A patent has been issued for foam-based fasteners fasteners
In construction, connectors between structural members. Bolted connections are used when it is necessary to fasten two elements tightly together, especially to resist shear and bending, as in column and beam connections. . The article has a mechanical fastener. It is comprised of a body portion, which may include a fibrous fibrous /fi·brous/ (fi´brus) composed of or containing fibers.
Composed of or characterized by fibroblasts, fibrils, or connective tissue fibers. landing layer. The fibrous landing layer is comprised of a plurality of fibers. The body portion may also include a foam layer, which has a first surface comprised of a plurality of free-stranding struts A framework for writing Web-based applications in Java that supports the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture. Struts is deployed as JSP pages using special tags from the Struts tag library, which includes routines for building forms, HTML rendering, storing and retrieving data and adapted for engaging at least a portion of the plurality of fibers of the landing layer. The foam layer and fibrous landing layer are capable of being engaged with a Shear Resistance of about 100 grams of force or greater per square centimeter and a Peel Resistance of about 50 grams or less of force per square centimeter.
