To all whomjt may concern: i I
Be it known that we, SAMUELCOHEN and SAMUEL KILBERG, both. citizens of the United States, and residents of the city ot New York, borough of. Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and Stateof" New York, have invented a new and Improved Quilted Waterproof Pad, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact descri tion.
The invention rela s to quilted waterproof pads.
An object of the invention is to provide a simple and eflicient pad ofquilted material provided with a waterproof surface for use in connection with beds, tables, cribs, and mattresses; for use as baby bibs and diapers, for use as doilies, waterproof vests, and in sheet and yard goods, and for use as sanitary slippers, bath mats, automobile radiator pogers, sanitary protectors, aprons, and the A further object concerns the provision of a simple quilted pad properly waterproofed, which will have all the advantages of a soft cushion for use in the various above-mentioned connections, in addition to waterproof qualities, wherever to the necessity for a soft cushion or layer of material is added the requirement to avoid injur due. to the presence of liquid.
g further object concerns the provislon of a simple quilted ad which is constructed in such a manner t at it is very flexible so that it may be used in other forms than mere flat sheeting, thereby adapting it for a wide variety of uses.
The invention is illustrated in the drawings, in whichigure 1 is a plan view of the device showing the waterproof side uppermost;
Fig. 2 is a plan view of the reverse side;
Fig. 3 is a section taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.
The form of the invention shown in the drawings is a preferred form, although 1t is understood that modifications in the construction and arrangement of the parts and in the character of the materials used ma be adopted without departing from the spirit of the invention as set forth in the appended claim.
In its general as ects the invention comprises two layers 0 muslin or similar material with an interposed layer of wadding or similar .material. These three layers are suitably quilted together bystitching .or
other means. One of the layers of muslin or similar material is then treated in any desired or well-known manner withrubber, for. the purpose of waterproofing it; Preferablythe rubber is incorporated more or less'intimately with thematerial of the muslin layer in accordance with any one of sev eral well-known methods. By thus asso ciating the quilted layers with a layer of waterproofing on one side, we combine in one single pad or sheet of any desired form and flexibility, a soft flexible cushion, which has the further advantage of preventing the objectionable contact of liquid with the surface against which the pad may be laid.
In the preferred form of the invention as disclosed in the drawings, 1 represents preferably the bottom layer of the pad and is generally of some material such as muslin; 2 is an intermediate layer of preferably white wadding or similar material, 3 being the upper layer of muslin; 4.,is the outer layer of rubber, which may be, and preferably is incorporated more or less intimately by one method or another, with the upper layer of muslin. The two layers of muslin and the intermediate laver of wadding are preferably stitched together to give the same a quilted effect, by means of stitching 5. When the device is thus far finished, its edges are preferably bound with suitable tape material 6 to prevent the wadding from coming out, and to give the edge a firm, lasting character, and this tape material is bound or stitched to the edges of the pad by means of stitching 7.
This singledevice combines the advantages of an ordinary quilted pad with those of a rubber sheet formed in one article, a device which may be used in place of the two hitherto used separately. Some of the advantages of this device over plain quilted pads are as follows:
(1) As a protector for tables, the-plain quilted pad would protect the table only y from scratching and heat, whereas this pad will also protect the table from hot or cold water, because preferably in this case the rubber side would be laid against the table surface.
(2) As a bed sheet or mattress protector which is used mostly for sanitary pu s, the liquids will not penetrate throng the oF'FIcE. I
rubber sheet, which is preferably faced downward to the mattress or bed, and, the
' use of the pad thereby eliminates the sepa- .be protected essary with the ordinary pad to use a rubber sheet, whereas here the separate rubber sheet is taken care of in the rubber surface on one side of the pad.
(4) In connection with the use of the pad .as a diaper or an apron or vest, the same 15 idea is incor orated-that the clothing will 10m liquid,while, at the same time, the quilting of the other art of the pad will provide sufiicient warmt Whet is claimed is:
A bordered quilted waterroof pad which comprises-a pair of s aced' ayers of fabric with a layer of padding therebetween, said three layers being quilted together, and a layer of rubber 1n the form of a coating upon and" suitably incorporated with the outer face of one side of said quilted material, and over and covering the quilting thereof, whereby the pad at the coated side is water-proof throughout including the quilting stitches.
