*** Georgia Inventor Develops Patent for Composition and Method for Producing Improved Faux Finishes ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 13 -- Robert Westbrook Kitchens, Grayson, Ga., has developed a patent (8,304,022) for a "composition and method for producing improved faux finishes." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The invention provides a polyacrylic-based aerosol top coat composition for rapid and economical application of decorative faux finishes on architectural surfaces. The composition dries rapidly, permits further texturing before it dries if desired, is esthetically superior to faux finish top coats made by methods in the prior art, and when dry provides a top coat that is mechanically tough. The invention is particularly useful for providing wood grain faux finishes, and for creating three-dimensional wood-like effects on a two-dimensional non-wood surface. The invention further provides a method wherein a base coat is applied directly to a surfactant-free surface of any of several architectural materials such as bare vinyl, after which the top coat composition is sprayed on reiteratively as needed. Other coatings such as primer coats and protective overcoatings are optional." The patent application was filed on March 5, 2008 (12/074,627).

*** North Carolina, Grogia, Kansas Inventors Develop Patent for System of Protecting the Edges and Construction Joints of Cast in Place Concrete Slabs ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 13 -- Russell Boxall, Matthews, N.C., Nigel A. Parkes, Atlanta, and Patrick Harrison, Prairie Village, Kan., have developed a patent (8,302,359) for a "system of protecting the edges and construction joints of cast in place concrete slabs." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An improved joint edge assembly, of the type used in the construction of concrete slabs, is disclosed. The assembly comprises a longitudinal joint rail, preferably of steel, which is supported off the ground by formwork. The joint rail comprises first and second joint edge members that are connected to each other by interference-type connectors with self-release elements. A plurality of studs extends downward and outward from each of the joint edge members into the concrete slabs provide a positive mechanical connection between the slab and the joint rail. As the concrete shrinks during hardening, the self-release elements of the interference-type connectors allow the joint to freely open. The joint edge assembly thus provides a self-releasing joint between adjacent slab sections, and protects the edges of the adjacent slab sections from damage. A dowel aligner may also be integrated into the assembly, to allow proper positioning of dowels within the slab." The patent application was filed on April 22, 2005 (11/112,431). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,02,359.PN.&OS=PN/83,02,359&RS=PN/83,02,359 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.

*** Hardy Imports Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 13 -- Hardy Imports, Homosassa, Fla., has been assigned a patent (8,302,788) developed by William R. Vargo, Lithonia, Ga., and Leroy Cameron Tuck, Homosassa, Fla., for a demountable shelving unit.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A demountable shelving unit with welded crossbar supports, open-channel upright supports, and channel support features. The welded crossbar supports and diagonal supports are slidably received within open-channel upright supports. Upper and lower crossbar supports include upright insertion blocks that are captured within the upright supports and horizontal connectors that extend through slots in the upright supports to connect two upright supports together to form an end unit. Shelf units are connected between two end units to create an assembled shelf. For a typical shelving unit, only eight bolts are needed to assemble each end unit and the shelf units attach to the end units with rivet-type quick disconnect fasteners that fit within teardrop shaped sockets in the upright supports. This results in a demountable shelf that can be assembled quickly and easily with only sixteen bolts per shelving unit." The patent application was filed on Jan. 20, 2009 (12/356,209). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,02,788.PN.&OS=PN/83,02,788&RS=PN/83,02,788 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.

*** Georgia Inventor Develops Patent for Dual Ignition Safe Charcoal Starter ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 13 -- Kathy Elizabeth Phelps, Lilbum, Ga., has developed a patent (8,302,592) for a "dual ignition safe charcoal starter." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The improved charcoal starter design has several improvements, one being that it utilizes either; readily combustible materials like wadded up paper or a removable or replaceable common electric heating element to heat charcoal to incandescent and safely deposit hot embers into the grill. The common electric heating element is held in place through a clip fixedly attached to the inside of the charcoal starter housing walls and opposite of the opening for the electric heating element. Yet another improvement to this unique charcoal starter designed is the perforated grate having at least one hinge on one side and at least one notch on the opposite side, a release mechanism consisting of a thermally insulated release handle and a release bar with at least one protrusion such that when the release mechanism is activated by pulling the release handle, the protrusion of the release bar aligns with the notch of the perforated hinged grate and the perforated hinged grate will then rotate about the hinge in a downward direction creating an opening and thus allowing the incandescent embers to be deposited safely into the grill where needed and without danger of hot embers and ash being splashed about and possibly injuring the user." The patent application was filed on June 5, 2009 (12/455,729). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,02,592.PN.&OS=PN/83,02,592&RS=PN/83,02,592 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.
