Since the beginning of automated production of closures, steel has been the primary material for caps. While the steel is very functional, it has its downfalls. Steel can rust. Steel is also more difficult to form tight bends which is the reason sharp edges and points are found on some current steel closures. Aluminum eliminates rust and corrosion. Aluminum can accept tighter bends, creating smooth edges. Aluminum is also more flexible and requires less pressure to apply the closure.
Tecnocap, with its 135+ years of experience, has developed an aluminum closure which could make all other metal beer and soda pop beverage closures obsolete.
Savings You Can Seen Daily
Each day you bottle your product, inevitably, you will have a percentage of failures. Keeping those failures to a minimum is a constant battle. SuperC significantly reduces failures due to the low application head pressure required. Capping head pressure for SuperC can be less than 350 PSI which is a reduction my more than 50% of normal application pressures. Lower spoilage means higher profits.
SuperC provides a real opportunity for even greater savings. The lower application head pressure means your bottles can be made lighter, up to 20% lighter. Your savings just keeps growing.
SuperC runs on standard filling lines at conventional speeds. Capping with SuperC will more than double the speed of filling lines which currently use ROPP closures, at a lower overall cost.
