  • Patent number: 11131060
    Abstract: In a skin material, a front face of a first fibrous base material is a first color and a front face of a second fibrous base material is a second color. The second fibrous base material is laminated on a back face of the first fibrous base material. A through hole of the first fibrous base material penetrates the first fibrous base material in a laminating direction. A dimension of the through hole in a first direction is set to a first value (N1). A dimension of the through hole in a second direction is set to a second value (N2). A dimension of the through hole in the laminating direction is set to a third value (N3). The first value (N1) and the second value (N2) are set to be 0.38 times or more and 12 times or less with respect to the third value (N3).

  • Publication number: 20150086758
    Abstract: Unique blends of fibers that incorporate synthetic cellulosic fibers to render fabrics made with such blends more durable than fabrics made with natural cellulosic fibers such as cotton. While more durable than cotton, the synthetic cellulosic fibers used in the blends are still inexpensive and comfortable to the wearer. Thus, the benefits of cotton (affordability and comfort) are still attained while a drawback of cotton—low durability—is avoided. 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. The fiber blends disclosed herein may be used to form various types of FR fabrics.

    Abstract: The security packaging device according to the invention consists of a known cut-resistant textile structure having integrated conductive thread layers which, in the event of mechanical loading, trigger an alarm signal. When cut-resistant knitted spacer fabrics are used, the inner surfaces of the top side and the entire underside or the inner surfaces thereof are conductive. Additional weft insertion threads, which are parallel to the spacer threads, are arranged as spacers between the top side and underside, in order to prevent any unintentional contact if pressure is applied.

  • Patent number: 8597762
    Abstract: A preform made of composite material designed to be formed on a laboratory model and to be integrated in a base plate of a dental prosthesis. The preform comprises a grid formed by a meshing of weft threads and warp threads coated in an impregnating resin, the space between the meshes being exempt of fibers and resin, and determining a surface of free spaces of more than 25% of the total surface of the grid. The weft threads are fixed onto the warp threads at the nodes of the meshing to enable the preform to be handled and to be formed on a laboratory model, without the impregnating resin creeping into the spaces of the meshes.

  • Publication number: 20130317120
    Abstract: The present invention relates to compound of formula I, which are functionalized, non-phenolic amino acids, and polymers formed from the same. Polymers formed from the functionalized amino acids are expected to have controllable degradation profiles, enabling them to release an active component over a desired time range. The polymers are also expected to be useful in a variety of medical applications.

  • Publication number: 20130315963
    Abstract: Novel absorbable polymer blends are disclosed. The blends are useful for manufacturing medical devices having engineered degradation and breaking strength retention in vivo. The blends consist of a first absorbable polymeric component and a second absorbable polymeric component. The weight average molecular weight of the first polymeric component is higher than the weight average molecular weight of the second polymeric component. At least at least one of said components is at least partially end-capped by a carboxylic acid group. Further aspects are medical devices made therefrom.

  • Publication number: 20130273297
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to multiple-layer composites suitable for use as floor-coverings in the form of cut tiles or broadloom sheets, providing a durable and highly stable structure that can lay flat and remain flat with variations in temperature and humidity and provide a durable and yet soft textile face. The composite comprises a laterally-compressible fabric face bonded with an adhesive layer to a highly conformable stress-absorbing cushioning layer. The face fabric comprises closely packed looped yarns reciprocating between the top and the bottom of the fabric, protruding into the adhesive layer and emerging from the adhesive layer to the surface forming micro-spring structures. The weight, properties, density and level of penetration of adhesive are controlled to maintain lateral compressibility for the entire composite and avoid warping.
