  • Patent number: 11167115
    Abstract: Conventionally, a coil formed in an irregular shape is used on a distal end side of the coil of a guide wire or a distal joining section is used on the tip of the guide wire to shorten a length in a longitudinal direction of a rigid joint portion for improving the passing performance to the occluded lesion. However, it is not enough especially in the completely occluded lesion. Thus, it is an important technical problem to improve both the passing performance and safety. An outer coil having a coil inclined portion and a distal joining section connected with the coil inclined portion are provided on a distal end portion of the guide wire. In the coil inclined portion, each one turn of a coil wire is continuously inclined in a longitudinal direction. Thus, both the passing performance and safety can be remarkably improved especially in the completely occluded lesion.

    Abstract: Disclosed are a flexible paper-based surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrate and a method of preparing the same, which relate to detection of trace organics. This invention deposits a film of silver nanoparticles on a carrier such as filter paper by oblique-angle deposition to prepare the SERS substrate, which can be used for the detection of trace organics. Silver nanoparticles are closely arranged on the flexible paper, allowing the substrate for good SERS effect due to the interparticle coupling effect. Moreover, compared to the traditional rigid and brittle substrates, the substrate prepared herein can be readily used in the detection of residual organics on complex surfaces in various liquid or solid conditions by dipping, dropwise adding or wiping due to the use of a flexible and absorbent carrier.

  • Patent number: 10604890
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of manufacturing a high tenacity yarn and a high tenacity yarn manufactured thereby. More particularly, the present invention relates to: a method of manufacturing a high tenacity yarn, the method including coating a yarn made of at least one of nylon and polyester to obtain a coated yarn, wherein the coating material contains 3 to 35 parts by weight of a reinforcing agent composed of a mineral material per 100 parts by weight of a coating liquid containing polyurethane; and a high tenacity yarn manufactured thereby. Therefore, it is possible to manufacture a yarn having high tenacity and improved processability by processing a nylon or polyester yarn having a relatively low tenacity as compared with a high modulus polyethylene (HMPE) yarn by use of a yarn coating technique, and further to reduce production cost.

  • Patent number: 10462900
    Abstract: A process of improving resistance to conductive anodic filament (CAF) formation is disclosed. The process includes dissolving a base resin material, a lubricant material, and a coupling agent in a solvent to form a functionalized sizing agent solution. The process also includes applying the functionalized sizing agent solution to individual glass fibers following a glass fiber formation process. The process further includes removing the solvent via a thermal process that partially converts the base resin material. The thermal process results in formation of coated glass fibers having a flowable resin coating that is compatible with a pre-impregnated (prepreg) matrix material utilized to form a prepreg material for manufacturing a printed circuit board. During one or more printed circuit board manufacturing operations, the flowable resin coating flows to fill voids between the individual glass fibers that represent CAF formation pathways.
