Title

(FR) GREFFON TUBULAIRE TISSE A ZONES DE SOUPLESSES VARIABLES
Abstract
(EN)
A woven tube (56) having warp direction oriented lengthwise to the tube (56) and fill direction oriented circumferentially of the tube (56) is disclosed. The tube (56) is woven from a plurality of elastic warp yarns (57) arranged parallel to the warp direction and a plurality of elastic fill yarns (59) arranged parallel to the fill direction. The tube (56) has one or more discrete regions (58,62) of relatively greater flexibility formed in either the warp or fill directions at locations along the tube (56). The flexibility is oriented in the warp direction of the fill direction by weaving either the warp (57) or fill (59) yarns, respectively, under relatively less tension.

La présente invention concerne un tube tissé chaîne en long à trame circulaire. Ce tube est fait d'une pluralité de fils de chaîne élastiques parallèles venant dans le sens de la chaîne et d'une pluralité de fils de trame élastiques venant dans le sens de la trame. Dans sa longueur, le tube comporte au moins une zone isolée d'une souplesse relativement supérieure dans le sens de chaîne ou de trame. Pour obtenir cette souplesse supplémentaire, on choisit de moins tendre le fil de chaîne ou de trame selon le cas pour le tisser.
