Shelf Liner With Natural Fibers

February 17, 2009

In combination, a shelf and a shelf liner have been issued a patent. The shelf liner is in the form of a single layer of sheet material defining a skid-resistant first major surface contacting the shelf and a decorative second major surface. The second major surface is uppermost and the shelf liner comprises a single layer of scrim and a foamed resin in contact with the scrim that defines the first major surface. The scrim comprises fibers and the resin is discontinuous on the scrim such that at least a portion of the scrim fibers is visible on the second major surface. Open pores extend from the first major surface to the second major surface. The foamed resin is thicker, on average on a side of the scrim adjacent the second major surface, than on a side of the scrim adjacent the first major surface.
