  • Patent number: 8334055
    Abstract: Light weight composites with high flexural strength comprise epoxy foam sandwiched between two layers of facing material have high strength and low weight and can be used to replace steel structures. The facing layer may be fibrous material especially glass or carbon fibers, the facing material is preferably embedded into the epoxy matrix. Alternatively they may be matching box structures or concentric metal tubes. The sandwich structures may be prepared by laying up the fiber; coating and/or impregnating the layer with epoxy resin, laying a layer of heat activatable foamable epoxy material, providing a further layer of the fibrous material optionally coated and/or impregnated with epoxy resin on the foamable material and heating to foam and cure the epoxy materials. Alternatively they may be formed by extrustion of the foamable material between the surface layers.

  • Patent number: 8298648
    Abstract: A pad element may include a base member, a pair of cover layers, and a plurality of insert elements. The base member defines a plurality of apertures. The cover layers are secured to opposite surfaces of the base member and extend across the apertures. The insert elements are located within the apertures and between the cover layers. As examples, the base member and the insert elements may be formed from polymer foam materials, and the cover layers may be formed from textile materials. The pad element may be utilized to attenuate impact forces and provide one or more of breathability, flexibility, a relatively low overall mass, and launderability.

  • Publication number: 20120270032
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a coated paper product and method for making the coated paper product. The product comprises a paper substrate, which can be of a low quality, that is coated with at least two layers of coating in one embodiment. A first coating layer is applied to the front and back sides of the paper substrate before a second coating layer is applied. The first coating layer comprises titanium dioxide, an aluminum silicate, calcium carbonate, clay and a binder. The second coating layer comprises hollow spherical particles, which provides the coating with an improved ability to spread while improving the coverage and formation of the coating layer, and also comprises a printing additive, titanium dioxide and a binder.
