Drinktec 2017 – Silgan Closures

11.09.2017 | Hall A4, Stand 531


New wider closures for the baby food market from Silgan Closures are helping to meet consumer demands for greater convenience and ease of use.

Until recently, closures on baby food jars were typically 51mm but customer feedback from a leading manufacturer indicated that users found it awkward to spoon out product from bigger-sized jars such as 160g, 190g and 250g.

The Silgan design team therefore devised a completely redesigned glass finish that allows the height of the closure to be reduced at the edge so that less material is needed, while enabling the closure diameter to be increased to 54mm and 60mm. As a result both the finish and cap are much larger – around 42% for the 60mm version. This helps to deliver effortless opening and easier removal of the product for an enhanced brand experience.

The new PRH PT (Press-On, Twist-Off) closures are able to run at the same high speeds as existing closures on customer filling lines.
