Caps & Closures Showcase - 5/1/2011
May 1, 2011
Silgan IPEC’s product portfolio includes a range of 38 millimeter dairy closures consisting of a virtually leak-proof ISO (screw-on), consumer-friendly ISS (screw on or snap-on/screw-off), industry staple lightweight ITT (tamper tail), classic 5-lead ICD (screw-on) and easy-to-apply ISC (snap on/off), all used for gallon, half-gallon and single-service HDPE and PET applications.
SIG Combibloc is expanding its product range by adding a new screw cap - the combiCap. The new closure mechanism weighs just 1.85 grams (0.065 ounces). Less weight means fewer raw materials are used, which is good news for the environment.

Tetra Pak unveiled a series of new closures designed to meet the diverse needs of the global beverage market - DreamCap, LightCap and HeliCap. DreamCap, an ergonomically designed closure made especially for on-the-go consumption, is aesthetically pleasing, easy to drink from, highly portable, simple to dispose of and safe. The cap’s high neck and over-the-edge design offer easy and comfortable access to the carton spout, allowing improved control of liquid flow. Meanwhile, LightCap was designed to keep plastic use and cost to a minimum, making it particularly suited for larger-sized closures, whereas HeliCap combines one-step easy opening with distinctive tamper evidence.

Portola Packaging introduced Steri-Shield liner-less plug closure technology for aseptic beverage packages, including juices, isotonics, dairy, energy drinks, milk, vitamin waters, drinkable yogurt, teas and more. These closures are compression molded using a proprietary resin blend, which includes high-density polyethylene. The end result is a lightweight closure that does stress crack, back-off, etc. during the sterilization and/or distribution process. Additionally, the structure can withstand an aseptic sterilization environment of up to 140°F. Steri-Shield plug closures can be made in a variety of sizes ranging from 38-43 millimeters, with or without a tamper-evident band.

The Pure-Twist cap for long shelf life or aseptic products has an anti-drip lip and an integrated cutter that creates an opening the moment the cap is unscrewed.
