We understand your business

Most dairy products are sold in cartons or HDPE bottles, although there is increasing usage of PET bottles with 38mm 3 or 2 start-off tread. HDPE packaging generally features a customised neck. Sterilised and ultra-high temperature (UHT) products require solutions that can cope with difficult packing conditions and delicate filling lines.

UNITED CAPS is continually innovating to maintain our position as the supplier of choice of advanced closure systems for existing and emerging dairy product offerings. Our original 38 PROFLATSEAL (S/L) cap is extremely reliable and allows fillers to select the most ideal closure to meet their specific requirements. It has set new standards in the industry and continues to be very well received. Our new 38 PROSAFE product features a double inner skirt to provide a more performant seal than any other closure currently available for 38 Tetratop finish bottles. UNITED CAPS’s state-of-the-art 38 PROLINE closure has been especially devised to assure reliable and efficient capping of sensitive non-carbonated beverages, such as milks. Solutions such as these expand our already significant portfolio for the dairy market and strengthen our reputation as being a trustworthy and professional supplier.
