Europe: Sports closure at drinktec 2017

Bericap will be introducing a two-piece sports closure, allowing a two-colour look with a transparent polypropylene shell and a coloured high-density polyethylene pourer section at drinktec 2017 from September 11 to 15 at Munich, Germany.

The sports closure is designed with a tear strip, offering tamper evidence functionality for the over-cap.

It will also be available with bridges where they can be broken by moving the over-cap upward with the thumb.

The reactive Double Galileo hinge allows an opening angle of 180°, so that the over-cap no longer comes into contact with the cheeks.

The hinge is compliant with British Soft Drinks Association’s safety standards.

Meanwhile, its Thumb’Up Crystal is available for the PCO 1881 and the 29/25 neck.

It is also feasible for the 26/22 neck.

The 28mm PCO1881 flat closure is developed for the still water market and saves another 14% weight compared to its predecessor.

It can also be used for non-carbonated soft drinks.

The closure has been validated for the nitrogen dosing allowing to pressurize light weight bottles for better bottle stability.
