WO/2016/189266 A STERILIZED SACHET AND A METHOD OF MANUFACTURING SAME||WO||01.12.2016|
||PCT/GB2016/000105||GAMA HEALTHCARE LTD||BRAVERMAN, Guy|
A sterilized sachet (1) comprises a sealed impervious pouch (2) containing a biocide (4). The pouch (2) but not the biocide (4) has been sterilized by irradiation prior to having been filled with the biocide (4) and sealed. Preferably, the biocide (4) comprises chlorhexidine gluconate. Irradiation of the pouch (2) prior to filling ensures that a sterile sachet is produced that does not contain any degradation products with undesirable carcinogenic properties that are often the result of the irradiation of biocides such as those containing chlorhexidine gluconate. A method of manufacturing the sachet is also disclosed comprising the steps of providing one or more sheets of an impervious laminate; forming a pouch (2) from the laminate; sterilizing the pouch (2) by irradiation; and filling the sterilized pouch (2) with the biocide (4) prior to sealing the edges of the pouch (2) to produce the sachet (1). Preferably, a piece of dry absorbent material (7) is located within the pouch (2) and sterilized by irradiation with the pouch (2) prior to filling of the pouch (2) with the biocide (4). The material (7) absorbs the biocide (4) and forms a swab or wipe for use when the sachet (1) is opened.
WO/2016/189267 DISPENSING CLOSURES AND DISPENSERS||WO||01.12.2016|
||PCT/GB2016/051187||RIEKE PACKAGING SYSTEMS LIMITED||KNIGHT, Simon Christopher|
A dispensing closure for dispensing fluid product from a squeeze container consists of an outer cap element (3) and an inner element or valve disc (4) fitting inside the cap element. Each is moulded from thermoplastics; no elastomer is used. The cap element includes an outwardly-deflectable diaphragm wall (35) around a central outlet opening (361). The inner element (4) has a peripheral mounting ring (41), a central blocking portion (48) and a set of support spokes (46) providing flow clearance between them. In a closed position the blocking portion closes the outlet opening. In an outflow condition the diaphragm wall (35) deflects outwardly to allow flow. In a recovery mode the blocking portion (48) deflects inwardly for compensation air or residual liquid product to enter the container.
WO/2016/189268 THERMAL PROTECTION SYSTEM||WO||01.12.2016|
||PCT/GB2016/051202||PHOENIXTM LTD||BUDDEN, Ian|
Apparatus (10) comprises a first ("inner") container (12) and a second ("outer") container (14) configured to house the first container (12). The first container (12) is configured to house a data logging device (20) whilst connected to at least one external thermocouple (22). The first container (2) is sealed in use to prevent ingress of oil during an oil quench of a thermal treatment process. The second container (14) is intentionally unsealed to allow egress of air when the apparatus (10) is heated during the thermal treatment process. This means that oil will penetrate the second container (14) during the oil quench of the thermal treatment process. The second container (14) comprises at least one disposable insulation member (30) defining a chamber (32) for accommodating (10) the first container (12). The at least one disposable insulation member (30) is substantially non- absorbent to oil, meaning that oil retention and consequential fire risk will be minimised when the apparatus (10) is opened to access the data logging device (10) after the oil quench of the thermal treatment process.

A method of making an automotive window assembly includes providing a glass substrate having a bonding surface. A first primer is applied over a portion of the bonding surface. An adhesive is applied to a surface of a polymeric member. The adhesive on the surface of the polymeric member faces the bonding surface of the glass substrate. An ultrasonic bonding apparatus is provided. The ultrasonic bonding apparatus receives a portion of the polymeric member. The ultrasonic bonding apparatus generates a predetermined amount of ultrasonic energy and converts the ultrasonic energy into mechanical energy. The mechanical energy is transferred to the polymeric member to generate heat in the adhesive and bond the polymeric member to the glass substrate.
