  • Patent number: 11141966
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing an enhanced, 3D, hand-shaped glove includes placing a seamless textile glove shell onto a laminating form, placing a solid laminate preform onto the glove shell, and applying pressure at an elevated temperature to laminate the preform to the glove shell. A platen or roller press can apply pressure to a glove shell on a flat surface of a laminating form, or a bladder or vacuum bag press can apply pressure to a glove shell on a curved surface of a laminating form. Edge peel resistance can be enhanced by extending the perimeter of a low modulus upper preform layer beyond underlying layers and bonding it directly to the glove shell. Fingers of the laminating form can be made wide and thin to cause warping of the preform about the glove fingers, or narrow and thick to minimize distortion of the finger shapes due to the preform.

  • Patent number: 9137899
    Abstract: A process of electronic structure is provided. First, a carrier board is provided, in which the carrier board has a first surface. Next, a first release layer is formed on the first surface of the carrier board. The first release layer has property of withstanding high-temperature and temporary adhesion capability and the first release layer entirely or mostly overlays the first surface. Then, a built-up structure is formed on the first release layer. Finally, a separating process is performed so that the built-up structure is separated from the carrier board to form an electronic structure.

  • Patent number: 9034449
    Abstract: The adhesive film includes a film-like adhesive layer, a light release separator and a heavy release separator that are laminated on either side of the adhesive layer, and a carrier film further laminated on the heavy release separator. The outer edges of the light release separator and the carrier film forming the outer layer extend outward beyond the outer edge of the adhesive layer and the heavy release separator forming the inner layer. The outer edge sections of the adhesive layer are thereby protected. The outer edge section of the carrier film is gripped and released first, after which the outer edge section of the light release separator is gripped and released, and finally the heavy release separator is released, thereby allowing each separator and the carrier film to be reliably and easily released in the prescribed order.

  • Patent number: 9034448
    Abstract: Adhesive articles are prepared through the use of modified release liners. The modified release liners include a fracturable layer and a release surface partially covering the fracturable layer. The modified release liners may be prepared by selective coating of a release material onto the fracturable layer or by selective treatment of a release surface to expose portions of the fracturable layer. Upon removal of an adhesive layer adhered to the modified release liner, portions of the fracturable layer of the release liner adhere to the adhesive layer to form a modified adhesive layer.

    Abstract: A spool of traverse wound double-sided PSA tape and method of making same. The PSA tape includes an adhesive body with an upper adhesive surface releasably adhered to a bottom side of a release liner having a release value. At least one reinforcing strand is disposed longitudinally through the adhesive body. The PSA tape is traverse wound onto a core in successive winding layers with each successive winding layer producing an outer winding layer with the bottom side of its adhesive body crossing at an angle over the top side of the release liner of a preceding inner winding layer. The tensile strength of the at least one reinforcing strand is greater than a Resistance Bond of the outer winding layer to the preceding inner winding layer.

  • Patent number: 9029269
    Abstract: A method of treating the surface of a semiconductor wafer through the formation of a bonding system is provided in order to enhance the handling of the wafer during subsequent processing operations. The method generally comprises the steps of applying a release layer and an adhesive to different wafers; bonding the wafers together to form a bonded wafer system; performing at least one wafer processing operation (e.g., wafer grinding, etc.) to form a thin processed wafer; debonding the wafers; and then cleaning the surface of the processed wafer with an organic solvent that is capable of dissolving the release layer or any residue thereof. The adhesive includes a vinyl-functionalized polysiloxane oligomeric resin, a Si—H functional polysiloxane oligomeric resin, a catalyst, and optionally an inhibitor, while the release layer is comprised of either a silsesquioxane-based resin or a thermoplastic resin.
