In large parts of the edible oil industry, the standard 29/21 neck weighting 2.74 g is used for 1 litre PET bottles. This neck size was developed at a time when plastic closures were meant to fit both glass bottles and PET bottles. Today edible oil is predominantly packed in PET bottles and so BERICAP has developed a range of closures for a 26mm neck diameter to support the move towards saving on costs and materials. The new closure neck weights a mere 1.37 g. 

The inner diameter of the new neck is identical to the previous 29mm diameter, thus eliminating the need for costly modifications of the filling nozzles of the filler and still providing the same flow rate. 

The BERICAP CTC IP 26/13 closures ensure a good brand recognition due to a top embossment and are easy to apply on high speed line.

The new generation closures offer all functionalities expected by consumers, such as tamper evidence with tear-off band, tightness with robust inserted pourer, consumer friendly with hinge and state of the art a dripless feature, that is still maintaining the bottle clean after several uses.
