  • Publication number: 20230027891
    Abstract: For providing a fabric that has a low frictional property and can exhibit long-term tribological properties even when the fabric is subjected to a high-speed frictional force under a high load, there is provided a fabric according to the present invention is a fabric in which a composite yarn of fluororesin fibers A and fibers B other than fluororesin fibers is used for at least one of a warp yarn and a weft yarn, and the fabric is characterized in that a mass ratio ? of the fluororesin fibers A in the composite yarn is 5 to 70%, and a ratio of the area ratio X of the fluororesin fibers in a fabric surface to a mass ratio Y of the fluororesin fibers in the fabric is 1 or more and 5 or less. This fabric can be usefully used for a cable cover for a robot arm.

  • Publication number: 20220145655
    Abstract: A sliding seismic isolation device includes a structure fixation plate having a first sliding surface and a metallic slider having a second sliding surface contacting the first sliding surface. A friction member composed of a single-layer fabric is attached to the first sliding surface, the second sliding surface, or both of the first sliding surface and the second sliding surface. One of a warp and a weft is formed of multiple plied yarns into which high-strength fibers and PTFE fibers are twisted together and the other of the warp and the weft is formed of multiple high-strength fibers in the single-layer fabric. The single-layer fabric has a twill weave and is woven such that the plied yarns of the one forming the single-layer fabric are exposed at a surface opposite from the attachment side of the friction member more than the high-strength fibers of the other forming the single-layer fabric.

  • Patent number: 10358750
    Abstract: A wear-resistant cloth has high wear resistance and is capable of exerting a long-term sliding property even under high-load environment as compared with conventional cloths. A wear-resistant multilayer fabric includes a sliding fabric and a base fabric. The sliding fabric includes polytetrafluoroethylene fibers A, the base fabric includes fibers B having creep ratio in a standard state and under 20% load of breaking strength, the creep ratio being lower than creep ratio of the polytetrafluoroethylene fibers, and the sliding fabric and the base fabric have mutual warps and/or wefts that are mutually entangled for bonding.
