Abstract: front page image
(EN)This invention relates to a seal (10) for sealing a container. The seal (10) includes a foil (12) with at least one aperture (16) extending through the foil, and a selective membrane (18) which seals the at least one aperture (16) in the foil. The selective membrane (18) is liquid-resistant and gas-permeable. When attached to a container the seal (10) allows air to pass into or out of the container and stops collapsing or bulging of plastics containers when being moved from higher to lower and lower to higher altitudes.
(FR)Cette invention concerne un opercule (10) servant à fermer un récipient. Cet opercule (10) comprend un support (12) comportant au moins une ouverture (16) s'étendant à travers le support, ainsi qu'une membrane (18) sélective servant à fermer la ou les ouvertures (16) du support. Cette membrane (18) sélective est étanche et perméable au gaz. Lorsqu'il est fixé sur un récipient, l'opercule permet à l'air d'entrer ou de sortir du récipient et empêche ainsi les récipients en plastique de s'écraser ou de gonfler lorsqu'ils montent ou descendent en altitude.
