Dec. 19, 1961 M. w. HEDIN SLEEVE-STYLE Box Filed Jan. 29, l1959 3,013,653 Patented Bec. 19, 1961 E-STYLE PBX Milton W. Hedin, St. Pani, Minn., assigner to Minne- Sota Mining and Manufacturing Company, St. Paul, Minn, a corporation of Delaware Filed Jian. 29, 1959, Ser. No. 789,835 i Claim. {(i. 206m-52) This invention relates to a package for a roll of strip material; eg., pressure-sensitive adhesive tape.

One object of the invention is to provide a companion package for the package-dispenser disclosed in Hedin Patent No. 2,767,833. A feature of the present box is that it is particularly adapted for the Packaging of Wide rolls of adhesive tape; Le., rolls over l inch in Width.

it is an object of this invention to provide a sleeve-style box in which a roll of .tape may be securely maintained in spaced relationship to the side walls of the box, thereby eliminating damage or scarring of the tape roll by contact with the stock forming the sides of the box.

Further objects of the invention are to provide a sleevestyle box which can be manufactured yfrom a relatively small quantity of paper stock; Which may easily be packed with a roll of tape; and which may easily be opened by a user.

Referring now to the drawings: f

FIGURE 1 is a perspective View of the box of this invention with a roll of pressure-sensitive adhesive tape contained therein.

FIGURE 2 is a crossseotional View of the box, as shown in FIGURE 1, along line 2--2 of FIGURE l.

FIGURE 3 is a cross-sectional View of the box, taken along line 3--3 of FTGURE l.

FIGURE 4 is a plan view of the blank from which the box of this invention is formed.

The box of this invention comprises a top 2, bottom 3, opposed side panels i and 5, ap 5, and a tongue member, indicated generally by reference character 7.y Tongue 7, when the box is in set-up position, lies within opening 8 (on top 2), and provides a roll holding structure whereby tape roll 9, on core lli, is maintained in position Within the box.

Tongue 7 is made up or" opposed coresaligning panels 11 and 11a, central panel 12, Iand tab panel 13. Central panel 12 in the embodiment shown is formed with ears 14, although such ears are not. critical,

As indicated particularly in FIGURE 2, tongue panels 11 and 11a extend at right angles to bottom 3, when the box is formed. The edges of each of these panels 11 and lia bear against the inner surface of tape core it), and serve to maintain that core in proper position within the box, so that its periphery lies inwardly of the edges of bottom 3 and top 2., and also is spaced apart from sidewalls i and 5. The tape Wound upon core l0` is thus preserved safe from bruising.

Tab panel i3 is secured to the top surface of top 2 in any suitable way; eg., as by the use of a pressure-sensitive adhesive, or by glue of any conventional kind.

Ears 14, on central panel 12, bear against the inner surface of core iii (or panel 12 may be pushed downwardly, so that ears 14 will underly core lil) and thus serve to maintain the tongue 7 in proper position Within the open area of core 10.

Having described my invention, what I claim is:

A blank of cellulosic sheet material c ut `and scored to have the fol-lowing portions in the following sequence: a top panel, a rst side panel, a bottom panel, a second side panel, a flap, a first core-aligning panel, a central panel, a second corealigning panel and a tab, each of said named portions being integral with the portion immediately previously named, each portion being joined to the previously named portion along a corresponding edge, so that all of said portions extend in side by side relationship, said top panel being formed with an opening, said opening being free of any iiaps or tabs integral with the perimeter of said opening,`said blank being adapted to be folded and secured to constitute a box for a roll of strip material wound upon a core, said core-aligning panels and said central panel together forming a tongue portion adapted to be received Within said opening when said blank is folded, each of said core-aligning panels then extending perpendicularly to said top panel and said bottom panel, said central panel then extending parallel to said bottom panel in juxtaposition therewith, within the perimeter of said opening; said tab being aiixed to the top surface of said top panel, said blank being maintained in `folded upright position essentially by said roll of strip material therein. i
