  • Patent number: 11286079
    Abstract: A labeling apparatus comprises a separation member configured to promote detachment of an adhesive label from liner web. Adhesive labels are fed to the separation member such that a surface of the facestock contacts the separation member. The separation member has a surface exhibiting a tack such that the tack force between the facestock and the separation member is greater than the release force between the release liner and the adhesive layer of the labels. The labels become associated with the separation member, and the label is applied to a surface of a substrate by contacting the exposed adhesive layer with a surface of a substrate, which causes the adhesive label to detach from the separation member.

  • Patent number: 10820075
    Abstract: The present invention provides a sound generator. The sound generator of the present disclosure is characterized in that the front cover hollows to form the glue slot which is around and communicated with the positioning holes. After being filled into the glue slot, the glue flows into the gap between the melting point posts and the positioning holes for filling. Therefore the horizontal sway of the front cover is reduced and even avoided, and then the front cover is fixed stably. At the same time, with the gap, the glue can flow to the position between the frame and the front cover, which increases the fixing strength and stability between the front cover and the frame with the melting points as well as the tensile property of the front cover, and therefore the acoustic stability of the sound generator is further optimized.

  • Patent number: 10813228
    Abstract: Implementations of the disclosure describe techniques for eliminating or reducing hot tearing in via-in-pad plated over (VIPPO) solder joints by incorporating an adhesive into a printed circuit board assembly (PCBA). In an embodiment, the adhesive is an adhesive containing fluxing agent that prevents tearing by reducing a differential in thermal expansion caused by a coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) mismatch between a plated metal of the VIPPO pads and the PCB substrate.

  • Patent number: 10765640
    Abstract: [Problem] If lidocaine is composed of non-aqueous patch, the adhesive power of the preparation tends to get lower, as the composition amount of lidocaine is higher. It is popular to solve lidocaine in dissolving agent in order to compose lidocaine in patch and release effective amount into skin. However, if the amount of dissolving agent gets higher, the adhesive power gets extremely lower, so that an long-time attachment is difficult. [Solution] A non-aqueous patch comprising lidocaine and/or its reactant, and a dissolving agent which are contained in a base of plaster, the plaster being hold by a support, of which strength of 50% stretched to longitudinal direction is less than 2,000 g/50 mm and of biaxially-oriented stretch cloth.

  • Patent number: 10731057
    Abstract: A PVC-based cover strip designed to bond to non-PVC materials as well as PVC materials includes a PVC layer coated with a barrier effective to prevent migration of plasticizers from the PVC layer. The barrier layer, in turn, is coated with a primer and subsequently a pressure-sensitive adhesive. The barrier layer is generally a polar polymer, such as acrylonitrile rubber which resists migration of phthalate plasticizers. The pressure-sensitive adhesive layer is a pressure-sensitive adhesive suitable for use in roofing applications.

  • Patent number: 10731978
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed toward a method for measuring a seal gap between a closing member and a fixed member. The method includes applying a liquid agent having transferable properties along one or more regions of a stamping member to form one or more base marks. The stamping member is one of the closing member or the fixed member. The method further includes engaging the closing member with the fixed member, disengaging the closing member from the fixed member, and assessing a seal gap between the closing member and the fixed member based on one or more remnant patterns formed on an imprinted member. The imprinted member is the other one of the closing member and the fixed member, and the remnant patterns are formed by the transfer of the liquid agent from the base marks.

  • Patent number: 10695235
    Abstract: An aesthetically pleasing elastic film with three-dimensional characteristics is provided. In one embodiment, a two-dimensional ink structure is printed onto an elastic film, which is then activated, for example, by heat, which transforms the two-dimensional ink structure into a three-dimensional ink structure on one or more outer surfaces of the film. The location and amount of ink applied can be selectively controlled so that the film has the desired hand feel without sacrificing the elastic properties of the film. Further the printing and activating of the ink can be controlled to increase the tear resistance of the film or to conversely allow the film to tear or rip at desired locations on demand. In another embodiment, the elastic film can be laminated to a facing to form a laminate, where the outer surface of the film that is not in contact with the facing contains the three-dimensional ink structures.
