  • Patent number: 10738417
    Abstract: A knitted spacer fabric has a tightly knitted bottom layer, a more loosely knitted upper layer and linking fibres extending across the space between the lower and upper faces. Settable material, e.g. cement, is introduced into the space between the upper and lower faces and can be caused to set by the addition of a liquid, e.g. water. Until set, the fabric is flexible and can be shaped but after the material in space has set, the fabric is rigid and can be used as a structural element in a wide range of situations. The bottom layer has an extension that extends beyond the upper face and is connected to the upper face by elastic connecting fibres that draw the extension towards the other face, thereby at least partly closing the space at the edge of the cloth and preventing the settable material from spilling out.

  • Patent number: 9889491
    Abstract: A method may be used to produce a seamless pressure vessel for storing hydrogen. So that such a pressure vessel withstands both very high internal pressures and pressure fluctuations and (low) temperatures and temperature fluctuations and also high mechanical loading, is resistant to embrittlement, and is comparatively lightweight, a round or tubular workpiece may be formed that includes a multi-layer composite sheet metal material comprising a carrier layer made of steel material and a shielding layer resistant to hydrogen embrittlement by a flow forming process into a seamless hollow body, which serves as a semifinished product to be further processed into the seamless pressure vessel. The shielding layer may represent an inner layer of the pressure vessel. During the flow forming of the workpiece, the shielding layer may be retained as a whole-area, uninterrupted layer.

  • Patent number: 9878518
    Abstract: A joined body 20 includes a first member 21 which is a ceramic containing Si, a second member 22, and a joining portion 30 which is formed of an electrically conductive oxide containing a Fe3O4 phase and which joins the first member 21 and the second member 22. In the joined body 20, no reaction layer is preferably formed at a joining interface between the electrically conductive oxide and the first member 21. The joining portion 30 is preferably formed to have a multilayer structure in which from the first matter 21 to the second member 22, a first layer containing a first oxide of a transition metal, a second layer containing an electrically conductive oxide of a transition metal having a low valence as compared to that of the first oxide, and a mixed layer containing a transition metal and an oxide thereof are formed.

  • Patent number: 9797556
    Abstract: The invention provides a lighting device having a photo-excited phosphor layer, with two monochromatic light beams (1, 1a, 1b) that counter propagate within the phosphor layer (2) thereby providing a destructive interference of the excitation light outside the phosphor layer (2). The excitation light source has an output wavelength greater than a peak absorption wavelength of the phosphor. This enables more efficient conversion of light and reduced heating.

  • Patent number: 9776045
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a carboxylic branched chain-cutting agent for a golf ball-covering ionomer resin, a golf ball coating composition, and a method for manufacturing a golf ball. The present invention can provide a coating composition containing within an appropriate range, a specific compound for use as a carboxylic branched chain-cutting agent for a golf ball-covering ionomer resin, and thus can provide a golf ball on which a bridge is formed between a golf ball covering resin and a coating resin. By providing the coating composition containing a specific composition for use as a carboxylic branched chain-cutting agent for a golf ball-covering ionomer resin, the present invention is appropriate for ensuring the physical properties of the golf ball, such as yellowing resistance, and workability, such as pot life, even eliminating an adhesion pretreatment step, thereby reducing side effects due to the existing pretreatment step while providing a golf ball having excellent physical properties.
