  • Patent number: 10343439
    Abstract: The disclosure discloses an elongated cloth medium to be recorded made with a satin weave that ranges from six-harness satin to ten-harness satin by using a warp in a medium longitudinal direction and a weft in a direction orthogonal to the medium longitudinal direction. The cloth medium includes one surface and another surface. The warp has a weaving density that ranges from 300 [yarns/inch] to 540 [yarns/inch]. The weft has a weaving density that ranges from 80 [yarns/inch] to 540 [yarns/inch]. The one surface is a surface with the warp more exposed than the weft in accordance with the satin weave. The cloth medium further includes on the one surface a print-receiving surface that calendering is executed.

  • Patent number: 10323341
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a highly air-permeable woven fabric whose air permeability does not easily deteriorate even after repetitive washing and which has a good fabric quality. The woven fabric of the present invention comprises warp threads constituted by substantially quadrilateral shaped filaments and weft threads constituted by substantially quadrilateral shaped filaments. The warp threads and the weft threads overlap each other in an alternating manner forming crossover points comprising front threads and back threads, such that the warp threads and the weft threads alternate constituting the front threads. The crossover points comprise first crossover points and second crossover points. The first crossover points are the crossover points where the substantially quadrilateral shaped filaments constituting the front threads are aligned in a line.

  • Patent number: 10272640
    Abstract: Low porosity fibrous materials, articles formed therefrom and processes for their formation. Multiple plies of high tenacity, multifilament elongate bodies are optionally stitched together and pressed as a set without being laminated, adhered or thermally fused to each other. Pressing spreads the component filaments of the elongate bodies, forcing the filaments to occupy spaces between adjacent fibers and thereby reducing porosity of the complete multi-ply material.
