Closures are essential to container packaging to maintain their safety and integrity. They help in preserving the freshness of the product and control dispensing.

An optimally designed container closure system can enhance a product’s appearance while ensuring long-term repurchasing by consumers. An effective closure should:

  • Seal the container
  • Protect the product within the container
  • Be tamper-proof
  • Easy to install in the packaging line, and
  • Easy to use for consumers

Closure materials

Container closure systems for packaging can be made from materials such as metal, plastic, glass, cork and rubber. The choice of the material will be based on the container, the type of product present within the container, the continuity of availability of the chosen material, the cost of materials, and any legislation applicable to certain materials.
