Sherwin Williams Corporation | Date: 2016-10-12

A fluid dispensing apparatus may be used to dispense a paint fluid from a paint container that is under pressure and that has a pierceable membrane. The fluid dispensing apparatus may include a valve body having a bore, an adaptor having a bore and a piercing member, and a nozzle having a bore. The fluid dispensing apparatus may be operable to pierce the pierceable membrane to communicate the paint within the paint container with the adaptor bore and with the valve body bore. The nozzle may be operable to permit the paint to flow under the pressure out of the paint container, through the adaptor bore, through the valve body bore and through the nozzle bore to ambient.

A method performed by an electronic device includes storing a correlation between spectral data values and mix ratio values of components of a mixture. Spectral data is acquired from a coating, of the mixture, that is applied to a substrate. A mix ratio, of the components that are in the coating, is determined from the acquired spectral data based on the stored correlation.

A pre-treated wipe is disclosed. The pre-treated wipe includes an absorbent substrate impregnated with a solution. The solution includes a colorant capable of imparting a change in color to a wood surface. The solution further includes a finishing composition. The solution further includes a thickening agent. The solution has a finished viscosity that is greater than an original viscosity of the solution when prepared without the thickening agent. The absorbent substrate is impregnated with the solution before being disposed in a package.

A soft-feel radiation polymerizable aqueous coating composition comprising: (i) an aqueous polyurethane dispersion having radiation polymerizable ethylenic unsaturation and which is substantially free of groups reactive with hydroxyl functionality under conditions of radiation polymerization; and (ii) an aqueous polyurethane polyol which is substantially free of polymerizable ethylenic unsaturation and which is unreactive with the aqueous polyurethane dispersion (i) under conditions of radiation polymerization; (iii) a photoinitiator; and (iv) water; and wherein the coating composition is free of external crosslinkers reactive with the polyurethane polyol.


Systems and methods providing digitally enhanced imaging for the prediction, application, and inspection of coatings. A digital imaging and processing device provides image acquisition, processing, and display of acquired digital imaging data to allow a user to discern variations, beyond that which can be discerned by observing a coating or a substrate with the naked eye. The digital imaging and processing device may also provide pre-coating and post-coating inspection capabilities as well as coating prediction capabilities.

Provided is a tool that includes a handle assembly including a top portion and a bottom portion. The tool also includes a lock plate disposed between the top and bottom portions and having a deflectable arm having a free end biased towards the top portion, a fixed end opposite the free end, an inner edge, an outer edge, and a detent near the free end and the inner edge. The tool additionally includes a blade having first and second ends, an indent in a bottom surface of the blade near the first end for engaging the detent in a closed position, and a ramp on the bottom surface near the indent defining a reduced thickness portion of the blade that reduces in thickness from the indent towards an edge of the blade to reduce contact between the detent and the blade during rotation of the blade.
