  • Patent number: 10919264
    Abstract: An adhesive sheet comprising a hot-melt adhesive layer. The hot-melt type adhesive layer comprises a modified polymer (A) to which a cross-linkable group is bonded and a polyolefin (B). The adhesive sheet can adhere to various adherends and the adhesive becomes less likely to squeeze out from an adherend in thermal fusion bonding and sealing of the adherend. In a laminate comprising the adhesive sheet the adhesive layer does not squeeze out from the adherend without being affected by the material of the adherend.

  • Publication number: 20130323291
    Abstract: A hydrophilic copolymer is designed and synthesized by copolymerization of an acidic monomer and a second hydrophilic monomer. The copolymer is non-thrombogenic, hydrophilic and incorporates reactive functional groups. The copolymer can then be covalently attached to a primer/base coat through its functional groups, to form a durable lubricious coating on medical devices. A coating formed of the polymer on a surface is non-thrombogenic and non-cytotoxic. The coating shows good stability in gamma ray, e-beam and ethylene oxide sterilization.

  • Patent number: 8530055
    Abstract: The ceramic green sheet is formed by molding and drying “a ceramic slurry containing a ceramic powder, an unreacted portion of an isocyanate, an unreacted portion of a polyol, a urethane resin that is produced by mixing isocyanate and polyol and serves as an organic binder, and a solvent”, the ceramic slurry being prepared by mixing the ceramic powder, the isocyanate, the polyol, and the solvent. A thin sheet-like molded body is formed by printing a molded body of a paste, which is prepared by mixing a ceramic powder, an organic binder that is a resin not containing a hydroxyl group, and a solvent, on the ceramic green sheet, and by drying the resultant. A dry shrinkage percentage of the ceramic green sheet upon forming the thin sheet-like molded body thereon can significantly be reduced.
