    Abstract: The invention is an apparatus that allows individual adhesive strips to be easily and efficiently accessed by a medical professional. Specifically, the apparatus is defined by a series of adhesive strips that are offset and overlayed. Each adhesives strip includes a folded edge that allows a medical professional to grasp an individual adhesive strip, remove it from the adjacent strip, and use it for a particular application. When an additional adhesive strip is needed, the medical professional can repeat the process with the next (e.g., top) adhesive strip until all of the strips have been used.

  • 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: 11119533
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a device screen having an active region where the screen can provide output to a user or receive input from the user. A screen outer layer, such as a removable screen protector, is positionable between the device screen and the user and capable of passing the output or the input therethrough. The screen outer layer includes an active region that corresponds to the active region of the device screen, and the screen outer layer has an etched marking in the active region of the screen outer layer. In one version, the etched marking is provided on the inner surface. A method of using an electronic device includes installing on a device screen a screen outer layer, wherein the screen outer layer includes an active region that corresponds to the active region of the device screen, and wherein the screen outer layer has an etched marking in the active region of the screen outer layer.

  • Patent number: 10886153
    Abstract: Micro pick-and-bond heads, assembly methods, and device assemblies. In, embodiments, micro pick-and-bond heads transfer micro device elements, such as (micro) LEDs, en masse from a source substrate to a target substrate, such as a LED display substrate. Anchor and release structures on the source substrate enable device elements to be separated from a source substrate, while pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) enables device elements to be temporarily affixed to pedestals of a micro pick-and bond head. Once the device elements are permanently affixed to a target substrate, the PSA interface may be defeated through peeling and/or thermal decomposition of an interface layer.
