Consumer studies have shown that smaller neck sizes between 32 to 35 mm are more convenient for drinking compared to 38 mm neck diameter. Realizing the result of the consumer research, BERICAP developed the DoubleSeal™ 33 closure, which was brought to marketability on a 33 mm neck finish developed by Sidel. The closure was introduced to the Spanish market 2010.

The 33 mm solution is targeting the “On-The-Go” packs for juices, energy drinks and teas. Especially when people want to drink out of the bottle directly the 33 mm diameter provides a better drinking comfort for the consumer. It is also an alternative closure diameter for larger bottle sizes for juices and milk when light weighting is the main target. The 33 mm neck size supports furthermore a distinction of the product on the shelf. Neck and closure weigh together less than 6 g and therefore it support the effort of the industry to save costs, but also reduces the CO2 emission.

BERICAP’s DoubleSeal™ 33 is equipped with a folded tamper evidence band for safe breaking and a specific design of the sealing lip for tight sealing to ensure product integrity. The DoubleSeal™ 33 can be well decontaminated with all standard decontamination methods known in the market for aseptic filling.

Garcia Carrión was the first customer taking advantage of the persuading characteristics of DoubleSeal™ 33. One of the main targets was weight saving, but to keep at the same time product appearance distinct on the shelf.
