Title (EN) THERMAL ICE SCRAPER
(FR) GRATTOIR CHAUFFANT
Abstract:
(EN) A thermal ice scraper (100) includes a body portion (110), a blade portion (120), and a heatable material (150) in the body portion (110) that can heat the edges of the blade portion (120). The body (110) and blade portions (120) may be permanently or removably attached, and a conductive element (230) may be included to aid in transferring heat to the edges of the blade portion (120). When in use, the body portion (110) is heated in a microwave oven, causing the heatable material (150) to become hot. This heat is then transferred to the edges of the blade portion (110). The thermal ice scraper (100) is held in a hand and used to scrape a smooth surface, such as an automobile windshield. The blade portion (120) allows multi-directional usage of the scraper (100), and the heat along the edges of the blade portion (120) facilitates the removal of frost, ice, or snow. The body portion (110) comfortably accommodates the hand.
(FR) Grattoir chauffant (100) comportant une partie de corps (110), une partie de lame (120) et un matériau chauffable (150) dans la partie de corps (110) pouvant chauffer les bords de la partie de lame (120). Le corps (110) et les parties de lames (120) peuvent être fixées de façon permanente ou amovible, et un élément conducteur (230) peut être inclus pour faciliter le transfert de chaleur aux bords de la partie de lame (120). Pendant l’utilisation, la partie de corps (110) est chauffée dans un four à micro-ondes, ce qui a pour effet de réchauffer le matériau chauffable (150). Cette chaleur est alors transférée aux bords de la partie de lame (110). Le grattoir chauffant (100) est tenu dans une main et utilisé pour gratter une surface lisse, comme un pare-brise de véhicule. La partie de lame (120) permet un usage multidirectionnel du grattoir (100), et la chaleur le long des bords de la partie de lames (120) facilite l’enlèvement du givre, de la glace ou de la neige. La main se loge confortablement dans la partie de corps (110).
