Integrally molded sweeping implement

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #5072479.

A sweeping implement is disclosed comprising an elongated head having an upper surface and a lower surface, a socket on the upper surface for attaching the head to a broomstick, and bristles projecting from the lower surface, wherein the head, the socket and the bristles are in the form of an integral moulding of a polymeric material and wherein the socket is provided with resiliently flexible retaining means on its inner surface for counteracting the removal of the broomstick from the socket. Some of the bristles may conveniently be of smaller diameter and others may conveniently be of larger diameter. The polymeric compound may comprise rubber and may be pre-formulated such that, upon vulcanization, the sweeping implement has a Shore hardness, as measured on the A scale, of between 35 and 65 and an elongation at break of between 550% and 650%.
