  • Patent number: 11538364
    Abstract: A combined receipt and label roll comprises a core, and a web having a longitudinally-extending axis and wound on the core along the axis. The web includes (i) a substrate having a front side and a back side opposite the front side, (ii) a thermally-sensitive coating disposed on the front side of the substrate, and (iii) a water-based microsphere adhesive disposed on the back side of the substrate along the web axis. The water-based microsphere adhesive comprises at least four separate adhesive patches. The at least four adhesive patches are both sized relative to each other and positioned relative to each other on the back side of the substrate such that additional tack desired can be obtained by increasing volume of the adhesive patches without having to increase coat weight of the adhesive patches.

  • Patent number: 11490616
    Abstract: A plant growth promoting agent which contains cellulose nanofibers and which is directly or indirectly applied to, sprinkled on, or sprayed on a plant. By using cellulose nanofibers having a specific average fiber diameter and a specific average fiber length, agglomeration of the cellulose fibers is thereby suppressed. This enables efficient insecticidal effect to be realized, wherein the insecticidally active ingredient is a non-chemosynthetic material.

  • Patent number: 11383906
    Abstract: An extensible slit sheet paper product is produced having an expandable slit pattern that forms open cells upon expansion of the paper product. The paper product is an extensible paper having an extensibility in the range from 1-9% in the machine direction and 1-5% in the cross direction. The expansion produces an array of hexagonal cells. The expanded extensible paper can be used to wrap an object for shipping by wrapping and cushioning the object in the expanded slit sheet material. The extensible, expandable slit sheet paper can be wrapped around itself to produce a void fill product.

  • Patent number: 11351750
    Abstract: An improved expandable slit-sheet stock material is configured to aid in temporarily restricting opening of a plurality of slits of the slit-sheet stock material, such as during winding of the unexpanded stock material or during expansion of the stock material. Each slit of the plurality of slits includes one or more un-slit reinforcement portions, such as reinforcement ties, extending fully between opposite longitudinal sides of the slit, and disposed between opposed transverse endpoints of the slit. The reinforcement ties minimize or prevent tearing of the stock material during the winding or expansion. A dunnage conversion system for expanding the slit-sheet stock material includes an expander having a pair of opposed rollers. The rollers engage the stock material to effect breaking of the un-slit reinforcement portions and expansion of the slit-sheet stock material.

    Abstract: A strip of absorbent paper product includes a first edge and a second edge defining a strip width. The strip has a centerline extending in a longitudinal direction and equidistant between the first edge and the second edge, and a central region extending in the longitudinal direction and having a central width. The central region extends laterally outwardly on each side of the centerline. The strip can have a first edge region and a second edge region that extend outward from the central region. A first design element is disposed in the central region and includes a visual center point. The strip can also have at least two second design elements. At least one of second design elements can be disposed in the central region, and another second design element can be disposed in the first edge region or the second edge region.

  • Publication number: 20140342133
    Abstract: A repositionable medium includes a base, a paper, and a first repositionable adhesive. The base has a top surface, a bottom surface, a first end edge, and a second end edge. The paper is fixedly coupled to the top surface of the base proximate to the first end edge. The paper has an inner edge and an outer edge. The outer edge is closer to the first end edge than the inner edge is to the first end edge. The inner edge is spaced a first distance from the first end edge of the base. The first repositionable adhesive is fixed to the bottom surface of the base and is not present in a first low adhesion area at a line across a width of the base and spaced a second distance from the second end edge of the base. The second distance equals the length of the first distance.

  • Publication number: 20140335318
    Abstract: A pattern is transferred to a surface of an object via dip transfer printing. Dip transfer printing can leave a void in the pattern on the surface of the object. An ink based label is used to repair (i.e., cover or fill) the void. The ink based label includes an ink layer and an adhesive layer. The ink layer includes a printing of each color of a four-color printing process forming an image representative of a major element of the pattern. The adhesive layer attaches the ink layer to the void in the pattern on the surface of the object. Optionally, the ink based label includes a backing layer between the ink layer and the adhesive layer.

  • Publication number: 20140272236
    Abstract: A sheet material for use as a dissolvable decal comprises a dissolvable paper or polymer layer whose dissolvability in water is enhanced using a temporary water barrier. In one embodiment, the sheet material comprises a dissolvable paper stock layer coated with the temporary water barrier layer in the form of an acrylate polymer. To create the decal, one or more ink layers are applied, either on top of the temporary water barrier, or between the temporary water barrier and a top face of the dissolvable paper stock. The sheet material also comprises a removable release liner comprising a sheet with a silicone release coating on one side. In use, the paper/plastic liner is removed and the resulting decal is then positioned on a vehicle. The decal remains on the vehicle, but it is ultimately removable under high pressure water conditions.

  • Patent number: 8834991
    Abstract: Laminates and methods of making them are generally provided. The methods of making a laminate for use as a clothing tag can include laminating a first fibrous web to a second fibrous web. Both the first and second fibrous webs can include cellulosic fibers and a binder composition present in the respective fibrous web from about 10% by weight to about 100% by weight of the dry weight of the fibrous web. Both the first and second binder composition can include a curable latex polymer and a crosslinker. The second fibrous web can be creped and can have a thickness less than 10 mils. The laminate can be aged for at least about 1 hour at an aging temperature of greater than about 150° F. The resulting laminated and their use in clothing are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20140255645
    Abstract: Systems and methods for allowing a user to create a texture on a substrate while printing in line with inks are disclosed. An image of a desired texture may be provided, and the contrast levels may be adjusted to make the dark areas very dark and the light areas very light. The adjusted image of the texture may be provided to a press as one or more texture image layers. A color image layer may also be provided to the press. The press may print the texture image layers on the substrate first, allowing the ink to build up to create the texture. The final color image layer may then be printed on top of the texture image layers. The printed substrate may be folded to create a final image product, such as a gallery wrap for hanging on a wall.
