Title: (DE) MEHRKAMMER-TUBE MIT AUSGABE DES INHALTS DURCH PRESSEN
(EN) PLURAL CHAMBERED SQUEEZABLE DISPENSING TUBE
(FR) TUBE DISTRIBUTEUR PRESSABLE A PLUSIEURS COMPARTIMENTS
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to plural compartment assemblies in which materials are stored in at least two separate compartments until the compartments are opened for use. More particularly, the invention relates to a dispensing tube with the utilization of a novel insert divider (22). A conventional dispensing tube (10) can be divided into separate and discrete compartments (fig. 4) at a low cost. The resulting dispensing assembly (fig. 1) provides for dispensing more than one material from the same tube, and even more particularly co-dispense predetermined proportions of incompatible materials simultaneously and effectively.
(FR) Cette invention, qui porte sur des ensembles à plusieurs compartiments dans lesquels sont emmagasinés des produits dans au moins deux compartiments distincts jusqu'à leur ouverture pour utilisation, concerne plus particulièrement un tube distributeur employant un nouveau moyen de séparation inséré (22). On peut, en l'occurrence, diviser un tube distributeur classique en compartiments distincts et séparés (fig. 4) et ce, à faible coût. L'ensemble distributeur ainsi obtenu (fig. 1), grâce auquel il est possible d'extraire du même tube plus d'un produit, distribue, notamment, des quantités prédéfinies de produits incompatibles, simultanément et efficacement.
