SuperShorty 35 for A Distinguished Look

Plastic enclosures manufacturer BERICAP of Budenheim, Germany has enlarged its SuperShorty closure family with the SuperShorty 35 that has been designed for the safe venting of carbonated soft drinks (CSD) containing up to 8 gram CO2/l. Safe venting means that the risk of blow-off has been reduced drastically and gives a user-friendly element if consumers unscrew the closure with excessive speed.

The one-piece closure is equipped with all main features and benefits of the SuperShorty family: the well-proven DoubleSeal system ensures product integrity and guarantees good CO2 retention also under hot climate conditions. The well-proven Tamper Evident (TE) slit-band supports easy application and guarantees easy opening for the consumer. Once opened the TE-band is retained on the neck.

The one-start neck corresponds with SuperShorty 35 and has a neck weight of only 5-grams.

Market studies have shown that the 35-mm neck finish is seen as offering true ready to drink convenience for the consumer. This SuperShorty 35 is both a technical and marketing solution for brand owners and packers wishing to distinguish their brands on the shelf.
