  • Patent number: 10524584
    Abstract: Multilayer furniture protective devices and methods of use are provided herein. An example furniture protective device includes a tubular sleeve having a first open end and a second open end. The tubular sleeve has a layered pair of substrates including an elastomeric sheet stitched to a polymeric fabric sheet. The elastomeric sheet is stitched using a diamond pattern and the polymeric fabric sheet has a stitched diamond pattern that forms cells. Each of the cells has a ruching of polymeric fabric sheet material. The cells can expand when the furniture protective device is stretched due to the ruching of polymeric fabric sheet material allowing the tubular sleeve to expand to encompass an article of furniture. The elastomeric sheet resiliently biasing the tubular sleeve into a conforming relationship around the article of furniture.

  • Patent number: 10259612
    Abstract: A container includes a metal end applied and sealed to an all-thermoplastic container body by a crimp-seaming or double-seaming operation. The metal end has an outer curl joined to a chuck wall that extends down from the curl. One or both of the inner surface of the container side wall and the outer surface of the chuck wall has/have a heat-sealable material thereon. The metal end is crimp-seamed or double-seamed to the container body and the heat-sealable material(s) are heated to soften or melt such that the interface between the chuck wall and the side wall is fused. The interface is oriented along a direction relative to internal pressure exerted on the metal end such that stress on the interface caused by the internal pressure is predominantly shear stress.
