  • Publication number: 20150148459
    Abstract: The deposition of graphene is accomplished by various techniques that result in a change of the graphene's solubility in the liquid medium. The solubility change enables the deposition of the graphene onto the substrate. Once the graphene is deposited onto the substrate, the at least partially coated substrate may be separated from the liquid medium. The substrates may then serve as a carrier to deliver the graphene to a desired application.

  • Publication number: 20130074718
    Abstract: A laser-engraveable flexographic printing precursor or patternable element comprises a laser-engraveable layer having two orthogonal dimensions. This laser-engraveable layer comprises one or more elastomeric resins and non-metallic fibers that are oriented in the laser-engraveable layer predominantly in one of its two orthogonal dimensions. The non-metallic fibers have an average length of at least 0.1 mm and an average diameter of at least 1 ?m. The oriented non-metallic fibers reduce curl and shrinkage in the precursor and improve print quality and press life.

  • Publication number: 20130064708
    Abstract: A method for injection molding or extrusion of cemented carbide or cermet parts uses a binder system, including 20-70 wt-% olefinic polymer, 30-80 wt-% wax. The olefinic polymer is a co-polymer of polyethylene and poly(alpha-olefin). By using such a binder system, a tougher material behavior of the green body and a lower temperature during the injection molding or extrusion is achieved.
