  • Patent number: 8592020
    Abstract: To achieve further weight reduction and thinning of a seat structure. A configuration in which a side frame cover 212 composed of a laminated body 1 provided with a planar member made of cloth and planar members made of synthetic resin laminated on both sides of the planar member made of cloth via adhesive agent and formed in a predetermined shape is joined to a side frame base body 211 composed of a metal member is obtained. Therefore, the thickness of the metal member used can be reduced by an amount corresponding to a strength the laminated body compensates for, which results in achievement of further weight reduction from a conventional structural member composed of only metal members that are used at the same site. Further, when an impact force is applied, the impact force can be consumed as a force that causes delamination of the laminated body from the metal member at a portion where they are joined via the adhesive agent.

  • Publication number: 20120113361
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to an optical level composite pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA), which includes a first portion and a second portion, which have different crosslinked densities and together form a mono-composite structure. The first portion and the second portion may be respectively bonded to a first lamination layer and a second lamination layer that are heterogeneous to each other. Accordingly, different interfacial adhesion and bulk rheology are generated at the interface of the first portion/first, lamination layer and the interface of the second portion/second lamination layer.
