  • Patent number: 9905450
    Abstract: Provided is a substrate for processing a wafer. The present invention can provide a substrate having excellent heat resistance and dimensional stability. The present invention can provide a substrate that has excellent stress relaxation properties, and therefore can prevent a wafer from being destroyed due to residual stress. Also, the present invention can provide a substrate that can prevent a wafer from being damaged or fried off due to a non-uniformly applied pressure during the wafer processing process, and that exhibits excellent cuttability. For these reasons, the substrate can be useful as a sheet for processing a wafer in various wafer preparation processes such as dicing, back-grinding, and picking-up.

    Abstract: The invention described herein relates to a therapeutic, moisturizing coating composition for elastomeric articles which is applied directly onto the skin-contacting surface of the article as part of the manufacturing process. The coating composition is thermally stable and subsequently hydrates when contacted with a moisturized skin surface to convert into a liquid “lotion” form during wearing of the article. The coating composition provides therapeutic benefits to the wearer's skin as a result of wearing the article, such as improved skin moisturization, softness of feel, improved skin elasticity and firmness, and reduced redness and irritation. The invention is particularly useful in medical gloves, including examination and surgical gloves.

    Abstract: A touch panel is formed by firstly forming a film layer on a first plate, and next, sequentially forming a buffer layer on the film layer, forming a sensing layer on the buffer layer, forming a second plate on the sensing layer. After the foregoing formation procedures, the first plate is removed from the film layer. Next, a cover is attached to the film layer. In this way, the film layer is located between the cover and the buffer layer. Finally, the second plate is removed from the sensing layer, so as to form a touch panel with the features of light weight, thin thickness and low costs.

  • Patent number: 8734933
    Abstract: A laminate film including a first core polylactic acid layer, a coating receiving-layer of polylactic acid, and coated on one side of the coating receiving-layer with PVOH, EVOH, a blend of crosslinked EVOH/PVOH, vinyl alcohol-vinylamine (PVAm) copolymer, anionic carboxylated styrene-butadiene copolymer (SBR) emulsion, or blends thereof. This coating may be applied after the machine-direction orientation step and dried and oriented in a transverse direction orientation oven if in-line coating is desired; or applied to the film in an off-line coating method and dried in an air flotation oven. The dried coating layer can be metallized. This laminate film exhibits excellent gas and moisture barrier properties, appearance, and metal adhesion. It may also optionally include a heat sealable or winding improving layer on the side opposite the coating receiving-layer of the core layer.

  • Patent number: 8722178
    Abstract: A syringe stopper that is suitable for use in syringes without silicone oil or other liquid lubricants. The invention provides a low friction barrier between an elastomeric stopper material and a therapeutic in the syringe. The barrier may inhibit materials from leaching from the elastomer material or from extraction of compounds from medicants by the elastomer. A process is also described that allows for molding thin barrier layers while allowing adequate bonding with the elastomer.
