For anchoring carpeting such as of the artificial turf type, or the like, to other such carpeting or to an anchoring device, scrim carrying separable fastener means in the form of an extruded strip having an attachment flange along one edge engaged with one face of a margin of the scrim and resiliently flexible rib and groove fastener profile structure extending longitudinally along an opposite edge of the strip and adapted to be interlocked with complementary fastener profile structure. A bonding ribbon is engaged with the opposite face of the scrim margin and is bonded to the attachment flange through openings in the scrim margin. A method of making the carpet anchoring assembly is adapted to be practiced in apparatus which provides for extrusion of both the fastener strip and the bonding ribbon toward the scrim margin and effecting thermoplastic bonding between pressure rolls as the scrim moves along a continuous fabrication path.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
