  • Patent number: 9985269
    Abstract: Disclosed is a highly heat-resistant film for electrode terminals. The heat-resistant film includes a polymer layer as a central substrate to be sealably interposed between a pouch and electrode terminals. The polymer layer is formed of a mixture of (a) at least one polymer selected from the group consisting of an ethylene-norbornene copolymer and a polymethylpentene with (b) a polypropylene resin. Preferably, the polypropylene resin is highly heat resistant and the mixture has a weight ratio of 1.9 to 5:5. The heat-resistant film simultaneously meets requirements in terms of thermal adhesiveness and high temperature dimensional stability, which are contradictory to each other in conventional films for electrode terminals of secondary batteries. In addition, the heat-resistant film has enhanced electrolyte resistance to improve the durability of a secondary battery.

  • Patent number: 9944891
    Abstract: An alcoholic beverage is aged in a wooden barrel after the barrel is covered by a film having an oxygen transmission rate of at least 50 cc/m2/day and an ethanol transmission rate of less than 30 g/m2/day. The beverage acquires one or more specific flavor components in an amount of 50%, 75%, or 100% relative to amounts of one or more of the same flavor components in a control alcoholic beverage aged in a wooden barrel without the film thereon. Covering the barrel with the film reduces the angels' share evaporative loss, while allowing the beverage to develop desirable flavor components during aging. In another embodiment, the process reduces angels' share evaporative loss while achieving organoleptics indistinguishable from a control.
