Y., assignors', by mesne assignments, to Robert Gair Company, Inc., Wilmington, Del., a corporation of Delaware Application March 25, 1932, Serial No. 601,162 19 Claims. (01. 229-14) This invention relates to containers or carriers In applying the adhesive material or glue to and has particular reference to a foldably erectthe face of the outer cover or lining, for attachable lined carton of the waterproof type. ing the same, we find it advantageous and 600- More particularly stated, and in order to secure nomical to form thin or narrow intersecting or 5 one of its objects, the invention is directed to a criss-cross lines with the adhesive, thereby securcarton in which an outer cover, including five ing a complete result with a minimum of matebody panels or sections, is substantially protected, rial.

Opposed end or top and 11, between which a panel 12 forms one lateral base flaps cooperate with said panels, so that on face of the carton, while the opposite lateral face taking one of the folded devices, as from a stack includes an attaching panel 13 and a cooperating attaching flap 14, which is continuous with said edges of the folded device inwardly to form the panel 10 over a'crease or fold line 15. Fold lines carton, of rectangular cross-section, as at present 16, 17 and 18 between the other panels render shown, after which the bottom, and then the top the latter foldable thereat.
flaps are folded or turned into position, as shall Extending from the lines 15-17 at one end of the blank are cuts 19, 20, 21,'so that flaps 23, 24,
continuous with the attaching flap 14, form the base end of the carton, when folded, there being also fold lines 28, 29, and 31 between the respective end fiaps and adjoining portions, opposite the fold lines 28-31 is a fold line generally numbered 32, and extending fromthe fold lines 15-17, at the opposite end of the blank, are cuts 33, 34, 35, so that the flaps 36, 37, 38 and 39 are foldable inwardly to form the top of the carton.
The waterproof lining, disposed on the inner faceof the outer member as seen in Fig. 1, readily conforms, owing to its pliability, with movement'of the several panels and flaps, as identified; and to render this movement accurate and reliable said lining is attached to the outer cover by endless lines of glue or' adhesive material, preferably waterproof, one of which, on
the panel 10, is represented by dotted lines 40.
On the panel 11, cooperating with the lining, is an endless band of adhesive material 41, and on the panel 13, a band 42. The band of the panel 12 is shown at 43, and that of the flap 14 at 44. We find that a single spot of adhesive material, as 45, gives good results on the bottom flaps 23-26; and a spot, as 46, on the top flaps.
The boundary edge of the lining, as at 47, corresponds generally with the line of the bottom flaps 23-26, but the portions of the lining, as 36', 37', 39', which corresponds with the top flaps extend therebeyond, to form a guide or spout for material being inserted in or removed from the carton.
Folded backwardly over the panel 13, and therefore covering its edge 48, is a marginal portion or flap 49 of the lining; and extending only part of the way over the attaching flap 14 is a marginal portion or opposite flap 14 of said lining. Cooperating with this structure is a strip 50 on the inner face of said flap 14, and a strip 51 on the outer face of the panel 13. One or both of these strips receives adhesive material in the gluing and folding operation, so that the device comes out of the machine as seen in Fig. 2.
To then erect the carton when required for use, according to this aspect of the invention, the folded device is urged as from opposite lines or edges 15, 17 into the rectangular sectional form, partly seen in Fig. 3, but the strips 50, 51 being joined, of course. Turning thebottom upwardly, Fig. 4, the flap 26, with its mating lining flap 26, is bent inwardly, and then the flap 25 is also turned in. In this way said flap 26' engages the lining flap 25', so that the material of the outer cover is completely protected by the waterproof lining. Inward movement of the flaps 25, 26, with the corresponding flaps or portions of the lining, partly folds the interposed flap 23 of the lining, as shown in Fig. 4; and also the lining flap or portion 24'. The flap 23 is then turned in, with said partly folded portion 23' and afterwards the flap 24, with its lining 24', which completes the bottom, and additional adhesive material may be used on the last-mentioned flaps.
The method of folding and closing the top flaps is identical with that described for the bottom,
- of the protection contemplated is to be taken solely from the appended claims, interpreted as broadly as is consistent with the prior art.
