  • Publication number: 20080241441
    Abstract: Manufacturing process for a flexible tube, in which a tubular blank is fitted around a punch so that an end portion of the tubular blank protrudes by a height H from the side wall of the punch; a die is brought up to the punch and the end portion is imprisoned in the cavity thus formed; plastic is injected into the cavity until it comes into contact with the end portion so that it is welded to the skirt, without any additional contribution of heat or matter. The impression of the die used is at a depth greater than the protruding height H of the end portion, and has a ring-shaped boss obstructing the flow of the plastic, the outer edge of the ring-shaped boss and the inner edge of the end portion being distant from each other by a value less than the average thickness e of the transverse wall.

  • Publication number: 20080072400
    Abstract: A handle for a cosmetic product applicator can include a body fitted with an attachment end piece. The body can be generally flattened in shape and delimited by two parallel surfaces corresponding to the gripping faces, and a rounded edge. Each gripping face may be formed by a concave surface on the side of the median plane located between the two parallel surfaces, the two concave surfaces may be substantially symmetric and each shaped to form an area acting as a finger support. The handle may be detachable from the applicator at the attachment end piece and easily used with a complete series of specific applicators.

  • Publication number: 20070277902
    Abstract: A device for refilling a first container, fitted with a threaded first neck and a vaporization head, includes a second container for a liquid, a connection component including a first bearing plate for engaging the first neck and a second bearing plate engaging the second container, a median wall including a central orifice, and a means of closing the second container or the central orifice. The connection component engages an axially movable component capable of sliding inside the connection component, to form a valve, the movable component being able to move, under the action of an axial constraint, from a closed position “F” to an open position “O”, or, under the action of a spring, from the position “O” to the position “F”. The movable component includes a radial projection for engaging the first neck so that the first neck exerts an axial constraint on the radial projection.
