Guidelines for Trademark Class 17: Rubber, Asbestos and Mica

×

Table of Content


A trademark is an intellectual property regarding design, sign, logo, or expression that signifies the service or product of a particular source and distinguishes them from others. Trademark registration is about registering specific goods and services classified into 45 classes of Trademarks.

Before applying for registration of a trademark or a name under a class, identifying the particular class of trademark is necessary to ensure the benefit of maximum protection. If a trademark for goods and services identifies with different classes, you need to make separate applications to get the protection of the trademark for the respective services and goods. This article focuses on the class 17 trademark, which deals with rubber, asbestos, and mica.

Did you know? Trademark registrations help applicants to safeguard the logo. It also helps to avoid duplication of trademarks. 

The Trademark Class 17

Trademark class 17 includes semi-processed and unprocessed rubber, gum, gutta-percha, asbestos, mica, and necessary substitutes for these materials; resins and plastics in extruded form for manufacturing usage; stopping, packing, and insulating materials; flexible and non-metal tubes, pipes, and hoses.

Description 

To explain further, the class 17 trademark includes the following:

  • Gum, rubber, gutta-percha, mica, asbestos and goods manufactured from these materials and not included in any other classes;
  • Plastics in extruded form for manufacturer usage;
  • Non-metal flexible pipes;
  • Packing, insulating and stopping materials.

Explanatory Note

Trademark class 17 includes mainly thermal, electrical, and acoustic insulating materials and plastics, which are used in manufacturing in the form of blocks, sheets, and rods. This class particularly includes the following:

  1. The rubber material used for recapping tyres;
  2. Floating anti-pollution barriers;
  3. Padding and stuffing materials of plastics or rubber.
