Silgan to display new metal closures at Drinktec
Manufacturer of plastic bottle caps Silgan Closures will be showcasing its metal and plastic closure solutions for the food and drink markets at Drinktec 2017.
Silgan maintains that its new metal closure solutions demonstrate its ability to meet current market trends and requirements.
It goes on to state that the new 54mm and 60mm PRH PT (Press-On, Twist-Off) closures for baby food jars enable larger size neck finishes in order to facilitate easier access and spooning out of the product.
This has been achieved through a redesigned glass finish that allows the height of the closure to be reduced at the edge so that less material is needed, while enabling the closure diameter to be increased to 54mm and 60mm from the more traditional 51mm.
