English Abstract

The present invention provides a recyclable composite container. The recyclable composite container comprises a cardboard hollow body having an open end defining an opening. The body is formed by a sidewall having an inwardly rolled rim at the open end. The container also comprises a framing element which is removably connectable to the open end of the cardboard hollow body. The framing element has a peripheral portion and a hook-shaped connector linked to this peripheral portion. The connector is for engaging with the inwardly rolled rim of the cardboard hollow body. Such construction thereby allows connection of the framing element to the cardboard hollow body by hooking the connector to the rim of the cardboard hollow body, and disconnection of the framing element from the cardboard hollow body by pulling the framing element so as to disengage the connector from the rim.


French Abstract

La présente invention porte sur un contenant composite recyclable. Le contenant composite recyclable comprend un corps creux en carton ayant une extrémité ouverte définissant une ouverture. Le corps est formé par une paroi latérale ayant un rebord roulé vers l'intérieur à l'extrémité ouverte. Le contenant comprend également un élément de structure qui peut être relié de manière amovible à l'extrémité ouverte du corps creux en carton. L'élément de structure a une partie périphérique et un raccord en forme de crochet relié à cette partie périphérique. Le raccord est destiné à venir en prise avec le rebord roulé vers l'intérieur du corps creux en carton. Une telle construction permet ainsi une liaison de l'élément de structure au corps creux en carton par accrochage du raccord au rebord du corps creux en carton, et une désolidarisation de l'élément de structure du corps creux en carton par traction de l'élément de structure de façon à libérer le raccord du rebord.


Note: Claims are shown in the official language in which they were submitted.

THE EMBODIMENTS OF THE INVENTION FOR WHICH AN EXCLUSIVE
PROPERTY OR PRIVILEGE IS CLAIMED ARE DEFINED AS FOLLOWS:
1. A recyclable composite container comprising:
a cardboard hollow body having a first and second open end defining openings,
the body
being formed by a sidewall having an inner surface, an outer surface and an
inwardly
rolled rim at the first and second open ends;
a first framing element removably connectable to the first open end and a
second framing
element removably connectable to the second open end, the first and second
framing
elements having a rigid peripheral portion comprising a collar sized and
shaped for fitting
snugly over the open end of the cardboard hollow body when the framing element
is
connected to the open end, the collar extending over the outer surface of the
sidewall, at
the open end; and a hook-shaped connector linked to the peripheral portion for
engaging
with the inwardly rolled rim of the cardboard hollow body, said connector
comprising an
axial section ending with a hook extending radially and outwardly;
a bag wrapable around the sidewall the cardboard hollow body for lining both
the inner
and outer surfaces of the sidewall, the bag being clampable at both ends of
the cardboard
hollow body between each of the inwardly rolled rim and the connector of the
corresponding framing element.
2. The recyclable composite container according to claim 1, wherein the
connector comprises
a flange having an outwardly curved end, the flange extending continuously
along said
peripheral portion.
3. The recyclable composite container according to claim 1, comprising several
hooked-
shaped connectors distributed along said peripheral portion.
4. The recyclable composite container according to claim 1, wherein the first
and second
framing elements each comprise a cover wall integral to the collar for closing
the opening
19

of the cardboard hollow body when the first and second framing elements are
connected to
their respective first and second open ends.
5. The recyclable composite container according to claim 1, wherein the
peripheral portion of
the framing element is a lid flange defining an aperture, for sealingly and
removably
receiving a lid.
6. The recyclable composite container according to claim 1, wherein the
cardboard hollow
body is tubular and the framing element has an annular shape.
7. The recyclable composite container according to claim 1, wherein the first
and second
framing elements each comprise two components, a first component comprising
the
peripheral portion and a second component comprising the connector, one of the

components being provided with a groove, and the other one of the components
being
provided with a clipping element for fitting in said groove, the groove and
clipping
element forming a tongue-and-groove joint for connecting the first and second
components
together.
8. The recyclable composite container according to claim 1, wherein the first
and second
framing elements each comprise two components, a first component comprising
the
peripheral portion and a second component comprising the connector, one of the

components being provided with a first threaded surface, and the other one of
the
components being provided with a complementary second threaded surface,
whereby the
first and second components are screwable to one another.
