Closure Systems introduces 38D-KL dairy closure

Closure Systems International (CSI), a provider of plastic closure design, manufacturing and capping equipment systems, has launched the new 38D-KL closure for dairy beverages. Offering improved application performance and drop-down tamper evidence, this one-piece high-density polyethylene (HDPE) closure is designed to deliver performance in cold-fill, ambient, and high pressure processing (HPP) applications.

The new 38D-KL allows for minimal changeover disruption in manufacturing facilities, and is compatible with an HDPE and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) 3-lead finish, from single-serve to gallon-sized packages. In an attempt to deliver a more sustainable product with reliable performance, CSI designed the 38-KL with up to 40% post-consumer recycled (PCR) content made from its PolyCycle PCR resin.

PolyCycle PCR is sourced from recycled milk jugs and other HDPE beverage containers, providing an opportunity for closed-loop packaging and ensuring quality sourcing. Both the HDPE and the PolyCycle PCR version of CSI’s new 38D-KL closures are 100% recyclable.
