TYPES OF CLOSURES FOR BOTTLES, JARS, AND TINS
Burch Bottle offers many different types of closures compatible with our various wholesale bottles, jars, and containers. The type of closure that works best for your product will depend on a variety of factors, including which jar, bottle, or container you choose for your packaging solution. We recommend thinking about both presentation and functionality when choosing a packaging closure method.
On this page we have broken the available lids, tops, and other bottle and jar closures into dispensing and non-dispensing closures. Dispensing closures work well for products that will be used in measured amounts, while non-dispensing closures work better for beverages or more viscous liquids.
- Continuous thread caps can be metal or plastic and have various liner options. Categorized by threads which wrap continuously around a given finish, a few products that traditionally use continuous thread caps include peanut butter and mayonnaise.
Also know and Twist Off (T/O) caps, lug caps are compatible with containers whose threads are non-continuous. Lugs on the interior of a lug cap, correspond with the non-continuous threads and close by a partial rotation.
- A style of closure where the top surface is rounded. Dome caps create a sleek appearance and are often used in conjunction with Round Bottom Jars.
- HDPE lid with sealing gasket.
PHENOLIC POLYCONE CAPS
- Phenolic caps feature a LDPE cone (Polycone), which seals the inside diameter of a given container making phenolic caps ideal for chemicals, essential oils and other aggressive products.
- Series of vertical grooves around the outside edge which help the end user establish a grip to remove a given closure. Ribbing can be found on many styles of plastic caps such as lotion pumps, snap-top caps, as well as standard, non-dispensing plastic closures.
- The opposite of a “Ribbed Closure”, smooth closures are often preferred for their visual appeal. Smooth closures can be found in many styles, including lotion pumps, snap top caps, flip top caps and standard, non-dispensing plastic caps.
- Flexible plastic closure with grooves which mate to a particular plastic tub and provide a leak-proof seal.
DISC TOP CAP
