Abstract

This technique is for forming a solvent and acid resistant glove. A glove-type configuration is made by vacuum forming a piece of TEFLON* into the shape of the user's fingers and palm. The glove-type configuration is heat-sealed onto a flat film backing member preferably of the same material. Sealing the flat film backing member to the glove-type configuration provides a final glove that permits greater flexibility of motion to the user. Also, tearing of the glove due to friction is prevented. Tearing occurs in the usual glove where joining seams interfere with each other. Preferably, F. E. P. TEFLON is the material used for both the glove-type configuration and the flat film backing member.

TEFLON is the material used for both the glove-type configuration and the flat film backing member. This is a thermoplastic material capable of being readily joined together upon heat treatment at a temperature of about 550 degrees F. *Trademark of E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Co.
