  • Patent number: 8613993
    Abstract: The Present Invention discloses a slit web material, substantially longer than it is wide, with specially shaped slits that permit relatively easy expansion upon deployment. The specially shaped slits are referred to in the Present Application as “tilde-slits,” because they resemble a tilde mark. The cuts are arranged in continuous rows of tilde-slits. In any given row, the tilde-slits follow one-after-the-other in a linear direction. Adjacent rows of slits are parallel to each other, but are offset from one another such that a line drawn between adjacent tilde-slits in adjacent rows is not perpendicular to the direction of the rows. The invention contemplates that the material dispenses from a continuous roll. If the slits are arranged in the longitudinal direction, then the web material expands in the width direction only upon deployment.

  • Patent number: 8512851
    Abstract: A wrapping material for use with existing wrapping equipment or balers for wrapping bales of agricultural produce or other items are disclosed. The base wrapping material may be a netting, film, or combination thereof. The wrapping material includes a plurality of pre-defined, discrete, spaced-apart adhesive areas disposed on each side of the opposing sides of the wrapping material. The longitudinal spacing of the adhesive areas allows the wrapping material to be rolled onto a roll core so that the discrete spaced-apart adhesive areas contact only non-adhesive areas of the wrapping material thereby forming a first level of adhesion that easily allows the wrapping material to be released and unrolled. When wrapping an item, corresponding discrete adhesive areas come into face-to-face contact thereby forming a second level of adhesion that is stronger than the first level of adhesion.

  • Patent number: 8080300
    Abstract: A method of making a roll of adhesive tape that comprises providing a length of tape having a leading end, a trailing end, a first side, and a second side opposite the first side, wherein the second side of the tape is at least partially covered with pressure sensitive adhesive and providing a tab having first and second opposite ends having a length between them, a first side, and a second side, wherein at least a portion of the second side of the tab is covered with pressure sensitive adhesive. The method further comprises advancing the length of tape along a tape path, positioning the leading tape end about a central tape roll axis, and circumferentially winding the length of tape about the axis until a penultimate tape layer having a circumference is wound.

  • Patent number: 8007886
    Abstract: An underlayment for supplementing one or more physical properties of wall, ceiling, and floor construction components is used to in a wall, ceiling, or floor assembly that may be fabricated on site. The assembly includes: first and second wall, ceiling, or floor construction components which each have physical properties and an underlayment component which has at least one supplemental physical property for supplementing the physical properties of the first and second construction components. The construction components may or may not be secured together with the underlayment sandwiched between the second and first construction components to form a wall, ceiling, or floor assembly with the supplemental physical property or properties of the underlayment. The supplemental physical property or properties of the underlayment may include, but are not limited to, latent storage of thermal energy, sound transmission reduction, and/or burn through resistance.

  • Patent number: 8002136
    Abstract: The present invention provides an explosion-proof material which includes a high-porosity sheet (11); With one side(12) of the material as center, the high-porosity sheet (11) is wound into multilayer material body(1) along the direction perpendicular to the side(12); The skeleton(13) is inserted between the multilayer high-porosity sheet (11) of the material body(1); The present invention also provides a processing method for explosion-proof material, including: inserting the skeleton (13) between the high-porosity sheet (11), cutting off the high-porosity sheet (11), and the high-porosity sheet in which the skeleton(13) is inserted is wound into multilayer explosion-proof material. The present invention adopts skeleton to support the body of high-porosity sheet, and thus can effectively prevent the material body from collapse and deformation.

  • Patent number: 7854978
    Abstract: A tape strip has a tab section and an adhesive section. The adhesive section may have an adhesive on one or both planar surfaces of the strip. When the adhesive portion has adhesive on both planar surfaces, the tape strip may or may not comprise a separation mechanism that permits a separation of the tab portion from the adhesive portion. When the adhesive portion has adhesive on only one planar surface, the tape strip comprises the separation mechanism.
