  • Patent number: 10980310
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to articles that include one or more coated fiber(s) (i.e., fiber(s) with a cured coating disposed thereon), where the coating includes a matrix of crosslinked polymers and optionally a colorant (e.g., pigment particles or dye or both). The cured coating is a product of crosslinking a coating composition including uncrosslinked polymers (e.g., a dispersion of uncrosslinked polymers in a carrier, wherein the uncrosslinked polymers are crosslinked to form the matrix of crosslinked polymers). The present disclosure is also directed to articles including the coated fibers, methods of forming the coated fibers and articles, and methods of making articles including the coated fibers.

  • Patent number: 10914087
    Abstract: Ammunition boxes may be equipped with a cohesive and adhesive shell restraining overlay adapted to restrain ammunition shells in a stabilized position. The shell restraining overlay provides sufficient adhesiveness to restrain a housed ammunition shell at a desired shell position, but allows for relatively effortless shell release without creating excessive movement or noise. The stabilizing overlay also stabilizes the shells from inadvertent spillage from the ammunition box.
