    Abstract: A disk drive includes a disk drive housing having a hole therethrough. A disk is enclosed within the disk drive housing, and is rotatably attached to the disk drive housing. A seal covers the hole through the disk drive housing. The seal includes a conductive layer, a primary dielectric layer, and a gasket layer. The conductive layer has a covered surface region and an exposed planar surface region. The exposed planar surface region is lacking a dielectric coating disposed thereon. The primary dielectric layer includes an adhesive coating disposed between the primary dielectric layer and the covered surface region. The gasket layer includes first and second adhesive gasket layer sides and a gasket opening disposed through the gasket layer. The gasket opening is disposed about the hole in the disk drive housing, with the first adhesive gasket layer attached to the disk drive housing.

    Abstract: A sealing film with a hidden tab includes a bottom layer and a top layer. The bottom layer includes a heat sealing layer, an aluminum foil layer, and a polypropylene layer. The top layer includes a nylon layer and a polyethylene terephthalate layer, and is defined with a connection portion and a tab portion. The nylon layer in the connection portion is adhered to the polypropylene layer by an adhesive. At least a contact is disposed between the nylon layer in the tab portion and the polypropylene layer. Due to physical properties of the material of which the nylon layer in the tab portion is made, the sealing film is likely to sever but easy to peel off. The contact not only prevents the tab portion of the top layer from warping but also enables a user to determine whether the sealing film has ever been used before.

  • Publication number: 20140113131
    Abstract: Provided is a pressure-sensitive adhesive film suitable for an application involving cutting with a short-wavelength laser having a center wavelength of 1.0 ?m to 1.1 ?m. A pressure-sensitive adhesive film 1 according to the present invention comprises a resin film 10 as a substrate, and a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer 20 provided at least on a first face of resin film 10. Substrate 10 has a laser beam absorbance of 20% or higher in a wavelength range of 1000 nm to 1100 nm, and comprises a laser beam-absorbing layer 42 comprising a laser beam-absorbing agent 402 that increases the laser beam absorbance. As laser beam-absorbing agent 402, at least one species selected from a metal powder and a metallic compound powder can be preferably used.
