Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9834847A2] Disclosed is a closing device comprising a container shoulder, a container head for applying the contents therein, and a closing cap, wherein said cap can be moved by using its rotational clamping function. Said closure, which is also known as a fractal closure, is provided for containers closed by a cap, irrespective of their size and embodiment, and which have a built-in container head with an opening to take out doseable media. According to the invention, threaded segments (1) are located in a narrow or optionally cylindrical base area (2) of the container head which is directly joined to the shoulder of the container (4). The application cone (3) follows onto the base area (2) of the container head which comprises the threaded area. The threaded segments (1), which are configured as a simple upward-winding thread, comprise few structural elements and are inconspicuous. Said segments can be configured as lines, dots or lugs. As a further characteristic of the invention, the cover plate (7) of the closure cap (5) has openings or windows (8) in the area of the inner cylinder (6) of the closure cap (5) and a closure lid (10) held by strips (9). Parts of a freshness seal (14) that is center-fixed on the face of the application cone (3) of the container head can be seen from the outside even when the container is closed. The windows (8, 12) on the closure can be provided in any number or shape. The advantages gained by making the freshness seal (14) visible are used to make savings in material and/or to provide a more advantageous design.
