Cormack Packaging  have announced access to compression moulded closures for the beverage market. The difference between compression moulded and injection moulded technologies is that the injection moulding technology uses a screw to force molten plastic through a gate into a form while compression molding technology uses semi molten plastic being forced into a shape under pressure.

Compression moluded closures have the following benefits:

  • Light-weight but stronger closure
  • Double compression moulded process producing a light-weight closure
  • Compression process minimises closure stress points for stronger caps
  • Tamper evident band offers low and consistent application forces
  • Better flushing capabilities
  • Compression liner for better sealing vacuum retention = product stability
  • Available in barrier, non-barrier and custom options
  • Low application torques
  • Applied in-lbs: 25 in-lbs
  • Removal in-lbs: 15 in-lbs
  • Requires less or no steam/heat on filling and capping
  • Leaves liner lubricated with their natural polymers (slip) which aids removal
  • Band encourages smooth, consistent and low application forces
  • High speed capping of 800 bpm+
  • Weight of 2.2 grams
  • Packing 950 cartons x 2500 pieces = 2.325 million
  • Available in sizes of 33mm, 38mm and 43mm
