  • Patent number: 8337626
    Abstract: A method of removal of beryllium contamination from an article is disclosed. The method typically involves dissolving polyisobutylene in a solvent such as hexane to form a tackifier solution, soaking the substrate in the tackifier to produce a preform, and then drying the preform to produce the cleaning medium. The cleaning media are typically used dry, without any liquid cleaning agent to rub the surface of the article and remove the beryllium contamination below a non-detect level. In some embodiments no detectible residue is transferred from the cleaning wipe to the article as a result of the cleaning process.

  • Patent number: 6914019
    Abstract: A clothing element includes a carrier of a form that conforms to a portion of a body surface and an adherent coating made of titanium or of a titanium alloy and/or titanium compound located on one side of the carrier facing the body surface. The adherent coating increases the physical performance and the physical wellness of a body by for example, positively influencing muscle contractility and vasoactivity, and counteracting signs of fatigue and formation of sweat.

  • Publication number: 20030186602
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a material for shielding electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) between a, electrical conductor or bundle of conductors and the environment. The material comprises a heat-shrinkable woven fabric coated with a conductive material. Specifically, the material can be used as a jacket heat-shrinkable to fit with any sized wire, cable, data or signal line, antenna, or other electrical conductor. A method of making the material is also discussed. In the method, a heat-shrinkable woven fabric is coated with a conductive slurry. When the slurry is dried, a conductive material is deposited on the surface of the heat-shrinkable woven fabric.
