Record 2 2010-03-16

English

Subject field(s)
  • Opening and Closing Devices (Packaging)
DEF

An extra seal that comprises a sheet that is resistant to water vapor or vapor from some specific chemical, and adhered to the top end of a container below the regular cover or closure, to give added protection to the contents such as: soluble coffee, spirits of nitre, creams and ointments, etc.

OBS

At the point of use, the membrane is torn or peeled off, and subsequent reclosure is accomplished by the screw cap or snap-on lid that initially protected the membrane against mechanical damage. Such a membrane provides visual evidence of tampering.

CONT

In French, the term "opercule" also describes a peel-open aluminum seal that is used alone on a container (e.g. on yogourt containers).
