  • Patent number: 11034136
    Abstract: Improved automotive security has led to an increase in carjacking and smash and grab crimes. Tempered glass offers little resistant to attacks. Laminated glass improves penetration resistance but only by several seconds. By including a stiff frame in the laminate and a plastic interior 5 layer, the present invention significantly increases the amount of time that an occupant has to react and possibly escape an attack by driving off or for the attack to be detected. In the event of an accident, the invention also provides improved occupant retention, especially for movable glass that is not bonded to the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 11029456
    Abstract: A retroreflector has an arrangement of triples, each having three side surfaces that stand essentially perpendicular on one another. The triples are disposed on a curved or domed surface. The geometry of the triple array is adapted to the curved surface, to even out the thresholds, and extend the side surfaces of a triple. The extensions of the side surfaces project into adjacent triples. Due to the extension projecting into adjacent triples, joints are formed there, which even out the uneven area. The joints can assume the form of a protrusion filled with material or a notch in which material is missing. A forming die produces the retroreflector and a method produces the forming die. The retroreflectors have geometries having full cube surfaces, in other words Full Cubes, for curved or domed surfaces or free-form surfaces.

  • Patent number: 10787753
    Abstract: Anodized substrates having laser markings and methods for forming the same are described. According to some embodiments, the methods involve forming a feature on a substrate using a laser prior to anodizing. The laser energy and pulse width can be chosen so as to provide a particular topology to a surface of the substrate that, after anodizing, absorbs incoming light and imparts a dark appearance to the feature. In some cases, the methods involve forming a coarse oxide layer, which is removed prior to anodizing. Since the laser marking is performed prior to anodizing, the anodized substrates are free from laser-induced cracks, thereby making the anodized substrates more corrosion resistant than conventional laser-marked anodized substrates. The techniques are well suited for forming features on consumer products that may be exposed to water or other corrosion-inducing agents.
