A method of manufacturing polyurethane (PU) foam toys with no restriction on playing environment comprises steps as follows: (1) Placing the prefabricated flexible cover into the foaming mold, and then vacuuming to firmly attach the cover to the inner wall of the mold; (2) Spraying adhesives at the periphery and the interior of the flexible cover while maintaining the continuous vacuum pressure; (3) Injecting the mixed polyurethane into the foaming mold; (4) Closing the mold and performing condensation reaction; (5) Opening the mold to get the product. The present invention is about the production of polyurethane form toys by formulating polyurethanes and binding the interior polyurethane body and flexible cover with adhesives. Because of its resilient and sturdy characteristics, the thermoplastic flexible cover provides protection to the interior polyurethane foam body, effectively eliminating problems like mildew growth, difficulties of cleaning and preventing damage.



Method for fixing a bearing ring on or in a component

A method for fixing a bearing ring on or in a component includes applying an adhesive to a surface of the bearing ring having a least one annular groove-shaped receiving space defined therein such that the adhesive at least partially fills the at least one annular groove-shaped receiving space. The adhesive is allowed to pre-cure on the surface until the adhesive is no longer sticky and then the bearing ring and the component are joined in a desired relative position, such a radial distance between a base of the at least one annular groove-shaped receiving space and the component is larger than a radial distance between the surface and the component. The adhesive is then activated so that the adhesive increases in volume and produces an adhesive bond between the bearing ring and the component.
