  • Patent number: 10759582
    Abstract: A flexible laminate suitable for forming a package (10) having a reclosable flap (12) is provided that includes pressure sensitive adhesive (34) extending in a periphery region past a reseal margin (42) for the flap (12) and on an opposite side therefrom for joining an outer and inner layer (30, 36) of the laminate together, whether directly or indirectly. The pressure sensitive adhesive (34) can overlie a permanent adhesive (32) in the periphery region, or directly join the outer and inner layers of the laminate together. The use of pressure sensitive adhesive (34) in the region can reduce the tight registration needed for cutting the outer layer (30) to define an outward layer of the flap (12), thereby reducing the chances for cutting into a portion of the outer layer (30) joined only by permanent adhesive (32) to the inner layer (36).

  • Patent number: 8980388
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments provide a pressure-seal cohesive and method for making and using the pressure-seal cohesive to form mailer type business forms. The disclosed pressure-seal cohesive can provide an improved cohesive sealing of the mailer forms. In particular, the pressure-seal cohesive can include at least one silane promoter admixed with at least one aqueous pressure sensitive compound formulation that contains pressure sensitive cohesive and/or adhesive compounds. The admixed silane promoter can have a concentration ranging from about 0.5% to about 2.5% weight percent of the pressure-seal cohesive to improve the compatibility of the pressure sensitive compounds, even if they are contaminated by the fuser oils (e.g., functionalized PDMS oil) during digital printing processes (e.g., on Xerox iGen3).

  • Patent number: 8956503
    Abstract: The present invention provides tissue products having a high degree of stretch and low modulus at relatively high tensile strengths, such as geometric mean tensile strengths greater than about 1500 g/3? and more preferably greater than about 2000 g/3?. The combination of a tough, yet relatively supple sheet is preferably achieved by subjecting the embryonic web to a speed differential as it is passed from one fabric in the papermaking process to another, commonly referred to as rush transfer.

  • Patent number: 8950576
    Abstract: The present invention relates to bags made from medical-grade paper for sterilization, with sterilization-process indicators and pigmented-adhesive-based safety features, which is easy to handle and use and can be used to store materials, more particularly surgical medical material, for sterilization. Such bags are produced using medical-grade paper that is treated on the surface thereof with a microbiocide for sterilization, and, owing to the structure and design thereof, allow safe, rapid handling of the sterilized material placed within, since there are visual indicators that guarantee the hermetic closure and sealing thereof. Furthermore, generally, the invention has printed indicators that change color depending on the sterilization process carried out on the bags and on whether said process was carried out correctly.
