  • Patent number: 11027037
    Abstract: A device for evaporating volatile substances includes a wick (1) impregnated with volatile substances and a heating element (2) that heats the wick (1) for purposes of evaporating said volatile substances. The device further includes a reflective element (3) for reflecting the heat from the heating element (2) to said wick (1). The heating element (2) can be preferably a resistor or a ceramic heater. The reflective element (3) directs substantially all the heat provided by the heating element to the wick, thereby preventing an excessive rising of the temperature of the surface of the device.

  • Publication number: 20200397938
    Abstract: A device for diffusion of volatile substances that includes a container for containing volatile substances, including the container, an aperture defining a sealing area, and a multilayer structure placed on the aperture. The multilayer structure includes a microporous membrane through which the volatile substances are diffused and a barrier layer that is removed before a first use. The multilayer structure also includes a sealing portion in contact with the sealing area. A device with a microporous membrane where the porosity of the membrane at the portion of the sealing area has been substantially reduced or eliminated to stop liquid transportation.

  • Publication number: 20190337265
    Abstract: A multilayer structure (1) for volatile substances diffusers includes a semi-permeable layer (2) that can be in contact with the volatile substances and a barrier layer (3) to prevent the diffusion of the volatile substances before removal of the barrier layer from the multilayer structure. The multilayer structure also comprises a tear layer (4) placed between the barrier layer (3) and the semi-permeable layer (2), which permits the separation of the barrier layer (3) from the semi-permeable layer (2) when the barrier layer (3) is removed from the multilayer structure (1).
