Caps & Closures
Our current ‘on-the-go’ lifestyle requires lightweight products that are easy to use. This trend has led to smaller, more convenient packaging. With increasing demand for convenience packaging and growing concerns about product safety and security, SABIC’s portfolio is tailored to be used for optimized, lighter caps and closure design and processing.
Whether the application requirement is good organoleptic, environmental stress cracking resistance or low-stress whitening, SABIC’s products may deliver the performance needed for caps, closures and dispensing systems. SABIC® PP, PE and ETP products are great candidates for use in optimized, lighter caps and closure designs, combined with easy processing.
