  • Patent number: 9012559
    Abstract: Provided is a heat curable adhesive that can strongly bond a base material formed of a crystalline polyester resin, can freely regulate the thickness of an adhesive layer, has excellent chemical resistance, and, at the same time, has excellent storage stability. Furthermore, provided is a resin laminated-type IC card, in which a liquid heat curable adhesive of which use has been difficult in the past can be used, and the liquid heat curable adhesive can be coated with a good accuracy by a printing method without the need to perform molding into a hot-melt sheet to bond a base material formed of a crystalline polyester resin. Accordingly, the resin laminated-type IC card can have a high degree of freedom in design of the thickness of an IC card. The heat curable adhesive comprises (a) a hydroxyl group-containing non-crystalline polyester resin, (b) a resin containing a carboxylic acid anhydride, and (c) a solvent for dissolving (a) the hydroxyl group-containing non-crystalline polyester resin.

  • Patent number: 8999468
    Abstract: A transparent article includes a continuous polyester matrix having at least one incompatible filler dispersed therein. The incompatible filler provides domains in the polyester matrix, each domain having a particular dimension, thus providing a range of dimensions for the domains in the article. To create haze, the dimensions are within the range of from about 380 nm to about 720 nm. Once the range of dimensions is determined, a light absorbent composition can be found which absorbs light at a range of wavelengths that at least substantially covers the range of dimensions of the domains. In doing so, it has been found that the haze of the article can be substantially masked. Method for producing the article and for masking the haze are also provided.
