  • Patent number: 9803072
    Abstract: Disclosed are a resin composition and a molded article using the same. The resin composition may be obtained by mixing a thermoplastic vulcanizate and a polyethylene resin with a thermoplastic olefin resin, a polypropylene resin, an inorganic filler and a thermoplastic rubber, and in particular, the thermoplastic vulcanizate and the polyethylene resin may be obtained from biologically obtainable materials (biomass). Thus, the resin composition may be environmentally-friendly because it does not emit offensive odor of harmful compounds due to decreased generation of carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds unlike petroleum-based materials. Further, superior mechanical properties such as elongation, hardness, strength, etc. that cannot be achieved only with conventional biodegradable resin may be ensured, and, at the same time, processability and moldability may be improved.

  • Patent number: 8999507
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for applying a liquid UV-curable primer sealant to natural stone tiles and related articles followed immediately by the exposure to a requisite amount of low intensity UVA-type UV radiation to partially cure the primer sealant. The partial curing, or pre-setting, of the primer sealant enables control of the ultimate depth of penetration of the primer sealer into the natural stone tiles and natural stone articles of which many examples are quite porous. Because the low level UV irradiation is instantaneous after the primer sealant application the level of primer sealant penetration into the natural stone surface is regulated. The pre-curing of the primer sealant is conducted to intentionally solidify or immobilize the sealant that has actually penetrated into the natural stone surface. The uppermost layers of the primer sealant are left in a semi-liquid or uncured state to allow for wetting and intermingling by the top sealant once it is applied.

    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.
