  • Patent number: 10668501
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for texturing surfaces providing the latter with superhydrophobic, superoleophobic, superhydrophilic or even superoleophilic properties. This process comprises i) a step of texturing the surface (via the deposition of nanoparticles of different sizes); ii) a step of curing the surface thus textured (with a curing agent); and, optionally, iii) a step of modifying the properties of the surface with perfluorinated (and therefore hydrophobic) molecules. This process is suitable, inter alia, for treating transparent and/or heat-sensitive materials and surfaces. Specifically, none of the steps of the process use a temperature higher than 100° C. Thus, the process of the invention is particularly suitable for treating transparent surfaces composed of non-mineral materials, such as polycarbonate for example, as it will affect neither their transparency nor their optical properties.

  • Patent number: 10358587
    Abstract: A composition with latent adhesion, fuel cell stack with a bipolar plate assembly with latent adhesion and a method of assembling a fuel cell stack with a seal that has latent adhesion such that reactant or coolant leakage through the seal is reduced. Bipolar plates within the stack include reactant channels and coolant channels that are fluidly coupled to inlet and outlet flowpaths, all of which are formed within a coolant-engaging or reactant-engaging surface of the plate. One or more thin or low aspect-ratio seals are formed on a metal bead that is integrally formed on a surface of the plate and is used to help reduce leakage by maintaining fluid isolation of the reactants and coolant as they flow through their respective channels and flowpaths that are defined between adjacently placed plates.

  • Patent number: 10246594
    Abstract: A corrosion-resistant coating on an aluminum-containing substrate such as an aluminum substrate, an aluminum alloy substrate (e.g., AA 2024, AA 6061, or AA7075), or other aluminum-containing substrate includes a corrosion inhibitor-incorporated Zn—Al layered double hydroxide (LDH) layer and a sol-gel layer. A zinc salt and a corrosion inhibitor (e.g., a salt of an oxyanion of a transition metal such as a vanadate) is dissolved to form a zinc-corrosion inhibitor solution, and the substrate is immersed in or otherwise contacted with the solution to form the corrosion inhibitor-incorporated Zn—Al LDH layer on the substrate. A sol-gel composition is applied on the corrosion inhibitor-incorporated Zn—Al LDH layer of the substrate to form a sol-gel layer, and the sol-gel layer is cured.

  • Patent number: 10246593
    Abstract: A Zn—Al layered double hydroxide (LDH) composition is added to a solution including a corrosion inhibitor and stirred, and a precipitate of the solution is collected, washed, and dried to form a corrosion inhibiting material (CIM), in which the LDH composition is intercalated with the corrosion inhibitor. An inorganic CIM and/or an organic CIM may be formed. The organic CIM may be added to a sol-gel composition to form an organic CIM-containing sol-gel composition, and the inorganic CIM may be added to a sol-gel composition to form an inorganic CIM-containing sol-gel composition. Further, the organic CIM-containing sol-gel composition may be applied on a substrate (e.g., an aluminum alloy substrate) to form an organic CIM-containing sol-gel layer and cured by ultraviolet (UV) radiation, the inorganic CIM-containing sol-gel composition may be applied on the substrate to form an inorganic CIM-containing sol-gel layer and cured by UV radiation, and the sol-gel layers may be thermally cured.
