A trilobal or quadrilobal fiber formed from thermoplastic polymers, said fiber having a cross-section comprised of a central core having three or four T-shaped lobes, the legs of each intersecting at the center of said core such that the angle between the legs of adjacent lobes is from about 80.degr ...

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 ...

Scott L Gessner: Strong nonwoven fabrics from engineered multiconstituent fibers. Fiberweb North America, Bell Seltzer Park & Gibson, April 28, 1992: US05108827 (209 worldwide citation)

The present invention provides a thermally-bonded nonwoven fabric that is made from a web which comprises from 100 to 5 percent by weight of multiconstitutent fibers. The multiconstituent fibers are composed of highly dispersed blends of at least two different immiscible thermoplastic polymers and h ...
