  • Publication number: 20200198859
    Abstract: A container (210) for holding granular or powdered material and formed by a top wall (212), a bottom wall (214), a front wall (216), a rear wall (218), a first side wall (220), and a second side wall (222). A rotatably removable lid (D) is interiorly mounted with a scoop (32) and is pivotally hinged to a collar (300) that includes a sealing gasket (330). The collar (300) mounts to the walls of the container (210). A sealing wall 240 of the lid (D) cooperates with the gasket 300 to prevent the contents from spilling. The container (210) incorporates powder control features, a container wall junction (50) preferred geometry and congruent scoop (32) enabling convenient access to the contents, a tolerance variation accommodating and strength improving, J-shaped collar (300) and interlocking indentations (290) and flex clips (310), and a pressure controlling portion (350) that prevents unwanted deformation due to pressure differentials.

  • Publication number: 20090042014
    Abstract: A compressible molded component comprises a compressible cushion member integrally formed with an additional member. The compressible cushion member is comprised of a deformable material formed by an injection molding process. During the molding process, the deformable material is injected in molten form into a core component of a mold, the core component having an array of protrusions. The array of protrusions in the mold forms an array of voids in the compressible cushion member when the component is removed from the mold. The additional member may include a skin member and/or a structural member attached to the compressible cushion member.
