Closure Systems International (CSI): 28mm closure for the beverage industry
Ultra-light Omni mini XP delivers extra performance and extra protection.
Closure Systems International introduces Omni mini XP - the newest, lightest and best-performing closure for carbonated soft drinks and sparkling beverages in the industry.
Omni mini XP is an ultra lightweight, one-piece / linerless 28mm closure, compatible with the 1881 bottle finish. Weighing less than two grams, this closure delivers best-in-class capping application performance, CO2 retention, impact resistance, and raw material savings for brand owners producing sparkling beverages.
CSI’s Omni mini XP meets or exceeds all global bottler protocols across the widest range of distribution conditions. The closure is precision-engineered to enhance capping application performance, which results in lower defect rates and higher productivity for beverage bottlers who rely on delivering high production output every day. Customer testing has proven that this new closure reduces cocked caps, reduces variability across colors, and reduces sensitivity to bottling line speed changes. The result is more efficient bottling and lower cost of operation.
Omni mini XP also delivers high impact resistance and industry-leading CO2 performance. Despite its lightweight design, Omni mini XP passes extreme drop test protocols, keeping the package secure even when exposed to harsh distribution and retail display conditions. The robust seal design also protects the integrity of the brand, providing the highest level of product freshness for consumers.
In addition to providing advanced performance for beverage customers and consumers, the new closure is made using fully recyclable polyethylene resin and delivers maximum source reduction and a reduced carbon footprint. Omni mini XP can be used across the full range of beverage packages, ranging from 250 ml to 3 liter non-returnable PET bottles, and several closure knurl patterns (24, 24/120, 60, 120) are available.
