Agro Chemicals

UNITED CAPS is the leading supplier of caps for Europe’s agro chemicals industry. Our highly-secure, UN-approved closures are used in the packaging of liquid and powdered herbicides, insecticides, pesticides and fungicides. We have designed a unique moulded TE band (ratchet- or snap-type) that is patented and sets the standard in Europe and the US. With a range of solutions developed to fit 45, 50 and 63 mm neck finishes, we have a closure to suit all containers.

To ensure chemical, pharmaceutical and hazardous products remain secure in domestic settings, we offer a dedicated selection of child resistant closures (CRC). These are available in a choice of diameters and colours, and combine child resistance with tamper evidence (TE). Every UNITED CAPS solution for the agro chemicals sector meets all local legal requirements and fits all filling systems.

Efficient transportation requires that containers are stacked. They must remain tightly closed at all times. Based on our wide experience with chemical packaging, we have devised a selection of high-standard caps for 5, 10, 20 and 25 litre stackable, UN-compliant high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and co-extrusion (COEX) containers. Different liner combinations are possible depending on cap design and application. We also offer direct venting and venting liners.

We provide:

  • Flexible service, short lead times and competitive pricing thanks to our highly efficient production lines

  • Safe handling on automated capping equipment

  • Easy opening at low unscrewing torque for end users

  • A patented design that protects the tamper evident (TE) band

  • Better protection of dangerous products; complete CRC range features external TE band

  • Easy foil cutting thanks to the integration of a cutter on top of the cap

  • High resistance to stress cracking due to specially selected raw material grades

  • Compliance with UN testing

  • An inclusive set of certificates for standard vessels for faster and easier introduction of new products

  • Well-established proven experience in liners for chemicals resulting in extensive range available

  • Service and technical assistance

Our products are suitable for a wide range of chemicals used in the home, such as DIY, swimming pool, garden and automotive products, caustic soda, bleach tablets, heating petrol and pharmaceuticals. For the transportation of acids and alkaline products, agrochemicals, photochemicals, motor oils, detergents and cleaning products, heating petrol and food ingredients (concentrates, edible oils), many customers opt for UNITED CAPS’s first-rate caps and closure solutions.

We understand your business

Almost all agro chemical packaging must be UN approved. All UNITED CAPS solutions for this sector have been specifically conceived to withstand intense chemical resistance and mechanical testing. With in-depth knowledge of the market and existing standards, we have devised a comprehensive portfolio to assure an ideal cap for almost every agro chemical application. We select our suppliers extremely carefully, only working with those who provide high-quality materials.

Our revolutionary 63 PROCURVE standard 63mm closure has been especially designed for HDPE/PET containers and offers tamper evidence and UN compliance via a standard PE foam liner (excluding IHS), as well as low torque (5-6Nm) at initial screwing after filling. It also ensures efficient recycling, easy opening and cleaning, and re-usable continuous sealing at the end-user side. 63 PROSLIT is a UN-compliant standard 63mm flat cap closure with ‘flex band’ TE concept (snap – slitted) that features high stress cracking resistance, a high tolerance towards HDPE neck finishing, a low tolerance towards counterfeiting and an attractive price/quality ratio. Our 45/63 PROSKIRT solution is a specific 45 and 63mm bore seal closure for PET packaging. The inner skirt feature guarantees perfect sealing in line with UN requirements.

UNITED CAPS invests heavily in research and development (R&D) Further inventions for the agro chemical sector are being conceived all the time, especially to meet the increasing demand for greener products that are also easier to use.
