  • Patent number: 8911878
    Abstract: Metal-clad polymer articles containing structural fine-grained and/or amorphous metallic coatings/layers optionally containing solid particulates dispersed therein. The fine-grained and/or amorphous metallic coatings are particularly suited for strong and lightweight articles, precision molds, sporting goods, automotive parts and components exposed to thermal cycling although the CLTE of the metallic layer and the one of the substrate is mismatched. The interface between the metallic layer and the polymer is suitably pretreated to withstand thermal cycling without failure.

  • Publication number: 20140331912
    Abstract: An apparatus for friction reduction and biofouling prevention is invented, which consists of an anodic electro-catalytic layer and a cathodic electro-catalytic layer installed on the submerged surface of a carrier. There is an insulating filling between the anodic layer and the cathodic layer. The layered coatings are applied with the use of electric arc spraying technique. A first DC power supply unit is connected to the anodic layer and the cathodic layer. The anodic layer, the cathodic layer, the DC power supply unit, and water together form the conducting path for water electro-catalysis. Hydrogen and oxygen gases are produced to form a thin gas film on the submerged surface to reduce friction and prevent biofouling on the carrier. Alternatively, the apparatus produces hydroxyl radicals to kill marine microorganisms and reduce the risk of biofouling and biocorrosion.

    Abstract: A silicon carbide material according to the present invention includes a substrate containing, as a main component, silicon carbide or containing, as main components, silicon carbide and metallic silicon, and a film covering at least a portion of the surface of the substrate. The film contains, as a main component, a phase including at least four elements: lithium (Li), aluminum (Al), silicon (Si), and oxygen (O). One example of such a silicon carbide material includes a substrate having a structure in which silicon carbide particles are bonded by metallic silicon, and a lithium aluminosilicate film covering at least a portion of the surface of the silicon carbide particles. Such a silicon carbide material can be used for a DPF, an electric heating type catalytic converter, or the like.

  • Publication number: 20130295376
    Abstract: A composite material includes a matrix composed of a polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) polymer and a filler composed of particles dispersed in the matrix. The particles are composed of naturally-derived materials (e.g., ground bone meal or pumice powder), have a microporous microstructure, have a low hygroscopic expansion, and are less than 1.0 mm in size. Preferably, the matrix and the filler together constitute 100% by weight of the composite material, and at most 30% by volume of the composite material is consumed by the filler. The composite material may take the form of an anaerobically biodegradable article of manufacture such as a building material a coating of a building material or other article.

  • Publication number: 20130288042
    Abstract: Provided herein include methods and compositions pertaining to coatings, such as paints, for covering a substrate. In some aspects and embodiments the coatings may include a heat reflective metal oxide pigment that, applied to an external surface of a building (or is applied on a substrate used for an external surface of a building such as an architectural metal panel, EIFS, as a stucco top coat or as a top coat for roofing tiles) reduces the energy consumption in the building. In other aspects and embodiments, provided are textured coatings having a texturing material; for example, methods and compositions are provided pertaining to textured coatings that can be applied robotically or in an automated fashion. In various aspects and embodiments, textured coatings are provided that include a texturing material and a heat reflective metal oxide pigment. In some aspects and embodiments heat reflective coatings for concrete or clay tiles and methods of applying such are provided.

  • Publication number: 20130260117
    Abstract: Identification devices (e.g., wristbands) including a face stock comprising a tough polyolefin material and a flexible vinyl layer are provided. A direct thermal chemistry layer can be deposited directly onto a top surface of the face stock or alternatively a pre-print color layer can be depositing directly onto the top surface of the face stock and the direct thermal chemistry layer can be deposited/located onto the free side of the pre-print layer. The flexible vinyl layer can be adhered to a bottom side of the face stock via an adhesive tie-layer sandwiched between the bottom side of the face stock and the flexible vinyl layer. If desired, an anti-cling layer can also be incorporated into the identification devices.
