Bericap has developed a closure that fits the PCO 1881 neck, building on its experience in the manufacture of closures for the syrup market.
Bericap’s press-on HC EV 28/27 one-piece hinge closure comes with a non-slit interbead band, which means that the closure cannot be removed from the bottles without being destroyed. A tear-off membrane assures the integrity of the product. Both functions ensure high safety against tampering, while a non-drip pouring lip prevents drips from the product after pouring.
Its introduction follows the earlier launch of Bericap’s EV 28/26 closure, which also fits the PCO 1881 neck but opens with a screw cap instead of a hinge-cap opening.
The closure is already being used by Switzerland-based Aproz Source Minérale for its new flip-top products, having already converted its bottles for mineral water and carbonated soft drinks to the PCO 1881 neck finish.
Using the same neck for Aproz’s syrup product was a logical next step towards concentrating on a single neck finish that is widely available in the market and offered by several pre-form suppliers. This move was made possible thanks to Bericap’s development of the HC EV 28/27 closure, which can simply be pressed onto the PCO 1881 neck. The essential functional features of the closure, such as the integrity of the product and proper pouring, are retained.
