The invention relates to: a method of adhering a flexible film to a substrate, in which a sufficient quantity of a liquid is disposed between the film and the substrate such that no bubbles are trapped therebetween once the film has been applied to the substrate with the aid of a scraper, said method being characterised in that the liquid does not freeze at a substrate temperature of less than 0.degree. C.; the mutually-adhered substrate and flexible film which is characterised by the continued absence of frost in the event of the substrate and film being moved into an atmosphere in which the temperature thereof is less than 0.degree. C., from an atmosphere having a temperature that is at least equal to 0.degree. C. and residual moisture of at least 25%; glazing comprising same; and the applications of said glazing, including for example exposure to temperatures of less than 0.degree. C.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
