Dispensing closures manufacturer Aptar has introduced Uno 38mm sport cap, which is a one-piece closure developed by using polypropylene (PP).
The Uno 38mm cap has been designed to fulfill the requirements and performance of the flip-top design, as well as serve as an option for translucent or opaque colors.
Uno closure, which offers one-hand opening and eclosing, is available in two 38mm neck finishes such as three-lead and three-lead starts.
The company has provided larger and wide mouth neck finish for the new closure, enabling to use for aseptically processed and shelf stable beverages such as juices, drinkable dairy, ready-to-drink coffees and teas, preservative free drinks and water.
The new closure can be used for single serve packaging formats, and is better suitable for on-the-go beverage consumption.
Uno 38mm closure also offers benefits such as convenience, hygiene, resealablity and advanced hydration.
