  • Patent number: 6777085
    Abstract: Particles are encapsulated with a layer or sequence of layers. The particles can be flakes and the layers can form an optical interference stack for use as an optically variable pigment, among other purposes. In a particular embodiment a highly reflective metal layer is deposited around a glass flake with specular surfaces. The particles can be produced using a variety of deposition systems. In a particular embodiment, a downstream plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition system achieves high deposition rates while avoiding contamination of the plasma source with deposition products.

  • Publication number: 20040076842
    Abstract: A coating composition containing a zirconium compound and a silicon compound is applied on a conductor 1 and baked to develop a ceramic insulating coating 2. A bonding agent made by dissolving a polyamide resin or a polyimide resin into an organic agent is then applied on the ceramic insulating coating 2 and baked to develop a fusible coating 3. This produces a self-fusible ceramic insulation coated wire which can retain the favorable properties of coil at high temperatures. Also, it can be used as windings such as high-power loudspeaker voice coils.

  • Patent number: 6689473
    Abstract: A surface coating composition for providing a self-assembling monolayer, in stable form, on a material surface or at a suitable interface, as well as a method of preparing such a composition and a method of using such a composition to coat a surface, such as the surface of an implantable medical device, in order to provide the surface with desirable properties. The method provides the covalent attachment of a SAM to a surface in a manner that substantially retains or improves the characteristics and/or performance of both the SAM and the surface itself. Covalent attachment is accomplished by the use of one or more latent reactive groups, e.g., provided by either the surface and/or by the SAM-forming molecules themselves.

  • Patent number: 6586098
    Abstract: A flake-based pigment is provided having improved specular reflectance characteristics in the visible wavelength range. The flake-based pigment has a plurality of composite reflective flakes each formed of a support layer and a reflector layer on one or both opposing sides of the support layer. This flake structure exhibits a uniaxial compressive strength much greater than a corresponding uniaxial tensile strength. The structure of the flakes provides the benefits of rigidity and brittle fracture during manufacture and application processes, which ultimately provides favorable planar and specular reflectance characteristics to the pigment in the visible wavelength range. A variety of outer coating layers can be formed around the composite reflective flakes, such as various dielectric and/or absorber layers, to produce desired optical characteristics in the pigment.
