DISPOSABLE ELASTIC BANDAGE Filed April 20, 1966 TTOR NE y United States DISPOSABLE ELASTIC BANDAGE John-A. Mortensen, Bound Brook, and De WittR. Petterqsou, North.Brunswick,gN.J.,- assignors to Johnson '&

11 Claims. (Cl.'f1 28-15 6) This invention relates to woven elastic fabrics. More particularly, it relates to open woven, disposable elastic fabrics having stiffness in they filling direction and which are suitable for, use as elastic bandages.

Elastic bandages are primarily used for Wrapping. injuries, suchas sprains, strains, twists, etc. When so used, it is desirable .that they meet certain prerequisites, such as adequatelycovering the area wrapped with the bandage, yet allowing penetration of air; providing support for the injured area while being conformable especially when used to wrap ankles, elbows, etc.; and in many instances the bandage must not prevent the wearing of apparel over the bandage, such asa shirt over a wrapped elbow or a shoe and sock over a wrapped ankle.

In some instances such bandages are used over and over again; however, there are times whenthe bandage must be considered. to be disposable, such as when placed on a patient by a hospital or doctor as the patient is being discharged. Y i

,The, bandages of the present invention are both elastic and disposable. Furthermore, they have good stiffness in the nonstretch direction (width) and provide excellent Support; They are comfortable'and will support elbows, ankles, etc. Furthermore, the bandages allow for the passage of -air,-.providing a cool, comfortable bandage, and provide suitable coverage, of the area wrapped. They are also neatenough-toconform to the body area in such a manner that shoes, shirts or other apparel may be easily worn over the bandage.

.The disposable elastic bandage of the present invention has from about 15 td 25,warp yarns per inch runningin the direction of the length of the bandage and from about 5 to 15 filling yarns per inch running in the direction of the width of the bandage.The warp and filling yarns are woven together in a balanced weave, preferably a plain Weave, and even more preferably a U1 weave, though any balanced weave, such as a basket weave, leno weave, etc., may also be used provided there are an equal number of yarn ends up as there are yarn ends down in the final woven fabric. The longitudinal edges of the bandage are sealed, such as by adhesive or by a leno weave or similar techniques, to prevent raveling of the bandage. The warp yarns are. stretch yarns selected from the group comprising core spun yarns and wrapped yarns. The outer covering of the yarns is preferably cotton, and the final yarn has a size of from about s to 30s. The stretch warp yarn should have an elongation of at least 110 percent. The warp yarns will usually have an elongation of from about 110 percent to 250 percent and preferably from about 150 percent to 190 percent. The filling yarns are nonstretch yarns, preferably of spun staple fiber. The filling yarns have a twist multiplier of from about 2.8 to 4.5 with the fiber having a denier of from about 5.5 to and a staple length of at least 2.5 inches.

By controlling the denier and staple length of the fiber used in the filling yarns and the twist of the filling yarns, in conjunction with the type of warp yarns used, the bandage may be made economically enough so that it is disposable and unexpectedly have filling stiffness and support suitable for elastic bandage purposes along with the other desirable properties of such a bandage.

The invention will be more fully described in conjunction with the accompanying figure which is a view in per- Patented Nov. 5, 1968' spective of one form of the disposable elastic bandage of this invention.

Referring to the figure there is shown a disposable elastic bandage 10 comprising stretch warp yarns 11 and nonstretch filling yarns 12 woven in a balanced 1/1 weave with the edge 13 sealed against raveling bythe warp and filling yarns on the edges being woven in a leno weave.

To provide suitable stretch along the length of the bandage the warp yarns must have high power, high elongation and high recovery. Suitable yarns having these properties are either corespun yarns or the wrapped yarns. Yarns such as Helanca yarns or the various texturized type of stretch yarns .do not have sufiicient elasticity, power and recovery for use. as elasticv bandages. Though an uncovered yarn may be used, it .is preferred that it be covered to give the final bandage an acceptable hand and to aid in the weaving ofthe fabric. The "preferable warp yarn contains a spandex core covered with cotton fiber. Another suitable core material would be rubber. Though cotton is preferred as the covering fiber, other fibers, such as rayon, nylon,"etc., may also be used, but for economical reasons, the cotton covering is preferred.

The number of yarns in the warp direction may vary from about 15 yarns per inch to about 25 yarns per inch, and preferably is in the range of from about 17 to 20 yarns per inch; The size of the warp yarns may vary from about 30's down to l0s. The stretch portion of the warp yarns should be about 20 percent by weight if a 30s yarn is used. The total denier of the stretch portion of the stretched fabric should be from about 495 denier per inch to 825 denier per inch andpreferably from about 560 denier per inch to 660 denier per inch.

It is important that both the size and the count of the warp yarns be in the ranges given above in order to provide adequate power, stretch and recovery properties and make the fabric economically disposable. If more yarns are used or finer yarns are used, the cost of the product becomes excessive, whereas if heavier yarns or fewer yarns are used, the product will not have the desirable power or cover properties'for an elastic bandage. I v

. A suitable warp yarn would be a denier spandex core stretched 4 times and spun into a 30s cotton yarn so that the final core spun yarn had the equivalent count of a 30s cotton.

Whether core spun or wrapped yarns are used, they should have an elongation of at least 110 percent. Stretch yarns having elongations of from 110 percent to about 250 percent have been found suitable for use in the elasticbandages of the present invention, and it is preferred that the stretch yarn have an elongation of from about percent to percent.

When using core spun yarns, the twist multiplier of the stretch warp yarn should be from about 3.5 to 5.0, and preferably from about 4 to 4.5. If the twist multiplier is increased from this range, the strength of the yarn is not satisfactory, and the bandage will roll or curl upon itself along its length, whereas if the twist multiplier is too low, the tensile strength of the yarn is unsatisfactory.

It is preferred that the filling yarns be spun fiber yarns. The preferred fibers are rayon fibers although nylon, poly .ester, or other suitable fibers may also be used. The filling yarns should have a size equivalent to about a 2s to 8s cotton yarn, and preferably from about 3s t0 6s cotton yarn. The number of yarns in the filling direction may vary from about 5 to 15 yarns per inch, preferably from about 8 to 10 yarns per inch. There must be 'a sufficient number of filling yarns to provide good cover and support, but the number of filling yarns must be kept to a minimum to make a disposable bandage. When using so few filling yarns, the denier of the fiber must be from about 5.5 to about 15, and preferably from about 8 to 15 denier, and the length of the fiber must be a minimum length is extremely important to proyide stiffnessin the filling'direction and su ort to the bandage without providing a fuzzy bandage.

When using yarns of the denier and staple length given above, it is'desirable that thetwist multiplier be in the range of from about 3.5 to 4.0. If a twist multiplier greater than 4.5 is used, the final bandage will curl and roll upon itself along its longitudinal edges, whereas if a twist multiplier lower than 2.8 is used, the bandage will not have sufficient support and stiffness for an elastic bandage.

The warp and filling yarns are woven together in a balanced type weave, such as a 1/1 weave, basket weave, leno weave or similar weave so that there are equal number of yarnfendsup as there are down, that is, there are an'equal number of yarns brought to one surface of the fabric as there are yarns brought to the other surface of the fabric. This is -desired in' order that the final bandage will have uniform support and cover and will also have a reduced tendency to curl. Furthermore, because 'of the few number of yarns per inch in each. direction, which is generally considered an open woven fabric, the balance weave is desired in order to produce good cover 'of the yarns while still maintaining suitable air and moisture permeability.

. The longitudinal edges of the fabric must be sealed against raveling. This may be done by a chemical bonding treatment, or if fabric is woven on a full width loom, then every few inches across the width of the loom, the fabric may be woven in a leno weave and slit along this weave into narrow fabrics so that the narrow fabric will not ravelalong its edges. If the fabric is woven on narrow looms, such as tape looms, the yarns edges may be tucked, etc., to prevent raveling as is common practice on these looms.

: The disposable elastic bandage of the present invention is considered an open woven fabric which gives a very low warp cover and has very little filling support from the warp yarns. The low yarn count and the types of yarns used make this fabric extremely economical. Unexpectedly when the filling yarns are spun fiber yarns using high denier fiber combined with a desired staple length, the fabric has excellent filling support. Also the spun yarns provide adequate bulk and cover in the final fabric which is generally lackinglbecause of the low end construction. By the use of the construction described above, a very comfortable and cool fabric is produced which conforms extremely well to even the most difficult areas of the anatomy, such as elbows and ankles. Furthermore, the fabric is thin enough and neat enough and provides suitable support so that few layers are required in a bandage wrap increasing the comfort and allowing apparel to be worn over the wrap.

One technique for controlling the fuzziness of the filling yarns is to singe the short ends of fibers which stick out from the yarn; however, this is an expensive process, and in order to make a disposable product, it is important that suitable staple length and fiber denier be used to avoid this singeing process. It is also important that disposable elastic bandages be made from materials which are not chemically treated. Chemical treatments may produce stiffness and other desirable properties of a bandage; however, chemical treatments are not desirable because of the medical end uses. The bandages of the present invention have no chemical treatments which might cause contamination and toxicity in the end product.

As many widely different embodiments of this invention may be made without departing from the spirit and scope thereof, it is understood that this invention is not to be limited by the specific embodiments thereof except as defined in the appended claims.
