ASTERIX is the new plastic closure made in Wisecap® for the new GME30.40 neck finish, a new voluntary standard currently being finalized within the European context. GME30.40 neck finish belongs to the 26/22 neck finishes family and has been specifically designed to deliver a low weight and high-performance solution for various types of drinks with special attention to soft drinks.


ASTERIX was also created in order to provide a concrete and adequate response to the new packaging specifications and, in particular, to the requirements for tethered closures.

The development of a new system neck finish/closure represents a good opportunity to combine the research for ever higher performances and light-weighting of the packaging components.

ASTERIX is the result of these efforts and of Wisecap®'s Research and Development activity, which has led to the definition of a product suitable for the most extreme conditions of use. But it also represents an excellent alternative for those markets/customers who have adopted the 26mm neck for their products.

ASTERIX is available in three different tethered patterns: BELTY2 - SECURECAP2 - HO2. 

This is to give WISECAP® customers a wide choice that guarantees compliance with EU standards and the possibility of choosing the most appropriate solution in terms of image, functionality, and consumer experience. 

ASTERIX is a new technological proposal that adds to the already wide portfolio of WISECAP® products, combining absolute performance with a wide range of solid solutions.
