  • Publication number: 20130280476
    Abstract: A nonwoven laid scrim includes a carrier and an angled scrim overlying the carrier. The angled scrim includes at least one first assembly of filaments and at least one second assembly of filaments. The nonwoven laid scrim has a main direction and a cross direction, the at least one first assembly of filaments is oriented at a first angle, and the at least one second assembly of filaments is oriented at a second angle. Each of the first and second angles is an off-angle measured relative to the cross direction and the first and second angles have distinct values. The nonwoven laid scrim optionally includes a uni-directional fabric including a plurality of filaments, where the carrier overlies the uni-directional fabric. At least two assemblies of filaments and a first cross direction yarn of the carrier also can define a multi-sided shape with at least three sides.

  • Patent number: 6296921
    Abstract: A lightweight, high-strength composite fabric suitable for use in carpet backing, roofing and membranes and other products which employ rugged fabrics. The composite fabric comprises a layer of nonwoven material disposed between a layer of low shrinkage warp strands and a layer of low shrinkage weft strands. The layers are stitched or knitted together and the resultant fabric may be coated with a resin or sizing to prevent slippage between the several layers of the fabric and impart a measure of stiffness to the fabric. The fabric may be manufactured in sheet or, more preferably, roll form and may be coated with materials suitable for desired end applications, e.g., bituminous material whereby the fabric may function as a ready-to-use roofing membrane or other high-strength fabric product.
