Title (EN) RECLOSABLE CONTAINER WITH RESEALABLE FLEXIBLE COVER AND METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING THE SAME
(FR) RÉCIPIENT REFERMABLE À COUVERCLE FLEXIBLE REPOSITIONNABLE ET SON PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION
Abstract:
(EN) A reclosable container with a resealable, flexible cover portion that is easy to use and a method of manufacturing the same. The reclosable container comprises a container body having a storage space and an opening providing access to the storage space. The container body includes a base portion and a resealable cover portion having an inner layer, an outer layer, and a pressure-sensitive adhesive affixing the inner layer to the outer layer. The inner layer of the resealable cover portion is heat sealed to the base portion about the opening thereby forming a heat-sealed region where the inner layer contacts and is heat sealed to the base portion. The inner layer of the resealable cover portion has a cut inside the heat-sealed region such that when the resealable cover portion is puiled apart from the base portion, the inner layer, the outer layer, and the pressure-sensitive adhesive are together lifted away from the opening, but the inner layer remains attached to the base portion in and adjacent to the heat-sealed region such that the pressure-sensitive adhesive contacting the inner layer in and adjacent to the heat-sealed region is exposed.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à un récipient refermable pourvu d'une partie couvercle flexible repositionnable qui est facile à utiliser et à son procédé de fabrication. Le récipient refermable comprend un corps de récipient comportant un espace de stockage et une ouverture permettant l'accès à l'espace de stockage. Le corps de récipient comprend une partie base et une partie couvercle repositionnable comportant une couche intérieure, une couche extérieure et un adhésif sensible à la pression collant la couche intérieure à la couche extérieure. La couche intérieure de la partie couvercle repositionnable est thermoscellée à la partie base autour de l'ouverture, ce qui permet de former une région thermoscellée où la couche intérieure est en contact avec la partie base et thermoscellée à celle-ci. La couche intérieure de la partie couvercle repositionnable comporte une découpe à l'intérieur de la région thermoscellée de sorte que, une fois la partie couvercle repositionnable éloignée de la partie base par traction, on puisse soulever de l'ouverture à la fois la couche intérieure, la couche extérieure et l'adhésif sensible à la pression; toutefois, la couche intérieure reste fixée à la partie base, dans la région thermoscellée et en position adjacente à cette région, de manière à exposer l'adhésif sensible à la pression en contact avec la couche intérieure, dans la région thermoscellée et en position adjacente à cette région.
