A fabric fastener suitable for industrial use such as for fixing a porous working element to a rotor of a polisher, in which a male member has at least two groups of projections on one surface thereof, a first group having a hook or mushroom shape and a second group having a straight needle shape and a taller height than the projection of the first group, thereby the needle shape projection positively penetrates the interior of the porous mating member, while the hook or mushroom shape projection passively engages with a recess or a gap of the mating member, thus ensuring a proper engagement between both members.
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.
