Title (EN) WOVEN FABRICS PARTICULARLY USEFUL IN THE MANUFACTURE OF OCCUPANT SUPPORT STRUCTURES
(FR) TISSU PARTICULIEREMENT DESTINE A LA FABRICATION DE STRUCTURES DE SUPPORT POUR PASSAGERS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A fabric particularly useful in the manufacture of occupant support structures is described. The fabric is desirably leno woven to have a high degree of openness and such that at least a plurality of te yarn intersections are stabilized from relative motion. The fabric includes elastomeric synthetic yarns in at least one fabric direction. At least some of the points of yarn intersection can be supplementally stabilized from relative motion, such as through the use of bicomponent yarns having a sheath which is melted to secure intersecting yarns together. The fabric is also resistant to ultraviolet irradiation so that it retains its physical properties after accelerated exposure to UV irradiation. The fabric provides good support and ventilation, and is suitable for use as a surface fabric in automotive and seating applications.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un tissu convenant particulièrement à la fabrication de structures de support pour passagers. Ce tissu de gaze à grandes mailles est stabilisé au niveau de nombreuses intersections de fils de façon à interdire les déplacements relatifs. Les fils de chaîne ou de trame sont en matière synthétique élastomère. En outre, certaines intersections de fils peuvent être encore plus stabilisées contre les déplacements relatifs par l'utilisation notamment de fils bi-composants dont la gaine est fondue fait tenir les fils les uns aux autres au niveau de leurs intersections. Ce tissu qui résiste aux ultraviolets, conserve ses propriétés physiques après une exposition importante aux ultraviolets. Assurant une bonne tenue et une bonne ventilation, il convient comme tissu de surface pour les applications de l'automobile et de la sellerie.
