  • Patent number: 10688756
    Abstract: A cover element for a foldable electronic device that includes a foldable glass element, first and second primary surfaces, and a compressive stress region extending from the first primary surface to a first depth that is defined by a stress ?I of at least about 100 MPa in compression at the first primary surface. The device also includes a polymeric layer disposed over the first primary surface. The glass element has a stress profile such that when the glass element is bent to a target bend radius of from 1 mm to 20 mm, to induce a bending stress ?B at the first primary surface in tension, ?I+?B<400 MPa (in tension). Further, the cover element can withstand a pen drop height of at least 1.5 times that of a control pen drop height of the cover element without the layer according to a Drop Test 1.

  • Patent number: 10589565
    Abstract: A magnetic erasable writable material for large format applications is disclosed, and includes a cast polyvinylchloride film with a mount surface opposite an etched receiver surface. Also incorporated is a transparent polyester film that has a marking side with a hardness exceeding approximately shore D 79 and an opposite seal side, hermetically laminated to the receiver surface. The marking side includes a clear superstrate that has a hardness exceeding approximately shore D 90, which is applied to the marking side of the polyester film to lower surface energy below about 24 millinewtons per meter. The receiver surface is treated to have a surface energy exceeding about 45 millinewtons per meter, to enable improved adherence of printed and preformed graphic elements, which are encapsulated when laminated between the PET film and receiver surface. The superstrate includes a perfluoropolyether, a polyurethane, an acrylated polyurethane, and/or an acrylate resin to harden the material.
