Title (EN) LIQUID-BEARING ARTICLES FOR TRANSFERRING AND APPLYING LIQUIDS
(FR) ARTICLES DE SUPPORT DE LIQUIDE POUR TRANSFÉRER ET APPLIQUER DES LIQUIDES
Abstract:
(EN) An article with an operative liquid-bearing surface adapted for transferring that liquid to a substrate material or printing plate is disclosed. Typically the entire operative surface of the article is provided with a pattern of microscopic discrete depressions which are usually laser-engraved into the surface so that a substantially continuous wall structure remains which surrounds and defines the depressions. In particular the depressions are of a cross-sectional shape which is symmetrical about one or both of a lateral and a medial axis perpendicular thereto, and arranged adjacent one another in offset fashion, and above and below one another so that the pattern thus formed is substantially uniform and repeating. The invention is characterised in that each of at least one of the pairs of lateral or medial sidewalls of any one depression are contoured, the contour of one of the pair being generally the mirror image of the other so that together, said sidewalls define at least one constriction internally of the depression where each of the sidewalls in that pair is most proximate the other, and at least two adjacent depression portions on either side of said constriction and having a maximum lateral or medial dimension greater than the lateral or medial dimension of the constriction such that fluid flow from one portion to the other is partially restricted by said constriction.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un article avec une surface de support de liquide opérationnelle adaptée pour transférer ce liquide vers un matériau de substrat ou une plaque d'impression. Typiquement, la surface opérationnelle entière de l'article est pourvue d'un motif de dépressions microscopiques discrètes qui sont généralement gravées au laser dans la surface de sorte qu'il reste une structure de paroi sensiblement continue qui entoure et définit les dépressions. En particulier, les dépressions ont une forme de section transversale qui est symétrique autour de l'un ou les deux parmi un axe latéral et un axe médian perpendiculaire à celle-ci, et sont adjacentes les unes aux autres de façon décalée, et les unes au-dessus et au-dessous des autres de sorte que le motif formé ainsi soit sensiblement uniforme et répétitif. L'invention est caractérisée en ce que chacune d'au moins l'une des paires de parois latérale ou médiane d'une dépression quelconque est façonnée, le contour de l'une de la paire étant généralement l'image dans un miroir de l'autre de sorte que, conjointement, lesdites parois latérales définissent au moins un rétrécissement interne de la dépression où chacune des parois latérales dans cette paire est plus proche de l'autre, et au moins deux parties de dépression adjacente de chaque côté dudit rétrécissement et ayant une dimension latérale ou médiale supérieure à la dimension latérale ou médiale du rétrécissement de sorte de que l'écoulement de fluide d'une partie vers l'autre soit partiellement restreint par ledit rétrécissement.
