BY 5 t E if Patented Mar. 16, 1954 PAINT CAN Harry Sebell, Syracuse, N. Y., asslgnor to Reynolds Metals Company, Richmond, Va., a. coma-- ration of Delaware Application October 25, 1951, Serial No. 253,149
1 Claim.
' This invention relates to paint cans of the type shown in my co-pending application Serial Number 223,400 filed April 2'7, 1951.
The can shown in said application is provided with a. collar element situated within the can body at its upper end and permanently united to the upper edge of the can body, said collar element having an annular vertical wall that defines a closure-receiving opening, a closure of soft, easily out, material closing said opening and having a peripheral depending skirt portion which fits within said vertical wall and a clamping ring within the skirt portion of the closure member and clamping it firmly to the wall.
A principal object of the present invention is to provide a novel wiper element on which 'a paint brush can be wiped and which is mounted on said clamping ring.
-In the drawings, wherein I have illustrated some selected embodiments of my invention,
Fig. 1 is a vertical sectional view through the upper part of a can embodying my invention;
Fig. 2 is a plan view of the can with the protective cover and closure member removed, said view showing the wiper element;
Fig. 3 shows the wiper element illustrated in Fig. 2;
Fig. 4 shows a difierent embodiment of the wiper element;
Fig. 5 is a section on the line 55 Fig. 1, but showing a third form of wiper element;
Fig. 6 is a sectional view on the line 66 Fig. '7, showing the clamping ring with still another form of wiper element mounted thereon;
Fig. 7 is a plan view of Fig. 6.
In the drawings, I indicates the upper end of a can body, and 2 is the collar element which is situated within the can body and is permanently connected to the wiper edge thereof by the usual lock seam 3.
The collar 2 is formed with the laterally extending horizontal portion 4 and with the annular U-shaped portion 5, the inner wall 6 of which is a smooth cylindrical vertical wall which defines the closure-receiving opening I of the can. The upper edge 8 of the wall 6 is shown as a rolled edge to provide a downwardly facing shoulder.
The closure-receiving opening I is closed by a closure member 9 which is of soft, easily cut, material, such, for instance, as thin aluminum which may be on the order of aluminum foil. Such closure member has a peripheral depending skirt II) which fits within the vertical wall 2 8 of the collar and said skirt portion I I1 is clamped to the wall 6 by means of a clamping band II having a smooth exterior face which fits within the skirt I0.
' It is intended that a can of this type will be opened'by cutting the easily cut material of the closure member 9 immediately inside of the clamping band I I, as set forth in my above mentioned application, and because of the material of which the closure member is made this operation can be easily performed by means of an ordinary knife or similar implement.
In accordance with the present invention I have provided a novel wiper element which is carried by the clamping band I I and which provides a wiper portion extending across the opening 1 and on which the person usingthe paint can wipe his brush.
.The clamping band II is a seamless band and itsupper edge I2 is a rolled edge as is also its lower edge I3, so that said band presents a bead at both its upper and lower edges.
The wiper member, which is mounted on the clamping ring, is confined between and held in place by the two rolled edges I2 and I3, as clearly seen in Fig. 1.
Said wiper element may assume difierent shapes without departing from the invention. In Figs. 2 and 3 the wiper element is made from a length of wire which is bent to present the straight wiper portion I4 and the curved portion I5 which has a curvature corresponding to the clamping band I I, said curved portion I5 being confined between the two beads I2 and I3, as illustrated in Fig. 1.
When the wiper element is in place the straight portion I l extends across the closure-receiving opening, as shown in Fig. 2, and is therefore available for the painter to wipe his brush thereon. The curved portion I5 of the wire fits loosely in the space between the beads I2 and I3 so that said wiper member can be turned to place the wiper portion I4 in different positions about the vertical axis of the can.
In Fig. 4 there is shown a wiper element I6 which presents a straight wiper portion I la and two arms I I extending from the ends of the straight portion and curved to fit the curvature of the clamping band I I. This form of wiper member is retained in place by the fact that the arms Il are confined between the rolled edges I2 and I3 of the clamping band.
In Fig. 5 there is shown a difierent embodiment of the invention in which the wiper member is formed with four straight sides I8 of equal length, thus forming a square figure and the corners IQ of said square wiper element are confined between the rolled edges I 2 and [3. This form of wiper element presents four wiping portions and hence when the painter is using the can there is always a wiper portion in convenient position for him to use.
In Figs. 6 and '7 I have shown still another embodiment of the invention in which the Wiper element is in the form of a bar 20 extending diametrically across the clamping band I I, the ends 2| of said bar being confined between the rolled edges [2 and I3-. The bar 20 is shown as made of heavier wire than that used for the other J forms of wiper elements herein illustrated and hence the end portions 2| of the bar 20 have been reduced in size to fit between the beads I2 and [3. As a means for giving protection to the closure member 9, which as stated above is relatively thin and is easily cut, I propose to employ a protective cover 22 which overlies the closure member 9 and which is formed near its periphery with the depending U-shaped portion 23 which fits with a tight friction fit into the U-shaped portion 5 of the collar 2. The edge 24 of the protective cover is a rolled edge so that said cover can be removed by inserting the end of a screw driver, or other prying implement, under the rolled edge and prying the cover off from the collar. Such protective cover 22 serves to pro tect the closure member 9 while the filled can is in storage or during shipment, and after the paint can has been opened by removing the protective cover and cutting the closure member 9 immediately inside of the clamping collar, said protective cover 22 may be replaced on the collar thereby serving as a replaceable cover.
I I claim: a

body at its upper end and permanently united to the upper edge of the can body, said collar element presenting an annular smooth surfaced cylindrical vertical wall located within the can body and below the top edge thereof and which defines a closure-receiving opening, the upper edge of said wall being bent inwardly to form a downwardly facing interior shoulder, a closure member closing said opening and having a depending peripheral skirt fitting within the vertical wall, a cylindrical clamping band within said skirt portion and having a smooth exterior face which overlies the said skirt portion and clamps the latter tothe smooth vertical wall to form a tight seal, the upper edge of the clamping band being rolled inwardly to provide an annular bead which engages the closure member and clamps it against the downwardly facing shoulder, and a Wiping References Cited in the file of this patent UNITED STATES PATENTS Number Name Date 721,507 Fogg Feb. 24, 1903 1,696,240 Kircher Dec. 25, 1928 1,943,639 Thatcher Jan. 16, 1934 2,313,059 Freeman Mar. 9, 1943 Y FOREIGN PATENTS Number Country Date 803,118 France June 29, 1936
