  • Publication number: 20090266788
    Abstract: The invention discloses a method for fabricating a conductive pattern on a flexible substrate. A flexible substrate having a conductive layer thereon is provided. A protective ink is screen printed on the conductive layer, wherein a portion of the conductive layer is exposed through the protective ink. The exposed portion of the conductive layer is removed by etching using the protective ink as a mask. The protective ink is then removed, thus providing a conductive pattern with a minimum line width of not greater than 150 ?m. The invention also discloses a composition for the protective ink.

  • Patent number: 7495036
    Abstract: A clear personal care or other aqueous gel is formed from dry polymer particles which are free of materials which render the gel cloudy and which are made by reverse phase emulsion polymerisation. The polymerisation process involves distilling water from the emulsion in the presence of sufficient non-aqueous liquid to prevent breakage of the emulsion and then washing the polymer particles with isopropanol or other suitable solvent and evaporating the solvent.
