  • Publication number: 20130298484
    Abstract: A removable inspection panel for use with a projectile containment assembly in a shoot house or on a firing range where the firing of live ammunition is carried out is provided. The inspection panel is removably attached to a supporting structure between the supporting structure and a projectile containment assembly. The inspection panel is removable from the top of the supporting structure, for example, for periodic inspection of the condition of the inspection panel. Any detectable damage to the surface of the inspection panel facing the projectile containment assembly indicates immanent failure of the projectile containment assembly.

  • Publication number: 20130288033
    Abstract: A laser-engraveable composition comprises one or more elastomeric rubbers including at least 10 parts of one or more non-CLCB EPDM elastomeric rubbers, based on parts per hundred of the total weight of elastomeric rubbers (phr). The laser-engraveable composition further comprises 2-30 phr of a near-infrared radiation absorber and optionally 1-80 phr of an inorganic, non-infrared radiation absorber filler, as well as a vulcanizing composition that comprises a mixture of at least two peroxides. A first peroxide has a t90 value of 1-6 minutes as measured at 160° C., and a second peroxide has a t90 value of 8-40 minutes as measured at 160° C. This laser-engraveable composition can be used to form a laser-engraveable layer and to form various flexographic printing precursors.

  • Publication number: 20130216838
    Abstract: This invention is related to compositions that can be used to protect surfaces, such as those found on bowling lanes (both synthetic and wood). The compositions are low viscosity and contain little to no VOCs (volatile organic compounds). In one embodiment, the flowable compositions are 100% solids, while in another embodiment, they are solvent-borne compositions that only include VOC-exempt solvents. Regardless of the embodiment, the compositions can be cured via UV LED light to yield scratch, abrasion, and impact resistant coatings.
