Plastipak Packaging launches a Crown Finish bottle at BrauBeviale 2015
Plastipak Packaging (formerly APPE), a world leader in rigid plastic innovation with over 30 years’ experience, is proud to announce the launch of a crown finish bottle, its latest PET innovation for the beverage industry. Designed to be capped with a metal crown closure, the bottle is suitable for applications such as beer, cider, alcopops and juice shots.
Plastipak’s CrownFinish range offers the lightest weight crown finish PET bottles in Western Europe* with three standard bottle sizes available; 275ml, 330ml and 500ml. The range is available in clear (with a UV light blocker), green or amber. The CrownFinish PET bottles cannot be resealed, are unbreakable and are an ideal solution for mass-events such as concerts, festivals and sporting fixtures.
To ensure products reach the consumer in perfect condition, without compromising taste, quality or appearance, Plastipak’s CrownFinish has been developed with multilayer barrier technology that protects against oxygen ingress and reduces CO2 loss. This maintains and preserves the colour, taste and carbonisation levels of beer and cider and can provide up to 12 months filled product shelf life.
CrownFinish can be delivered as preforms for blowing in to bottles at the customer’s site, or as pre-blown bottles. Standard bottle shapes are available, or should volumes allow, fully customised bottle shapes can also be developed.
Up to 85% lighter than glass equivalents, CrownFinish bottles offers manufacturers and retailers the opportunity to achieve significant carbon footprint reductions not only in terms of packaging material, but also in the logistical chain. CrownFinish is recyclable in the PET stream.
This is an innovation that needs to be seen. Visitors and media representatives are invited to visit Plastipak’s stand (#125 in Hall 4) at BrauBeviale to find out more about this exciting new addition to the Plastipak’s range of PET products.
