A sports cap developed by RPC Massmould and RPC Astra Plastique is said to provide improved consumer convenience, product safety, and contemporary design.
The Secure Flip features one-handed opening by using an ergonomically designed thumb tab. The tamper-evident band within the closure breaks on first opening. The consumer is then allowed access to the cap that opens to a stable 180 degrees. An audible click confirms that it is either fully open or re-closed.
Unlike some sports caps with detachable tabs that have to be thrown away, both parts of the Secure Flip tamper-evident band are retained within the closure.
A second tamper-evident Tuck Under Band on the base of the closure provides a visual indication that the bottle has been opened. This helps create effective tamper evident for light-weight neck finishes, as well as optimising efficiency on filling lines. The Triskeles, a three-legged feature within the mouth of the closure acts as a barrier to contamination.
RPC Massmould’s manufacturing mechanism moulds the Secure Flip closure body in the closed position, allowing it to incorporate an IP protected hinge for a more compact overall design and enhanced aesthetics on-shelf.
Secure Flip is current available in 29.25 and 18.81 neck finishes and can be customised for particular brands and products.
