CAP AND CLOSURE FOR CONTAINERS Filed Oct. 18, 1965 April 25, 1967 All IN VEN TOR.

` IENT Fiyf- 56W 54?@4 United States Patent O 3,315,830 CAP AND CLOSURE FOR CONTAINERS Charles V. Flynn, Scarsdale, N.Y. Flyndustries Inc., 211 n. 43rd st., New York, N.Y. 10017) Filed Oct. 18, 1965, Ser. No. 497,137 11 Claims. (Cl. 21S-40) This invention relates to caps or closures for containers such as bottles, vials, etc.

An object of the invention is to provide a novel and improved multi-part cap construction which is especially adapted to the use of different plastic materials and to moderately large and jumbo sizes.

Another object of the invention is to provide an improved cap and closure construction as above set forth, wherein the components may be economically manufactured and assembled, utilizing inexpensive conventional mold equipment and already existing molding techniques which involve thin-walled sections and the like.

A feature of the invention resides in the provision of an improved cap construction in accordance with the foregoing, wherein the structure readily lends itself to decorative treatment, while at the same time having chemical stability so as to be non-reactive with the contents of containers.

An important advantage of the present cap is that an outer plastic material such as styrene may be readily decorated as by hot stamping, gold rolling, etc. Such decoration is not readily possible with chemically inactive plastic substances such as phenolic or urea plastics, Whereas these inactive or stable plastics are highly desired where the cap is in contact with the contents of the container. Inner plastic parts of the cap as provided by the invention may thus be readily fabricated of phen-olio or urea plastics which are especially suited for contact with chemically active liquids, the said inner parts being not required to have decoration.

By the present-invention a novel composite structure is `therefore provided of plastic parts, wherein the outer parts may be readily decorated and the inner parts are chemically stable and Will not react with the contents of the containers.

Other features and advantages will hereinafter appear.

In the drawings accompanying this specification, similar characters of reference are used to designate like components throughout the several views, in which:

FIG. 1 is an axial sectional view of a composite cap or closure as provided by the invention.

FIG. 2 is a top 4plan view of the cap of FIG. l.

' FIG.' 5. is abottom plan view of the cap of FIGS. l and 2.

FIG. is an axial sectional view of a composite cap illustrating another embodiment of the invention.

FIG. 5 is a top plan View of the cap of FIG. 4.

FIG. 6 is a bottom plan view of the cap of FIGS. 4 and 5.

FIG. 7 is an axial sectional view of a composite closure illustrating yet another embodiment of the invention.

Referring rst to FIGS. 1-3, the improved cap as provided by the invention comprises a multi-part outer cap assemblage designated generally by the numeral 20, which is constituted of a plastic substance such as styrene or the like, having dimensional stability and rigidity and being capable of easy decoration, as by hot stamping, gold rolling using plastic (Mylar) tape and the like.

rice

The composite cap further comprises an inner part or inverted cup designated generally by the numeral 22, said inner part being constituted of a thermosetting phenolic plastic or urea plastic which normally is not easily decorated as by hot stamping, but which is chemically stable and inactive whereby it will not react with the contents of containers on which the caps are placed.

The inner or inverted cup-like part 22 comprises a cylindrical, internally threaded body 24 the screw threads of which are adapted for engagement with the externally threaded neck or mouth of the container, vial or the like. The inner part 22 further comprises a transverse top wall 26 and preferably a sealing liner 28 engageable with the lip of the container mouth and adapted in the well-known manner to conform to slight irregularities thereof. Also provided is a backing member 30 disposed above the transverse top wall 26 of the inner part 22, said backing member being of suitable material which is preferably somewhat resilient or yielding, such as cork, plastic foam (Styrofoam) or the like.

By the present invention, in conjunction with the inner cup part 22 of thermosetting phenolic or urea plastic, a multi-part easily-decorated outer cap construction is provided of unique configuration whereby easy and inexpensive molding of the outer parts is possible while at the same time an advantageous cooperable relationship or assemblage is had with the inner cap part Z2.

The multi-part outer assemblage, designated 20, comprises an inverted cup-like member or cover piece 32 and an annular or ring-like member or cover piece 34, the said members :being secured together along a joint or weld line indicated at 36. The joint 36 may be cemented or sonic welded. If the latter, the cover pieces 32 and 34 will be secured together by fused portions at the joint. Both the cover parts 32 and 34 may be readily economically molded of styrene or similar thermo-plastic substance, with thin wall sections, utilizing simple molds and conventional molding techniques.

In accordance with the invention, the bottom edge of the outer cap part 34 has an internal iiange or shoulder 38 which is engageable with the bottom edge or rim portion 40 of the inner cup part 22. By such engagement, retention of the inner cup part is effected, whereby it is securely held captive in coaxial relationship with the multi-part outer structure. The backing member 30, inengaging the top transverse Wall 42 of the inverted cuplike member 32, also aids in securely positioning the inner cap part 22 in the assemblage. The seam or joint 36 between the outer cap parts of styrene or other thermoplastic substance may be made by sonic welding, or else by cementing, friction welding and the like.

As seen in FIG. 2, decorative emblems such as the letter f indicated at 46, may be economically applied to the outer cap part as by hot stamping. Or, a decorative band of gold or other color, indicated at 48, may be readily applied to the styrene cap part by a process utilizing heat in conjunction with the thermo-plastic nature of the styrene.

It will now be understood from the foregoing that, by virtue of the thin sections of all the cap parts, these may be quickly, economically molded without excessive curing times, and the parts may be securely held in their assembled positions by simple assembly techniques.

The cap construction permits a choice of materials whereby the outer cap parts may jbe readily decorated by hot stamping processes, and whereby the inner cap part is chemically stable and relatively inactive when in contact with the contents of the container on which the cap is used.

Another embodiment of the invention is illustrated in FIGS. 4, 5 and 6. In this embodiment, an inner cap part of phenolic or similar plastic substance having internal threads, is provided with a sealing liner 52, said inner cap part having on its top wall 54 a projecting positioning means 56 which may be in the form of lugs, an annular bead or shoulder, or the like.

The multi-part outer cap assemblage 58 comprises an inverted cup-like cap member 60 and an annular or ring-like supplementary member 62. A sonic Welded or cemented joint 64', secures the parts 60 and 62 together, and an internal annular shoulder 66 engages the bottom edge portion 68 of the inner cap part 50, to position the latter.

Also, for positioning purposes the outer cap part 60 may have one or several projections 79, either in the form of a hollow depending boss or else in the form of depending nibs, arranged for engagement with the projection 56 of the inner cap part 50. By such arrangement, a secure positioning of the cap parts is had at all times, together with simplicity and economy of assembly.

The outer cap parts may be readily decorated by hot stamping procedures, and the inner cap part being chemically inactive, will not react with the contents of the container on which the cap is utilized.

Yet another embodiment of the invention is illustrated in FIG. 7. fabricated from urea or phenolic plastic substance, is indicated at 74. The member 74 has internal screw threads and a sealing Washer 76 somewhat similar to the construction in FIG. l.

The outer cap structure, designated generally by the numeral 78, comprises an annular piece 80 having an inner annular flange 82 engaged with the bottom edge of the inner cap part 74. The outer cap construction also includes a relatively large inverted cup-like member 84 having a top transverse wall 86 engaged with the top wall S8 of the inner cap member 74. Also, the outer cap part 84 vhas an annular depending flange 90 in which the inner part 74 is nested, the flange 90 and the annular member Si) having abutting edges providing a joint 92 which may be cemented, sonic welded, etc.

The cap parts Sil and 84 are made of styrene or similar thermoplastic substance, by which they may be decorated as already explained in connection with the embodiments of FIGS. l and 4, utilizing heat-stamping or similar techniques. The thermosetting inner piece 74, being chemically inactive, will not react with the contents of the container as already explained above. l

The outer member S4 has a cylindrical outer wall or skirt 94 which is preferably of the same diameter as the shoulder or exterior of the container (not shown), thereby to provide a liush t therewith, as will be readily understood.

The cap construction shown in FIG. 7 is also characterized by relatively thin walls whereby curing time is held to a minimum. There are also the advantages of easy decoration of the exterior, and a chemically inert interior cap member.

Variations and modifications may be made within the scope of the claims, and portions of the improvement may be used without others.
