    Abstract: A fiber containing an eggshell membrane component. The fiber is produced by spinning using a solution containing the eggshell membrane component by employing an electrospinning method. A fiber assembly formed from the fiber obtained by employing the electrospinning method imitates a natural eggshell membrane, whereby sufficient air permeability is exhibited. Since the fiber assembly is also excellent in adherence to skin tissue of a human body and stypticity, the fiber assembly may be preferably used as a wound dressing or a cosmetic sheet.

  • Patent number: 7188653
    Abstract: A first aspect of the present invention relates to a filament (11; 12), especially for reinforcing rubber articles. Said filament (11; 12) features a contact surface (14) and an outer surface (13). In a second aspect, the invention relates to a steel cord (10) comprising two of said filaments (11, 12), the contact surfaces (14) are arranged adjacent to each other. The outer surfaces (13) are configured arcuate shaped and provide a smooth outer contour (15) of the steel cord (10). Due to said construction the largest dimension (d) of the steel cord (10) and the thickness of a rubber coating (18) may be considerably reduced. Additionally the invention relates to a method of producing a steel cord (10) and to a tyre (20) comprising a carcass ply (22) and/or at least one belt (25; 26) including said steel cords (10).

  • Patent number: 7111543
    Abstract: A method of making a lariat includes twisting under tension a plurality of strands of a plastic material such as nylon to form a rope and then securing the ends of the rope to prevent the strands from untwisting. The rope is then dipped into a hot wax mixture, removed from the hot wax and dried and cooled. A powdery material such as talcum powder is then applied to a portion of the rope adjacent one end after loosely tying a hondo knot therein or prior to tying a hondo knot the powdery material is applied and a hondo knot is then tied and the hondo knot is snugged by stretching the rope.
