Bericap has launched a press-in hinge polypropylene (PP) closure aimed at the metal can market.
The VU HC SK 27/25 closure fits its existing pourer range from 24 to 32 piercing diameters.
Product integrity is ensured by a tear-off membrane which can be torn away after the hinged overcap has been opened.
The only change for the bottler is the flip-top closure for the appropriate pourer, which comes with a reactive hinge to allow transparency and light, said Bericap.
The firm said the metal can market and businesses in the syrup industry that use the packaging traditionally use 2-piece closures comprising of a screw-on top fitting and a threaded pourer pressed into the metal can piercing.
