  • Patent number: 10109478
    Abstract: A substrate is positioned in exposure to a plasma generation region within a plasma processing chamber. A first plasma is generated within the plasma generation region. The first plasma is configured to cause deposition of a film on the substrate until the film deposited on the substrate reaches a threshold film thickness. The substrate is then exposed to ultraviolet radiation to resolve defects within the film deposited on the substrate. The ultraviolet radiation can be supplied in-situ using either a second plasma configured to generate ultraviolet radiation or an ultraviolet irradiation device disposed in exposure to the plasma generation region. The ultraviolet radiation can also be supplied ex-situ by moving the substrate to an ultraviolet irradiation device separate from the plasma processing chamber. The substrate can be exposed to the ultraviolet radiation in a repeated manner to resolve defects within the deposited film as the film thickness increases.

  • Patent number: 9926454
    Abstract: Compositions, applications, coatings, processes of making and applying compositions and compositions for preventing dust buildup on plastic and wood surfaces such as on ceiling fan blades, portable fan blades, stand fan blades, window blinds, appliances, furniture, cabinet knobs, and drawer pulls. The compositions and coating prevent dust buildup by (1) dissipating static charges on the blades and (2) creating a very smooth blade surface that prevents dust particles getting “captured”. The coating can have a clear matte finish and contains an anti-static and high lubricity additive to deter the accumulation of dust. After applying the coating the dry time of the coatings by thin coat gravure rollers is approximately four minutes. When applied the coating can result in up to approximately 50% less dust buildup over a one week period of time.

    Abstract: A process is disclosed for using two polymeric bonding material layers to bond a device wafer and carrier wafer in a way that allows debonding to occur between the two layers under low-force conditions at room temperature. Optionally, a third layer is included at the interface between the two layers of polymeric bonding material to facilitate the debonding at this interface. This process can potentially improve bond line stability during backside processing of temporarily bonded wafers, simplify the preparation of bonded wafers by eliminating the need for specialized release layers, and reduce wafer cleaning time and chemical consumption after debonding.

The inorganic fiber heat-insulating sound-absorbing member is produced by applying an aqueous binder to inorganic fibers and heating the resulting inorganic fibers at 180-220° C. The aqueous binder contains 5.5-10 parts by mass of an ammonium salt of an inorganic acid per 100 parts by mass of the total of an acrylic resin that has an acid value of 350-850 mgKOH/g and a crosslinking agent that contains at least one alkanol amine. The ratio of the total mole number of hydroxy groups, amino groups and imino groups in the crosslinking agent relative to the mole number of carboxyl groups in the acrylic resin is 0.8-1.5. The pH of the aqueous binder is adjusted to 5.0-8.0 by a basic compound.

  • Patent number: 8597777
    Abstract: The transparent fire-resistant glazing has at least two glass or glass ceramic panes with a gap between them, which is filled with a UV-cured material. It is made by curing a UV-curable material filling the gap with UV radiation. The UV-curable material includes polymerizable components, namely a monomer with acrylate functionality and an oligomer, and at least one bromine-containing flame retardant. The fire retardant can be a polybrominated diphenyl ether, a brominated alcohol, or a polybrominated cycloalkane, and/or a mixtures thereof. The glazing is made by a process in which the panes are cleaned and masked to form the gap between them, the UV-curable material is filled into the gap and then cured with the UV radiation.

  • Publication number: 20130273293
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for reinforcing a glass of a touch panel and a reinforcement structure thereof. The method provides at least one protective film and at least one glass substrate. One side of the glass substrate is adhered to one side of the protective film. The glass substrate adhered with the protective film is dipped in an adhesive reservoir. The glass substrate adhered with the protective film is taken out of the adhesive reservoir. After the adhesive is hardened, a reinforcement layer is formed on the other side and the periphery of the glass substrate. The present invention makes the surface of the glass to be more flat with an increased strength.
