Portola Packaging, Inc., Naperville, Ill., introduced GreenLyte, a new line of plug-seal, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) 38 mm closures for single and multi-serve, hot-fill and aseptic beverage packaging applications.
GreenLyte one-piece closures represent a cost-effective, performance-driven alternative to traditional two-piece (closure plus liner) polypropylene (PP) types typically used for juices, ready-to-drink teas, isotonics, enhanced waters, low-acid nutraceuticals and high-end, aseptic-filled beverage products.
Because the GreenLyte line is made from high-density polyethylene, resin is less expensive than pricing volatility-prone polypropylene, which is the material from which most two-piece closures are made.
