CONT

On trouve dans le capsulage deux grandes catégories d'articles : les capsules à vis et les capsules serties [...] D'une façon générale, les unes et les autres comportent un joint. [...] Les joints sont nombreux et font appel à des matériaux divers : - joints indépendants en liège aggloméré, en papier ou carton, en matières plastiques, en caoutchouc. Les joints en liège sont souvent protégés par une enduction de cires ou de paraffine, mais surtout, comme ceux en carton, par une pastille ou «spot» de papier enduit d'aluminium, d'étain, de plastiques divers. Tous ces joints sont posés ou collés au fond de la capsule.
