Title:
CONTAINMENT AND APPLICATION DEVICE FOR LIQUID, SEMI-LIQUID, SOLID AND SEMI-SOLID PRODUCTS AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURING SAME
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO1999017632
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
This invention pertains to a device (100) and the method of making same, which device functions both as a containment system for a product having either liquid, semi-liquid, solid or semi-solid characteristics, and as an applicator that can be used to deliver and apply the product to a surface in a convenient, economical and simple manner. The device includes an applicator pad (11) that has a front surface that comes in contact with the desired surface to thereby apply the product thereto. A product impermeable backing layer (12) is bonded to a rear surface of the applicator pad and a packet (13) can be placed in position to release the product into the applicator pad through an aperture (15) formed in the backing layer. A multi-purpose label (14) is used to seal the packet in place, protects the user's hands, provides printed information to the user, provides the user with a device gripping surface (20) and can also function to seal and/or reseal the applicator device. The label therefore can perform the important function of protecting the user from contact with products that are undesirable or irritating to the skin. Thus, the manufacture proceeds in two phases: assembly of the basic device absent the product; final filling of the device with the product and labelling with the multi-purpose label.
