Description

CONTAINER WITH ADHESIVE LABEL WITH ADHESIVE FREE AREA}

The present invention relates to a container of consumer goods comprising an adhesive label. The container of the present invention has found particular application as a container for long consumer items such as smoking articles.

Smoking articles, such as cigarettes and cigars, are generally packaged in rigid hinge lid receptacles that include leads connected to the box with respect to hinge lines extending across the back wall of the box and the container. Such hinge lid containers typically consist of a single layered cardboard blank. In use, the lid rotates about the hinge line to open the container to enter and exit a bundle of smoking articles contained within the box.

One bundle of smoking articles contained within a box is generally packaged in an inner liner, or package, of metallized paper, metal foil, or other flexible sheet material. In order to enter and exit the smoking article bundle within the inner liner, the consumer must remove the predrilled top of the inner liner as soon as the first opening of the hinge lid container.

Consumer goods, such as a bundle of smoking articles, are known to be surrounded by a removable, substantially sealed packaging. The packaging including the consumer goods can be inserted into the hinge lid container.

For example, EP-A-0 944 539 discloses a hinged lid pack of smoking articles in which the smoking article is provided in a sealed enclosure of a layer of barrier material having access holes configured therein. The access hole is permanently covered by a cover layer having an adhesive surface, which can engage with the barrier material layer to reseal the enclosure after the first opening. A frame capable of pressing the cover layer is provided in a sealed enclosure between the smoking article and the barrier material layer.

WO-A-2008 / 142540 discloses a hinged lid pack of a smoking article surrounded by an inner package with an extraction opening closed by a cover wing secured to the inner package using a vegan adhesive applied to the underside of the cover wing. Is disclosed. In one embodiment, the outer surface of the lower tab of the cover layer is adhered permanently and not to the inner surface of the front wall of the lid so that opening and closing of the lid simultaneously opens and closes the cover vanes. In an embodiment, the cover vanes form an S-type fold when opening the lid of the hinge lid pack. The term "S-shape" is used to denote a shape having the shape of a curve with one inflection point.

Due to the S-shape of the cover vanes, at certain angles during opening and closing of the lid, portions of the cover layer may undesirably contact another portion of the cover layer or the lower edge of the lid front wall. Since portions of all cover layers have a vegan retack adhesive, the portions may stick together and affect the closure of the lid.

It is an object of the present invention to avoid the disadvantages of the prior art pack.

The invention will be further described by way of example only with reference to the accompanying drawings in which:
1 shows a view of a container according to the present invention;
2 shows a side view of the container shown in FIG. 1 with the lid open;
3 shows a side view of the container shown in FIG. 1 with the lid in a closed state;
4 shows an inner surface of an adhesive label for use in a container according to the present invention;
5 shows the outer surface of the adhesive label shown in FIG. 4;
6 shows a side view of a further container according to the invention with the lid in an open state;
7 shows a side view of a further container with a lid in a closed state;
8 shows the inner surface of an adhesive label for use in a further container; In addition
FIG. 9 shows the outer surface of the adhesive label shown in FIG. 8.

According to a first aspect of the present invention, there is provided a container for consumer goods. The container includes an outer housing, wherein the outer housing includes a box and a lid hinged to the box along a hinge line extending across the rear wall of the container. The inner package of consumer goods is provided in an outer housing that includes an entrance opening through which the consumer goods can be removed. The adhesive label covers the entry opening of the inner package and is provided to extend beyond the periphery of the entry opening of the inner package. The adhesive label is at least partially detachably attached to the inner package by a detachable adhesive provided to the first area of the inner surface of the adhesive label extending at least relative to at least the lower periphery of the entry opening of the inner package. The second area of the inner surface of the adhesive label is permanently attached to the inner surface of the front wall of the lid of the outer container. The third region of the inner surface of the adhesive label disposed between the first and second regions is substantially free of adhesive.

By providing such an adhesive label, a container with a removable inner package can be provided to more easily close the container. The container can be closed more easily because the adhesive label does not adhere to itself or to the inner surface of the lid during opening and closing. In addition, a more securely sealed inner package can be provided since only a part of the removable adhesive of the provided adhesive label is adhered to the inner package, so that it can be effectively sealed several times.

The height of the third region of the inner surface of the adhesive label is preferably at least about 1 mm. The height of the third region is preferably at least about 2 mm, more preferably at least about 3 mm. The height of the second region of the inner surface of the adhesive label is preferably at least about 3 mm. The height of the second region is preferably at least about 4 mm, more preferably at least about 6 mm.

The width of the third region of the inner surface of the adhesive label is preferably at least about 90% of the width of the entry and exit opening of the inner package. More preferably, the width of the third region of the inner surface of the adhesive label is substantially greater than or equal to the width of the entry opening of the inner package. More preferably, the width of the third region is substantially the same as the width of the adhesive label. The width of the third region can be varied to change the force required to open the container. The narrow third area increases the force required to open the container and thus can provide a good seal between the adhesive label and the inner package. However, reducing the width of the third region may increase the force required to close the container because the adhesive label may contact and partially adhere to the inner surface of the lid.

The height of the third region of the inner surface of the adhesive label is preferably substantially less than or equal to the height of the second region of the inner surface of the adhesive label. The second region of the inner surface of the adhesive label may be disposed on the inner surface of the lid such that when the lid is in the open state, a third region substantially free of adhesive extends at or beyond the lower edge of the lid. By arranging the relative size and position of the adhesive labels as described above, the adhesive labels provide that they do not adhere to the inner surface of the lid and thus provide for easier closure of the container.

According to a second aspect of the present invention, there is provided a container for consumer goods. The container includes an outer housing comprising a box and a lid hinged to the box along a hinge line extending across the rear wall of the container. The inner package of consumer goods is provided in an outer housing that includes an entrance opening through which the consumer goods can be removed. The adhesive label covers the entry opening of the inner package and provides an extension beyond the periphery of the entry opening of the inner package. The adhesive label is at least partially detachably attached to the inner package by a removable adhesive provided to the first area of the inner surface of the adhesive label extending at least relative to at least the lower periphery of the entry opening of the inner package, the interior of the adhesive label The second area of the surface is substantially free of adhesive, wherein the first area of the outer surface of the adhesive label is permanently attached to the inner surface of the front wall of the lid of the outer container. The second region of the inner surface of the adhesive label and the first region of the outer surface of the adhesive label at least partially hit too.

This reduces the force between the rear side of the first region of the outer surface and the removable adhesive provided to the first region of the inner surface. By providing such an adhesive label, a container with a removable inner package can be provided so that it can be closed more easily. The container can be more easily closed because the adhesive label does not adhere to itself or to the inner surface of the lid during opening and closing. In addition, a more securely sealed inner package can be provided since only a portion of the detachable adhesive of the adhesive label provided is adhered to the inner package, thereby effectively sealing multiple times.

In a second aspect of the invention, the area of the second area of the adhesive label is preferably 100% to about 50% of the area of the first area of the outer surface of the adhesive label. If the second area is disadvantageously smaller than the first area, the adhesive label has a small tendency to detach from the lid when the container is opened. The height of the second region of the inner surface is at least about 1 mm, preferably at least about 2 mm, more preferably at least about 3 mm. The height of the first area of the outer surface of the adhesive label is at least about 3 mm, preferably at least about 4 mm, more preferably at least about 6 mm.

In the first and second aspects of the present invention, the adhesive label provided to seal the access portion through the access opening so that the label can be removed from the surface of the inner package and reattached several times includes a removable adhesive. This allows for repeated opening and closing of the inner package to enter and exit each consumer product. The adhesive detachable to the adhesive label would be desirable to provide sufficient adhesion such that the label is reattached as many times as there are consumer goods in the inner package. This allows the consumer to open and reseal the inner package until the package is empty.

Suitable removable adhesives are known to those skilled in the art and various adhesives are commercially available from a number of suppliers. The selection of a suitable adhesive may depend on the material forming the inner package in which the adhesive label is sealed or resealed during use.

The adhesive label preferably includes a surface area free of adhesives, wherein the area free of adhesives matches the size of the entrance openings in the inner package. When the lid is in the closed state with the adhesive label sealed in the inner package, the adhesive-free surface area covers the entrance opening in the inner package. This will prevent dirt or small particles, such as tobacco shorts or other residues from the consumer goods in the package, from adhering to the adhesive label. This may occur, for example, when the adhesive label contacts the consumer goods in the inner package.

In an alternative embodiment having an area free of adhesives in the inner opening in the inner package that matches the size, in the first and second aspects of the invention, the entrance holes of the inner package are constituted by one or more soft lines in the inner package. do. One or more fragile lines constitute the entry and exit portion of the inner package. By providing an inner package with configured access portions, the inner package can be more reliably sealed before the first opening of the container. This can increase the shelf life of the consumer goods contained in the container. More preferably, the adhesive label comprises an additional area of the inner surface of the adhesive label permanently attached to the entry and exit portion of the inner package which is contacted by one or more soft lines. The inlet portion of the inner package is partially from the rest of the inner package along one or more soft lines in the first opening of the lid of the outer housing such that the inlet portion of the inner package remains attached to the rest of the inner package during subsequent opening and closing of the lid of the outer housing. It is preferable to separate. The detachable adhesive provided in the first area of the inner surface of the adhesive label may extend over substantially the entire periphery of the entry and exit portions of the inner package.

In the first and second aspects of the invention, the adhesive label is preferably at least partially permanently attached to the inner package. More preferably, the adhesive label is permanently attached to the inner package by a connecting portion extending over substantially the entire periphery of the adhesive label. The connecting portion is connected to the adhesive label along the edge of the adhesive label adjacent to the edge of the entry portion. The connecting edge is preferably located on the top rear side of the inner package.

In the first and second aspects of the invention, the container preferably further comprises an inner frame in an inner package. More preferably, the inner frame is a U-shaped inner frame having a front wall and a pair of opposing side walls. Alternatively, an inner frame may be provided between the container and the inner package. An inner frame with a large surface area advantageously increases the structural rigidity of the container. The increased structural stiffness provided by the inner frame allows for a tight seal of the adhesive label. This is particularly advantageous for subsequent closing operations when the container no longer has a void. The term "U-shaped" is used to denote a shape comprising three parts, wherein the first and third parts extend in the same direction perpendicular to the second part in parallel with each other.

When the inner frame is provided between the container and the inner package, when the adhesive label is attached to the cover layer of the inner frame, the inner frame is selected if the surface structure of the cover layer is selected so that substantially no adhesive moves from the adhesive label to the cover layer. Silver may comprise a cover layer. For example, the inner frame may comprise a cover layer of layered polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The cover layer can be transparent or metallized. Preventing the transfer of adhesive from the label to the inner frame is advantageous in that no dust or small particles, such as so-called "cigarette shots", adhere to the inner frame.

The inner package is preferably formed from a metal foil or metallized paper. The inner package material may be formed as a layered metallized polyethylene film and liner material. The liner material may be glazed glassine paper. In addition, the inner package material may be provided with a print water soluble top coating.

The consumer goods are preferably smoking articles. However, the container may be suitable for a variety of consumer goods such as confectionery making, dried foods and the like.

As used herein, the terms 'front', 'rear', 'top', 'bottom', 'top', 'bottom' and 'side' refer to the relative position of the portion of the container according to the invention and the container in a closed state. In the case of the lid of the outer housing and in the upright position along the hinge line at the rear of the container, it shows its components. When describing the container according to the invention, these terms are used regardless of the orientation of the container described. The rear wall of the container is a wall comprising a hinge line.

The term "hinge line" refers to a line through which the lid can be rotated to open the container. It may be a fold line or a score line in a panel that forms a hinge line, for example a rear wall of the container.

The term "longitudinal" refers to the top or vice versa from below. The term "lateral direction" refers to a direction perpendicular to the longitudinal direction.

As used herein, the term "height" refers to the size of each portion of the adhesive label measured longitudinally when the adhesive label is attached to the inner package. The term “width” refers to the size of each portion of the adhesive label measured in the transverse direction when the adhesive label is attached to the inner package.
