  • Patent number: 10808054
    Abstract: A method of making expanded fluoropolymer articles thermally bonds portions of expanded fluoropolymers together, without using an adhesive or crushing force, to produce stronger bonds at the joint between the expanded fluoropolymers than the bonds within the constituent expanded fluoropolymers. The method involves placing the portions of expanded fluoropolymers to be thermally bonded together in intimate contact with each other after wet-stretching the expanded fluoropolymers, and removing the wetting agent used to wet-stretch the expanded fluoropolymers, without subsequent expansion or stretching, to yield an expanded fluoropolymer article exhibiting unexpected and superior properties that can be used in a variety of medical and industrial applications.

  • Patent number: 10596790
    Abstract: Disclosed is a multilayered elastomeric article with hydrophobic polymers as a patient contacting surface, hydrophilic polymers as a wear contacting surface, and a blend of the hydrophobic and the hydrophilic polymers as an intermediate layer between two contacting surfaces. The article has low water absorption of the patient contacting surface to prevent virus penetration and a textured surface of the wear contacting surface to reduce the friction force between hand and glove surface. The hydrophilic polymers in wear contacting and intermediate layers of the article can increase water absorption and boost leaching effectiveness. High water absorption minimizes the uncomfortable feelings from excessive sweating. Increased effectiveness in leaching makes the article less cytotoxic. A method for making the disclosed elastomeric article is also provided.
