  • Patent number: 9018514
    Abstract: A cooling sheet for photovoltaic modules, a method of manufacturing the same, a backsheet for photovoltaic modules, a method of manufacturing the same, and a photovoltaic module are provided. The cooling sheet for photovoltaic modules which includes a resin layer can be prepared by coating or impregnating one surface of a porous substrate with a super-absorbent polymer (SAP) containing a fluid. Here, the resin layer includes the fluid-containing SAP which is formed on one surface of the porous substrate or impregnated with the porous substrate. When the cooling sheet for photovoltaic modules is attached to the outside of the weather-resistant substrate to prepare the backsheet for photovoltaic modules, it is possible to suppress an increase in power generation temperature of a photoelectric cell by evaporation of the fluid, for example water, included in the SAP, thereby improving the power generation efficiency of the photovoltaic module.

  • Patent number: 8569189
    Abstract: The invention relates to an electronic textile comprising a textile substrate having a substrate electrode, and an electronic component having a component electrode. The component electrode is in electrically conductive contact with the substrate electrode via a coupling layer having a directionally dependent conductance so as to preferentially allow an electrical current to flow between the substrate electrode and the component electrode. As the coupling layer does not have to be patterned to prevent the occurrence of parasitic electrical currents, the electrically conductive contact between the substrate electrode and the component electrode has an improved reliability.

  • Patent number: 6716777
    Abstract: A fabric structure is constructed having a fabric base sheet, a viscidity layer, a polymeric back layer, and a protective layer. The polymeric back layer is prepared from SBC (styrenic block copolymer) for the advantage of low specific gravity and preventing the drawback of PVC or the like that pollutes the environment when disposed off. The protective layer is prepared from PU series or modified SBC (styrenic block copolymer) series agent. When the fabric structure used to make a bag, the front surface of the fabric base sheet is disposed outside the bag and the surface of the protective layer is disposed inside the bag.

  • Patent number: 6660667
    Abstract: A coating composition for fabrics includes wetted microspheres containing a phase change material dispersed throughout a polymer binder, a surfactant, a dispersant, an antifoam agent and a thickener. Preferred phase change materials include paraffinic hydrocarbons. The microspheres may be microencapsulated. To prepare the coating composition, microspheres containing phase change material are wetted and dispersed in a dispersion in a water solution containing a surfactant, a dispersant, an antifoam agent and a polymer mixture. The coating is then applied to a fabric. In an alternative embodiment, an extensible fabric is coated with an extensible binder containing microencapsulated phase change material to form an extensible, coated fabric. The coated fabric is optionally flocked. The coated fabrics are manufactured using transfer techniques.

  • Patent number: 6605340
    Abstract: To ensure that a camouflage structure will not lose its effectiveness even in changing temperatures (day/night, sunshine/clouds) when protecting against reconnaissance in the IR range, the camouflage structure features varying emissivity tendencies in the atmospheric windows II (3-5 um) and III (8-14 um). In other words, the emissivity in the IR range is not constant and at a certain level, but it has an increasing or decreasing tendency in at least one selected spectral range.

  • Patent number: 6586351
    Abstract: A stab-resisting material includes a carrier coated with solid particles, which is provided on a packet of fabrics, in which the coating on the carrier includes abrasive particles having a diameter of 0.1-3 mm, and in which the packet of fabrics is thicker than 1.5 mm. The abrasive particles may be provided on the carrier by an adhesive, which forms an elastic film after curing. In particular, a fabric made of Aramid or Nylon fibres may be used as the carrier material. The preferred adhesive is a bituminous adhesive or an adhesive with a base of polyurethane. This material is used in particular in protective clothing.

  • Patent number: 6576574
    Abstract: This invention relates to novel airbag coating compositions and systems comprising pre-expanded or non-expandable microspheres that provide effective insulation for the target airbag fabric during exothermic inflation. The inventive airbag fabrics are either pre-calendered prior to application of this composition or are coated through a gap (floating) knife method with such heat-expandable microsphere-containing compositions. The coated airbag fabrics and cushions may then be heated to evaporate the solvent within the coating composition. The resultant fabric thus exhibits the presence of the microsphere constituents of the coating compositions both within the interstices between the individual yarns of the fabric and over the raised yarns of the fabric.
