  • Publication number: 20190030868
    Abstract: A decorative laminate film including at least an inner film and an outer film, on which a printed pattern and a protruded portion that protrudes toward the outer film side are formed. The protruded portion is positioned on or in the vicinity of the printed pattern, and the outline of the printed pattern is blurred. The printed pattern and the protruded portion can be aligned easily, thereby providing excellent productivity. Even if the protruded portion is slightly misaligned, the design does not deteriorate, and the decorative laminate film has a favorable design due to gradation effect imparted by the protruded portion and the adjacent printed pattern.

  • Publication number: 20180370704
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a package formed of a resin film including a sealant film with a three-dimensionally shaped portion that protrudes outward. At the three-dimensionally shaped portion that protrudes outward, the sealant film has a thinnest part with a thickness of 50 to 95% of a thickness of the sealant film at any part other than the three-dimensionally shaped portion that protrudes outward, whereby rupture or peeling at the three-dimensionally shaped portion is prevented, and the package has basic functions such as a gas barrier property, a vapor barrier property, a drop impact resistance and a piercing resistance. Further, the three-dimensionally shaped portion is well defined and excellent in the ornamental effect, and the design is improved.

  • Patent number: 8465817
    Abstract: A polyester container furnished with a flange part having mechanical strength, transparency, and heat resistance through orientational crystallization, which polyester container exhibits low-temperature heat sealability, is provided by forming a projecting portion at an upper surface of the crystallized flange part, the projecting portion at at least a heat-sealing-face constituting region rendered amorphous or of low crystallinity. Further, in order to suppress the unevenness of the strength of sealing with a cover member and stably attain the high sealability, the projecting portion is deformed at the time of heat sealing with the cover member so as to form a resin piece protruding toward the interior of the container while being substantially appressed against the upper surface of an opening rim part. The formed resin piece couples with a sealant layer of the cover member.
