Beverage closure produced using Bacomex™ compression moulding technology
In order to be totally protected against oxygen permeation, a beverage container must also consider the closure system. Today’s high barrier closures require the incorporation of a liner or oxygen scavenging system. Applying Bacomex™ technology to the closures allows the production of high barrier closures in a one step operation using compression moulding technology.
  • High barrier against oxygen and CO2 permeation and aroma migration
  • One step production process
  • Based on well established Sacmi compression moulding technology platform
  • Identical closure including greatly improved barrier protection
