With a 30% lower carbon footprint than a shrink film consumer pack, the paper-based TopClip is completely plastic-free and 100% renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. Furthermore, as it is made from less material and does not require glue, it is significantly more sustainable than other recently launched same-purpose packaging solutions on the market.
TopClip fully covers the top of the cans, protecting them from contamination and providing excellent branding opportunities. It has two die-cut holes so it can be handled easily in-store and has received excellent feedback in consumer tests.
Smurfit Kappa is currently working with several large automation suppliers to develop a full turnkey solution for interested customers.
