Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9937259A1] The present invention relates to an improved method of manufacturing a disposable cervical cap by injection molding and cervical caps produced thereby. The method includes providing an injection point at a top portion location of a heated mold cavity and injecting an elastomeric molding material into the heated mold cavity at the injection point. The material flows downwardly throughout the mold cavity, producing a molded cap (10) having a substantially thickened annular rim (18) and a form-assuming dome (12) with a generally thickened top portion (20) having an interior and exterior surface and a substantially thin middle portion (22).
