For automotive interior trim molding assemblies having a vinyl skin shell, a reinforcement insert, and an intermediate reaction type polyurethane foam composition, a vinyl skin shell which has a gasket-type peripheral edge formed thereon for abutting cooperation with the reinforcement insert to prevent leakage of the foam therepast during the foam reaction period in a reaction mold.

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.
