International manufacturer of caps and closures, United Caps, has launched an effective and sustainable tethered closure for carton packaging, 23 H-PAK.
The patent-pending closure includes a tamper-evident band that keeps all parts intact for easier recycling. It is designed to make an instant connection with established filling lines to ensure easy integration with existing processes and fast production-line implementation.
United Caps CEO, Benoit Heckes, said: “One of the stand-out features of this new tethered closure is its audible click when opening, a satisfying sound that lets consumers know their closure is in an open position – once opened, it is in the optimal position for use and the cap stays in position for the perfect pour.
He continued: “In addition to its ability to keep all parts intact for recycling, its super-strong hinge ensures the box-fresh experience consumers are looking for. It not only enhances the user experience but also helps to protect the environment, a critical R&D driver for Unites Caps.”
In addition to its tethering features, the 23 H-PAK is a cost-effective solution for cartons. Its lightweight design reduces exposure to plastic taxes and helps to reduce business running costs.
