Kortec Inc. brings its barrier-layer technology to one-piece caps and closures — helping to better preserve freshness in foods and beverages. They also are less expensive than traditional two-piece closures, according to the company in
Kortec is known for its multilayer technology for producing PET containers. The barrier caps can be made in a single molding operation, with no need for a secondary step.
“We can now produce an entire container, including the closure, with our multilayer technology,” said Russell Bennett, Kortec's vice president of sales and marketing. “This allows for the production of beverage and food containers that will stay fresh for much longer time periods on store shelves.”
Bennett said barrier caps usually are made of two or more pieces, the plastic cap and the seal. “What we have developed allows production of a one-piece cap that has the same or better performance,” he said.
