A paint container, comprising a body (10) with a polygonal cross section, presenting upper edge portions (13) and a lid (20) having lateral edge portions (21) which are removably seated and tightly retained in a seat (15) defined along the upper edge portions (13) of the body (10). The lid (20) presents a lower face (20a) incorporating a downwardly projecting support means (22) which is engaged with an adjacent upper edge portion (13) of the body (10) after the opening of the lid (20), in order to maintain the latter with its adjacent lateral edge portion (21) externally seated against the lateral wall (11) of the body (10) and in an inclined position with its lower face (20a) forming a paint drip tray, said support means (22) defining a deflecting chute (25) for directing, to the interior of the body (10), the paint that is gravitationally dripping down the internal face (20a) of the lid (20).
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
