(under the class definition) Coating apparatus combined with means to alter the shape of the base either before, during or after the coating operation.
(1) Note. Distortion of work incident to the handling thereof is excluded from this subclass, as is the mere flexing between opposed members of textile work in the presence of coating material to facilitate penetration of the coating material. To be placed in this subclass the work must be deformed from its normal state, for example, as by embossing of sheet-form work or untwisting of the strands of rope-form work.
