Caps and closures is one of the largest and most complex rigid packaging market segments, with applications in areas such as beverages, cosmetics, chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Applications typically require a balance of stiffness and toughness, and can require high chemical resistance and/or excellent organoleptics, in particular for food contact applications (water and carbonated soft drink closures). The Dow Chemical Company (Dow) expertise within a broad portfolio of plastics offers significant benefits for producers wishing to innovate.
Dow offers a range of products suitable for caps and closures which offer benefits such as light weight, organoleptic properties, design versatility, and good chemical resistance to a range of products. These resins offer excellent processability in multiple technologies, including compression molding and injection molding.
