  • Publication number: 20130048523
    Abstract: A label for a product rolled about a core has an outer profile configured to extend beyond an outer diameter of the core, a front surface having alignment indicia configured to align the label with respect to an inner diameter of the core, and a rear surface having adhesive thereon and being contactable with an inner surface of the core. The outer profile defines a tabular segment and an arcuate portion, the tabular segment being formable and bendable about the inner diameter of the core and adherable to an inner surface of the core, the tabular segment having a first portion and a second portion, the arcuate portion being configured to extend beyond the outer diameter of the core. Reference indicia is disposed on the first portion of the tabular segment inboard of the alignment indicia such that the second portion of the tabular segment is absent the reference indicia.

  • Patent number: 7981234
    Abstract: Easy starting rolls of perforated tissue product which have a reduced tendency to ply separate are formed with an adhesively secured doubled over tail tab folded against the roll. The strength and location of the bonds are controlled by controlling the penetration of the adhesive into the tissue. The dry tensile strength of the projecting folded over tail tab exceeds 400 g/in and the caliper thereof exceeds one mil. The adhesive bonds are spaced away from lines of perforation joining sheets in the initial sheets of the roll.
