  • Patent number: 10800349
    Abstract: An automobile interior trim has a resin core material and a skin material that is joined on a surface of the resin core material. The automobile interior trim has stitches that are formed on the skin material by sewing the skin material with threads. The skin material and the stitches are cut by a laser beam to generate a cut section. The vicinity of the cut section has a structure in which threads of the stitches and the raw material of the skin material are melted by heat of the laser beam, mixed together, and solidified.

    Abstract: A multi-layered sheet material for wrapping metal goods to protect them from corrosion during storage has a water impermeable and water vapor-impermeable outer layer comprising a coated woven scrim and a water-impermeable and water vapor permeable inner layer comprising a micro-perforated film. The inner layer incorporates corrosion inhibitors. The outer and inner layers are bonded along their longitudinal edges leaving a space between the layers into which water vapor can migrate away from the wrapped metal product.

  • Patent number: 7803723
    Abstract: The present invention provides glass fiber fabric reinforcements, cement boards, and glass fiber coatings for such reinforcements. The glass fiber fabric reinforcement includes a glass fabric containing multiple yarns containing glass filaments and a polymeric coating disposed onto the multiple yarns to form a coated glass fabric. The polymeric coating comprises a polyolefin based copolymer composition whereby the glass fabric has a Gurley Stiffness measurement of about 100-3000 mg and an ASTM D 638 (2% Secant) modulus of compression of about 1-100 MPa. The reinforcement is sufficiently drapable and lacking in shape memory so as to be curved around the edge of a cement board during the manufacture of same.

  • Patent number: 7786026
    Abstract: The present invention provides thickened fabrics and reinforcements for use as a spacer or reinforcement for a matrix system. 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: 7772136
    Abstract: A roofing underlayment comprises a reinforcing layer, which is extrusion coated on at least one side with an anti-slip coating layer. Preferably, the reinforcing layer comprises a woven polyethylene or polypropylene scrim. The anti-slip coating layer comprises a compound based on a styrene and ethylene/butylene-styrene, S-E/B-S, block copolymer, such as the compound sold under the trademark KRATON® MD6649. The anti-slip coating layer is low in cost and helps prevent water from penetrating the primary roofing material. In addition, the anti-slip coating layer provides an improved anti-skid surface upon which an individual may safely walk.
