  • Patent number: 8889240
    Abstract: Provided are adhesive articles and assemblies that include a flat and at least partially elastic backing along with a patterned adhesive coating on each side of the backing. When viewed from directions perpendicular to the backing, the adhesive on one side of the backing does not substantially overlap the adhesive on the opposing side of the backing. As a result, it is possible to use a stretch removable adhesive article that uses, for example, an aggressive adhesive to provide a reliable bond but still remove cleanly and easily from delicate substrates that would otherwise be damaged or destroyed if bonded with conventional adhesive constructions.

  • Patent number: 8883290
    Abstract: A floor marking tape has a structure that retains the adhesive under the tape to prevent the adhesive from being squeezed out from under the tape when the tape is in use on a floor. In one embodiment, the structure is a shoulder that defines a recess that holds the bulk of the adhesive. The shoulder prevents the adhesive from flowing out to the outer edge of the tape. The tape may have beveled edges that limit the unintentional lifting and delamination of the tape from the floor. The upper surface of the tape may be curved from edge-to-edge to limit dirt retention on the tape as well as allowing objects to slide over the tape.

    Abstract: A scuffguard for a stair riser includes a first layer, a second layer, and a third layer. The first layer has a front side, a back side, and a thickness. The front side of the first layer has a front face being made from a scuff resistant material. The second layer is a pressure sensitive adhesive on the back side of the first layer. The pressure sensitive adhesive is for attaching the first layer to a stair riser. The third layer is removably attached to the pressure sensitive adhesive. Whereby, the third layer may be removed from the pressure sensitive adhesive to expose the pressure sensitive adhesive for installation of the first layer on the stair riser. The method of protecting a stair riser uses the scuffguard, where the third layer is removed from the pressure sensitive adhesive, and the first layer is attached to the stair riser via the pressure sensitive adhesive.

    Abstract: Doped adhesive tape is used during the manufacture of aircraft, including positioning marks, covering orifices from debris, allowing locations to be marked. Any doped adhesive tape inadvertently left in sub-assemblies during the manufacturing process can be detected using backscatter X-ray inspection technology. Detection is facilitated in one embodiment by making the tape thicker, to produce an increased mass density, and in another embodiment by adding a dopant comprising an element that is readily detected by the backscatter X-ray technology. The element can be iodine, and can be incorporated into the backing layer or the adhesive layer of the tape during manufacturing. The use of both thicker tape and a dopant can be used in combination to facilitate detection. If the doped adhesive tape is detected after components are assembled using a backscatter X-ray inspection device, then the doped adhesive tape is removed.

  • Publication number: 20140230846
    Abstract: The present method comprises providing a flexible web substrate (e.g., polymeric flexible web substrates) that forms at least part of a component of a device, coating so as to wet-out on and cover all or a substantial portion of a major surface on one side or both sides of the flexible web substrate with flowable polymeric material, while the flexible web substrate is moving in a down-web direction, and solidifying the polymeric material so as to form one cleaning layer on the major surface of one side or both sides of the flexible web substrate. The present invention can be utilized in a continuous in-line manufacturing process. In applications of the present invention where the flexible web substrate will not form a component of a device, the present invention broadly provides a method for cleaning particles from a flexible web of indefinite length.

  • Patent number: 8800471
    Abstract: A visual indicator used to indicate a disposition of an end of a tape comprises a colored layer, and one or more layers of elongate polymer elements, or one or more polarizing layers, or one or more dichroic filter layers. When the tape is stretched as a piece is torn or cut away, an orientation of the polymer elements, or a polarization configuration, or a thickness of the dichroic layers is changed, changing a color, opacity, or reflectance visually evident at the end of the tape. In other embodiments, the visual indicator comprises one or more visible lines that run diagonally across the width of the tape, either in successive sections or along the entire length, so that a discontinuity between the line at the end and at an adjacent point on the remainder of the tape indicates the disposition of the end and an approximate amount of tape remaining.

  • Patent number: 8802224
    Abstract: Disclosed is a reinforcing material for the local reinforcement of a component formed with a composite material, in particular in areas of force introduction and/or connecting areas. The reinforcing material is formed by a metallic sheet-like formation, the metallic sheet-like formation having a surface with increased roughness to improve adhesion and a coating applied to the surface to provide a seal and improve the bond with the composite material. As a result of the presence of a coating on the metallic sheet-like formation, once it has been rolled up on supply rolls, said sheet-like formation can be drawn off from the supply rolls and at the same time processed in an automated manner by means of known computer-controlled laying devices with CRP prepreg materials in web form by laying layer by layer to produce components, in particular of large format, for aircraft.
