  • Patent number: 10752183
    Abstract: A laminated composite interior part includes a first member made of synthetic resin and having a mating surface; and a second member made of elastically deformable synthetic resin and having a plate portion substantially parallel to the mating surface. The plate portion has integrally-formed and interspersed protrusions protruding toward the mating surface. The second member is placed on the first member with distal end portions of the protrusions being in contact with the mating surface. Cushioning properties are provided by elastic deformation of the protrusions, caused as the protrusions' distal end portions are relatively pressed against the mating surface. Flexural rigidity of each of the protrusions against a compressive load is anisotropic about its axis, so that the protrusion is flexurally deformed in one direction about its axis with the distal end portion thereof sliding on the mating surface. Surface roughness of the mating surface is less than 0.20.

  • Patent number: 10730451
    Abstract: An interior component includes a base member and an outer member, which is stacked on the base member. The outer member is provided with projections and protruding portions. The projections project from an opposing surface, which is opposed to the base member. The projections are deformed while bending in a falling manner in specific directions by contacting the base member. The protruding portions protrude from the opposing surface and are provided on the paths along which the projections are deformed.

  • Patent number: 10160404
    Abstract: Provided is a multilayer composite interior component in which boundary protrusions (20b) aligned in a row on both sides of a parting line (L) are arranged in a staggered manner so as to bend toward the boundary protrusions (20b) in the row opposite thereto. In this way, even when the boundary protrusions (20b) are separated from the parting line (L) by a predetermined distance (g1, g2) in order to maintain the strength of a divided mold, the boundary protrusions (20b) bend and deform so as to fill in an empty part in the vicinity of the parting line (L) when a surface layer member (16) is pressed by fingers or a hand. As a result, a feeling of unevenness resulting from decreases in reaction force in the vicinity of the parting line (L) is minimized, thus making it possible to obtain a more uniform texture.

  • Patent number: 9815418
    Abstract: Numerous fine projections (20) are formed interspersed on a plate-shape member (18), and the neutral plane (S) of each fine projection (20) is inclined at an inclination angle ? to the normal line (O) such that the contact center (Q) does not overlap with the base part in the plane direction of the surface (22), so when a pressing load (F) is applied, the moment acting on the fine projections (20) is large, and the fine projections (20) easily deform to bend in the respective inclination direction. By this means, the tactile softness (cushion properties) are improved by preventing the fine projections (20) from undergoing simple compression deformation in the axial direction, and stick-slip due to friction between the fine projections (20) and the surface (22) is avoided, making it possible to obtain a smooth and stable tactile softness.
