Class Information
Number: 400/241.4
Name: Typewriting machines > Including interposed inking device (e.g., ribbon) for record-medium > Ribbon, per se > Particular ribbon material > Including ink-impervious backing for ribbon
Description: Subject matter wherein the ribbon* has first and second surfaces, the first surface contacting a record-medium* to imprint a character* by transferring ink* from the ribbon to the record-medium when the second surface is contacted by a type-face*, and wherein the second surface of the ribbon is formed of a substance through which ink is incapable of passing to preclude direct contact of the type-face with ink.
