  • Publication number: 20120021662
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a laminated material and a method for making the same. The laminated material includes a main layer, a surface layer and an adhesion layer. The main layer at least includes a first polymer resin. The surface layer is disposed on the main layer, the material of the surface layer is a second polymer resin, and the solid content of the second polymer resin is less than that of the first polymer resin. The adhesion layer is disposed under the main layer, and the material of the adhesion layer is thermoplastic resin which is adhesive when being heated, so that the laminated material can be directly attached to another element, thereby simplifying the process and reducing cost.

  • Publication number: 20110283458
    Abstract: A method of producing a ticking includes laminating a flame retardant backer to film material, wherein the backer releases flame retardant in the vapor phase that reduces the rate of flame propagation along the film material, when the ticking layer is exposed to flame. The backer is laminated in direct contact with the film material. In some embodiments, the laminated ticking is configured to release less than 15 MJ of heat in the first ten minutes when exposed to a flame in accordance with the testing protocol set forth in 16 CFR 1633. Upholstered articles, such as mattresses, mattress foundations, and articles of furniture, may incorporate the ticking layer.

  • Patent number: 8062985
    Abstract: A flexible composite multiple layer fire-resistant insulation structure has a primary facing surface and a secondary facing surface. There is at least one dimensionally stable membrane having a primary membrane surface and a secondary membrane surface. At least a portion of the secondary facing surface is attached to the primary membrane surface. There is also at least one lofted insulative layer having a primary insulative surface and a secondary insulative surface. The at least one woven fabric facing layer may be formed of various materials, including amorphous silica glass and S-glass fiberglass. Different weaving patterns may be used to weave the facing layer. The facing layer may include a fire resistive treatment, which may in turn include a phosphate containing compound, and more particularly, may include dicalcium phosphate. In certain embodiments, multiple layers of the above are provided, and the structure may be enclosed in an abrasion resisting sheath.

  • Patent number: 8057887
    Abstract: Disclosed are composite laminates that can exhibit high strength and/or low dielectric loss and can also be lightweight. The laminates include layers formed of high modulus polyolefin fiber. The fibers can be woven or knit to form a fabric or can be included in a nonwoven fabric that can be one or more layers of the composite structures. The layers including the high modulus polyolefin fibers can include other fibers, such as fiberglass. The composites can also include layers of other materials, for instance layers formed of polyaramids, fiberglass, or carbon fiber wovens or nonwovens. The composites can advantageously be utilized in low loss dielectric applications, such as in forming circuit board substrates, or in applications beneficially combining strength with low weight, such as automobile and boat materials.

    Abstract: The present invention provides an impact resistant sheet material that helps provide exterior walls of a building with resistance to impacts so that the building structure can meet building standards, such as the Miami-Dade County Large Missile Impact Test, for resisting impacts in high wind areas. In one embodiment, sheet material comprises an impact resistant layer that attached to fibrous substrate. The impact resistant layer provides impact resistance to the sheet material so that a wall structure employing the sheet material is able to successfully withstand an impact from a projectile comprising a 9 pound, 7 foot two-by-four (“2×4”) traveling at a speed of at least 34 miles per hour. The impact resistant sheet material may comprise a moisture vapor permeable, water-impermeable barrier layer having a hydrohead of at least 55 cm and a moisture vapor transmission rate of at least 35 g/m2/day. Such a sheet material is particularly useful in barrier applications, such as a house wrap.
