Dennis L Krueger, Daniel E Meyer: Bicomponent fibers and webs made therefrom. Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company, Donald M Sell, Roger R Tamte, January 3, 1989: US04795668 (212 worldwide citation)

Biocomponent fibers, and webs made therefrom, are taught in which one component of the fibers is a crystallizable material. When a web of the fibers is heated in a mold above the temperature at which crystallization occurs, the fibers tend to be set in the position they are held in the mold. A prefe ...
