Hotfill/retort closure

September 1, 2011




Designed for hotfill and retort applications such as soup, nutritional beverages, coffee and tea, the Crown 40mm Ideal closure is compatible with plastic or glass containers. The closure has a plastisol-lined metal disk that forms an airtight seal against the container to guard against oxygen ingress and an easy-to-grip plastic band. Logos, messaging and nutritional value can be printed on the metal disk; different flavors can be communicated with the colored plastic bands. The closure is fully recyclable.
