Title (EN) THREE-DIMENSIONAL STRUCTURES USEFUL AS CLEANING SHEETS
(FR) STRUCTURES TRIDIMENSIONNELLES UTILES EN TANT QUE TEXTILES D'ENTRETIEN
Abstract: front page image
(EN) Disclosed are cleaning sheets having substantial macroscopic three-dimensionality. Optionally, the macroscopically three-dimensional cleaning sheets can comprise a contractable material (e.g., a scrim material), which when heated and then cooled contracts so as to provide a macroscopic, three-dimensional structure. Macroscopic three-dimensionality is described in terms of 'average peak-to-peak distance' and 'surface topography index', as well in terms of 'average height differential'. Also disclosed are cleaning implements comprising a handle and the described cleaning sheets. Processes for the sheets, benefits of the processes, and articles of manufacture are also disclosed.
(FR) Cette invention se rapporte à des textiles possédant une structure macroscopique sensiblement tridimensionnelle. Lesdits textiles d'entretien à structure macroscopique tridimensionnelle peuvent comporter une matière susceptible de se contracter (par exemple, une matière à fibres enchevêtrées) qui, lorsqu'elle est chauffée puis refroidie, se contracte de manière à former la structure macroscopique tridimensionnelle. L'aspect macroscopique tridimensionnel est décrit en termes de 'différentiel moyen de hauteur' et de 'distance moyenne crête-à-crête'. L'invention se rapporte également à des instruments de nettoyage comportant une poignée et les textiles d'entretien précédemment décrits. L'invention se rapporte enfin à des procédés d'utilisation de ces textiles d'entretien, aux avantages présentés par lesdits procédés et aux articles fabriqués correspondants.
