    Abstract: During the production of reinforced and non-reinforced components (45) made of plastic, the plastic must be solidified after the molding. For this purpose, energy must be supplied to the component (45) to be produced. This has heretofore been performed by heating the mold (47) for producing the component (45). The energy introduction into the component (45) to be produced is thus limited, which results in long solidification times of the plastic, above all in the case of larger and more voluminous components (45). The invention provides supplying the energy for solidifying the plastic of the component (45) to the plastic to be solidified by at least one optical fiber (51) in the component (45) to be produced. The solidification of the plastic can be accelerated by the direct energy introduction into the component (45) to be produced.

  • Patent number: 8598254
    Abstract: Aqueous liquid and moisture vapor are added to water absorbent resin powder so that particles of the water absorbent resin powder are bound. Supplying the aqueous liquid and moisture vapor to the water absorbent resin powder reduces the amount of particles that remain unbound (ungranulated) and increases the concentration of the water absorbent resin bound particles to provide improved drying efficiency and to obtain particulate water absorbent resin having excellent properties even when the bound particles are highly concentrated. The present invention provides (i) a method for binding water absorbent resin and (ii) a method for producing particulate water absorbent resin including the step of binding particles of water absorbent resin powder.

  • Publication number: 20130260150
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to ground expanded graphite agglomerate compositions, methods for making such agglomerates, their use as conductive additive, and conductive composites including such ground expanded graphite agglomerates. The disclosure also pertains to methods for making such composites and the use of such composites in preparing thermally conductive materials. The agglomerates may be characterized by a certain softness allowing the agglomerates to dissolve, e.g., through shear forces applied during compounding, thereby leading to an improved feedability and a highly homogenous distribution of the expanded graphite material in the composite matrix.

  • Patent number: 8501835
    Abstract: An ink composition for roll printing is provided. The ink composition uses a solvent system having an evaporation rate (Vt) of at least 0.1 mg/cm2·min and an absorption rate (St) into a blanket of less than 3.412 mg/cm2·min. The use of the highly volatile solvent system can minimize swelling of the blanket without impairing the dispersibility of a pigment in the ink composition. Therefore, the uniformity of a pattern formed using the ink composition can be maintained and the formation of defects by the solvent system can be minimized.
