  • Patent number: 10770207
    Abstract: There are provided a rare-earth permanent magnet and a manufacturing method of a rare-earth permanent magnet capable of preventing deterioration of magnet properties. In the method, magnet material is milled into magnet powder. Next, a mixture 12 is prepared by mixing the magnet powder and a binder, and the mixture 12 is formed into a sheet-like shape to obtain a green sheet 14. Thereafter, magnetic field orientation is performed to the green sheet 14, which is then held for several hours in a non-oxidizing atmosphere at a pressure higher than normal atmospheric pressure, at 200 through 900 degrees Celsius for calcination. Thereafter, the calcined green sheet 14 is sintered at a sintering temperature. Thereby a permanent magnet 1 is manufactured.

    Abstract: A removable covering for an object includes an adhered section that is adhered to the object (e.g., adhered to a receiving surface of the object via an adhesive layer) and a free section that is not adhered to the object. The removable covering is sufficiently flexible to allow at least partial removal of the adhered section from the object by application of a force to the removable covering. Typically, the removable covering is adhered to the object such that resistance to removal of the covering from the object varies at different zones of attachment between the removable covering and the object. The resistance variation may be achieved, for example, by employing tabs, loops, folds, varying-strength adhesive strips, textures and/or release coatings. Exemplary packaging systems (e.g., containing removable coverings and/or objects) include features such that resistance to removal of the packaging system from an object varies at different phases of removal.

  • Publication number: 20120186735
    Abstract: A device and method for applying a prearranged pattern (e.g. words, numbers, designs, etc.) of individual decorative elements, such as faceted glass crystals, faceted plastic crystals or rhinestones in unison, with a single application, using a pressure sensitive adhesive to thereby provide for an easy single application of the entire prearranged pattern. The prearranged patterns of decorative elements are sandwiched in between a clear acetate top layer and a coated paper bottom layer. To apply the prearranged pattern to a surface, the coated paper bottom layer is removed, leaving the individual decorative elements attached to the clear acetate top layer, before pressing the top layer against the surface. After pressing the prearranged pattern against the surface, the clear acetate top layer is removed, leaving the prearranged pattern of individual decorative elements firmly attached to the surface.

  • Patent number: 8163365
    Abstract: A method for forming a sheet of label material is provided. The label material is used to form a label for placement on an object and for subsequent removal from the object without damaging the object. The method includes providing a paper substrate that has an adhesive receiving face and coating an adhesive on the adhesive receiving face of the paper substrate using a gravure coater to form a repetitive pattern of adhesive areas. For example, repetitive dots of adhesive assure a uniform, discontinuous coating of adhesive that allows repositioning of the label, that prevents tearing of or damage to a substrate when the label is removed, including from a newspaper, and that maintains sufficient adhesion to adhere to difficult substrates such as textured surfaces. The adhesive is a water based adhesive. In alternative embodiments, the adhesive is coated on an adhesive receiving face of a release liner, and the adhesive receiving face of the paper substrate removably adheres to the release liner.
