BERICAP reaches North American commercial market with one-piece hot fill closure

March 19/2012

(thomasnet) -- BERICAP North America announced today that its exclusive DoubleSeal(TM) cap technology is now commercially available in the North American market. The design is considered unique for hot fill applications since it will support, rather than distort, the finish when compared to traditional two-piece closures that cannot hold the finish when softened by hot filled product.

DoubleSeal provides advanced tamper evidence and anti-sabotage protection, whereby the band breaks before the seal is broken. Better seal integrity, easier opening capability and improved economics complete a dynamic new offering.

"Traditional two-piece liner-and-shell top seal closures require considerable torque in order to properly seal the container," explains Dave Andison, President and Chief Operating Officer of BERICAP North America.

"In hot fill applications, the bottle neck is softened by the heat from the product itself. Consequently, the side and down-pressure from applying the closure puts considerable stress on the bottle finish. This can cause it to distort or ovalize, which can lead to leaking and product contamination."
