Hispack 2015, Barcelona, Spain, April 21 - 24
14.04.2015 | Silgan Closures, Hall P2, Level 0, Stand C331: SILGAN DEMONSTRATES ITS CLOSURE VERSATILITY
The extensive range of plastic and metal closures showcased at Hispack by Silgan Closures will demonstrate the company’s ability to devise quality solutions for a wide variety of food and drink packaging applications, providing a one-stop shop for all customer requirements and underlining its commitment to the important Spanish and Iberian markets.
Among the latest innovations will be user-friendly plastic sports closures and carton fitments, along with examples of the company’s bespoke design and printing service for customised metal caps
Recent plastic closure introductions on display include a large bore non-membrane gable top carton fitment, which combines one step opening with a reliable tear band function and is suitable for 1.75 litre gable top panels or greater. Another development is the 5 Gallon Flow Seal cap specifically designed for the HOD and water cooler market. Ergonomically designed, the closure has a flow in liner designed to improve the shape of the bottle, while its patented flow in technology is more forgiving of neck finishes that are slightly damaged. A further special feature is its easy tear off band.
Silgan will also highlight the enhancements available for its plastic closures such as capabilities for aseptic and hot filling, and oxygen scavenging, as well as a choice of decoration options.
Metal closures featured will focus on solutions for non-carbonated beverages and foods packed in glass or plastic containers, with aseptic, hot fill, pasteurisation and retort options. The stand will also demonstrate Silgan’s Total System Approach, which as well as tailoring the right closure for a specific customer application includes the supply of the appropriate sealing equipment along with full technical and sales support.
In addition, Silgan will demonstrate the benefits of its Litho Design Service for metal closures, an integrated printing facility that takes customer designs from concept to production in order to ensure that final artwork is accurately adapted to each closure type and diameter. Working closely with customers and their nominated agencies, Silgan’s specialists can advise on the best approach to achieve the required design, offering customers potential cost savings, for example by reducing the number of colours required in the final printing process.
Also on display will be the range of decoration options available for full personalisation of a closure, including multi-colour printing, speciality inks and coatings, matt and gloss finishes and shaping features.
Silgan Closures will be sharing its stand with Silgan Plastic Food Containers, one of the leaders in the manufacture and supply of high barrier containers for extended-life food products.
