Lighter weight one-piece plastic-bottle closure
Bericap’s 1-piece DoubleSeal™ 1881 SuperShorty® closure is said to achieve weight savings of 20% in the closure and bottle finish. The closure features BERICAP DoubleSeal technology, a 2-in-1 Outer plus Inner seal in a single piece, liner-less closure.
DoubleSeal closures provide lateral, opposing-force pressure from both the outside and inside, effectively supporting instead of distorting the neck. Provides a tight, secure seal to retain carbonation. Made with HDPE. PCO 1881-compatible DoubleSeal SuperShorty system fits smoothly into existing operations. Traditional 1810 systems weigh 8.0 g, while the new 1881 system is just 6.22 g.
