  • Patent number: 10640057
    Abstract: According to an aspect, the present embodiments may be associated with a heat shield including a retention feature or member. In an embodiment, the retention member is integrated with the heat shield body and includes a trilobal shaped aperture formed therein. The trilobal shaped aperture is adapted and configured to receive and temporarily retain a fastener. Thus, the heat shield is capable of at least being temporarily held in place prior to the use of permanent installation techniques.

  • Patent number: 10604087
    Abstract: According to an aspect, the present embodiments may be associated with a heat shield including a sealing member. In an embodiment, the sealing member is positioned along at least a portion of a partially hemmed edge and retained thereby. Thus, the heat shield is capable of providing insulative and/or sealing properties when used, specifically thermal, vibrational and/or acoustical shielding, as well as limiting fluid flow across the edge of the heat shield.

  • Publication number: 20180363183
    Abstract: A cross-lapped multilayered batt, and a method of making the same is presented. The batt includes one or more layers of a carded web of staple fibers, and one or more continuous filament fiber layers. At least some of the staple fibers and, in some instances, some of the continuous filament fibers are mechanically entangled through a thickness of the batt. The method includes folding both the carded web and the continuous filament fiber layers together, and subjecting the folded layers to a needle-punching process to impart structural stability and enhance the Z-directional strength of the batt.

  • Patent number: 10144367
    Abstract: A molded and shaped acoustical insulating vehicle panel having a dry-laid needled fibrous composite composed of a first portion of about 50 to 80 percent meltable binder fibers and about 20 to 50 percent stable fibers and having a second portion of about 20 to 50 percent meltable binder fibers and 50 to 80 percent of staple fibers. The meltable binder fibers are in a molded and resolidified state such that the resolidified binder fibers of the first portion form a substantially continuous, semi-impervious, densified skin integrally associated with and bonded to a surface of the first portion. The molded composite is in such a heat and pressure molded state that the composite has over a predominance of its area a density of from about 12 to 22 lbs./cubic foot (192 to 352 kg/cubic meter) and the panel is sufficiently rigid as to be self-supporting.

  • Publication number: 20180315410
    Abstract: An acoustical insulator having a composite air flow resistance is presented. The insulator may be for being positioned within a void space, and may include first and second sheets. The sheets may be joined to each other in an overlapping configuration along their respective peripheral edges, thereby defining an overlapped area between them. The sheets may include contours, such that the acoustical insulator substantially conforms to a peripheral boundary of the void space. The overlapped area may define a substantially closed air gap between the adjoined first and second sheets, the air gap having variable gap lengths along the respective sheet areas. The density of at least one of the sheets may vary with the variable gap length, so that the sheets and air gap collectively provide a composite air flow resistance through the insulator to absorb noise at a predetermined peak frequency.
