|20130209735||PROTECTIVE MATERIAL HAVING GUARD PLATES WITH IMPROVED SURFACE PROPERTIES - In some examples, the disclosure relates to a fabric assembly comprising a flexible substrate including a top surface; a plurality of plates affixed to the top surface of the flexible substrate and arrayed in a pattern such that a plurality of continuous gaps are defined between adjacent plates; and a coating formed on at least one of the substrate and plurality of guard plates, wherein the coating is selected to increase at least one of scuff resistance, oil resistance, water resistance, stain resistance of the fabric assembly.||08-15-2013|
|20100158697||MULTI-ROTOR VERTICAL AXIS WIND TURBINE - New aerodynamically improved rotors for use in vertical axis wind turbine (VAWTs) are disclosed. In some examples, the VAWT rotors include one or more blades with an aerodynamic front shape with low drag coefficient and a blunt or concave back shape that effectively catches the wind. Example rotors can be used by themselves or in conjunction with vertically attached rotating airfoils. The new rotors add to the overall energy production while acting as supports for the vertical airfoils. Furthermore, the new rotors provide energy in low wind speed conditions where the vertical airfoils are ineffective and can act as jump starters for the vertical airfoils. Guy wire structures for stabilizing VAWTs are also disclosed. The structures allow for reduced construction costs for a given tower height compared to conventional HAWTs and allows for taller towers for a given construction cost. The overall stability under wind gusts is improved by the guy wire design||06-24-2010|
|20090142535||SUPPLE PENETRATION RESISTANT FABRIC AND METHOD OF MAKING - A puncture, pierce, and cut resistant fabric comprised of a plurality of sheets of plates arranged in a repeating pattern. A material interconnects the plates. The fabric is twistable, bendable, and flexible. It is constructed of substances that will withstand cutting, puncture, and piercing forces encountered in medical or other environments.||06-04-2009|
|20090007313||CUT, ABRASION AND/OR PUNCTURE RESISTANT KNITTED GLOVES - An improved protective knitted glove assembly includes a knitted glove and two or more non-coplanar arrays of printed guard plates. The guard plates are small, regularly-spaced, generally uniform thickness, non-overlapping, hard polymer material members arranged in a predetermined pattern having an area parallel to a surface of the glove with major and minor dimensions. The major dimension to minor dimension aspect ratio of the guard plates is between about 3 and 1. The overall abrasion resistance of the glove assembly is substantially greater than an abrasion resistance of the knitted glove without the guard plates.||01-08-2009|
|20080282455||FLAME RESISTANT AND HEAT PROTECTIVE FLEXIBLE MATERIAL WITH INTUMESCING GUARD PLATES AND METHOD OF MAKING THE SAME - A protective material comprising a flexible substrate including a top surface and a plurality of discrete guard plates affixed to the top surface in a spaced relationship to each other. The guard plates comprise a material which significantly expands upon the addition of sufficient heat forming a thermally insulating, flame retardant layer.||11-20-2008|
|20080206526||PROTECTIVE MATERIAL HAVING GUARD PLATES ON CLEARLY VISIBLE SUBSTRATE - A supple, globally flexible, composite protective material having guard plates on a substrate with a clearly visible pattern. The substrate is flexible and has a surface with a colored pattern including two or more colors. The guard plates are small, non-overlapping, printed resin material members having major and minor dimensions and are arranged in a predetermined pattern over a substantial portion of the surface of the substrate. In one embodiment of the invention the guard plates are transparent or translucent to visible light so that the colored pattern on the surface of the substrate is visible. In another embodiment the colors of the guard plates blend in with the colored pattern of the substrate.||08-28-2008|
