  • Patent number: 5225125
    Abstract: A lid (1) is injection-molded of polyethylene, for a widemouthed barrel of a synthetic resin, and includes an outer rim (4) encompassing the barrel neck (3) and an inner rim (5) dipping into the barrel neck. The outer lid rim (4) and inner lid rim (5) form an annular space (7), an annular web (8) projecting axially from the base of this space. For producing the lid gasket (13), the annular space (7) is exposed to an open flame for activating the annular space surface. Subsequently the sealing material, preferably polyurethane, is injected from a foaming machine into the base of the annular space (7), and thereafter the lid (1) is vibrated in order to degasify the gasket (13). The sealing material, preferably consisting of foamed polyurethane, contains a parting compound having a long-term effect.

  • Patent number: 5074428
    Abstract: Such synthetic resin lids comprise an outer rim (4) encompassing the barrel neck (3) and an inner rim (5) entering into the barrel neck (3) and projecting beyond the lid bottom (6) below the barrel opening, as well as a sealing ring inserted between the outer rim (4) of the lid and the inner rim (5) of the lid. This sealing ring is urged by means of a clamping ring (10) or tightening wire against the opening rim (14) of the barrel neck (3), the clamping ring (10) or tightening wire extending over a flange (110 or flange sections molded to the outer rim (4) of the lid at the bottom and extending underneath a solid border (120 which latter protrudes radially toward the outside at a spacing below the barrel opening from the barrel wall. This border can be designed as a continuously extending flange or can be subdivided into flange sections. An axially projecting annular web (8) is molded to the base of an annular chamber ( 7) formed by the outer and inner rims (4 and 5, respectively) of the lid.
