  • Patent number: 6875473
    Abstract: Woven fabric of continuous, untwisted carbon yarn is impregnated with a modified cyanate ester resin or oligomer, preferably at least about 10% by weight of the combined weight of the cured resin and fabric. The cured fabric may be employed as a wet friction material suitable for use in transmission fluid couplings, and the like. The cured composite sheet can be backed with an adhesive film or liquid bonding paste for ease of bonding to one side of the metal portion of the transmission or clutch. Where thicker material is required, two or more cured composite sheets can be bonded together for applications such as transmissions.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 5952249
    Abstract: The present invention provides a novel amorphous carbon-coated carbon fabric which comprises a single ply of a woven carbon fabric comprising interwoven strands of yarn. The yarn strands are formed of bundles of individual fibers and have amorphous carbon disposed between the individual fibers.The present invention also relates to a method of forming an amorphous carbon-coated carbon fabric. The method comprises the steps of (1) impregnating a woven carbon fabric with a resin; and (2) heating the resulting resin-impregnated carbon fabric to a temperature which is sufficient to char the resin to form a residue of amorphous carbon, thereby forming an amorphous carbon-coated carbon fabric material.

  • Patent number: 4372535
    Abstract: A capstan winch for pulling cable through conduit includes means for measuring the torque applied to the capstan and a take-up reel. The torque measuring means comprises an inner drum connected by a tension spring to a concentric outer drum. A patterned disc on the inner drum is visible through a window in the outer drum. The pattern indicates the relative position of the inner and outer drums, which is correlated to the applied torque.
