Novembal launches a new sports cap, Novactive ® 28, featuring a revolutionary non-spill technology powered by SmartSeal®
Novembal launched a new sports cap equipped with patented non-spill technology from SmartSeal® for on-the-go beverages – a revolutionary and unique solution for beverage producers and consumers.
The answer to consumers' demand
With a consumer rise in demand towards sustainable packaging solutions with "on-the-go" features, Novembal embarked on a deep research journey to pursue the best offering for its customers and the consumers.
As a result, Novembal signed an exclusivity agreement with SmartSeal®, a European company headquartered in Norway specializing in valve technology.
No spill, No mess! Unique – Convenient – Sustainable
The new Novactive® 28, available in various colours for 1881 and 1810 neck finishes, is equipped with a unique and patented non-spill valve from SmartSeal®. The main features distinguishing the new closure from others available in the market are:
- Dust cap that locks at 180 degrees
- Secure seal allows pressurized contents up to 3 bar
- Upgraded Tamper-Evident band design stays attached to the cap to avoid littering
- 100% spill-proof / no-mess, for on-the-go consumption
There is a high level of quality and innovative features supporting the closure life cycle from the moulding process to the recycling.
Michelle Wycoff, Director New Business Development at Novembal, mentioned: "The new Novactive® 28 is a true game-changer for all beverage companies that want to offer a unique and differentiated solution to their consumers. The closure offers a comprehensive series of benefits from the moment they are on the shelf: a unique design, a variety of bright colours, and an ultra-clear closure with a dust cover. And, once the consumer experiences the 100% non-spill feature, they won't go back to the traditional sports cap! Consumers can turn the bottle upside-down, and no single drop will come out of the bottle. Combined with Novembal's extensive knowledge of the beverage market and customer service approach, our Novactive® 28 is, without a doubt, the best recipe for all beverage producers. Our objective is to have the best available technology at their fingertips”.
