  • Patent number: RE33206
    Abstract: A male urinal device (10) is disclosed. Device (10) includes a laminated sheath (14) having an inner layer (26) of latex rubber and outer layer (28) of silicone rubber. Adhesive (24) is stored between the inner and outer layers (26, 28) when sheath (14) is rolled.
