Sealing products in containers or jars with plastic screw caps is nothing new, but is becoming more common in industries where compliance is essential and the threat of product tampering is rampant.
Closure lining from Wadding Solutions can be used for all sorts of products, from food to agricultural, including:
The lift-and-peel seal on the top of a milk bottle that you peel off before you pour
The tiny induction seal liner you peel off before you use a tube of moisturiser
The tabbed induction seal you peel off before you guzzle a sports drink
The freshness seal that covers your protein powder or vitamin tablets
The liner that keeps peanut butter fresh and prevents any leakage of oil
The protective liner you remove from your insecticide before you mix a solution to feed your plants or kill your weeds
The foam gasket seal that is in many screw caps, but not often noticed.
All food-related products going overseas in today’s market require the packaging to have a form of tamper evidence. Supply without the interruption of damage is a crucial element of export, not only for the food industry, but also the veterinary, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical sectors.
By using a combination of appr
opriate packaging (a hermetic seal in a tamper evident screw cap), exporters can confidently send their products overseas, knowing their goods will reach the destination without interference before going to market.
Closure lining offers the manufacturer tamper evidence, but can also assist with increased shelf life and the ability to freight a product without it leaking – it only takes one leaked item to contaminate an entire shipment of product, causing significant disruption.
