The ink layer is permanently transferred to the shoe by manually applying pressure or water.06-20-2013
20110232836REACTIVE POLYMER-SUPPORTING POROUS FILM FOR BATTERY SEPARATOR AND USE THEREOF - A reactive polymer-supporting porous film is provided as a battery separator which comprises a porous substrate film and a partially crosslinked reactive polymer supported on the porous substrate film. The partially crosslinked reactive polymer is obtained by the reaction of a crosslinkable polymer having at least one group selected from the 3-oxetanyl group and epoxy group reactive with a polycarboxylic acid. The reactive polymer-supporting porous film has a separator and electrodes sufficiently bonded to each other and with low inner resistance suitably used for production of battery excellent in high rate performance. Further, provided is a method of producing a battery which comprises placing the electrode/reactive polymer-supporting porous film layered body in a battery container; introducing an electrolytic solution containing a cationic polymerization catalyst into the battery container thereby bonding the porous film and electrodes together.09-29-2011
20130180649SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SEALING VENTS - A method for sealing a vent includes coupling a film including an adhesive surface to an applicator, applying the film onto the vent using the applicator adhering the adhesive surface to at least one of the vent and a portion of a structure surrounding the vent, and decoupling the film from the applicator during or after the applying the film. An applicator for applying a sealing film to a vent for sealing the vent includes a first elongate member, a second elongate member having a bore extending along its length and receiving the first member within the bore, where the first elongate member is longer than the second elongate member and where a first end portion of the first elongate member extends beyond a first end of the second elongate member and a second end portion of the first elongate member extends beyond a second end of the first elongate member, and where the second elongate member is rotatable to various orientations relative to the first elongate member about a longitudinal axis.07-18-2013
20130118678Template Material and Method of Utilizing the Same to Attach Items to a Base Material - A template material for use in attaching items, such as rhinestones and the like, to a base material, including the material of an article of clothing or an accessory item such as a hat, belt or purse. The template material comprises a flock material and a backing material, such as vinyl. A back surface of the flock is joined to the front surface of the vinyl to define a flock top surface and sticky bottom surface of the template material. A method of manufacturing the template material uses heat to join the flock to the vinyl. A method of utilizing the template material comprises cutting holes in the template material in a pattern, filling each hole with an item, removing the items from the template with a plastic sheet, placing the plastic sheet on a base material and applying heat to the items to attach them to the base material.05-16-2013
20110303353Heat Transfer Methods and Sheets for Applying An Image to a Substrate - Methods of transferring an image to a substrate are generally provided. A heat transfer material can be partially cut to define a shape with cuts made into the heat transfer material (i.e., into its thickness). The heat transfer material includes a transferable portion overlying a release layer overlying a base sheet such that the cuts are made into the heat transfer material through the transferable portion while leaving the release layer and base sheet uncut. The transferable portion of the heat transfer material can be removed from the base sheet in an area surrounding the shape. Then, the heat transfer material can be positioned adjacent the substrate such that the transferable portion defined by the shape contacts the substrate. Heat and pressure can be applied to the heat transfer material. Thereafter, the base sheet can be removed.12-15-2011
