  • Patent number: 10589914
    Abstract: A blister sheet includes a container film including pockets receiving a content, and a cover film mounted to the container film to close the pockets. The container and the cover film are made of synthetic resins. The cover film is thinner than the container film. One pair of cuts formed for each pocket passes through the container and the cover film and extends to the pocket such that each pocket is placed between the cuts. The container and the cover film are broken from the one pair of cuts toward the pocket. A cutting slit or perforation is formed in the container film to allow for separation of the blister sheet into sheet pieces. The cutting slit or perforation is extended to intersect with the cut and a portion of the cutting slit or perforation that intersects with the cut passes through the container and the cover film.

  • Patent number: 9469443
    Abstract: A thermoplastic bag suitable for use as a liner for a garbage canister or trash receptacle may be made from a multi-layered thermoplastic web material. The multi-layer web material may include a first layer and a second layer adjacent to the first layer. Under typical conditions, the layers may tend to block or adhere together to remain in their adjacent position. However, the layers may delaminate and separate from each other when sufficient forces are applied. Delamination of the layers allows the layers to move with respect to each other when the force is applied. The delaminating of the layers absorbs energy which may increase tear and puncture resistance.

  • Publication number: 20150108028
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a method of forming a laminate absorbent structure, and a resulting package containing a single continuous running web of the laminate material. Notably, formation of the material is effected by blending a curtain of adhesive fibers with a curtain of particulate material, and depositing the mixture on a moving substrate, preferably provided in the form of a tissue layer. A second substrate, also preferably comprising a tissue layer, is applied on top of the deposited mixture, and pressure applied to form the laminated structure. Notably, attendant to packaging of the laminated material, adjacent layers of the material tend to nest into one another, to form a sandwich in which the density of the material in the package is more than 1.5 times the density of the material after its removal from the package.
