Lightweight closure

Global Closure Systems has launched a new standard closure for the water market with a lightweight 26mm neck finish solution.

According to the company, the beverage market is highly standardised and is moving faster and faster towards further light weighting. The objective of Gravity II is to provide an interchangeable solution by offering a single thread closure while maintaining the same overall finish dimensions as the three thread 26/22 (GME 30.28) and allowing a simple customer line conversion.

Developed for both flat and carbonated water products, the closure is also a lightweight finish solution in its own right, with 2.05g against 3.85g for a PCO-1881 finish, and is 45 per cent lighter than a PCO-16 finish.
