The TPE technology

Different to the earlier technology, where liquid PVC compounds were injected into the caps which then required high temperatures for curing, TPE technology is supplied in granulate form and is liquefied using extrusion and applied directly into the closure. It only requires formation after application and does not require curing. This saves energy, reduces CO2 emissions and reduces production costs effectively. Working with granulate is a lot cleaner, and generates less waste. Therefore implementing this procedure meets the requirements of sustainable production and resource conservation highly.

Due to the fact that there is no liquid plasticizer for flexibility/elasticity being used, the TPE granulates minimizes the potential risks for migration of undesirable substances. When there is nothing in it, there can be no extractions and therefore no migrations into the filled goods. Thus the demands for pure foods, safety and consumer protection can be realized.

With the use of TPE technology in the field of lug and twist off metal closures not only meets the stringent new specifications for all filling goods, but once again emphasizes the competence of ACTEGA in offering innovative solutions to the closure industry.
