    Abstract: A composite structure with high pressure resistance that is suitable for a flow channel is produced by reducing the number of components while maintaining the excellent chemical resistance and high stress tolerance inherent to a glass substrate and a resin substrate. A glass substrate surface is modified with a hydrolyzable silicon compound, and the glass substrate is brought into contact with the resin substrate. Subsequently, the contact surface between the glass substrate and the resin substrate is heated to a temperature from the glass transition temperature to the pyrolysis temperature of the resin substrate, eliminating gaps between the glass substrate and the resin substrate to bring them into close contact with each other, and causing chemical binding or anchor effects between the glass substrate and the resin substrate via the hydrolyzable silicon compound. Thus, the glass substrate and the resin substrate are firmly fixed to each other.

  • Patent number: 10758938
    Abstract: An inside surface of a hose for use with liquid-cooled cooling plate assemblies and other applications that contain copper (Cu) components is pre-treated with a hydrophobic coating to reduce depletion of a copper corrosion inhibitor (e.g., benzotriazole (BTA)) dissolved in a liquid coolant (e.g., deionized water) that flows through the hose. Exemplary hydrophobic coatings include, but are not limited to, polydialkylsiloxanes such as polydimethylsiloxanes. In one embodiment, a multilayer hose is immersed in a solution containing hydrophobizing siloxane monomers dissolved in a solvent. The coated multilayer hose is then dried to evaporate the solvent. As the solvent evaporates, the siloxane monomers bind together to form the hydrophobic coating. In some embodiments, one or more hoses each provided with a hydrophobic coating interconnect liquid-coolant cooling system components (e.g.

  • Patent number: 10759918
    Abstract: Methods are provided for surface-modifying a rubber vulcanizate or a thermoplastic elastomer. The methods allow these rubber vulcanizate or thermoplastic elastomer objects to have a lubricating surface layer chemically fixed thereon, instead of having a resin coating which has drawbacks such as a reduction in lubricity due to e.g. separation or peeling of the coating during movement within a vessel or tract. The present invention relates to a method for surface-modifying an object made of a rubber vulcanizate or a thermoplastic elastomer, the method including: step 1 of forming polymerization initiation points on a surface of the object; and step 2 of radically polymerizing a monomer starting from the polymerization initiation points by irradiation with ultraviolet light having a wavelength of 300 to 400 nm in the presence of an alkali metal salt to grow polymer chains on the surface of the object.

  • Patent number: 10738199
    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: 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.
