Abstract: Coatings (e.g., thin film glass-like coatings) are deposited on a substrate via a reactive ion plating deposition process, which results in completely dense coatings that mimic the properties of bulk materials and that are fully conformal on all types of non-planar surfaces, even when the coatings have microscopic thicknesses.

Abstract: Shims comprising a mixture of plastic and natural fibers originating from wet processed cellulose fiber based waste source material include an elongate body that tapers down from a thick end to a thin end. A series of ridges and grooves or valleys are formed in at least one face of the body traversing the width of the body from a point adjacent the thick end to a point beyond the longitudinal mid-point of the body. The base of the valleys each form individual break lines preferably spaced apart at predetermined intervals. A raised rim or ridge preferably extends about the outer boundaries of the face in which the ridges and grooves are formed.

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.

Abstract: A method is described herein for packaging a plurality of glass sheets by: (1) coating a top surface of each glass sheet with a removable top protective film; (2) coating a bottom surface of each glass sheet with a removable bottom protective film; and (3) stacking the coated glass sheets next to one another such that the top protective film of one glass sheet is adjacent to the bottom protective film of another glass sheet. The top protective film and/or bottom protective film on each glass sheet has embossed features (e.g., rough features) formed therein which make it easier to separate one glass sheet from one another glass sheet because of the presence of air pockets caused by the embossed features located between the stacked glass sheets. The coated glass sheet and a container that can store a plurality of the coated glass sheets are also described herein.

Abstract: The invention relates to a process for shaping a body with elongate structures on its surface, to bodies produced using the process and to apparatuses comprising bodies of this type, in order to enable spacers to be produced with a high degree of lateral positioning accuracy, in large numbers and at low cost with a process of this type. For this purpose, a preform is provided, at the surface (13), with structures (2-11, 2A, 11A, 2B) which are elongate along one direction, the preform which has been provided with the structures is heated at least in one region (14) and the preform is drawn in the heated state until at least part of the preform has adopted a cross section which substantially corresponds to the desired cross-sectional shape or final cross-sectional shape. The preform is heated by means of radiation which has a spectral distribution which is such that at most half of the radiation power is absorbed during a single pass through the material. The invention relates to a process for shaping a body with elongate structures on its surface, to bodies produced using the process and to apparatuses comprising bodies of this type, in order to enable spacers to be produced with a high degree of lateral positioning accuracy, in ...more ...less

Abstract: An isotropic thermoplastic article such as a sheet of extruded polyvinyl chloride is provided in which the surface of the sheet defines a plurality of fine, parallel grooves. The grooves provide a textured finish to the sheet on which scratches and other surface flaws may be repaired using sandpaper or similar abrasives. By applying the abrasive in the direction of the grooves, the surface flaw may be removed. The resulting repaired area maintains a surface texture and finish which matches the surrounding original surface.

Abstract: A laminated brace such as a support or the like capable of quickly absorbing perspiration produced on the surface of a user's body that is in contact with the brace and releasing it to the exterior of the brace so as to prevent the contact surface from getting sweaty, and a laminated sheet such as a bathroom rug or the like capable of quickly releasing absorbed moisture to the exterior of the sheet so as to be dried in a short time. A material formed by compression molding of an open cell urethane foam is used as an inner material (22). A liner material (21) placed over each of the inner and outer sides of the inner material is made of fibers between which the spaces are narrow. Thus, perspiration (52) can be wicked by the liner material to be released through a great number of channels formed from open cells (33) within the inner material to the exterior of the brace.

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.

Abstract: A single or multi-ply disposable wiping article is disclosed. The disposable wiping article comprises at least one web layer and has a surface topography exhibiting regions of minimum and maximum calipers. A continuous polymer network defining bonded regions and a plurality of unbonded regions is bonded to the web layer. The continuous polymer network is preferably a thermoplastic adhesive.
