Title (EN) WRITING DEVICE WITH DEFORMABLE GRIP AND METHOD OF MAKING SAME
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ÉCRITURE COMPRENANT UN SYSTÈME DE PRÉHENSION DÉFORMABLE ET PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION ASSOCIÉ
Abstract:
(EN) A hand-held writing device is provided that includes a writing implement, such as a pen, pencil, stylus, or marker, and a deformable grip that envelops a section of the barrel of the writing implement. The deformable grip forms an air gap between the grip and the barrel of the writing implement. The deformable grip includes a viscoelastic polymer that does not spontaneously deform at room temperature and that, when deformed, recovers its initial shape at room temperature in 5 seconds or greater. Also provided is a method of making the same.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un dispositif d'écriture portatif comprenant un élément d'écriture, par exemple un stylo, un crayon, un poinçon ou un marqueur, et un système de préhension déformable qui enveloppe une section cylindrique de l'élément d'écriture. Le système de préhension déformable forme un espace vide entre l'élément de préhension et le cylindre de l'élément d'écriture. Le système de préhension déformable comporte un polymère viscoélastique qui ne se déforme pas spontanément à température ambiante et qui, une fois déformé, retrouve sa forme initiale à température ambiante en l'espace de 5 secondes ou plus. L'invention concerne également un procédé de fabrication de ce dispositif.
