  • Patent number: 10383530
    Abstract: A protective liner for use with a blood pressure measuring cuff includes three layers of material configured to protect a person's skin, wick moisture away from the person's skin, and provide a moisture permeable, microporous barrier to microbes. The protective liner is porous and sufficiently thin so that the protective liner will not substantially interfere with blood pressure monitoring through the protective liner. The three layers of material are configured to wick moisture therethrough away from the person's skin, while substantially preventing passage of microbes therethrough.

  • Patent number: 9796161
    Abstract: The invention is a paper based card with an assembly of adhesive sheet, barrier strip and wax paper that is utilized to minimize transfer of particles between individuals and object surfaces. A disposable strip in the assembly, upon wear, adheres to the skin and serves as a barrier to minimize transfer of particles. This low cost invention is stackable, easy to carry, suited for routine use and facilitates easy wear of the barrier strip by placing selective regions of the palm on the cards. The invention complements other common methods such as hand washing and hand sanitizing which are routinely used to maintain hygiene and differentiates itself from other related inventions. The strips after wear promote hygiene and minimize direct contact with particles, thus addressing some of the limitations of the existing methods.

    Abstract: Coextruded films provide cross directional zoned multiple components side-by-side to one another. Systems and methods relate to coextruding such films. During coextrusion, a first polymer conjoins with a second polymer while a temperature differential is maintained between the first and second polymers. This temperature differential is selected to reduce a difference between the viscosities of the first and second polymers making the viscosity of the first polymer close enough to the viscosity of the second polymer to avoid separation upon coextrusion. Further, the films may form a layer in subsequent lamination to other material layers.

  • Patent number: 8507075
    Abstract: A methodology for adhesively attaching a barrier sheet to a motor vehicle inside door panel. A plurality of adhesive beds are disposed on the attachment face of a barrier sheet, whereby pressure applied to the barrier sheet causes the adhesive beads to wet-out with respect to the door inside panel and mergingly wet-out with respect to each other so as to thereby form an adhesive band. Visual inspection of the continuity of the merged wet-out through the barrier sheet provides installer feedback regarding installation integrity.

  • Publication number: 20130202856
    Abstract: Coextruded films provide cross directional zoned multiple components side-by-side to one another. Systems and methods relate to coextruding such films. During coextrusion, a first polymer conjoins with a second polymer while a temperature differential is maintained between the first and second polymers. This temperature differential is selected to reduce a difference between the viscosities of the first and second polymers making the viscosity of the first polymer close enough to the viscosity of the second polymer to avoid separation upon coextrusion. Further, the films may form a layer in subsequent lamination to other material layers.

  • Publication number: 20130101808
    Abstract: An architectural construct is a synthetic material that includes a matrix characterization of different crystals. An architectural construct can be configured as a solid mass or as parallel layers that can be on a nano-, micro-, and macro-scale. Its configuration can determine its behavior and functionality under a variety of conditions. Implementations of an architectural construct can include its use as a substrate, sacrificial construct, carrier, filter, sensor, additive, and catalyst for other molecules, compounds, and substances, or may also include a means to store energy and generate power.

  • Patent number: 8415263
    Abstract: A composite material as a sheet material is described, being relatively cheap, most useful as a raw material of a sanitary product or the like, such as underwear, dust-proof mask or dispensable paper diaper, etc., and good in processability, stretchability, gas-permeability, softness, and touch. The composite material is formed by laminating a stretchable layer and a conjugate spunbonded nonwoven fabric including conjugate fibers including a low-melting-point component and a high-melting-point component. The conjugate fibers are partially bonded to each other by thermocompression, wherein each bonded portion has fine folded structures including alternate hill and valley regions in the CD, and the distance between neighboring hills is 100-400 ?m in average. The conjugate spunbonded nonwoven fabric exhibits stretchability through the spread of the fine folded structures, and has, at 5% elongation, a CD-strength of 0.1 N/5 cm or less and an MD/CD strength ratio of 200 or more.

  • Publication number: 20130037308
    Abstract: A method of fabricating a reinforced glass cell including the following steps is provided. First, a mother glass having a plurality of glass cell predetermined regions is provided. A portion of the mother glass disposed on the outer edge of each glass cell predetermined region is removed, so as to form at least one through trench and at least one linking bridge. Herein, the through trench exposes the periphery section of each glass cell predetermined region, and the glass cell predetermined regions are formed as an entire patterned mother glass by the linking bridges. A reinforcing process is performed to the entire patterned mother glass, so that the exposed periphery sections of the glass cell predetermined regions are formed into reinforced sections. The linking bridges are removed so as to separate the glass cell predetermined regions having the reinforced sections to form a plurality of reinforced glass cells.
