TISSUE PAD v Applicationnled `lJ'xim-lary 9, 1929, Serial No. $341,339. Renewed April 16, 1931.
.The object of my invention is to provide i Y ,a pad of facial tissue of novel form, whereby the pad may be carried in a vanity case in the samemanner as a powder puff, re-
quiring little if any more room, althoughv providing a substantial rsupply ofvfacial tissue.
My invention also provi-des a novel method of making `such ads whereby the cost o 10 of the tissue inpad orm is'but/'little more than in sheet form in which` it is Snow supplied. p My invention, is lillustrated in the ac panying drawings wherein Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing the manner of using the pad;
gig. 2 is lperspective view of a typical pa'` Fi 3 is a cross section through the-corner t ereof; C p' l. Fig. 4 is a plan view of the pad showing f used for cutting the pads; and.
l Fig. 6 is a cross-sectionthrough tin dies on the line l6- 6 of Fig. 5.
he pad is composed of about seventy-five sheets of the so-called facial tissue. The i pads may be of various sizes, Fig. 2l of the drawing showing -in full lscale v a pad'of average size.l
shaped as shown, that is,l squarel or rectangular with one rounded corner, as indicated at 1, with the sheets adhering together' along the edges 2 and 3 which meet at the rounded j corner. Near the rounded corner the sheets are pressed togetheras ,shown at 4, for the double purpose of causing the sheets to better adhere and also to give a certain amount of stiffness tothe pad at this corner whereby it may conveniently be gripped when using the'pad.
`The two rounded edges of the pad andthej eye or pressed portion are formed atv one operation of a stamping press. N oadhesive or moisture is required. The soft sheets under the pressureof the die are caused .to
#- adhere together to such an extent that the how-the sheet of tissue after being used, is j removed from the pad; y,
Fig. 5 is a plan view of onev ofthe dies` the cutof the pad are preferably ing the fact that facial tissuesheets are very soft andl of little tensile strength, even 'as compared'withv ordinary tissue paper. This is due to the fact that no adhesive is used between the sheets, the sheets being held together by the-interlocking fibres of the sheets themselves which readily come apart when the-sheet is lifted oil' the pad as indicated. A -In making up the pads a block ofthe desired'number-'of sheets, say -seventy-five, four times the size of the finished pad, is subjected to a vsingle operation of a cutting die ofthe shape indicated in Fig. 5, thereby Ysimultaneously forming the rounded corners, adhering edges and eyelets of four pads at each operatic l v shown, the upper and lower dies are each providedwith cutting knivesl 6 projecting '.from the face of the dies. The knives are exactly opposed so'that the edges come togetherupon `the operation of the press,
thereby pressing the sheets I together before actually cutting through v them.
. Each of these dies is also -provide'd with4 four raised portions 7 for pressing the sheets together near the rounded corners. In the' pad illustrated in the'drawings these pressed-together portions are in the form of a washer `or, eyelet, the ,center of the circle `being punched out by a punching die 8. The pressed-together portion, however, may be of an ldesired shape, and the die may be provi ed with raised letters 'for embossing the trade-mark of the manufacturer or `other appropriate insignia veach operation of the die. ne of the dies is also preferably provided with an'ejector 9 for punching out the center of the block l,Q f sheets which is cut out by the dies in when folded or hunched togethers-e ough to gon the pads at grasp, does not afford adequate surface. ,Y Insheets by means of knives which ccanpressv stead, the entire pad is used in the manner the edges of the sheets into adhering con-1 `mamita indicated in Fig. l, by taking hold of it at tact as the-pads are cut.-
the rounded corner where the eyelet is 1ocated. This stiffer portion afforded by the 11er that substantially the whole'surface of the sheet is available. Also the thickness i lsoiled sheet is .removed from the pad and thrown away, leaving a fresh sheet exposed ready for use'.
I claim: l
1. A padof facial tissue comprising a plu-v rality of sheets havingtheir edges `held together along one edge solely by the interlocking libres 0f the sheets. i
2. A pad of facial tissue v.consisting of a plurality of sheets, Fthe lsaid sheets being felation pressed together in :adhering through a portion of limited area'.
3. A pad of facial tissue consisting of a plurality of sheets, the said sheets being pressed together in adhering relation through a portion of limited corner of the sheets.
4. A pad of facial tissuel comprising a plu1 ralityof sheets havingtheir edges held together along `one edge solely bythe 'interlocking'ibres of the sheets, the said sheets being pressed together in adhering relation 4 through a portion of limited area.
5. A pad of facial tissue comprising a.- plurality of sheets havingtheir edges heldtogether along two meeting edges 'solely by the interlockingfibres of the sheets.
6. A pad of facial -tissuecomprising a plurality of sheets having their edges held together along two meeting edgessolely by the interlocking libres of the sheets, the saidY sheets being pressed together in adhering relation through a portion of limited area near the meeting edges.
7. The method of producing facial tiri-ue" pads which comprises stamping such 'pads out of a block of sheets by means of-kniy'es which compress the edges of the sheets intel adhering contact as the pads are cut.
f 8. The method of producing facial tissue: y
pads which comprises stamping such' pads out of a block of sheets bygmeans of .knives which compress the edges of the sheets into i adhering contact as the pads are out, and
simultaneously pressing the sheets together at a point of limited area to form a stiifened portion and cause'the sheets to-adhere together. Y
9. The method of producing facil tissue pads which comprises simultaneously stampiing a plurality of pads out of a block of eyelet may be easily vgripped in such man` In testimony whe reef I ailia my signature. KURT WANDEL.
