  • Publication number: 20140026897
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a face mask for removal of biological and mechanical impurities from breathed and/or exhaled air, comprising an inner textile layer and an outer textile layer, between which there is arranged a filtering layer of polymer nanofibres and/or active layer of polymer nanofibres, which in its structure contains a biocidal substance/s. The outer as well as the inner textile layer are formed of microfibres, while at least the outer textile layer and with it neighbouring filtering or active layer of polymer nanofibres are hydrophobic, and all layers are interconnected by a net of joints, that prevent their mutual motion and reduce permeability of the face mask only minimally. The inner textile layer is on periphery of the face mask provided with a layer of an adhesive for fastening to the face of the user. This method of fixing the face mask to the face secures perfect adhesion of the face mask to the skin along its entire periphery, thus preventing breathing of an unfiltered air.

  • Patent number: 8545654
    Abstract: A method for producing pant-type absorbent articles, each article including a chassis structure having at least one elastic panel and an integrated absorbent core component, the method including a continuous pant-forming process including forming the chassis structure and incorporating the absorbent core component into the chassis structure. The at least one elastic panel is formed by a) separately producing a two-layer laminate having a first non-elastic fibrous nonwoven web and an elastic film, b) activating the two-layer laminate by incremental stretching in at least one activation direction to render the two-layer laminate (elastically stretchable, c) stretching the activated two-layer laminate by 35-200% in the activation direction, d) introducing the two-layer laminate in the pant-forming process, and e) laminating the elastic film of the stretched two-layer laminate to an elastic or nonwoven chassis component. An absorbent pant-type article produced in accordance with the method.

    Abstract: A single facer media is provided according to the invention. The single facer media includes a fluted sheet attached to a facing sheet and having a first end and a second end so that when the single facer media is formed into a media pack, the first end or the second end forms a media pack first face, and the other of the first end or the second end forms a media pack second face. Adhesive is provided between the fluted sheet and the facing sheet at the first end or the second end, and wherein the fluted sheet and the facing sheet are pushed together and adhered together at the location of the adhesive to provide a seal between the fluted sheet and the facing sheet. At least 25% of the flutes of the fluted sheet comprise at least one ridge extending along at least 50% of the flute length between adjacent peaks. Filtration media packs, filter elements, and methods for forming a single facer media are provided.

    Abstract: Carbon fiber bicycle wheels are formed from parts cut from carbon fiber cloth and then joined together to form a rim, sidewalls, spokes, flanges and a center tunnel on which the flanges are mounted. The parts are then assembled, bonded together, and cured to form a wheel. During assembly, the spokes and the wheel are placed in tension by moving the flanges outwardly on the center tunnel after assembly and then bonding them in place to stiffen and strengthen the wheel. The spokes of the drive side of the rear wheel are specially shaped to accommodate torque transfer forces generated by pedaling.
