  • Patent number: 11510804
    Abstract: The present application generally relates to support articles and methods of making and using them. The support articles of the present disclosure provide compression and/or stabilization of sore joints of muscles. In some embodiments, the compression and/or enhanced stabilization is provided, at least in part, by one or more straps. In some embodiments, the support articles also include one or more reinforcing portions. In some embodiments, the support articles can easily be applied by a non-trained user and can be worn in many conditions (including, for example, in the shower or during exercise) for up to three days. The support articles have a relatively slim profile and are thus discreet such that they can be worn under clothing without being noticeable.

  • Patent number: 11135614
    Abstract: Methods of applying a polymeric coating to a rear face surface of golf club heads with variable face thickness are disclosed herein. The coating, which preferably comprises polyurea, improves the durability of the face and reduces the hits to failure ratio of the golf club head. The coating improves the performance of the golf club head because it allows for reduction in overall face thickness and easy post-process manipulation to allow for fine-tuning of mass properties after production. The reduction in thickness leads to overall weight reduction, because the polymer is roughly a quarter of the density of titanium or stainless steel, and also reinforces the face, thereby increasing the lifespan of the club.

  • Patent number: 10428243
    Abstract: A method of assembling a door on a vehicle begins by identifying critical fit areas between the door seal and the door frame. Pressure indicator tape is adhered to the seal in critical fit areas and the door is closed against the seal to produce a marking on the pressure indicator tape. Intensity of the marking is visually compared to a reference pressure intensity scale to establish an observed pressure intensity level. The observed pressure intensity level may be recorded, correlated to a specific critical fit area and analyzed to make operational and design improvements to the door, door frame or seal.

The pixel define layer is arranged on a conductive layer of a substrate and comprises a base film layer. The base film layer has a plurality of openings each of which corresponds to a light-emitting region of a sub-pixel unit. A spacing base body is formed between the adjacent openings. An upper surface of each spacing base body is coated with a hydrophobic quantum dot material and a side wall of each opening is coated with a hydrophilic quantum dot material. With the pixel define layer and manufacturing method thereof and the related light emitting display according to embodiments of the disclosure, the ink within the sub-pixel would not ooze to the outside of the sub-pixel to result in color mixture between the adjacent sub-pixels, and the light emitting region within the pixel would not be decreased. By selecting suitable quantum dot materials, the photochromic efficiency can be improved.
