  • Publication number: 20170206587
    Abstract: A method of generating a tire recommendation includes receiving vehicle data and historical driving data of a user, retrieving, by a computer, a first set of tire names having associated vehicle fitment data that corresponds to the vehicle data, and selecting, by the computer, a first criteria based on the historical driving data. The method further includes identifying a final set of tire names, by identifying tire names in the first set of tire names that have associated tire performance data that meet the first criteria. The method also includes identifying, by the computer, a tire name from the final set of tire names having a highest associated sales history datum as a first tire recommendation, and displaying, by the computer, the first tire recommendation.

  • Publication number: 20130195784
    Abstract: A solid dispersion of pigment for an aqueous composition includes a pigment and an ethoxylated alcohol. The solid dispersion of pigment is adapted for being directly incorporated into the aqueous composition with reduced shear for coloration. A method of preparing a solid dispersion of pigment for an aqueous composition with reduced shear mixing includes heating the mixture of an ethoxylated alcohol and a pigment, and cooling the mixture to obtain the solid dispersion of pigment.

  • Patent number: 6105624
    Abstract: A fabric which is formed by a weaving system designed to automatically maintain a printed pattern in alignment with a woven pattern as the fabric is being formed. The printed pattern is printed onto the warp yarns. A controller is used to monitor the position of the printed pattern during the weaving process relative to the position of a woven pattern that is being formed into the fabric. Should the printed pattern and woven pattern fall out of alignment, the controller then alters the longitudinal size of the woven pattern, the printed pattern, or both patterns, in order to realign the patterns.
