To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, DEL ROY F. FOWLER, a citizen of the United States of America, and resident of Melrose Park, Montgomery County, State of Pennsylvania, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Packing Material for Upholstery, of which the following is a true and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawing,-which forms a part thereof. i
'My invention relates to a packing material for use in upholstery and is especially intended for use in stufiing relatively long and narrow pockets such as are commonly The object 'of my invention is to provide a strip of folded fibrous batting of a cross section ada ted to fill the cross section of such, a pocl et which will have sufficient tensile strength to prevent the tearing of the packing strip under the strains to which it is subiected in the operation of stufling the poc cets and which will have its other folded edge so secured to the underlying fold as to. prevent or minimize the tendency of such folded strips of batting to unduly expand laterally and get out of shape.
The nature of my inventionwill be bestunderstood as explained in connection with the drawings which is a cross section of. a packing strip embodying my invention.
In the drawing, A indicates a strip of paper forming the core of the packing strip. B indicates the central portion of a strip of fibrous batting which lies below the paper strip and B, B are the edges of the battin strip, the edge B being folded down over the paper strip and the edge B being folded down over the edge B' O indicates a layer of glue on the under side of the strip A which I preferably use to secure the strip A. to the underlying layer B and D indicates a layer of glue which I use to secure the edge of the overlying bat layer B to the underlying bat layer B, and it is in the use of this gluelayer that the essent ally novel feature of my invention c0ns1 sts.
ting. My packing strips are of the general I character of the padding described in my Patent No. 1,332,550of March 2, 1920, but
is distinguished from this old construction and from the modified forms of such padding which have gone into use bythe use of the glue layer D impregnating and firmly securing together the edge of layer B and the underlying'layer B.
Having now described my invent-ion, what I claim as new and desire to secure '66 by Letters Patent, isi
1. A packing for use in stufling uphols'tery consisting of a strip of paper in combination with a strip of fibrous batting folded around the paper strip and with one edge folded over the other and a layer of glue directly securing the outer edge of the folded bat to the underlying bat'layer and permeating both bat layers.
2. A packing for use in stufiinguphol- 75..
story consisting of a strip of paper 111 combination with a strip of fibrous batting folded around the paper strip and having its central portion secured to the under side of the paper strip by glue, said fibrous bat having one edge folded over the other above the paper strip and a layer of glue directly securing the outer edge of the folded bat to the underlying bat layer and permeating both bat layers.
