Sabic unviels new caps and closures material
Sabic has developed a new multi-modal grade of HDPE with excellent organoleptics for this major application.

RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA: Sabic said that it will introduce its latest materials and solutions for drink, food and non-food packaging caps and closures.

Sabic has developed a new multi-modal grade of HDPE with excellent organoleptics for this major application. It combines an excellent environmental stress cracking resistance (ESCR) with good flow, allowing cap manufacturers to design very lightweight closures.

Sabic HDPE CCX027C polymer exhibits strong shear thinning, which means that even though it has a relatively low MFI (0.8 g/10 min, 2.16 kg), its flow characteristics during injection moulding are similar to those of a unimodal HDPE with an MFI more than three times higher.

“With our extensive range of polyethylenes and polypropylenes, Sabic has already built a strong position in caps and closures. But the caps & closure market is growing and changing all the time, and we are moving quickly to respond to current and future developments,” said Hans Pierik, Sabic's global caps and closures segment leader.

“Having a new global segment organization for Caps & Closure shows our commitment to a customer-driven strategy and industry focus. On the development side, it will help us bring innovations to market more quickly, while our improved and dedicated sales and technical support people will be able to respond more effectively to service needs of customers and OEMs,” added Ahmed Al-Musfer, director of global marketing & industry solutions at Sabic.

Sabic will present at the Plastic Closures Innovations Conference in Berlin. The company is the headline sponsor, the company will discuss its new caps & closures industry segment, launched at the beginning of the year.

It will also introduce its latest materials and solutions for drink, food and non-food packaging caps and closures, and outline its latest measures for addressing issues in the circular economy.
