Image Number 17 for United States Patent #5765709.
An end piece for a drawn and ironed container is disclosed. The end piece has a score which defines an openable section for accessing the contents of the container. The score includes at least one reservoir for post repair material which is deposited into the main portion of the score while the end piece is rotated. The reservoir functions to receive post repair material which is forced out of the main portion of the score during this rotation of the end piece and/or to actually generate forces which counteract the centrifugal forces exerted on the post repair material such that it is retained within the main portion of the score.
