TODAY’S PATENT – SLIP RESISTANT GLOVES
The SLIP RESISTANT GLOVES was invented by Michael D. Johnson (Coshocton, OH) on 4th of February 1986, bearing patent number US4567612A.
This invention relates to methods for producing a laminate useful in the manufacture of wearing apparel, for example, or floor coverings and to laminates so produced wherein a slip resistant or skid resistant gripping surface is required.
The surface of the invention provides a porous gripping surface particularly useful in greasy and oily environments where it is necessary for a workman to be able to grip mechanical devices or loose objects having a coating of oil or grease. The surface of the invention is a foam surface laminated to a substrate. The foam, prior to lamination, may be foamed with varying amounts of air depending upon the degree of abrasion resistance required. The foaming may be by mechanical or chemical means.
