  • Patent number: 11181011
    Abstract: A method of fabricating a composite material casing of varying thickness for a gas turbine includes using three-dimensional or multilayer weaving to make a fiber texture in the form of a strip; winding the fiber texture as a plurality of superposed layers onto a mandrel of profile corresponding to the profile of the casing to be fabricated, so as to obtain a fiber preform of shape corresponding to the shape of the casing to be fabricated; and densifying the fiber preform with a matrix. During winding of the fiber texture on the mandrel, a textile strip is interposed between the adjacent turns of the fiber texture, the textile strip presenting a width that is less than the width of the fiber texture and defining a retention zone of the casing.

  • Patent number: 9064995
    Abstract: A back-face protection sheet for a solar cell module exhibits excellent adhesion strength and tensile strength even under a high-temperature and high-humidity environment, by using a plastic film that has excellent characteristics such as electrical insulation characteristic, heat resistance, dimension stability, mechanical strength, weatherability, and water resistance, and using a two-part type lamination adhesive having excellent weatherability. The back-face protection sheet is made to have excellent adhesion strength and tensile strength for a long period of time, even under a high-temperature and high-humidity environment, by improving weatherability (hydrolysis resistance) as base material films, and giving weatherability (hydrolysis resistance) to the two-part type lamination adhesive to be used in pasting together the base material films.

    Abstract: A manufacturing method of artificial graphite sheet and a product thereof. The artificial graphite sheet manufactured by means of the manufacturing method can be rolled up to minimize the occupied space and facilitate transfer and delivery. The manufacturing method includes steps of: selecting graphite powder (granules) and polymer and mixing the graphite powder with polymer; heating, compounding and homogenizing the mixture to form a graphite (mixture) subassembly with a basic thickness; calendering the graphite subassembly to form a graphite (mixture) sheet assembly with a purposed thickness; thermostatically maturing the graphite sheet assembly and gradually cooling the graphite sheet assembly to room temperature to form a flexible sheet body; and rolling up the flexible sheet body into a roll form with a rolling apparatus. The manufacturing equipment and process of the artificial graphite sheet are simplified and the manufacturing time is shortened.
