Also described herein are methods for preserving the color of wood comprise treating wood, including cut wood, with a solution containing a cell signaling agent inhibitor. Wood, including cut wood, prepared by such methods are further described herein.09-11-2008
20080199618Method of Strengthening a Brittle Oxide Substrate with a Weatherable Coating - The present invention relates to a method of strengthening brittle oxide pieces such as glass pieces with a siloxane-acrylate coating system that has superior weatherability, particularly hydrolytic stability. The coating system comprises a combination of a silane solution and a radiation-curable acrylate solution. The mixture is applied to a clean, brittle oxide surface. The silane solution comprises one or more silanes in a non-aqueous solvent and the radiation-curable acrylate solution comprises one or more acrylate or methacrylate monomers, acrylate or methacrylate oligomers, and initiators, such as photoinitiators.08-21-2008
20130149451METHOD OF FORMING A SIMULATED COMBUSTIBLE FUEL ELEMENT - A method of forming a simulated combustible fuel element including covering at least a part of a surface of a master with a material selected to produce a mold, and then removing the master from the mold. A predetermined amount of a liquefied body material that is less than a volume of the mold is introduced into the mold. A body including the body material is produced with one or more cavities therein and an exterior surface simulating at least the part of the surface of the master. The body material is allowed to solidify, at least to the extent that the body material is self-supporting, and the mold and the body are separated. One or more fuel light sources are positioned to direct light therefrom in the cavity. At least a portion of the exterior surface is coated so that the portion simulates a combustible fuel element.06-13-2013
20120288630Novel Coated Membranes and Other Articles - The present invention provides porous media or membranes having a surface coating that includes a cross-linked terpolymer which has a superior combination of properties, including heat stable biomolecule resistant adsorptive properties, resistance to strong alkaline solutions, and low levels of extractable matter. In some preferred embodiments, the porous media is a porous membrane.11-15-2012
20130209688METHOD FOR SINGLE-STEP SPRAY APPLICATION OF A LINER FOR SYSTEM COMPONENTS - A single-step, spray-applied, multi-layer liner seals the components and imparts structural integrity for lining a system component. The multi-layer liner includes an inner or first moisture barrier or skin layer, a foam layer and a second moisture barrier or skin layer. Where desired, a separate primer layer can be applied to wet surfaces and in order to form an enhanced bonding layer between the system component, typically a concrete or cement surface, and the first moisture barrier or skin layer. The first and second moisture barrier layers naturally form a skin on both sides of the internal foam layer. The combination of the foam layer and the two moisture barrier layers imparts structural strength and rigidity to the cured liner.08-15-2013
