Title (EN) VEHICLE FLOOR COVERING WITH INTEGRAL THREADED DRAIN TUBE AND METHOD OF MAKING SAME
(FR) REVETEMENT DE PLANCHER DE VEHICULE COMPORTANT UN TUBE DE VIDANGE FILETE SOLIDAIRE ET PROCEDE DE FABRICATION
Abstract:
(EN) A molded floor covering (10) for a vehicle floor includes a thermoplastic polymer layer with an integral, threaded drain tube (15) extending therefrom. The drain tube is configured such that a distal end thereof can extend through a drain hole in a vehicle floor when the floor covering is installed within a vehicle. The drain tube includes a threaded bore that is configured to receive a correspondingly-threaded drain plug (16) therein. A method of producing a molded floor covering having an integrally formed, threaded drain tube includes providing a mold having a contour of a vehicle floor with an outwardly projecting threaded member. A layer of thermoplastic polymer is vacuum formed over the mold and around the threaded member such that the layer follows the contours of the mold and threaded member to form an elongate tube extending therefrom.
(FR) L'invention concerne un revêtement (10) de plancher moulé pour planchers de véhicules, qui comporte une couche polymère thermoplastique, un tube de vidange fileté solidaire (15) saillant de cette dernière. Le tube de vidange est conçu de façon que l'extrémité distale puisse passer dans un orifice de vidange dans le plancher d'un véhicule lorsque le revêtement de plancher est installé dans un véhicule. Le tube de vidange comprend un alésage fileté conçu pour y recevoir un bouchon de drain (16) fileté de manière correspondante. L'invention concerne un procédé de production d'un revêtement de plancher moulé comportant un tube de vidange fileté solidaire. Le procédé consiste à fournir un moule correspondant au contour du plancher d'un véhicule et ayant un élément fileté saillant vers l'extérieur. Une couche de polymère thermoplastique est formée par aspiration au-dessus du moule et autour de l'élément fileté de façon que la couche suive le contour de ces derniers afin de former un tube allongé saillant de ces derniers.
