Abstract

New Closure Applications

Sustainability is on the minds of consumers and plastic dispensing system manufacturers alike. The European SUP directive and ongoing light-weighting initiatives are driving meaningful change towards the commercialization of sustainable solutions.  In this presentation, innovative tethered closure designs are shown and the values of each are explained.  Additionally, the merits of the new light-weight 26/22 closure for CSD applications are described.
