The tamper-evident 3-start closure is Coveris’s first non-dairy specific cap. Made of polyethylene it weighs 2.3g, is available in any color, can be decorated with screen print, debossing or embossing and also textured.
It will be sold in 3-start, 2-start, bore seal and non-bore seal variations for liner applications, and Coveris says there are no injection points to spoil the cap’s smooth lines.
Citing demand for 38mm closures, Coveris business development manager Jamie Clark told BeverageDaily.com: “This is why we have looked to join this market with a much improved product to what is currently available.”
Demand for 38mm closures is led by the fruit juice, fruit-flavored drink, smoothie and yogurt drink market, Clark said, with this closure size aimed at adults due to its larger size.
“We expect to see many people moving away from the older ratchet closures to this newer and more modern looking standard,” he said.
