  • Patent number: 8637587
    Abstract: Release agents with increased affinity toward nano-imprint lithography template surfaces interact strongly with the template during separation of the template from the solidified resist in a nano-imprint lithography process. The strong interaction between the surfactant and the template surface reduces the amount of surfactant pulled off the template surface during separation of a patterned layer from the template in an imprint lithography cycle. Maintaining more surfactant associated with the surface of the template after the separation of the patterned layer from the template may reduce the amount of surfactant needed in a liquid resist to achieve suitable release of the solidified resist from the template during an imprint lithography process. Strong association of the release agent with the surface of the template facilitates the formation of ultra-thin residual layers and dense fine features in nano-imprint lithography.

  • Publication number: 20120199273
    Abstract: This disclosure is directed to a method of preparing a continuous elastomeric length for a pneumatic innerliner comprising providing a continuous elastomeric length comprising a plasticizer and an elastomer; heating the continuous elastomeric length for a residence time at a temperature no higher than 15° C. above the flash point of the plasticizer; and cooling the length to form a heat-treated continuous elastomeric length having a level of plasticizer less than the level of plasticizer in the continuous elastomeric length. In certain embodiments, the heat-treated continuous elastomeric length or laminate comprising the heat-treated continuous length can be first cut to form a pneumatic innerliner unit, and splicing the pneumatic innerliner unit to itself to form a pneumatic innerliner. The heat-treated continuous elastomeric length or laminate comprising the heat-treated continuous length can be cut into the form of a sleeve to form a pneumatic innerliner sleeve, and the sleeve incorporated into a tire.

  • Publication number: 20120190765
    Abstract: Curable solid inks which are solid at room temperature and molten at an elevated temperature at which the molten ink is applied to a substrate. In particular, the curable solid inks of the present embodiments retain the advantages of handling, safety, and print quality usually associated with conventional curable solid phase change inks but have replaced the petroleum-based materials generally used in the conventional inks with renewable “green” materials to provide a robust and environmentally-friendly curable solid ink.

  • Patent number: 8207240
    Abstract: A method to reduce or minimize the reduction in molecular weight of a stent during processing is disclosed. The stent has a scaffolding including a polymer formulation comprising PLLA and polymandelide. The polymandelide reduces the molecular weight drop during processing, particularly during sterilization. The stent scaffolding can further include one or more additional stabilizing agents that additionally reduce the molecular weight drop during processing.

    Abstract: Disclosed is a photosensitive resin composition comprising an alkali-soluble resin, wherein the dissolution rate of the alkali-soluble resin in an aqueous sodium carbonate solution is not less than 0.04 ?m/sec. When a photosensitive layer having a thickness of 30 ?m is formed by applying the photosensitive resin composition onto a base and removing the solvent by heating, and thus-obtained photosensitive layer is irradiated with an active ray of 1000 mJ/cm2 or less, the dissolution rate of the portion irradiated with the active ray in the photosensitive layer made of the photosensitive resin composition is not less than 0.22 ?m/sec and the film residual rate of the portion not irradiated with the active ray is not less than 90%.

  • Patent number: 8178594
    Abstract: An antioxidant combined with UHMWPE prior to subjecting the UHMWPE to crosslinking irradiation. In one exemplary embodiment, the antioxidant is tocopherol. After the antioxidant is combined with the UHMWPE, the resulting blend may be formed into slabs, bar stock, and/or incorporated into a substrate, such as a metal, for example. The resulting product may then be subjected to crosslinking irradiation. In one exemplary embodiment, the UHMWPE blend is preheated prior to subjecting the same to crosslinking irradiation. Once irradiated, the UHMWPE blended product may be machined, packaged, and sterilized in accordance with conventional techniques.
