In one embodiment, the fiber blend includes FR modacrylic fibers and synthetic cellulosic fibers, preferably, but not necessarily non-FR lyocell fibers such as TENCEL™ and TENCEL A100™. Other fibers may be added to the blend, including, but not limited to, additional types of inherently FR fibers, anti-static fibers, anti-microbial fibers, stretch fibers, and/or high tenacity fibers.

    Abstract: A cloth includes a scrim backing and an aluminized coating heat pressed to either or both sides of the scrim, preferably between rollers which apply pressure to the scrim and the coating at a temperature selected to cause the coating to adhere to the scrim. If the scrim is dimpled, the heated aluminized plastic flows into the dimples, enhancing the bonding of the coating to the scrim and also at least partially filling the dimples to provide a smoother reflective finish than the uncoated surface of the scrim. If the scrim is not already dimpled, the surface of the pressing rollers can be selected to provide the desired dimpling. The scrim strengthens the cloth against tearing, stretching and distortion. The coating provides a radiant barrier. The resulting cloth is thin, lightweight, easily manipulated, thermally efficient, extremely “quiet” and especially well suited to hunting or other natural-environment activities.

  • Publication number: 20140378015
    Abstract: By taking into account the difficulty in smoothly bending along the shape of, for example, a care bed, there is provided a three-dimensional net-like structure made from polyester having a swelling ratio dependent on a shear rate such as to be 1.10 to 1.38 at a shear rate of 60.8 sec?1 and 1.17 to 1.43 at a shear rate of 608 sec?1 and having an MFR of 3 to 35 g/10 min and a density of 1.01 to 1.60 g/cm3 and configured to have a spring structure of filaments randomly brought into contact with and tangled with one another, have a three-dimensional striped sparse-dense configuration in a lateral direction relative to an extrusion direction. The swelling ratio is shown as D2/D1 against shear rate when a molten thermoplastic resin is extruded to filaments from a capillary having a tube inner diameter D1 of 1.0 mm and a length of 10 mm and D2 denotes a diameter of cross section of the filaments extruded and cooled down.
