"lClaim, ll

` rIhis invention `relates to Aimprovements 4in a mounting vand mounting yassembly `for adhesived articles-'and more particularly to ra mounting arrangement `for articles carrying yan adhesive surface of the character that adheres on contact, the linvention being 'highly vdesirable `for use in connection with the mounting of corn, vcallus-and 'fbunion pads, although the invention will 'have 'other uses and purposes and maybe used for mount-ingother-adhesived -articlesyas will be apparent'to 'one skilled in the art.

In thepast, manyand various types of mount- -ings v'for adhesived darticles have been developed, with'the objectsin mind of maintaining the adl"hesived surface "of the articles in good #condition -until the-articles were used, and with making it easy for a user to remove (an article from Va -jmounting--memben Onelform -oi mounting mem- "ber'previously -developed yembodied a corrugated 1;aa1oer, with ythe vcorrugatons or lflutes therein s,

running transversely to the paper stock and parallel to each other. The adhesived article was placed iupon the ridges oi VAthe llutes, and it was alleged'that when the paper was stretched so Aas "to flatten 'it out and-eliminate the flutes or pcor- '-rugations, the article would 'be released. Suche device afforded no protection for the adhesived surface of the article, but lefttlie major portion of that surface `exposed to ithe air. Objection- 'able difficulty vwould be experienced for such a device of that character in properly placing the v adhesived articles, especially if these articles were in the lnature Aci corn or callus pads, upon Athe lmounting member in suchmanner as to'be easily removed. Again, if theentire mounting assembly ,was accidentally squeezed, the .corrugations -would be flattened, Vthe adhesivied articles set 'tightly to flattened or Asemi-flattened corrugations and it would be exceedingly diilicult to remove the articles.

l With the foregoing in mind, itis an object of the instant invention to provide an economical 'mounting member for corn, callus Aand bunion pads or other adhesived surfaced articles which rnot only protectsthe -adliesived'sur'faceo'f the 'article, but permits a lrelatively easy removal of *the article from the mounting member.

Another object of the` invention is the provi- 4sion yei a mounting member 'for articles having yan -adhesived surace th'ereonfwhi'ch mounting member 4corn-prises a relatively 'unstretcha-ble and 'irregularly crink-led sheet of material.

A further object of the invention resides-'in lvthe provisionlof .a mounting member ier articles having Iadhesived Surfaces, comprising a` sheet o'i 'relatively sti irregularly crinkled paper.

Still another object of the 'invention resides Iin fthe provision :of a mounting member ier adhesive surfaced articles, which mounting member: v

-60the member. lt is preferable, Ythat `this memmay be a sheet of parchment-like paper; relaf2 tively stii, and unstretchable, and irregularly corrugated so that the article when placed upon fthe `mounting :memberby virtue/of the'adhesived surface on the article, 'will bein Contact asto vpositive adherence onlyy with the high spots on the mounting member.

A 4rfurther object I'oi vthe invention resides 'in the provision of amounting assembly Kfor corn, callus or bunion padsand similar'adhesivelysurfaced articles, including an irregularly crinkled iece of parchment-like material, with for without `a glazy surface, with the articles attachedto the mounting member by virtue ofthe adhesived 'surfaces and with the -adhesived surfaces vcon'- -tacting only :the high Aspots lon the mounting member r`insofar as positive adherence Ais concerned.

It is la still A'further object of Ithe invention to provide a mounting-assembly foradhesiv'ely sur- :faced'articles such as'rcorn, callus or Abu'nion pads Vand the like, which'includes an'irregularly crinl'kled piece of relativelyunstretchable paper, with an article attached thereto v"by `virtue oi the ad- 'hesived surface, the outer 'marginal `portion of the adhesived surface being pressed 'into intimate contact with the mounting member, leaving the interior portion of the adhesived surface in a relatively'free state.

It is also a feature 'of this Iinventi'onto provide a lmounting assembly for corn, callus or bunion pads and the like, which pads have an adhesived -suriaceof the character that adheres on contact, including a mounting member 'of irregularly crinkled vegetable 'parchment having a glazy surface to'whichthe articles are attached in such 'manner that 'the ad'hesived surface of each article has positive `adherence only `with the high spots on the mounting member.

While'some of themore salient features, characteristics and advantages of the instant invention have been above pointed out, others will become apparent from rthe following disclosures, taken in 'conjunction with the accompanying drawing, 'in which:

Figure 1 is a fragmentary Atop plan view of a mounting assembly 'embodying principles of the instant invention;

' Figure 2 4is an venlarged vertical sectional view taken longitudinally through vone of thepads and -*the `mounting member oi Figure 1; Aand Figure 3 isa iragmentary exaggerated showing of vthe left-hand portion vof the structure vof Figure 2.

As shown on the drawing In the illustrated embodiment of the instant invention, the mounting member, for purposes of clarity, has been 'illustrated inv a greatly exaggerated manner, especially as to the thickness of ber be only of the thickness of a piece of reasonably stiff paper stock.

In the illustrated embodiment of the invention there is shown a mounting member, generally indicated by numeral I, which comprises a sheet of material irregularly crinkled as indicated at 2, and preferably relatively unstretchable. A satisfactory example of the material that may be used is a vegetable parchment including a body 3 having a glazy surface, as exaggeratedly indicated at 4, which glazy surface may be on both sides of the material, if so desired. It will be understood, of course, that other forms of material besides vegetable parchment may be used, a parchment-like material being preferable by virtue of the ready glaze obtainable on the surface. It is further preferable that the mounting member be sufficiently stiff so that a pull r force exerted upon the material substantially in the plane of the material and equal to a force capable of being urged by the average human being with his thumbs and fingers, will not be suilicient to flatten the crinkles in the material. In other words, taking hold of the sheet of material I with both hands at spaced points, and exerting a pull upon the material would not tend to release or loosen an article adhesively attached to the material. Using a paper of the character of vegetable parchment or equivalent substances, provides an extremely economical backing member, and one that may be readily cut into any desired size. In addition, such a paper would be suilciently tough to resist accidental tearing in most instances.

The crinkles 2 are preferably of sucient height to be readily noticeable by even the most casual observer, and to provide depressed spaces therebetween. These crinkles are also irregular, that is they run haphazardly in substantially any direction and need not have any particular pattern relatively to either axis of the sheet of material.

In making a mounting assembly, a backing member, such as the backing member I, may be cut to a desired size, and a plurality of articles each having an adhesived surface of the character that adheres on contact, may be adhesively stuck upon the backing or mounting member. This provides an easy method of packaging the adhesive surfaced articles for sale since the entire assembly may be very readily encased in a suitable folder or box to provide a pleasing packet for the ultimate consumer.

In the illustrated instance, a plurality of corn or callus pads generally indicated by numeral are shown attached to the mounting member l. With reference more particularly to Figures 2 and 3 it will be seen that in the illustrated instance each of the pads 5 is substantially oval in shape and includes one or more layers of cushioning material 5, centrally apertured as indicated at l to provide an opening for the reception of a corn, callus, bunion or the like. Over the major portion of the cushioning part 6 and over the entire aperture 1 a suitable cover piece 8 is disposed which may be of soft felt-like material, or a waterproof material as may most be desired. The cushioning portion 6 is provided on its under face with an adhesive surface 9, which may be adhesive of a character of zinc oxide, and which adheres on contact with some other body. The degree of adherence, of course, is determined to some extent on the amount of pressure used when applying the pads to some other body, either a mounting part, or to the human body.

In the instance of the mounting member I, each part is preferably placed upon the mounting member with a reasonably gentle pressure so that the adhesived surface 9 only adheres to the high spots on the mounting member defined by the crinkles 2, as seen more clearly in Figure 3. Between the adherence at the high spots, there will be regions perhaps of contact with extremely light adherence, or regions where the adhesived surface actually fails to touch the mounting member, as indicated at l0 in Figure 3. It is preferable that positive adherence occurs only on the high spots of the mounting member.

It may be desirable, in some instances, in order to better preserve the adhesived surface 9 in the event it is not contemplated that the pad be removed and used for a length of time, and this may readily be accomplished with the present invention. It is a simple expedient in applying the pad to the mounting member to provide a definite pressure around the margin of the pad, and such pressure may also be around the inner margin of the cushioning material. If applied in this manner, the pad will positively adhere to the mounting member throughout its entire marginal portion, as indicated at Il and I2 in Figure 3, with the interior portion of the adhesived member either out of contact with the backing member or adhering only very lightly to the backing member. Thus, this interior portion of the adhesived surface is sealed on' from the surrounding air and should remain in its original condition for a considerable length of time.

With positive adherence only at the high spots of the mounting member, and even with the continuous marginal contact just above described, it is relatively a simple operation to remove a pad from the mounting member. It is only necessary to insert a fingernail adjacent the edge of the pad, and lift it from the mounting member. With a glazy surface such as a parchmentlike material provides, there should be no trace of the former presence of the pad after it has been removed.

It will be understood that various adhesively surfaced articles, and corn, callus and bunion pads of various types, sizes, shapes and construction, may be utilized with the mounting member herein set forth. It will further be appreciated that not only the mounting member, but the entire assembly of mounting member and pad or other article is extremely economical, both as to original cost, and as to the labor incurred in formulating the assembly. Further, the adhesived surface of the pad or other article is protected by the mounting member to substantially a full extent, even though there may be light adhesion or no adhesion between the surface of the mounting member throughout the major portion of the surface. This protection will obviously be greater than that provided by the commonly known crinoline backing for adhesively surfaced articles, and the pad is easier to remove than from most of the backing or mounting members used heretofore.

It will, of course, be understood that various details of construction may be varied through a wide range Without departing from the principles of this invention and it is, therefore, not the purpose to limit the patent granted hereon otherwise gian necessitated by the scope of the appended aim.

I claim as follows:

In combination, a sheet of relatively unstretchable and irregularly crinkled paper-like material having a glazed surface, and a surgical pad carrying a pressure sensitive adhesive with the outer marginal edge of the adhesive in continuous contact with the irregular surface of said sheet therearound to preserve and keep sanitary all the adhesive, and with the remainder of the adhesive adhering only to the high spots of said sheet.
