Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2015084369A1] Containers having improved vacuum-resistance and aesthetic features are provided. In a general embodiment, the present disclosure provides a body (10) including at least one indented rib (22) and at least one indented panel (24). The at least one indented rib and the at least one indented panel are continuous around a circumference of the body in a substantially horizontal plane to maintain an even vertical compression of the body. At the same time, the panels provide a substantially flat surface for a sleeve for the container. The invention is particularly adapted for lightweight containers.
