    Abstract: A robotic electrostatic painting system includes a barrier formed from an electrical insulating material and disposed between adjacent reservoirs for holding a conductive paint used in an electrostatic painting operation. The barrier is shaped and dimensioned with a central plate and upper and lower flanges to block every straight line path between the reservoirs to electrostatically separate the reservoirs and prevent the formation of a ground path or short circuit when there is a voltage difference between the reservoirs. The electrostatic separation of the reservoirs further prevents deterioration of conductive components of the robotic electrostatic painting system.

    Abstract: An interlayer film for a laminated glass includes a first layer, a second layer laminated on one face of the first layer. Each of the first layer and the second layer contains a polyvinyl acetal resin and a plasticizer. The hydroxyl content of the polyvinyl acetal resin in the first layer is lower than the hydroxyl content of the polyvinyl acetal resin in the second layer. The difference between the hydroxyl content of the polyvinyl acetal resin in the first layer and the hydroxyl content of the polyvinyl acetal resin in the second layer is at most 9.2 mol %. If the difference in the content is higher than 8.5 mol % and at most 9.2 mol %, a degree of acetylation of the polyvinyl acetal resin of the polyvinyl acetal resin in the first layer is at most 8 mol %.

    Abstract: A method is disclosed herein for treating a polymeric surface to resist non-specific binding of biomolecules and attachment of cells. The method includes the steps of: imparting a charge to the polymeric surface to produce a charged surface; exposing the charged surface to a nitrogen-rich polymer to form a polymerized surface; exposing the polymerized surface to an oxidized polysaccharide to form an aldehyde surface; and exposing the aldehyde surface to a reducing agent. Advantageously, a method is provided which produces surfaces that resist non-specific protein binding and cell attachment and that avoids the use of photochemical reactions or prior art specially designed compounds.

    Abstract: Disclosed herein are substrates which have been dry coated with a layered material. Generally, a layered material precursor composition is mixed with a milling medium so that the milling medium is coated with the layered material. The substrate is then contacted with the coated milling medium. The layered material on the milling medium transfers to the substrate to form a coating on the substrate. In particular, conductive films can be formed on a substrate without the need for additives such as a surfactant or a polymeric binder.
