Publication/Patent Number: US2005170141A1 Publication Date: 2005-08-04 Application Number: 10/438,036 Filing Date: 2003-05-13 Inventor: Bacon, Forrest   Holland, Wendell   Tikalsky, John   Assignee: Bacon, Forrest   Holland, Wendell   Tikalsky, John   IPC: B32B003/30 Abstract: Synthetic nylon fiber composite materials having embossed or molded surfaces that emulate shingles or roofing tiles are disclosed, for providing waterproof, high-strength, durable substitute for shingles or roofing tiles. In one embodiment, these materials can be relatively thin, and designed to rest on supporting sheets of plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), or nylon fiber composite board that have been nailed to rafters. In an alternate embodiment, these materials can be manufactured in sheets with sufficient thickness, stiffness, and strength to allow them to be nailed directly to rafters, thereby eliminating the need for a supporting layer of plywood or OSB. In a third embodiment, these materials can be molded or embossed to emulate Spanish tiles, or to provide enhanced drainage or other useful traits. For improved waterproofing, the lower edge of each segment can be provided with an overhang that will overlap the upper edge of an adjacent sheet on the next lower horizontal row, to provide overlapping material at each juncture between these composite segments. These materials also can be coated or embedded with chemicals that provide increased resistance to water, fire, and ultraviolet damage. They provide excellent thermal insulation, and can reduce heating and air conditioning costs. A preferred manufacturing process uses needle-punched fiber mats, and any combination of nylon-6 and nylon-6,6 fibers can be used.

Brazed sintered compact
Publication/Patent Number: US2004013897A1 Publication Date: 2004-01-22 Application Number: 10/435,513 Filing Date: 2003-05-09 Inventor: Yano, Katsuhiko   Harakawa, Toshiro   Assignee: MITSUBISHI MATERIALS CORPORATION   IPC: B32B003/30 Abstract: A brazed sintered compact composed of first and second components, which are easily positioned relative to each other, enabling the provision of a good joining clearance. If a protrusion 3 of a first component 1 is fitted into a recess 13 of a second component 10, both components are able to be positioned relative to each other. Simultaneously, a joining clearance A can be easily obtained between a joining surface 2 of the first component 1 and a joining surface 12 of the second component 10, corresponding to a dimensional difference therebetween. Also, an inner side surface 4a of a storage groove 4 is aligned with a right or left end 11a of a leg 11, disposed opposite to the inner side surface 4a. Accordingly, it is possible to allow as much brazing material as properly needed to permeate between the joining surfaces 2 and 12. Further, as the surface tension of the surplus brazing material becomes unlikely to be developed in the storage grooves 4, 4′, the backflow of the material is prevented.
