  • Patent number: 10357439
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for protecting the skin against UV rays, using two cosmetic compositions for protecting against UV rays, the sun protection indices of which are different from each other, this method consisting in applying to the skin, before or during exposure to sunlight, a first composition having a certain sun protection index, and then in applying, during exposure to sunlight, onto the residual deposit of the first composition, the second cosmetic composition having a sun protection index lower than that of the first composition. This method advantageously makes it possible to not reapply the first composition, but to use a second product that is much more pleasant to use, while at the same time obtaining the level of protection afforded by the deposit of the initial first composition.

  • Patent number: 9638166
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of manufacturing a wind turbine blade having a first member with a first joining surface and a second member with a second joining surface. The method includes applying at least one resin barrier to one or both of the joining surfaces, and subsequently locating the first and the second members adjacent each other so that they are joined by the at least one resin barrier. Hereby at least one cavity is formed between the first and second joining surfaces, which cavity is delimited by the at least one resin barrier. Subsequently resin is filled into the at least one cavity, and the resin is cured. The first member may be a blade shell, and the second member may be a blade spar.

    Abstract: An objective of the present invention is to provide a curable silicone composition of the present invention exhibiting superior adhesive properties with respect to a poor-adhesive resin such as PPS, even if the composition is cured at a relatively low temperature for a short period. The aforementioned objective of the present invention is achieved by a curable silicone composition comprising: (A) an organopolysiloxane having at least two alkenyl groups in a molecule, (B) an organopolysiloxane having at least two silicon-bonded hydrogen atoms in a molecule, (C) a hydrosilylation-reaction catalyst, and (D) an acid anhydride having an alkoxy group bonding to a silicon atom or an alkoxyalkoxy group bonding to a silicon atom.

  • Patent number: 8604150
    Abstract: The present invention has an object to provide a curable composition for transfer materials. The curable composition is applicable to a UV nanoimprint process capable of forming micropatterns with high throughput, is applicable to a thermal nanoimprint process in some cases, and is capable of forming a micropattern having high selectivity on etching rates regarding a fluorine-based gas and an oxygen gas. A curable composition for transfer materials of the present invention contains a curable silicon compound produced by subjecting a silicon compound (A) having a Si—H group and a compound (B) having a curable functional group and a carbon-carbon double bond other than the curable functional group to a hydrosilylation reaction.

  • Patent number: 8541531
    Abstract: The invention is based on the discovery that addition of certain carboxylic acid derivatives of siloxanes to thermosetting adhesive compositions and die-attach pastes renders such compositions and pastes extremely resistant to resin bleed. The present invention provides siloxane-carboxylic acid compounds useful as anti-bleed additives. Also provided are adhesive compositions and pastes containing the compounds of the invention, which are particularly useful in applications that require little to no resin bleed prior to curing of the compositions (such as e.g., electronic packaging applications).
