Patented, multi-axial filament network comprising two sets of unified linked filaments that distribute tension between directionally opposed members within a plexus. XhelX merges seamlessly with a wide range of pattern variations and generates material that is aesthetically unique, structural, flexible and conformal.
Patterned Plexus of Filaments, Method of Producing and Articles Containing Patterned Filaments
US 20140377488 A1
Disclosed herein is a plexus of filaments which is composed of groups of filaments, whose filament members are linked together, in a repetitious pattern, and whose filaments may be interlaced or linked to bisecting groups of filaments, creating a patterned plexus whose filament members generally follow spiraling paths, while linking with neighboring filaments, creating a group, or interlaced groups, of tension distributive filaments within a plexus of filaments; said plexus exhibiting greater conformal and constrictive qualities in comparison to the prior art. Also disclosed is a method of producing filament structures for a variety of uses including composite structures with tension displacement properties, and sporting goods requiring conformal load distribution with minimal weight; such as, running shoes.
