimensional preform and an overmolded part. More particularly, the present invention provides a semi-product made of a prepreg, including at least a first prepreg layer and a second prepreg layer, characterized in that a magnetic material layer is laid between the first prepreg layer and the second prepreg layer. Since the magnetic material layer is added between the prepreg layers, the produced semi-product, when being made into a three-dimensional preform and further into an overmolded part, can be well supported and positioned due to attraction to the magnetic material layer by the magnet on the die, and therefore be precisely shaped.
