Fume 24.. 1924- G. s. x--RAZIERV CHAIR SEAT PAD OR CUSHION Filed Dec. 17. 1923 s-m. E


La? ffy/4 INVENTOR:

ATTOMVEY6 Patented June 24, 1924.



Application filed December 17, 1923. SeriaINo. 681,292.

To all whom t may concern.'

Be it known that'l, (uouur: S. FuAzlER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Sebring, in the county of Mahoning and State of Ohio, have invented new and useful Improvements in Chair-Seat Pads or Cushions, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to cushioned chair seat pads, and one object of the invention is to provide a molded sponge rubber pad which is comfortable and durable, capable of being washed without injury to maintain it in a sanitary condition, which will retain its shape and position on the chair, which will not pack or Wear in spots, and which will not unduly wear and gloss the clothes.

Another object of the invention is to provide a cushioned seat pad which may be furnished with a felt top so combined with the rubber body ofthe pad as to prevent it from loosening or peeling olf and which will give all the advantages of a felt pad with that of a base possessing maximum,

cushioning qualities.

The invention consists of the features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts, hereinafter fully described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, in which:-

Figure l is a top plan View of one form of cushion seat pad embodying my invention.

Figure 2 is a bottom plan View of the same.

Figure 3 is a transverse sectional view thereof, taken, for example, on line 3 3 o-f Figure l. v

In carrying. my invention into practice, I provide a chair seat pad or cushion l Vformed ofa body of molded rubber. The

molded composition employed is that known,

as sponge rubber producing a pad body which is stron durable and gives a highlyl desirable egree of cushioning action wlthout undue compression and distortion from its normal shape. Such a body will, therefore, provide an easy and comfortable seat surface, having the properties of retaining its shape and which will not pack to a' greater degree of density orwear olf in spots. The lower surface 2 of this body which engages the seat on which it is to repose is provided with fine longitudinal and transverse ribs, molded therewith, and producing a surface finish simulating that amount of the liqui 'forme of a coarse textile fabric, suclrsurface 2 thus acting as a friction surface having a certain degree of suction action, owing to the elasticity of the sponge rubber body, whereby through the combined action of frictlon and suction slipping of the pad out of its proper position on the chair seat will be effectually prevented.

The padv is so constructed as to give the combined advantages of a cushioned sponge rubber pad with that of a felt pad. To this end the pad is provided with a top surface layer 3 of felt or Ysome other suitable equivalent soft, durable and more or less elastic fabric. This felt layer may be comparatively thin and is incorporated with the rubber pad body in a substantially homogeneous manner. In applyin the felt layer to the sponge rubber bo y, the bottom'surface of said felt layer is first (primed withy a proper which is rubbed or frictionized into the same; the top surface of the pad body is then coated with a suitable amount of the same composition; the felt layer is then laid so that its coated face comes in contact with the coated face of it is firmly pressed down in position so that the coated faces 3a thereof adhere or are cemented together. This connection is then made ermanent by placing the pad so dp into a heater and subjecting the same to vulcanizing temperature for a period of from forty-live to sixty minutes, whereby the rubber composition uniting the -pad body and felt will be cured or vulcanized so as to form a solid unit. The felt layer will thereby be secured to the pad body against any possibility of Wrinkling, peeling or'otherwise getting out of shape or becoming displaced, producing an exceedingly strong and durable type of article. The use of a felt surface gives an attractive finish and produces a satisfactory type of chair seat pad which will not unduly wear or gloss the clothes of the user. The rubberizing of the felt also prevents its tion with water, and accordingly the, pad may be scrubbed or washed with soap or water whenever it is desired to cleanse it vand keep Ait-sanitary without in any manner the body, after which i complete satura,

rubber composition v readilv understood, and it will be seen that a t p of pad' is provided which will be soft an easy, and have a very desirable cushioning effect, and which at the same time will not pack or spread, but will preserve its shape under all conditions of service, which may be washed and ke t in a thoroughly sanitary condition, whic may be manufactured and sold at a low cost, andwhich will not slip upon the chair, thus avoiding the use of fastening means of any type for securing it in position.

Having thus fully describedl my invention, I claim As a new and improved article of manu- In testimony whereof I aix my signait ture.
