|20130177750||Fiber-Reinforced Impact Resistant Laminated Panel - An impact resistant laminated panel and a method for making the same is provided. The panel includes in stacked order: a first side overlay layer, a decorative layer, a first side fiber-reinforced layer, a core layer, a second side fiber-reinforced layer, and a base layer. The decorative layer has at least one appearance sheet and at least one flattening sheet. The flattening sheet is disposed between the appearance sheet and the first side fiber-reinforced layer. The decorative layer has a sufficient mass to prevent the formation of surface flatness and/or appearance variations in the outer surface of the first side overlay layer, which variations are attributable to the first side fiber-reinforced sheet.||07-11-2013|
|20110073245||LEATHER LAMINATED DECORATIVE PANEL - A heat and pressure consolidated laminate, and method for producing the same, is provided that includes in superimposed relationship a decorative layer consisting essentially of a leather material, an underlay layer, a substrate, and an optional backer layer. The substrate has a first surface and a second surface opposite one another. The underlay layer includes one or more cellulosic sheets impregnated with a thermosetting resin, and is disposed between the decorative layer and the first layer of the substrate. The backer layer includes one or more cellulosic sheets impregnated with a thermosetting resin, and is disposed contiguous with the second surface of the substrate.||03-31-2011|
|20110017399||LAMINATED PANEL - A method for the production of a laminate is provided, comprising the steps of: 1) providing a stack of layers including a decorative layer, a core layer, and optionally an overlayer; 2) impregnating one or both of the decorative layer and overlayer with a resin formulation that includes nanoclay particles disposed within a thermoset resin, wherein the concentration of the nanoclay particles within the thermoset resin is great enough to form a physical barrier within the resin and low enough to avoid a hazy appearance; and 3) subjecting the stack of layers to sufficient heat and pressure to cause the layers to bond to one another. According to an aspect of the present invention, a laminate is provided producible by the above-described method.||01-27-2011|
|20100028628||FIBER-REINFORCED DECORATIVE LAMINATE - A fiber-reinforced decorative laminate, and a method for producing the same, is provided. The method includes the steps of: 1) stacking in a superimposed relationship a decorative layer, a fiber-reinforced core layer, and a barrier layer disposed between the decorative layer and the core layer; and 2) simultaneously curing, under heat and pressure, the decorative, barrier and core layers to create the fiber-reinforced decorative laminate. The decorative layer includes one or more decorative sheets, and is at least partially resin-impregnated and at least partially cured. The fiber-reinforced core layer has a texture, and includes at least one fiber-reinforced sheet that is substantially devoid of cellulose. The core layer is at least partially resin-impregnated and at least partially cured. The barrier layer is operable to substantially prevent the texture of the core layer from being apparent through the decorative layer in the cured fiber-reinforced laminate.||02-04-2010|
|20080268228||MULTI-COLORED DECORATIVE LAMINATE - A decorative laminate, and method for making the same, includes a core layer, a print layer, an overlay layer, and a luminescent layer. The print layer includes patterns printed thereon using conventional ink. In some embodiments, the overlay layer is impregnated with a resin that includes photoluminescent material of a single color which, when exposed to UV light, causes the single color to be visible throughout. The luminescent layer includes patterns of photoluminescent materials of different colors. In the embodiments where the overlay layer includes a resin with a photoluminescent material, the different colored patterns of the luminescent layer are simultaneously visible with the single color of the overlay layer when exposed to UV light.||10-30-2008|
