ATTY 2,129,839 Patented Sept. 13, 1938 UNITED STATES PATENT 2,129,839 OFFICE , CONTAINER. ‘Douglas Henderson, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Application August 14, 1937, Serial No. 159,076 4, Claims. (Cl. 221-430) This invention relates to containers and par ticularly to containers ‘of the collapsible tube type. These containers have usually been made of tin, aluminum, lead or metal and the top or discharge 5 end is usually formed integral with the body. The body of the container is generally formed of quite thin material to permit it being compressed and rolled up to discharge the contents, and the nec essary rigidity ‘is obtained by making the ‘dis charge end or top quite thick. The outlet is formed in the stiff top and provided with suitable closure means, which may be of the screw cap, automatic or other type. These metals are comparatively expensive, and further the metal does not lend itself readily to coloring. ' My object therefore is to devise a container in which, when set, holds the blank in rolled form. I This upper portion 2 is then bent inwardly as shown in Fig. 3, to form an inwardly directed ?ange 3, the material being preferably pleated or folded upon itself as shown to avoid slitting of the ?ange. It will be evident, of course, that in stead of rolling up the body from a ?at sheet. in the manner described, the body with its inte gral ?ange may betmoulded or otherwise formed from paper stock. ‘ - The head of the tube is formed of a main part provided with an inclined shoulder portion 4 and a central projection 5 through which latter the outlet is formed. This main part is ?tted within which paper or parchment or similar cheap ma‘ the end of the body} as shown in Figs. 5 and 6. terial may be substituted for metal in the body clamping ring 58, which frictionally engages the 20 _ of the container, and I attain my object by means of the constructions hereinafter described and illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which Fig. 1 is a plan view of a blank from which the container body is formed; _ _ Fig. 2 a perspective view of the body as rolled; I of the body of less thickness than the main part of the container body. Before rolling the material is coated with a waterproof non-cracking glue Fig. 3 a side view of the body ready for assem bly; Superimposed on the shoulder portion It is' a side of the projection 5 either directly as shown in Fig. 5 or through the ?ange extension 3a as shown in Fig. 6. _ In Fig. 7 a modi?cation is shown in which the neck'portion ‘I of the'top has an annular pe ripheral» recess in its under side to receive the ?ange on the body, and an annular member 8 is forced into the recess to clamp the ?ange in Fig. 4 a plan view of the same; Fig. 5 a vertical section showingthe method of place. The head of the tube may be of metal, hard " .30 assembling the body and head; Fig. 6 a side view of the completed container rubber or any other suitable material, although , it is preferably formed of an infusible condensa the outlet end being shown in section; Fig. '7 a sectional view showing a modified form tion product or a synthetic resin or similar ma terial. of construction; and ' . ' Fig. 8 a side view of the body as shown in Fig. 6 before assembly. . In the drawing like numerals of reference indi cate corresponding parts in the di?erent ?gures. A indicates the body of the container and B 40 the outlet end thereof. The body is formed of paper, parchment or similar material, which may, if desired, be treated with a suitable material to render it moisture proof, as well as proof against damage by the contents of the container. I ?nd, 45 however, that the paper known in the trade as - “vegetable parchment." is satisfactory for a num ber of purposes without further treatment. In the preferred construction, the body is formed from a ?at blank of material as shown 50 v in Fig. 1, which is rolled up to the tubular form as shown in Fig. 2. It wil be noted that the blank I is provided with an extension 2 along part of one edge. '. . ' This results, when the body-ls rolled up, in the 55 forming of a narrow strip along the upper edge . - The lower end of the tube will be ?attened out in the usual manner and held closed by means of a clamping strip 9. I The body may be provided with a paint, enamel, or other ?nish as desired, and may also have printing or decorating matter applied thereto. If desired, the printing may be applied to the body before rolling takes place. What I ‘claim as my invention is: 1. In a container, the combination of a tubu lar body of paper or paper-like material, having 45 an annular inwardly directed ?ange at its outlet end; and‘ a top of rigid material for said outlet end, said ,top comprising separate inner and outer members slidably movable relative to one another in a direction longitudinally of the body and be 0 tween which the said ?ange is clamped, said mem bers frlctionally_ engaging one another and nor mally tending to resist separation, the exterior diameter of the inner member being the same as 55 the interior diameter of the body. 2 . 2,129,839 2. In a container, the combination of a tubu another in a direction longitudinally relative to lar body comprising a blank of paper or paper one another and between which thevsaid ?ange like material rolled upon itself to form a plurality is clamped, said members frictionally engaging of plies, and having an annular inwardly directed one another and normally tending to resist sep~ ?ange at its outlet end, the side wall portion of aration. \ said body having a greater number of plies than 4.
