  • Patent number: 9498003
    Abstract: A gripping fabric and method for construction thereof is provided. A fabric structure that defines an inner surface and an outer surface is created. The fabric structure or the gripping fabric is configured to conform to a user's body part for constructing a garment, for example, a sock. The inner surface is proximal to a user contact surface and distal to an external contact surface. The outer surface is proximal to the external contact surface and distal to the user contact surface. A gripping material is selectively applied on the inner surface and/or the outer surface of the fabric structure. The gripping material on the inner surface and the outer surface of the fabric structure adheres to the user contact surface and the external contact surface respectively, thereby providing grip between the user contact surface and the fabric structure, and grip between the fabric structure and the external contact surface.

  • Patent number: 7972675
    Abstract: A friction material has a resin amount distribution that is the largest at a portion near a non-friction surface, that becomes lower toward an inside and that is the lowest at a portion near a friction surface. For example, such friction material is manufacture as follows. First, two friction materials are overlapped while the friction surfaces faced with each other. Then, the friction materials are dried at a room temperature. At this time, the resin has such a characteristic as to move while dragged by a solvent that dries from the non-friction surface located outside. Using such characteristic, the resin amount at the portion near the friction surface is lessened. Then, a temperature at the friction surface is made low and a temperature at the non-friction surface is made high in a drying step of the friction material. Thereby, the resin amount at the portion near the friction surface is lessened.

  • Patent number: 6911407
    Abstract: Disclosed is an absorbent article useful for the following purposes without limitation: as a bed pad, a baby changing pad, a bib, a table cloth, or a painter's drop cloth. The absorbent article includes a vapor-permeable liquid-impermeable bottomsheet having an interior surface and an exterior surface, an absorbent structure positioned adjacent the interior surface, and a non-adhesive skid-resistant coating applied to the exterior surface such that the bottomsheet remains vapor-permeable after application of the coating. The non-adhesive skid resistant coating improves the ability of the absorbent article to remain in position without leaving residue on surfaces while leaving the absorbent article breathable.

  • Patent number: 6893989
    Abstract: The invention relates to a stab-resisting material, which material consists of a carrier coated with solid particles, which is provided on a packet of fabrics, wherein the coating on said carrier consists of abrasive particles having a diameter of 0.1-3 mm, and wherein the packet of fabrics is thicker than 1.5 mm. The invention also relates to the coated carrier, wherein the abrasive particles have been provided on the carrier by means of an adhesive, which forms an elastic film after curing. In particular a fabric made of Aramid or Nylon fibres may be used as the carrier material. The preferred adhesive is a bituminous adhesive or an adhesive with a base of polyurethane. This material is used in particular in protective clothing.

  • Patent number: 6878407
    Abstract: The suede-like fabric according to the invention is produced by the process which comprises the steps of supplying aqueous chemical composed of acrylic resin, emulsifying agent and water to treating rollers through chemical coating means; passing the raw fabric cloths between the treating rollers having the chemical supplied and supporting rollers to produce a uniform chemical coating of 70˜200 g/m2, the rollers pressing and fixing the passing raw fabric cloths; de-watering and drying the raw fabric cloths having the chemical coating fixed under pressing in a thermal chamber maintained at a temperature between 80 and 200° C.; and heating and pressing the dried raw fabric cloths by means of heating rollers at a temperature between 130 and 150° C. to finish the acrylic coating through this ironing step; and a further step of rubbing-off the coated surfaces of the raw fabric cloths for abrasion by rotating a striker drum made of wood for a predetermined period.

  • Patent number: 6746974
    Abstract: The present invention provides a web material useful as a tack pad comprising a non-woven cross-laid web which is needle-tacked and at least one of chemically or thermally-bonded and at least one major surface of which is impregnated with a tackifier. The invention also provides a dispenser that will accept a stack of tack pads. The dispenser is shaped to contain a stack of tack pads in position over an outlet opening in the bottom of the dispenser and to permit one access to one edge of the bottom pad of the stack. The edge is located inside the dispenser and the dispenser comprises an at least partially open front and a door mounted on the dispenser. The door may be pivoted between an open position and a closed position over the front. The door has turned-back side edges to fit around the dispenser to prevent dust from entering the dispenser. The bottom pad can be pulled downwardly away from the stack through the outlet opening.
