Performance Packaging of Nevada: Safer cap for flexible pouches
The SipP cap for flexible spouted pouches from Performance Packaging of Nevada uses horizontal and vertical air-ducts to allow critical air-flow in case of accidental lodging of the cap in the mouth or throat, and features a visible tamper-evident band when the product is opened that remains on the cap and not on the spout where it could potentially come off.
Designed for health & energy, fruit purees, organic products, and baby food, as well as products such as non-food and medical applications, the SipP cap's ergonomic enhancements include deep ridges on its exterior which, combined with its 32mm size (which exceeds the width regulated by the U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission), make the SipP cap easier to grip for opening. Made from either high density polyethylene (HDPE) or polypropylene (PP), the SipP cap is suitable for hot-filling or retort applications. As an environmental feature, by introducing a special additive to the resin, the SipP cap can be biodegradable.
In addition to hot, cold or ambient filling, the SipP cap can also be used for frozen or retort applications and has been successfully tested on major pouch-filling line machinery produced by such companies as Toyo Jidoki Co., Gualapack, Yuedong, and Velotus.
