Amcor Rigid Plastics: ROPP aluminum screw cap PET bottles

Amcor’s unique roll-on pilfer-proof (ROPP) finish design for aluminum
 screw-cap PET bottles has been expanded to the spirits category with new 1.75L and 750ml stock
 PET bottles that offer light weight and smooth conversion from glass.

The ROPP finish design enables a smooth conversion from glass to
 PET with minimal changes on the glass filling line. The ability to use the
 same aluminum closure for glass on PET bottles is a major advantage,
 offering brand owners a similar filling experience at reduced change over
 and cost.

The new design mimics the premium look of
 glass and achieves high-quality aesthetics.

 The ROPP finish containers are designed to withstand the top load required
 for aluminum cap applications. The PET bottles meet all required testing 
to ensure a secure seal with the aluminum closure.

Various decorating 
options including custom printing and embossing are available to upscale
 the aluminum closure.

 The ROPP finish bottle design also permits the 
elimination of a neck support ring which enhances aesthetics. For the
1.75L stock bottle, a standard plastic pour restrictor–typically used 
for glass bottles–is incorporated inside the bottle neck to prevent
spillage.



For spirits makers, the switch to PET also delivers sustainability
 benefits. The containers are lightweight, unbreakable, and easy to
 transport. Lightweight packaging allows more cases per pallet/truck for 
fewer shipments, lower transportation costs, and reduced carbon emissions.



The two new stock bottles will be incorporated into Amcor’s DeLite brand,
 currently a complete line of PET bottles with aluminum screw-cap closures
 for the wine industry.
