  • Patent number: 10082226
    Abstract: A hose holder system includes a rigid holder having a substantially vertical section and a substantially horizontal section. A flexible sling movably couples with the substantially horizontal section and includes a first flap and a second flap. A hose couples with the rigid holder through the sling, the hose coupled between the first flap and second flap, the sling supporting a portion of the hose in a position substantially parallel with the substantially horizontal section of the rigid holder. A swiveling base is coupled with the rigid holder and includes an opening therethrough through which the hose passes substantially perpendicularly. In implementations the hose holder system is configured to allow the hose to contact no rigid element of the hose holder system between the opening and a dispenser during use. The hose may enter the sling at an about 90 degree angle and exit at an about 30-35 degree angle.

  • Patent number: 9966168
    Abstract: A method of fabricating a conductive thin film includes the following steps: forming a polymer fiber made of a polymer and a metal precursor distributed in a surface layer near the surface of the polymer fiber; and applying a plasma treatment on the polymer fiber to concurrently etch the polymer and reduce the metal precursor in the surface layer of the polymer fiber. When the plasma treatment is completed, a metal membrane is formed on the surface of the polymer fiber.

  • Patent number: 9931794
    Abstract: Yarns for use in manufacture of composite structures are intermittently coated with adhesive, and may be twisted as well. These yarns are then woven into fabric, and heat and pressure applied to the intermittently-coated yarns to provide dimensional stability and to prevent unravelling of the fabric during cutting and handling. The fabric is then disposed in a mold or over a mandrel, and a curable resin applied and caused to cure. Provision of the adhesive in intermittent fashion limits propagation of cracks that may form at the location of the adhesive, which does not bond well to the curable resin.
