With a strong and long-standing track record of capping metal containers with state of the art LDPE pourer devices, BERICAP is now also introducing a major innovative concept for metal can markets in general and businesses in the syrup industry that use metal cans in particular.
These markets traditionally use two-piece closures comprising of a screw-on top fitting and a threaded pourer pressed into the metal can piercing. This proven solution generally offers the best tightness and robustness against counterfeiting.
The metal can market is a fairly conservative market, so it is a real challenge for the manufacturer, can-maker and bottler to develop a new closure concept and launch it on the market.
In its VU HC SK 27/25, Bericap is delivering a new concept consisting of a one-piece hinged PP closure fitting its existing pourer range from 24 to 32 piercing diameters.
No more headaches for the bottler trying to configure a new closure for the preferred metal can – he can simply use the existing approved pourer on the same piercing.
The only change is the flip-top closure for the appropriate pourer, which comes with a reactive hinge made of PP to allow transparency.
Product integrity is ensured by means of a tear-off membrane which can be torn away after the hinged overcap has been opened. Clean pouring is enabled by an anti-drip feature on the pourer part.
