In many packaging applications, plastic caps
offer unique and valuable qualities that make them an essential part of a product. They offer customizability, chemical stability and exceptional financial savings.
Caps are a key part of the plastic packaging industry, and there are many different types to choose from for a wide variety of products. For example, they can be used to protect bottles against damage and shipping, keep them fresh and provide a protective layer between the container and its contents.
A variety of different designs and materials are available, including plastic grips, which fit over sharp edges of objects such as garden tools, brooms, and kitchen equipment to give the user a better grip. They also provide a stylish look to items.
Plastic caps are an excellent way to add protection to goods during transport, and can be used to seal ends or openings of containers. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and thicknesses, as well as with threads for easier closure.
Choosing the right material for your application is important. For example, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a common choice for plastic caps and plugs because it is strong and resistant to impacts, traction, and temperatures.
While bottle caps are an important component of the plastic packaging industry, they represent a significant waste stream that is becoming increasingly complex and challenging to recycle. As a result, understanding their fate is critical to the overall circularity of cap production and recycling.
