Abstract: Described is a composite comprising at least one textile sheet material composed of synthetic polymer fibers and at least one textile sheet material composed of inorganic fibers, which textile sheet materials are joined to one another by yarns.The textile sheet materials are preferably joined together by sewing, knitting or stitch-bonding.The composite is especially useful as reinforcement for the production of roofing felts.
Abstract: A method of producing a reinforced sheet by feeding a layer of foam material to a stitching machine at a rate greater than that at which the stitched material is produced by the machine. The stitching in the product is thus disposed below the surface of the foam and hence is not destroyed during subsequent flame-bonding.
