6 Claims. iCl. c-isa) yes or rubberized canvas body and an elastic wrist member.
The principal objects of this invention are to provide simplicity and economy of construction, and efliciency and economy in procedure.
Other objects will appear from the following description and the accompanying drawing.
0f the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing the calendering of a sheet of knit fabric. comprising one step in the manufacture of the elastic wrist member of a glove'according to the invention.
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a tube of such rubberized fabric.
his. 3 is a similar view showing the tube doubled upon itself rubber side in to form the wrist member of a glove according to one embodiment of the invention.
Fir. to is a similar view showing the tube doubled upon itself rubber side out to provide a, modified form of wrist member.
Fig. i is a view showing the wrist member applied to the body of the glove.
his. 5 is a view illustrating the coating of the glove after the wrist member has been applied thereto.
d is a view of a finished glove in the preferred form.
ferring to the drawing, the numeral it deals-- notes the body of o mitten or clove, made of canvas or other fabric. it is customary to provide such gloves or mittens with an elasticmember ii. This wrist member is knitted portion attached to the body of clove by stitches if. on the wrist member is merely a knitted material, it becomes stretched with use,
ic ifiag not to lie compactly arod the wearers onto one face of the fabric. The rubber composition may also be applied by other methods, such as by sprees, if desired.
The coated fabric is cut in strips, which are I joined at opposite es, as by sewing or'cemeuting, to form tubular bodies It, as illustrated in Fig. 2, having the rubber coating H on the outside. The material of the tubular body is then cuffed upon itself as shown in Fig. 3 to form a doubled wrist member. As a modification of 5 the process, the rubber coating may be wholly or partially vulcanized before the doubled wrist portions are formed.
The doubled wrist portion II is then applied to a canvas glove body ill by stitching i2, Fig. 4. 1
in the production of the preferred form of clove, as illustrated in Fig. 6, after a glove has been produced as described above, it is placed upon a supporting form l1. and the form with the glove thereon is immersed in a solution or 15 dispersion of rubber composition l8, to provide a rubber coating is over the canvas, and preferably extending over at least the adjacent edge of the wrist member. This makes the entire glove waterproof and further unites the body and wrist 20 members. 'iihe glove is then vulcanized in any desired manner.
Where the portion is vulcanized before being assembled to the body member, or where the rubber in the wrist member becomes vul-' 25 conized during the vulcanization of a rubber coating on the body portion, the knitted wrist member becomes permanently elastic, due to the continuous layer of vulcanized rubber between the doubled piles of the wrist member and at- 30 toched continuously to the knitted material thf.
Where it is desired to provide a rubber outer surface on the wrist portion on the skin contactinw face and the outer face, thetube of Fig. 2 is ply doubled upon itself rubber side out as shown in big. to. in this embodiment, after the dipping step of Fig. 5. the glove is rubber coated entirely over its outside and over the skin-contoctine face of the wrist member, making the 40 fabric of the clove well protected by rubber.
i. The method of mowng a clove which cornp opplyinw a rubber coating to one side of so elastic fobric, doubwthe fabric with its cos feces in contact to form a tubular wrist covering, attach sold wrist covering to a glove body of textile materiel, applying a coating of rubber user the glove body and the seam unitin it to the t coverinw and yulcanizing the glove with the rubber coated wrist covering in its doubled form.
if. The method of mohiuu a clove which cornwe applyiuo a rubber coating to one side of an elastic fabric, doubts. the fabric with its so coated faces in contact to form a tubular wrist covering, attaching said wrist covering to a glove body of textile material, mounting the partially completed article so formed on a. supporting form to hold the article in proper shape, depositing a coating of rubbercomposition over the said glove body and partially over said wrist covering, and vulcanizing the glove with the rubber coated wrist covering in its doubled form.
3. A hand covering comprising a doubled wrist member of elastic fabric having a continuous coating of rubber composition encompassing the wrist member between its adjacent faces, and a body member of textile material secured thereto.
4. A hand covering comprising a doubled wrist member of knitted material having a continuous coating of rubber encompassing the wrist member between its adjacent faces, and a body member of woven material secured thereto.
5. A hand covering comprising a doubled wrist member of elastic fabric having a coating of rubber composition encompassing the wrist member between its adjacent faces, a body member of textile material secured thereto, and a coating of rubber composition applied to said textile material and over a portion of said wrist member.
6. A hand covering comprising a doubled wrist member of elastic fabric having a coating of rubber composition between the adjacent faces of its layers and encompassing the wrist member, a body member of textile material, and a coating of rubber composition applied to said textile material coextensive with it and overlapping the wrist member, the rubber coated wrist covering being vulcanized in its doubled form.
