The meltblown fibers are formed from a thermoplastic composition that contains at least one propylene/α-olefin copolymer of a certain monomer content, density, melt flow rate, etc. The selection of a specific type of propylene/α-olefin copolymer provides the resulting composition with improved thermal properties for forming a coform web.

20100086741TRANSPARENT MATERIAL PROCESSING WITH AN ULTRASHORT PULSE LASER - Methods for ultrashort pulse laser processing of optically transparent materials. A method for scribing transparent materials uses ultrashort laser pulses to create multiple scribe features with a single pass of the laser beam across the material, with at least one of the scribe features being formed below the surface of the material. This enables clean breaking of transparent materials at a higher speed than conventional techniques. Slightly modifying the ultrashort pulse laser processing conditions produces sub-surface marks. When properly arranged, these marks are clearly visible with side-illumination and not clearly visible without side-illumination. In addition, a method for welding transparent materials uses ultrashort laser pulses to create a bond through localized heating. The ultrashort pulse duration causes nonlinear absorption of the laser radiation, and the high repetition rate of the laser causes pulse-to-pulse accumulation of heat within the materials. The laser is focused near the interface of the materials, generating a high energy fluence at the region to be welded. This minimizes damage to the rest of the material and enables fine weld lines.04-08-2010
