PROCAP launches one of the lightest and most cost-attractive reliable closures for the edible oils, vinegars and sauces market

12 January 2015

The original design of 29/21 GREEN1P includes PROCAP-patented technology and offers real convenience to end users.

PROCAP introduces 29/21 GREEN1P that answers the specific needs of fillers in the mass markets of edible oils, vinegars and sauces. The new solution is one of the most cost-interesting and lightest closures currently available for 29/21 PET neck finishes for this sector.

PROCAP is already a market leader in the development of solutions unique to the edible oils sector and this new innovation demonstrates the Group’s ability to anticipate evolving needs, specifically in terms of cost and respect for the environment. PROCAP has invested heavily in the design of a lightweight solution that allows fillers to save both on cost and CO2 emissions. At just 1.2g, 29/21 GREEN1P is much lighter than its predecessor. It is available in a wide range of colours and also offers the possibility for a brand logo or other information to be engraved on the top of the closure.

The solution’s unique body and seal skirt design make it extremely tolerant. It is therefore an ideal closure for capping lines that are not optimally set. Even when capping is slightly skewed, no crooked cap or leakage failures result. Its olive skirt also ensures that the container remains leak-free throughout the entire supply chain, especially during transportation and in storage when it may be most at risk.  

29/21 GREEN1P also allows manufacturers to offers real advantages to their own customers. PROCAP has patented a pioneering technology that moves the two tabs of the TE band up the top of the closure during capping. This makes them especially easy to grasp at first opening for both right- and left-handed consumers. Product safety is assured as the entire TE band must be removed on first opening offering clear evidence of tampering.

Following the first instance of opening, PROCAP’s design provides real convenience for subsequent usage of the product. The closure can be opened using just one hand, leaving the other free to stir, for example. The cover cannot be misplaced as thanks to a handy hinge it remains connected to the closure. It can also be moved easily around the neck for maximum comfort in the event the container features a specific shape such as a handle.

The new closure is produced in accordance with ISO 14001 and the GREEN process used by PROCAP, making it extremely environmentally friendly. It is also fully BRC/Iop certified.
