    Abstract: The present invention teaches a vehicular upholstery PPT-fiber fabric that is formed from a double woven fabric in which a face weaving textile design has a number of intersections, called warp up intersections where a warp yarn passes over a weft yarn, and these are more than the number of intersections, called weft up intersection, where a weft yarn passes over a warp yarn. The warp yarn is formed by twisting an intermingled yarn composed of a PPT-multi-filament yarn and a high heat shrinkable PET-multifilament yarn whose shrinkage percentage in boiling water is more than 15%. An intermingle ratio of the PPT-multifilament yarn of the warp yarn is more than the intermingle ratio of the PET-multifilament yarn of the warp yarn. In the warp yarn, the PET-multifilament yarn is shrunk by heating, so that the substantial length of the PET-multifilament yarn becomes shorter than the substantial length of the PPT-multifilament yarn. The weft yarn is composed of PPT-multifilament yarn.

Within the scale of the press pad, the strands making up the core lie substantially parallel to one another and to the longitudinal axis of the core. In use, therefore, when pressurized in the laminate press, the core structure collapses as the strands making up the core move relative to one another and the core tends to flatten out.

The fabric includes in a first embodiment a woven fabric comprising weft and warp yarns containing glass fibers. A portion of the weft yarns are undulated, resulting in an increased thickness for the fabric. The fabric is coated with a polymeric resin or bonding agent, for substantially binding the weft yarns in the undulated condition. This invention also includes methods for making such fabric by increasing the thickness of a woven or non-woven material by such methods as applying tension during weaving operations, or using unbalanced yarns.

  • Patent number: 7759266
    Abstract: A conveyor belt reinforcing fabric weave is disclosed, having a plurality of center tension warps crimped about a plurality of middle wefts. Upper and lower wefts lie above and below the middle wefts. The upper and lower wefts are in opposition to each other and in non-opposition with the center wefts. Binder warps are interlaced above and below the central tension warps in alternating sequence, with at least one of the binder warps interlacing upper and lower wefts other than those interlaced by an adjacent binder warp. Interlacing of the middle wefts by the central tension warps locks the wefts in place, providing enhanced resistance to faster pullout. The lack of straight tension warps provides a highly flexible fabric that can be used in multi-ply applications. A conveyor belt incorporating one or more plies of the inventive fabric is disclosed, as is a method for manufacturing the belt.

  • Patent number: 7732356
    Abstract: A fabric having balanced stress-strain characteristics in the warp and weft directions. A method of processing the fabric includes overfeeding a woven fabric web along a first direction at one or more steps of a treatment process to facilitate crimping of the woven fabric web in the first direction. The overfeeding is indicative of a predetermined differential between a feed rate and a process rate at the one or more steps. The differential is adapted to cause the crimping in the first direction to substantially match a the level of crimping in a second direction.

  • Publication number: 20100136311
    Abstract: A fabric, in particular for shading purposes, formed of interwoven warp and weft threads based on fluoropolymer plastics, wherein the fabric includes an upper side and an underside having colors that are different from one another. The fabric is interwoven from the warp and weft threads in a three by three twill weave with step two, wherein the warp threads and (n+2) consecutive weft threads are made in the color of the upper side of the fabric and n following consecutive weft threads are made in the color of the underside of the fabric and n is an integer greater than or equal to 1.

  • Patent number: 7687414
    Abstract: A union fabric comprising 6 to 60% by weight of a polyester fiber (A), 35 to 85% by weight of a halogen-containing fiber (B), and 5 to 55% by weight of a cellulose fiber (C) in which fabric the warp comprises weaving yarn containing the polyester fiber and the weft comprises flameproof chenille yarn and other weaving yarn, with the chenille yarn containing 10 to 70% by weight of halogen and 1 to 35% by weight of a flame retardant consisting of a metal compound, and in which fabric the content of the warp-constituting weaving yarn containing the polyester fiber is 20 to 40% by weight and those of the weft-constituting flameproof chenille yarn and the weft-constituting other weaving yarn are 35 to 70% by weight and 10 to 45% by weight respectively. This union fabric is excellent in design, texture, comfortableness in use.

  • Patent number: 7670660
    Abstract: A two-layer secondary carpet backing including a woven scrim layer and a fibrous layer is described. The woven scrim layer is characterized as having a low open area and a flat weave. The two-layer secondary backing is capable of having a non-abrasive, textile back surface. The secondary carpet backing is also capable of having a construction that permits high carpet manufacturing speeds due to high air permeability and is capable of providing high dimensional stability, seam strength, and delamination strength to tufted carpets made therefrom.

  • Publication number: 20090029617
    Abstract: The present invention provides a layered product, which, when processed into a textile product by sewing, fusing, or the like, overcomes such a practical restriction that a knit must be used on the side to be subjected to a sealing treatment, makes the sealing treatment easier, has intact appearance and touch feeling, and is lightweight. The layered product comprises a flexible film and a woven fabric layered thereon at the side to be subjected to the sealing treatment in processing the layered product into the textile product. The layered product has a total cover factor (CFtotal) from 700 to 1400, calculated from the cover factors of the warp and the weft constituting the woven fabric.
