ATTORNEY,

Patented May 9, 1939 UNITED STATES PATENT CFFICE WAX CHARGED APPLICATOR PAD 4 Claims.

rIhis invention relates to waxing pads which are charged with a content of expressible wax material which, in the use and manipulation of the may be exuded from the operative face of said pad when the latter is rubbed upon and over a surface desired to be wax polished.

This invention has for an object to provide a novel form and construction of hand manipu. latable pad or applicator comprising, a porous face member which may be made of textile material, felt, natural or articial sponge material, or any other material through the interstices or pores of which the wax may be dispersed and exuded therefrom, said face member being provided with a backing member of wax impervious sheet material which is more or less flexible, and which is embossed to provide reserve wax storage elements opening toward the facing member; said storage elements being manipulatable by the fingers of the hand in which the pad is held and by which it is manipulated in operation, so that pressure may be exerted, at will, upon said elements, to force wax therefrom into the applicator facing member in renewal of the Wax exuded from the latter during use of the pad.

Other objects of this invention, not at this time more particularly enumerated, will be understood from the following detailed description of the same.

Illustrative embodiments of this invention are shown in the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. l is a back face View of one form of wax charged applicator made according to this -invention; and Fig. 2 is a transverse vertical section therethrough, taken on line 2-2 in said Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a back face View of another form of the wax charged applicator according to this invention; and Fig. 4 is a transverse vertical section through the same, taken on line l-ll in Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is a fragmentary back face view of still another form of the wax: charged applicator made according to this invention.

Fig. 6 is a fragmentary sectional view of another modiiied form of the wax charged app1icator pad.

Similar characters of reference are employed in the hereinabove described views, to indicate corresponding parts.

The novel wax charged applicator pad, in the form thereof shown in Figs. 1 and 2, comprises an applicator body or face member lil. This applicator body or face member may be made of any suitable'soft porous material. For example, a brous or felt-like material is well adapted to (Cl. lll-54.7)

serve the purpose, since the pores or interstices thereof permits the same to be charged with a content of soft wax adapted to be exuded from the exposed or operative face thereof by pressure exerted thereupon when the pad is rubbed across a surface to which it is desired to apply the wax. Among other materials which may be used for said applicator body or face member l@ may be mentioned knitted or woven textile material, natural or artificial sponge, and, in fact, almost any kind of comparatively soft material through the body of which extend interconnected interstices into which the wax may be filled, and from which said wax may be exuded at the exposed or operative face thereof. The applicator' body or face member i0 may be made of any desired peripheral shape and of suitable surface area.

Superposed upon the back face of said applicator body or face member l0 is a backing member H, the same corresponding in peripheral "Y sewn therethrough adjacently along the registered marginal portions thereof. suitably secured to the pad body thus formed is a transverse hand attachment band or loop i3, arranged to extend across the pad back, and beneath which the hand of the user may be inserted so as to hold the pad thereto in use.

Said backing member is provided with a plurality of storage elements I4, the same being formed by outwardly pressed portions of the sheet of which the backing member is made, so as to provide reserve wax holding cavities i5 having their open sides or mouths disposed along the inner face of the backing member and contiguous to the opposed inner face of the applicator body or face member I0. Packed into the cavities I5 are masses of reserve wax l.

In the arrangement of said storage elements i4, as shown in Figs. l and the same are provided in the form of elongated longitudinally disposed hollow bosses which are spaced laterally apart to provide intervening finger receiving spaces il. When using the pad thus formed,

ie operator initially disposes the fingers of the hand employed in manipulating the pad in the finger receiving spaces Il', and thereupon rubs the pad back and forth over the surface to which it is desired to apply the polishing wax. Under these conditions, the wax content dispersed through the interstices of the applicator body or face member Ill will rst be exuded therefrom.

When the applicator body or face member, by such operation, tends to be exhausted by exudation of its wax content, the operator may shift the fingers of the pad manipulating hand so as to engage therewith the storage elements I4, and, by exerting pressure thereon express from the cavities I5 thereof some of the reserve wax I6, which is thus forced into and through the pores or interstices of the applicator body or face member I!) in renewal of the wax previously discharged therefrom. It will be obvious, that by thus manipulating the flexible walled storage elements I4 from time to time renewed supplies of wax may be delivered into the applicator body, or face member I at need, until nally the entire initial and reserve wax content of the pad is exhausted.' It will be obvious that the dispositional arrangement, spacing, and conformation of the wax storage elements I4 is subject to considerable variation.

In Figs. 3 and 4, there is shown a modified form and arrangement of wax storage elements, he same comprising a multiplicity of more or less closely spaced hollow embossments I8 open toward the applicator body or face member IQ, the cavities of which contain the reserve wax masses. In the use and manipulation of this type of pad, the operator initially presses the pad to the surface to be treated with but little pressure, so that the initial wax content of the applicator body or face member is first expressed. As such initial wax content tends to become exhausted the operator will increase the pressure upon the pad back which will tend to collapse the flexible wall embossments I8 so as to drive the reserve wax therefrom and into and through the applicator body or face member ID.

In Fig. 5 there is shown another arrangement of reserve wax storage elements which, in this case, comprise rib-like embossments I9, which subject to manipulation in substantially the same manner as last described.

In Fig. 6 there is shown another arrangement of reserve wax storage elements. In this arrangement a wax carrier member 20, having formed 'therein by collapsible embossments 2l of suitable shape, a plurality of reserve wax pockets or cavities 22, in which the reserve wax masses 23 are stored. This carrier member 26 may be made of paper or like sheet material, and the same is disposed intermediate the pervious applicator body or face member 24 and an impervious backing member 25. In the use and manipulation of this type of pad, the operator also initially presses the pad to the surface to be treated with but little pressure, so that the initial wax content of the applicator body or face member is first expressed, whereafter by increasing the pressure the reserve wax 23 is forced from the pockets or cavities 22 into and through the applicator body or face member.

From the above description it will be apparent that a novel means for providing a waxing pad with a reserve wax supply is furnished, and it will be understood that in specific form the embossed reserve wax containing cavities formed in the wax impervious backing member are subject to a great variation, and that in this and other respects many changes could be made in the above described constructions, and many apparontly widely different embodiments of this invention could be made without departing from` the scope thereof as defined by the following claims. It is therefore intended that all matter contained in the above description or shown in the accompanying drawing shall be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

I claim:

1. A wax charged applicator pad comprising, an applicator body of porous character, a wax material dispersed through the interstices of said body for exudation from. the outer face thereof, an external impervious backing member of sheet material secured to said body contiguous to the inner face thereof, said backing member having formed therein a plurality of hollow flexible walled storage elements providing cavities having open sides opposed and contiguous to the inner face of said body, and reserve wax masses contained in the cavities of said storage elements, subject to expression therefrom into and through said applicator body by direct manipulation of the flexible walls of said storage elements.

2.
